Work with IFTTT - brings everything together
If This Then That ( or IFTTT ) is both a website and a mobile app that launched in 2010 and has the slogan "Put the Internet to work for you". The idea is that you use IFTTT to automate everything from your favourite Apps and websites to App-enabled accessories and smart devices. IFTT has become the ultimate automation service for small tasks between Internet-connected services. Whether on the Web or with selected Apps on iOS and Android, IFTTT can handle anything its member service "channels" support. When user-specified events occur, follow-up tasks are triggered and handled.
There are numerous combinations ( also called "recipes" ) on IFTTT that can make your life easier. These links consist of just two elements: a Trigger ( If This ) and an Action ( Then That ) – For example, If you own a Xiaomi smart light, you could use IFTTT to automatically turn on the light every time you're tagged in a Facebook photo. In another example, you could set your light to be turned on, if motion is detected in your home when you're not at home.

Does this work with the Google Home speaker?
Do you know if you can control 1 bulb at a time through Alexa?

Do you know if you can control 1 bulb at a time through Alexa?

Yes you can. You allocate a name to each bulb in the mi home / yeelight app. Then you setup the yeelight skil with Alexa. Whatever your light is called just ask for that.

"Alexa, turn on living room light" or "Alexa, set bedroom light to 5%"

And she does it.
I may try it..thanks
So this works in a standard mount in the ceiling but still works over wifi?

Yeah, light bulb sockets provide the same power as normal mains sockets.

Sounds awesome! Purchased 3 Dots last night in Prime deal so might have to grab a few of these.

Noticed the coloured versions are also on a "flash sale" for £13.18 each
Price of item goes up if you try to use coupon code. £9.28 per bulb without code, £12.33 with code.

3 bulbs for £27.83 without code or £32.45 with code.

OP how did you get £7.79 please?

Are you logged in before using code? Adding multiples may stop code also.
Just ordered a colour and white one for £20 with the code
Shame code is only 1 time use, aw well, these seem to pop up quite regularly, so i'm sure i'll get the entire house done eventually.
Whenever I try to enable the yeelight skill it doesn't work!
It just doesn't appear in my skills
Any ideas why?

Once you've enabled it, log out of Alexa and log back in. It should refresh the skil list. Once you enable the skil in Alexa, does it forward you to the mi log in page?
Bought two of these. One came broken and the other does not work with the app (connects fine but does not control brightness).

Currently waiting on Gearbest support...
price goes up when I enter the code and says code has expired. Anyone got this to work recently or have the canceled the code?
Shame these are only in large ES screw fit.
What to buy to connect these to bayonet fittings? Seems impossible to find Edison lamp holders in electrical distributors?

So you don't need a bridge for these?

You can buy E27 to BC adaptors, they are only a couple of quid. Probably the easiest and cheapest way of doing it.

Just over £2 on Amazon or Ebay

I've got a colour one of these, and it's 600 lumens max, just like this one. It's pretty dim and I wouldn't recommend it for a ceiling light, but it might be good for a desk lamp or something smaller.
The code has expired, it increases the price for me also.
yeah, code has expired. Increases he bulb to +£12

Managed to enable the skill but it doesn't find the bulb. Also I can only use the mihome app to use the bulb. The yeelight app doesn't find it.
Time to buy a few more I think. Thanks OP

Bayonet adaptors from IKEA etc for a couple of pounds.

Yes they do work with GH however this needs to be set up via IFTTT. Its fairly simple to do, I purchased one to test it out a while back and have just ordered a few more. The only thing ill say, there is a minor lag from command to action but its not an issue.
quick question

If I put it in a ceiling light and don't switch it on for a couple of days, does it lose it's link (so stop working as a smart light) ?

or does it have to stay switched on at the light switch?
