Could I replace a ceiling light with this and if so would I then have to use the remote control to turn it on? East to install?
Doh, just realised this is only white which is no good for me. I just see Yeelight and assume it will be multi-coloured. Also one of the reviewers identifies a few problems which would put me off anyway. 1 - Remote control buttons are completely ILEGIBLE with a washed out grey ink !!! (Xiaomi Yeelight must be kidding with their customers...) 2 - The remote light intensity control is not STEP LESS. You have only two main light areas: Normal light and Moonlight. In the first, (the most important), you can choose only between four light intensity steps...(28W - 15.4W - 8.8W - 7W), you can't dim bellow 7W in normal light... In Moonlight, (less important), you have five intensity steps... (3.6W - 2.1W - 1.4W - 1.2W - 1.1W) It's ridiculous to have steps that differ only 0.2W or 0.1W between them... WHY ??? 3 - The standby function, consumes 1.1W, the same as the lower intensity step in Moonlight ??? (ridiculous...)
Is this simply one of their robotic vacuum cleaners stuck to a ceiling? https://www.gearbest.com/robot-vacuum/pp_009527392702.html?wid=1349303
This should be better than my current setup of having their large bulbs with the extra bulk of screw to bayonet adapters hanging from my ceiling. Downside might be that whole unit has to be replaced when it fails, rather than just changing a bulb and of course I'll have a bunch of Yeelight bulbs that I no longer need.
Good price, I have two of these and they work exceptionally well, the range of brightness is superb, if you're after really lighting up an area (one in bathroom and one on main landing) then you can't go wrong. Yeelight also has great integration with Google and Alexa now (has done for some time) and it works superbly although I am having issues with Acera sensors :(
