Yeelight RGB Bulb V2


#198

You can program the light whatever you want using this feature :wink:

Hm, that is disappointing. I don’t know whether it was on purpose, but leaving out the Voltage when saying you target 0.5 W standby consumption was a bit false advertising @weiwei. In overall we can say that there is almost no improvement.
I guess this kind of things happened before as well, so I hope you are more specific next time to avoid misunderstanding and frustration!


#200

As I have already explained, this power consumption is caused by solution changes (for Homekit capability) and the same reason for delay of Gen2 release


#201

funny thing is that the bulb is not ready for homekit yet.
the power consumption is high for something that it is not working and for those of us that don’t use homekit, we are getting all the disadvantages of it.

if the bulb needs to consume that much power for homekit… give us a way to disable these “features” so that we can drop the consumption (which i guess is something that cannot be done).

we have also mentioned that command response time is slower than V1 and issues with color accuracy.
it was mentioned that there will be a firmware update (“soon”) but no-one mentioned what will be fixed. is it just the color reproduction? and when is the firmware release date?


#202

latest version 1.4.2.0027

says that “it fixes bugs” but it doesn’t say what bugs.

color accuracy is still … not accurate. can we please have an actual red color?


#203

Alright, did not read your answer in the other thread.

I really hope that you did not rush the product to much and that all flaws can be fixed via a firmware update. I hope you did not introduce any hardware flaws by rushing this.

Also I really hope that there is a way to reduce power consumption via a firmware update, although I am rather sceptical about this, since if it was possible, why didn’t you implement it right away?

Time will tell, I wish you good luck with improving, so I can benefit from a better product.


#204

Even if some color are odd like red … The bulb II IS way better than first version And thé tunable white is great and really Warm I love it


#205

Hi, may I know when the second generation of bulbs will be available online on Tmall official shop?


#206

Already on JD.com, I don’t know when it will be released on Tmall.


#207

I finally got my first RGB bulb V2.
But I noticed that inside the MiHome app does not display the switch to on and off, as can be seen in the image.
Does anyone know if it is possible to change this in some menu?

Just got my Gen2 White bulb… everything working great :slight_smile: Just to add some positive feedback :slight_smile:


#209

in the app mi home do not appear the v2 bulbs unlike v1, they are on singapore server


#210

I have them on china server


#211

How much is the Yeelight app responsible for google home/assistance integration? I can change the light to “Sunset” or “Sunrise” with voice commands, but pretty much every other recommended scene does not work. Favorites also seem to be non-responsive to voice commands. Colour, brightness, off and on work though. Any ideas, anyone?

I have never owned a first generation bulb, but I do hope that everyone has their criticisms of the new bulb considered by the Yeelight team. I personally purchased this bulb because of the low power consumption that was given before release. I’m still happy with the bulb.


#212

Guys, what is the ID of the new V2 color bulb? I know white one is “ct_bulb” but I don’t know the color one.


#213

I’ve got mine few days ago, 4 RGBW V2.
Really good light bulb but the red is not so red, and the minimum brigthness is too bright :sunny:

Can this be fixed in a next firmware release ?


#214

Hey guys. Either I am blind or I am missing something but where can I purchase Gen 2 bulbs? If that helps I am in Europe/Poland.

Thx
