If you use Yeelights with Alexa/Google home and you want to keep that functionality, dont buy the Gateway. The gateway can only be used on the china server, and Alexa/Google Home can only be use don singapore server. So its one or the other.

Does it work with Yeelights? It says so in one of the questions, but the answer doesn't appear that convincing. Also, it looks like it needs a gateway, where do you get that it does not need a "bridge"?
Edited by: "susdev" 4th Dec 2017
Someone explain to me what this can do and whether it is compatible with Alexa?
Or Hue... Or Google Home?
You sure a bridge/ gateway isn't required?

Would expect it to work fine with yeelights assuming you have the gateway and are using the MiHome app
Would this use Wifi considering its only powered by a CR2032? looks more like a remote switch, like a wireless doorbell for example.

I currently have a set of Hive Lights installed, I'm guessing that they aren't compatible by any chance right? I have a family member at home who seems to always turn it off at the wall as it's 'quicker'.

It doesn't use WiFi, it uses Zigbee I think just like all other Xiaomi wireless smart home products, including things like £7 door sensors. The easiest way to use them is to get the £20 Xiaomi Gateway which all their stuff connects to, and then the gateway connects to your wifi. The gateway does more than just connect stuff though, it has a built in light and speaker too.
It's Zigbee. It will need the bridge. Good deal tho

Nice price thanks op. Don't think its much different than the smaller switch they do but looks more like a traditional light switch. Quite sure you do need the gateway

no way to keep the yeelights separate and use something in the middle (like ittt) to connect them?

Nope. Ive tried everything and it just doesnt work. Tried using multiple accounts on different servers, doesnt work. You can now add the gateway to the singapore server, but it doesnt work yet. So it looks like Xiaomi are trying to get the full chinese functionality available on singapore server, but taking an age.

that is a little annoying. I have bough a gateway and physical light switch to try out. Having alexa control isn't too important but I did hope it would work

I did the exact same thing 2 weeks ago. Wasnt until i tried to install it all i found out it wont work. You can stick the gateway and all other devices on the china server and they will all work perfectly, just no Alexa.
I have the wired version which in theory is the same (without battery) that you hard wire to control dumb bulbs. The switch works well as a physical Switch acting as a simple toggle on/off, however... I wanted to connect it to Samsung Smartthings (I have most of the Xiaomi smart stuff working fine) however struggling to connect. So I decided to connect it the Xiaomi hub (you cant connect to both) and although connected can not control it or see current state.

thats a pain, hopefully they will sort it. looking at the forums they seem to be starting to add more devices to the Singapore server. If the worst case is I have to do without alexa then that will be okay.
Have this and ordered another 5 for the rest flat, love it.

May I ask whether you need a neutral wire for these to work?

It doesn't. If you read the ST forums you'll see that there isn't a fully working device handler for this written yet.

Hmmm ok I didn't check but theoretically it should.
I sent for the Xiaomi gateway 4 weeks ago but nothing yet. Also the door sensor, remote control etc.

Given that my Xiaomi Smart 1080P WiFi camera wouldnt work on any of the servers I am beginning to think that I am wasting my time until they sort out their server issues. Wondering if they are even aware that we are having problems in the West.

Forgot to say that my Yeelights were simple to set up , paired easily with Alexa and are excellent.

Agreed. Any zigbee or z-wave device should work with ST but only where there is a working device handler.

New devices are being added to the Singapore server every couple of days. You can add them but not use them yet. So hopefully a few weeks and everything will be working perfectly.
Can somebody confirm if you can use this as a dimmer for Yeelight bulbs? Thanks in advance!
I'm confused. This isn't a switch? It's a bridge? It can't be hard wired? Is this just a remote for existing devices?

This is a switch, but its not a traditional light switch. It doesnt work via wiring, it works via ZigBee protocol. So you will need a Xioami Gateway setup for these switches to connect to, that then send the signal to the light bulbs to turn on or off. Downside is you need a gateway, upside is you can place the switch wherever you like.

I dont have any experience with the wired ones unfortunately so i cannot advise, but the wireless and wired ones will work fine, just not with Alexa or Google home yet.

Sorry to bring up old post.

I am looking at purchasing the wired version of this switch. As it appears you have one;

Can you confirm that once connected to wired you can;

Turn existing (non smart bulbs) using the new switch?

Can also turn them off via the mi app?

Thanks
