The Yeelight Smart LED is a smart home lamp from the manufacturer "Yeelight", a Xiaomi subsidiary mainly focused on home lighting. As one of the first internationally available Yeelight products, the smart LED lamp has one extensive upgrade experience. In the following test we compare the new Yeelight version 2 directly with the first version 1 of the cheap Philips Hue alternative.
Design, workmanship and delivery
The design of the pear has been redesigned. Yeelight said goodbye to the gray aluminum case. Instead, the 2 continues. Generation on one modern, in neutral white held case with check pattern, Different furnishing styles, the lamp adapts perfectly. The LED lamp is available optionally with an E27 or E26 socket, The processing is not objectionable. Of the What's in the box is not worth mentioning and includes only a manual in addition to the lamp. A lamp socket adapter is not expected to be included.
The commissioning It's easy to use and does not differ from other Yeelight products with WiFi connectivity. To use the smart features of the Yeelight V2, you need the Yeelight app, This is available for both Android and iOS mobile devices in the respective stores. Within the app you choose the setup of a new device. On Setup Wizard understandably leads through the respective furnishing steps, within which the bulb is connected to the WLAN. You should make sure that you are using the device used in the setup in a 2.4 GHz WLAN (not 5 GHz!), Since the data transfer of the wireless access data otherwise is not possible.
Luminous flux and consumption
According to Yeelight, there is an upgrade in terms of luminous flux and power consumption. Instead of 600 Lumens (Generation 1), should the luminous flux of the new generation 800 lumens be. The comparison test shows only a slight difference in brightness, which is barely visible when viewed with the naked eye.
Striking is one slight color deviation in the dark shades. Here, the 2 version shows a significantly high proportion of white, which is why colors really seem washed out. In particular, the red representation is visibly affected. However, according to Yeelight, this is just an error in the firmware that will be addressed in future updates. The color temperature lies between 1700K and 6500K, The manufacturer does not give information on the color rendering index (CRI).
The input According to Yeelight, 9 Watt has risen to 10 Watts. The slightly increased power consumption is traceable and shifts depending on color and brightness between 2 and 10.3 watts, Not understandable is the promised by the manufacturer, low ausfallende Power consumption in standby, which should have dropped from about 1.2 watts to 0.5 Watts. Several test measurements resulted in one increased power consumption of 1.3 watt in standby, When asked, Yeelight explains the increase in standby consumption by completely overhauling its internal architecture with the Apple HomeKit integration. Finally, it would have been necessary to decide on new components that have a higher power consumption. The lifespan is specified with 25000 hours.
Smart app control
The already mentioned Yeelight app is the control center of all Yeelight products. Features of the app These include remote controlled and time-controlled on / off, a free choice of brightness and color, an individualized color change and various scene modes, such as a fall asleep, wake-up or party mode. On inputs via the app, the lamp reacts only slightly delayed. Control signals are received directly from the Yeelight bulb Yeelight servers, which inter alia in China, Singapore, the USA and also in Germany are located. If the Yeelight V2 is integrated in a WLAN with Internet access, it communicates constantly with the respectively assigned server and is therefore remotely controllable, such as the mobile network. What on the one hand sounds practical, can definitely security risk be, because the remote access is not off!
A Voice Control is via Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant intended. Through the Alexa app, the Yeelight bulb was easily integrated in the test and also controlled. A support of the Apple HomeKit platform will be added later with a future firmware update, which should appear only in the fall of 2018!
