Part 3 of the Yeelight series deals with the Xiaomi Yeelight bedside lamp. As already said Xiaomi continues to work on the complete coverage of the home with their own products. In the area of smart bulbs, we present the Yeelight bedside lamp next to the Smart LED strip and the Smart LED light bulb.
Meanwhile, a second version of the bedside lamp is available, which differs only in a few points from the previous one. The main difference is the implementation of WiFi. This finally allows the lamp to be controlled via Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or IFTTT.
Delivery & processing
The Xiaomi Yeelight bedside lamp comes in a sturdy cardboard box with a simple logo. The box contains the lamp, a plug and a written in Chinese instructions (as with the other bulbs already). For the plug one needs again an adapter, which is not supplied. The lamp measures 22.1 x 10.0 cm and is pleasantly heavy in the hand. The base is made of aluminum and the rest of white plastic. Again, the lamp makes a total qualitative and high-quality impression. Also in the bedside lamp 2, which is indeed sent in another box and has a rose-colored base, but has the same scope.
Connection and installation
The bedside lamp is simply plugged into the power cable and can then be turned on via the power button on the top. Then it lights pleasantly white. With the second existing button different colors can be selected. Afterwards I connected the bedside lamp directly to the Yeelight app. Practically, this works quite simply via Bluetooth. The Yeelight app has now been designed in a new design and thus much clearer. The second version includes a few additional modes, such as sunrise and sunset. A candlelight mode is also included, but works in my opinion rather less than a real imitation of a candle flickering.
In addition to the standard features, the Xiaomi Yeelight bedside lamp can be packed with other features, such as a sleep timer or the wake-up light that imitates sunrise and wakes you up gently and refreshed. In addition, you have the opportunity to connect the lamp with a Mi band, so that the lamp automatically turns off after falling asleep.
Features of the Xiaomi Yeelight bedside lamp
If you do not have your smartphone at hand or you do not want to be in the bedroom, you can also control the bedside lamps by touch. Apart from switching on or off or the constantly bright color, you can adjust the brightness and color via certain touch sequences. The edge with your finger “steer” controls the brightness, while pressing the mode button changes the color and just press the mode button starts the color change.
The Xiaomi Yeelight bedside lamps both radiate in a very pleasant light, ideal to enjoy the preferred bedtime reading in the evening. In addition, the connection with a Mi band is advantageous when the lamp then turns off by itself. Likewise, the timer and sleep functions, as well as the wake-up mode, I personally find practical. For the bedside lamp 2 now finally the LAN control has been implemented. Due to the small price difference, I would recommend the bedside lamp 2. Even if you do not need LAN control, you get the latest version with continuous updates.
