Here we have the setup guide for the Xiaomi Yeelight Tunable White (YLDP05YL). It’s pretty straightforward and it won’t be long.
[Important: Setup is from the YeeLight app. Not the Mi Home app.]
First unbox the bulb and twist it into the light socket. Ensure it is turned on. Next download the YeeLight app (iOS and Android). Launch it and tap on Login.
There will be a prompt to select a server to connect to. In this case, the recommended server is Singapore. I’m located in Malaysia so naturally I chose Singapore. Next sign into your Mi account. If you haven’t registered, you can do so here.
Next tap on ‘Add Device’ and select ‘LED Bulb II (White)’.
You will be prompted to switch on the bulb. If you haven’t yet then turn it on. There’ll be another prompt to access location permissions. Tap on Allow.
After discovering the bulb, enter your Wi-Fi password for your bulb to connect to your network.
Give it about a minute to connect. After it connects successfully, you can now control it via the app.
