Yeelight Wifi Bulb

The yeelight light platform allows you to control your Yeelight Wifi bulbs with Home Assistant.

Example configuration

To enable those lights, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: yeelight
        name: Living Room
        transition: 1000
        use_music_mode: True #(defaults to False)
        save_on_change: False #(defaults to True)
        name: Front Door

Configuration variables:

  • ip (Required): IP(s) of your wifi bulbs
  • name (Optional): A friendly name for the device.
  • transition (Optional, default 350): Smooth transitions over time (in ms).
  • use_music_mode (Optional, default False): Enable music mode.
  • save_on_change (Optional, default True): Saves the bulb state when changed from Home Assistant.

Music mode

Per default the bulb limits the amount of requests per minute to 60, a limitation which can be bypassed by enabling the music mode. In music mode the bulb is commanded to connect back to a socket provided by the component and it tries to keep the connection open, which may not be wanted in all use-cases.

Initial setup

Before trying to control your light through Home Assistant, you have to setup your bulb using Yeelight app. ( Android, IOS ). In the bulb property, you have to enable “LAN Mode” (previously called “Developer mode”). LAN mode may only be available with the latest firmware installed on your bulb. Firmware can be updated in the application after connecting the bulb. Determine your bulb IP (using router, software, ping …)
