Control Yeelights using Homey
App Store Page: https://homey.app/a/com.yeelight
Currently Yeelights are supported within the Xiaomi Mi Home app. When the Xiaomi Mi Home App was first developed communication with Yeelights followed the same protocol as the Xiaomi Mi/MiJia WiFi devices. This is a reversed engineered protocol and is not very user friendly and stable. At some point a better method to control the Yeelights became available and I implemented support for that. Now the Yeelights and the Xiaomi devices have nothing in common anymore and I have decided to split off the Yeelights into their own Yeelight app.
This means the Yeelight functionality within the Xiaomi Mi Home app will not be developed and supported anymore. I’m aware of the hassle it will be but you are asked to un-pair your Yeelights from the Xiaomi Mi Home app and re-pair them again in the new Yeelight app.
This app allows you to control your Yeelights using Homey. All type of Yeelights should be supported.
Before being able to add your Yeelights as devices in Homey you will need to enable the “Developer Mode” or “LAN control” in the official Yeelight app. You can find this under the settings of your light within the Yeelight smartphone app.
I enjoy creating apps for Homey and try to support them as best as I can. If you enjoy using my apps a donation in return for the time I put into this is much appreciated.
