New version Xiaomi Yeelight 800 lumens RGB bulb £16.35 @ Store: Yeelight Store AliExpress

Found 29th Mar
This has just been released,It is $22.90 so use fee free currency credit card to get the 16.35GBP.

I can only find it available on Ali express at the moment. The main difference between this and the original is that this one has an extra 200 lumens at 800 compared to the original at 600 lumens.

This seems a good price considering it has just been released. No doubt the price will drop in the coming weeks or months, but for those who have been waiting for this, wait no further...... well maybe a few weeks delivery time of course!

I highly recommend yeelight and can't wait to get my hands on this brighter (as is actually needed in some situations).
I am going to describe my set up for people to understand how this can be used, but first thing, you need E14 to E27 adapters or BC to E27 as in a lot of cases you will have different fitting to the E27 ones available won't be half decent for the wife to like them.

I have a 2 bedroom flat with front and back door:

Front door -
Door sensor that turns hall light after 5 pm and after midnight sends a notification to my phone and gateway plays an alarm sound.

Hallway -
Gateway where everything is connected.
Body sensor & yeelight that is exposed in a silicone pendant (quite cool got it from Amazon), the light is programmed to come on when detects movement at certain times of the day.
The wall switches are on on position all the time as the sensor does the work.

Small bedroom -
Aqara wireless switch ( removed normal switch and jointed the cable to be permanent at the bulb) .
Yeelight in another blue silicone pendant.
Temperature sensor.

33543567-7OPJm.jpg

Master bedroom -
Aqara wireless switch but 2way, 1 side turns the 2 ceiling yeelights (light fitting from B&Q) and the other side turns the the bedsides lamps on, that are the Phillips yeelight white ones.
The bedside lamp also have one aquara switch each where can double click and turn all lights off in the bedroom or just one click for one only.
Humidity and temperature sensor.
Mi Security cam as baby monitor.

33543567-0gC1Q.jpg
Living room -
Xiaomi bedside lamp in one corner
Yeelight in another corner fitting
Philips ceiling light (comes with remote)
2 way wall switch - left for corner and right for ceiling, clicking both at the same time turns everything off.
Switch for the corner lamp that is next to sofa.
Cube controller on table.

Bathroom-
Wireless switch
Yeelight ( here is where I need a brighter one ) in and ip rated fitting.

33543567-lkjLA.jpg
Kitchen-
Xiamomi led ceiling light that comes with remote
Wireless switch
Door sensor that turns light on when coming from outside after 5pm or plays an alarm sound on the gateway

Thanks! I guess i will wait a bit for a coupon to drop !
About time too! . Decent price for such a new release but I'm (Gen 1) Yeelighted to the brim (including several spares) and very happy with them so not tempted to upgrade. Heat added.

PS I wonder what excuse Hue fanboys are going to give now Yeelight is matching Hue's lumens spec?

The new version suppose to be a lot more power efficient in standby.
Can these work with Google home?

The first version worked with Google Home, so this should as well I presume.

If you upgrade, I may buy 1st gen of you :-D
More than happy with the original but once these get to around a tenner or so I might dabble.
Also, would be nice if these are zigbee compatible
Incidentally, any users had any stop working? I've had 10 on the go for months and not a hint of a problem. There's sometimes a perception with cheaper stuff that the quality control may not be what it should. But maybe Yeelights are the 'proper' price and Hue are a rip off?

I bought 3, one of them failed on the second day. Gearbest refunded no problem though. I now have 4 and have had no issues.
This is still overpriced. I got these on ebay 1050 lumens (very bright) and works brilliantly with my Google home mini and alexa. Much better to get from the UK with quicker delivery. m.ebay.co.uk/itm…759?hash=item25ec4ed307:g:s~AAAOSw1RVadiud

An unbranded product is not inferior. It's probably made in the same factory. This is the same reason why a generic drug is cheaper than the branded equivalent. This is also why people shop in Aldi or Lidl instead of marks and Spencer.

There's no way of knowing until you use it. It's accepted wisdom that you always pay less for unbranded stuff. Who manufactured it? What's their track record for reliability/safety? What other products do they make/sell? What reputation do they have to uphold? You can't honestly answer any of these questions. Hence you pay less.

Yes.

I mean Hue stuff definitely is a rip off, you pay like 3x the price for something marginally better. It's clear they're over priced even if there weren't anything to compare with, they're like £40+ for an RGB smart bulb and they probably cost like £4-7 to make(otherwise how can Xiaomi make a version for £15).

Most Home Automation stuff is over priced really. Like a basic door sensor would cost £25+ whereas an Xiaomi one that I use that does the same thing and has been 100% accurate so far costs about £7. It's very basic stuff inside it.

For a product to be sold in the UK it must be CE certified. Hence, all Chinese products (branded/unbranded) have gone through the same testing process.

I had one stop working after about 10 minutes, Yeelight support wasn't able to really help but they were lots of other people having similar issues! Weirdly it was fine on someone else's network but refused to reconnect on mine. I've a second one that so far is behaving though.

I have 3. They all stopped connecting to the wi-fi, and despite loads of troubleshooting I didn't manage to get them to work again. So now they just work as a normal light.

Do you peeps leave them on stand by?

Your comment is so ironic. I merely shared a product that I have bought that has higher specs and is cheaper. This is a deals site after all. I have nothing against Yeelights and voted hot. You seem to have taken it personally. I have now bought five of the 'unbranded' bulbs and grouped them. It's a great product and it works for me. I just wanted to share my experience. If you check the feedback on ebay it seems others agree with me. I hope that you have a lovely Easter.
Can this be used with Google assistant on your smartphone rather than having a Google Home or mini..?

I've had quite a few of these different bulbs now and the difference is very noticeable... These cheaper unbranded ones I've had are noticeably inferior to the yeelights I've now replaced them all with.

I'm not trying to poop on the ones you linked and If you're happy with the others then fine, I'm not going to tell you how to kit your house out, but all I'm saying is if you were to try the Yeelights or Lifex models you'd be able to see the difference.

Bizarrely it does say Lemon in the description! . Luckily it does state 16 million colours further down.

Is that ironic in the American sense? Look, i just replied to your assertion that these Yeelights were overpriced as the unbranded ones you bought were cheaper to point out ALL unbranded stuff is cheaper than the branded stuff then went on to explain why (and illustated my point by asking you questions about the ones you have which you can't answer). If you can't see my POV here then TBH I won't waste any more time trying. Life's too short...

That doesn’t work for me as I have the gateway with the entire flat full of stuff connected to it. And if you try to add switches, buttons, door sensores and other devices to the Singapore server they don’t come up.
Yeelights vs hue on this site is like Nintendo and Sega all over again

Hue is expensive, needs a hub which I'm not a fan of but they do have lots more fittings for their lights. Yes, I can get adapters but the yeelights are big as it is, adapters make them look worse (wall lights).

But I'm a massive xiaomi fan. Have yeelights, watch, the home automation products.
How’s the reliability of yeelights (say the previous generations)? Been looking to get some colour ones but heard poor reliability of the previous gen

This is how I use the 1st generation bulbs, so I’d assume these to do. I’ve got 3, all work seamlessly for a year now. They make house parties so fun

As a pharmacist, I can assure you that a generic drug is not manufactured in the same factory as the innovator's product!

Generally speaking, you are very naive if you think an unbranded copy is not inferior to the innovator in every case.
If you want Google home then choose Singapore server. If you want home automation (sensors etc) then for now, the full list of devices are only on the Chinese server. Chinese server don't do Google home/assistant.

So depends what you be your main way of using it.

I've got it on the China server as I have door and motion sensors connected to yeelights.
