New light bulbs created by Yeelight appeared on the Xiaomi financing platform. Two companies are responsible for lighting products in the Xiaomi portfolio: Yeelight and Philips, and Yeelight makes better products. I am very happy with ceiling lamps that definitely win with Philips products. In terms of night lamps, both companies have created comparable products, but in the case of bulbs, Yeelight turned out to be better.
The new Yeelight Mesh bulbs were created in IoT technology, which mainly focuses on the Chinese giant. Light bulbs appeared on the Youpin 2 platform days ago and during this funding campaign they collected 915% of the amount needed. The 24 January 2019 will not be available for sale until the year. Due to the fact that I have a lot of readers using the Apple ecosystem, I will immediately point out that the new series of bulbs will not be compatible with the Aqara central unit cooperating with HomeKit. Light bulbs will not appear in the iPhone home app. We will manage them in the Mi Home application, in which the ability to control scenes with the help of the Siri voice assistant has been added today!
Yeelight Mesh a new set of bulbs on the Xiaomi offer
Light bulbs will be equipped with technology Bluetooth Meshthanks to this, the management of multiple devices at the same time is to be improved. The reaction time between our order and the reaction of the bulb is to be immediate. Currently, when you control the bulbs whether it is Yeelight, or Philips is clearly visible "laga", Bluetooth Mesh has to change it, and the new Yeelight bulbs are to be the first such products on the market. So far, each light bulb had to communicate with the router, Bluetooth Mesh provides mutual communication between the bulbs and the "closest" communicates with the router. In addition to a significant improvement in response time and increase in coverage, energy consumption will be reduced, it is a more economical way of communication. In standby mode, it consumes only 0,5W per hour.
Yeelight is not shredded and many products will come in for sale in the new technology. From the end of January, bulbs for a small E14 thread will be available, for a large E27 screw thread and complete ceiling luminaires which will be put into the gypsum carton. For the first time, the Xiaomi offer will debut with a recessed, movable fitting that can be directed at a selected angle.
You can buy Yeelight Mesh bulbs in a set or individually. Prices start at 49 yuan, $ 7 per piece. You can also buy a set for $ 218, at this price we will get 15 light sources and an AI speaker that recognizes speech and offers voice control of lighting. The price is sensational considering the competition, the Philips Hue kit costs $ 150. At this price we will only get 3 bulbs, and Xiaomi for $ 70 more offers up to 15 pieces and speaker with asystentem AI.
