● Continuously turn the bulb on and turn by its physical switch 5 times, with 1 second internals.

● After the light color changes, and the bulb is lit again, the reset is finished.

● Don't turn off the bulb.

● Open the Mi Home app, follow the connection operation guide to connect again.


2. The WiFi router doesn't set appropriately

● Xiaomi Yeelight RGBW smart LED bulb only supports 2.4GHz WiFi (5GHz WiFi is not possible). Simply change the WiFi router signal frequency setting, if it doesn't support to set the signal frequency, change other matched WiFi routers.

● And sure, the phone needs to feature the WiFi function.


4. WiFi router security level is high
