New Yeelight Devices with a HomeKit Support
Xiaomi has one distinguishing feature. Before the release of the new device, she adds her devices to the Mi Home Application. After the next update of the application, namely, 4.16.2, two interesting devices can be found in Mi Home. When adding devices to Mi Home, in the Lighting section, we see the following picture.
By selecting any of the devices, you can see the following inscription.
“This product supports HomeKit, and can be paired and operated in Home app.”
Moreover, these devices are already available in our store for purchase, check out:
Xiaomi Yeelight LED Bulb;
Xiaomi Yeelight Smart LED Light Strip EU/US Plug RGB Colorful.
Firstly, YeeLight devices with HomeKit ready, as a rule, have the ability to activate the mode of compassing on Lan. For example: the bedside lamp Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Light 2, which we have recently reviewed, just has this opportunity.
This means that it works natively in Apple HomeKit and in parallel can be added to alternative home automation systems (for example, Home Assistant).
The second reason why this product deserves our attention is the high quality of the device, for such a low price. YeeLight lamps of excellent quality, have a good color rendition.
If the price does not change, and it most likely does not change, the new bulb will be the cheapest on the market, with the support of HomeKit.
