Yeelight Wifi Bulb

The yeelight integration allows you to control your Yeelight Wifi bulbs with Home Assistant. There are two possible methods for configuration of the Yeelight: Manual or Automatic.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

  • Light - The yeelight platform for supporting lights.
  • Sensor - The yeelight platform for supporting sensors. Currently only nightlight mode sensor, for ceiling lights.

Example configuration (Automatic)

After the lights are connected to the WiFi network and have been detected in Home Assistant, the discovered names will be shown in the Light section of the Overview view. Add the following lines to your customize.yaml file:

# Example customize.yaml entry
  friendly_name: Living Room
  friendly_name: Downstairs Toilet

Example configuration (Manual)

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

# Example configuration.yaml entry
    - yeelight
      name: Living Room

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 integration and it tries to keep the connection open, which may not be wanted in all use-cases. Also note that bulbs in music mode will not update their state to “unavailable” if they are disconnected, which can cause delays in Home Assistant. Bulbs in music mode may also not react to commands from HASS the first time if the connection is dropped. If you experience this issue, turn the light off and back on again in the frontend and everything will return to normal.

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…). Information on how to enable “LAN Mode” can be found here.

In this section you find some real-life examples of how to use this light.

Full configuration

This example shows how you can use the optional configuration options.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
      name: Living Room
      transition: 1000
      use_music_mode: true
      save_on_change: true

Multiple bulbs

This example shows how you can add multiple bulbs in your configuration.

      name: Living Room
      name: Front Door

Custom effects

This example shows how you can add your custom effects in your configuration. To turn on the effect you can use light.turn_on service.

Possible transitions are RGBTransition, HSVTransition, TemperatureTransition, SleepTransition.

Where the array values are as per the following:

  • RGBTransition: [red, green, blue, duration, brightness] with red / green / blue being an integer between 0 and 255, duration being in milliseconds (minimum of 50) and final brightness to transition to 0-100 (%)
  • HSVTransition: [hue, saturation, duration, brightness] with hue being an integer between 0 and 359, saturation 0 -100, duration in milliseconds (minimum 50) and final brightness 0-100 (%)
  • TemperatureTransition: [temp, duration, brightness] with temp being the final color temperature between 1700 and 6500, duration in milliseconds (minimum 50) and final brightness to transition to 0-100 (%)
  • SleepTransition: [duration] with duration being in integer for effect time in milliseconds (minimum 50)

More info about transitions and their expected parameters can be found in python-yeelight documentation.
