Hello,

is there an Yeelight service addon out there?

Or anyone want to add it to ambilight for example?

I've ordered 2.

Would be awesome if there would be a plugin to use them with cinema automation (movie plays = lights fade out; movie stops=lights fade on)

That is possible through python library: https://yeelight.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ , but it would be even more cool if these light could be used as cheap ambilights....

Thank you.

How do you want to use them as ambilight? I thought ambilight is behind the tv on every side and the hole lenght.
Using a bulb wouldn't be on the spot.
Please correct me if i am wrong.


I have a windows 10 pc running kodi.
I have heard of python but never did anything with it.
Do i need special tools to run it and do you know how to implement that in kodi?

Python is built in Kodi, all addons are in python. So that shouldn't be a problem.

Yes, it is on every side of TV but just by puting a light behind the tv cabinet i.e. you could achieve similar effect, or using 3 bulbs behind TV etc. But yeelight has more products than just a bulb there is yeelight strip which could be used for exactly this pupose.

Smile Smile They're pretty cheap and Xiaomi claims they should last 11 years... if they last 5 years for 16$ a piece it is a bargain! Smile According to docs it uses something for communication that really resembles JSON and it that is the case, it shouldn't be a problem to implement an addon. If not, then there's the python library which could be used. We'll see in a couple of weeks..

No, it is the one with color light; 16$ plus 1$ for slightly faster shipping...

I am working on it "blind" we'll see when the bulb arrives... Smile
