UI Guy ,


While I really enjoy the Yeelight light fixture, this app is difficult and frustrating to use. I am a UX Designer (and have worked at Apple, Palm & Yahoo!), so I speak with some knowledge.

The Yeelight app breaks UI standards throughout its interface. Worse, though are the bugs. If I set up a “flow” and save it as a “favorite,” and then set up a second flow with different parameters and also favorite it, the app obliterates the settings for the first flow I saved. Every time. There is no user-friendly error handling that I see; the app just resets all the flow parameters and the favorite becomes a static one-color choice.

It’s clear that the app developer(s) don’t have a good grasp of iOS/iPadOS guidelines (or good UX principles in general), nor are they fluent in English (not a bad thing in-and-of-itself, but at least spend the money to have the UI text localized correctly if you’re less than fluent).

Foe me, the app ruins the user experience for the hardware, which is a real shame.

This app is crap

I bought the strip light through a crowd funding campaign and after several failed attempts to pair the app with my network it finally worked—for about two years, anyway. About 3 months ago the app inexplicably lost connection; tech support’s response was to ask me to send them a video of me going through the steps. It’s a little hard to do since the camera is part of the phone that has the app but I suppose I could ask someone to do the recording.
But that’s besides the point. That’s not a viable solution, it’s taking a pass. I’ve followed the instructions repeatedly and I’ve gotten nowhere; the app fails to connect, never progressing beyond 0% even after 20 minutes of processing. There’s no alternate way to troubleshoot, and I’m just expected to repeat the process ad nauseum, which I believe I’ve reached. I’m done. It’s a shame, the device is poorly supported but when it works it’s great. I guess it’s time to try a different product.

Not for streamers

I bought over 10 yeelights to be used with Lumia Stream so I can use them in my Twitch streams. A year ago these lights worked extremely well with Lumia. It was very responsive and worked flawlessly. Then they released an update that first broke Lan control and then after they so called “fixed” it, the lights barely stay connected and most of the time don’t even respond with Lumia. I’ve already sold almost every bulb that I could so far.

I raised my concerns thinking it was Lumia's fault for a while until they came back and told me it’s Yeelight and they’re not even responding. Yeelight, you should support the apps that support you. It makes you and the brands look bad when the users are the ones taking the hit

If you’re a streamer get a better brand that supports Lumia like LifX or even Philips wiz which works better than these craps on Lumia
