Xiaomi Yeelight RGBW E27 Smart LED Bulb £10.38 Delivered From Gearbest. (Alexa Compatible)

UPDATE: I've expired the deal as the code is no longer working but the 'normal' price at 12.53 is still the cheapest around and an approx 37 quid saving on a Philips Hue RGB bulb.

Use code 11nov122 to get them at this price.

Easily the cheapest price at the moment (though they have been cheaper a few weeks ago) for these excellent Alexa-compatible, 16 million colour smart bulbs.
I have my house pretty much 'Yeelighted' up and they work brilliantly for a fraction of the cost of Philips Hue (plus they don't need a 'bridge' to work like Hue does).

Please note: E27 (screw) fitting only. Adapters are available very cheaply at several places should your fittings be bayonet.

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.

The product has passed Alexa certification and could be voice controlled by Amazon Echo

Yes, my electrician originally came out with the 'you really shouldn't buy bulbs from China' line until he got one out of its packaging. Very impressed with the build quality he was. I did also state that even though he'd never heard of Xiaomi they are a massive Chinese corporation and, indeed, had a higher market capitalisation than Sony when they last did a round of public funding in late 2014!

This is true. Also the companion app is well made and although bulb commands are going through Singapore servers - bulbs are really responsive.

There is also developer mode which I'm tinkering with at the moment, so ideally I want to control the bulb with amazon dash button.

Heat for the price although been cheaper in the past.
Thanks - been waiting for a drop on these - gonna grab a couple and replace my Hue setup I think!
does anyone know where you can get ceiling pendants with E27 fittings? I don't mean/want a converter, it would overhang the lampshade at that point. really struggle to find e27 for celing with lampshade
Are these better than aeotec bulbs?

You can get them on amazon/ebay - to be honest tho, easier just to buy an adaptor and lower your shade - most shades have adjustments. These bulbs are slightly bigger than normal ones too, so you might have trouble anyway...

Already got two of these and I love them, dimmable lighting is great, as is being able to say to my phone 'ok Google, turn off the bedroom lights' and have it just work.

We got this one and this one - they're both E27 and work perfectly with Yeelight bulbs.
Code expired- purchased one anyhow.

AFAIK these wouldn't attract customs charges even if Gearbest put the full order amount on as they are lower than the threshold figure?

Sorry, I meant ive bought previously when they were nearer the £6 mark. sorry for the confusion
I've got four Hue bulbs and two Yeelights. The Yeelights required two adapters from E27 to B22 and E27 to E14 as the lamp they were going in didn't have the E27 connections. Everything works perfectly.

In comparison to Hue, there's really nothing to complain about. In fact, the lack of Hub makes adding the Yeelights "easier".

What's really good about these is the Yeelight app comes pre-programmed with scenes, two of which I use extensively. One of them sets the lights to a 15 minute dim cycle in the evening, and the other sets the lights to a 15 minute wake cycle in the morning. The latter scene makes waking up in the Winter months much, much easier. I find myself waking up a minute or two before my alarm quite refreshed.

I made two accounts in the Banggood website to cash in on the new customer codes. I don't need any more of these bulbs, but I suspect they may begin to increase in price in the near future and I might just have to invest in some more to dot around the house.

I believe there is a new version imminent so it may be that these are being sold off. But even at 12.53 compared to Hue they are an absolute steal...

I think the poster was talking about a white ceiling pendant, not a bulb.
Anyone know how to get the new customer app discount please? Can't figure out how. Cheers.

Hi how u switch off using phone ,is it using google home or there is a app which u can download thanks
Google assistant has some settings pages for home automation. One of those allows you to link to other services, e.g Hue, Nest, whatever and one of the supported services is Yeelight. You might need the Yeelight app for the initial setup though I'm not sure about that.

No need for Google home, though it makes the experience better as I can't guarantee my phone is always listening and able to understand me.
