Yeelight / Xiaomi bulb problems?

Posted 11th Dec 2019
Anyone else having problems with their Yeelight bulbs? For the last 2-3 weeks I’m getting constant problems controlling them via Alexa or their own app. Alexa reports things like can’t find / or not responding when sometimes the lights do, sometimes don’t.

I’m guessing it’s not a local issue as they don’t have problems connecting to WiFi (mostly - well none until I reset and tried to reconnect). Plus they’ve been running fine for a year +.

Any suggestions?

Mine played up yesterday, hope it's not the shape of things to come
Yeah I have 2, both super long pauses via Alexa before they react, seems to depend on the time of day, sometimes instant sometimes lengthy pauses.

They are aware and seem to be working on it.…758

Thanks Spears, good to know it’s not just me. Thing is they completely disappeared from their own app last week and only deleting and reinstalling would fix it - well for all but one, couldn’t get that reconnected for days. I tried changing the server but that made no difference.
