Hi Yeelight team.
I cannot connect my yeelight strip to my app. But I have isolated it to some problem with my home wifi. (when I created hotspot on 1st phone and connected strip with 2nd phone it worked).
Do you have the list of potential settings which can influence connection? (e.g. special characters in wifi name or password, length of wifi name or password) I am happy to work debug with you :).
Few info from my side:
Mi Account: 1755620339
Tried pair with 4 apps and 2 systems: Yeelight iOS 3.1.10 (SE), Android 3.1.11 (S4), Mi Home iOS 4.7.1 (SE), Android 5.1.10 (s4)
Wifi Name: TrojanSpy:Win32/Banker.ADN
Wifi Password Length: 13 characters
Note: other mi home smart gadgets (sensors, gateway, switch) works
sorry now I get your question. I have used Android phone as hotspot phone and connected with iphone. this worked even with iphone.
step 1 OK - I can see the lamp’s wifi
step 2 OK - I don’t have any special character in my pass, only numbers, uppercase and lowercase
step 3 not OK - I have problem with step 3, that i cannot see the lamp in the DHCP list. Based on your experiences do you know what setting can cause the lamp is not connected?
Note1: I have the router set up from my ISP and was not doing any special configuration myself.
Note2: I had no problem to connect Xiaomi Gateway to my wifi
I am using 2.4G.
And yes my ssid is long and meant to “scare” people… Unfortunately I have connected by whole smart ecosystem to this wifi and i am afraid that if i need to change the name of my wifi i need to do whole configuration again from the scratch.
Same problem over here. My 3 lightbulbs work perfectly. I bought a lightstrip ( color) and faced all the problems that you described. My network recognizes the strip but it stays at 0%.
All the tips from this forum didn’t work. I ask my buddy ( ict specialist> allso has the yeelight colorbulbs) to check the lightstrip at his place, but the same problem. It doesn’t work. ( we tried routersettings, created a hotspot, newest software, ifttt, etc) Really frustrating!
Doesn’t help you much, but I posted this to let you know that you’re not the only one!
I tried again the trick with creating mobile hotspot with the same name as is my home wifi and now it worked.
I have used android phone to create hotspot with the same name and password as my wifi and connected the led strip with my iphone. (note: i was still using the versions of applications mentioned in my original post.)
