Best Smart Ceiling Light: Yeelight YLXD01YL Review

In
this article we’re going to review the smart ceiling light Yeelight
YLXD01YL. Getting smart lighting in your house is an easy way to get
started with home automation.



Smart lights allow you to perform “smart” stuff, like schedule the
lights to turn on or off whether you are at home or not, control the
brightness and tone, set timers and much more. You can control them with
voice commands, using your smartphone, or using a regular wall switch,
and you can even integrate them with your home automation system.

Unboxing


The Yeelight YLXD01YL came nicely packed in a really nice box (as usual with Xiaomi products).


  


It came very well accommodated with very thick styrofoam. Everything was in a very good condition.





The package includes the ceiling light itself, some screws to mount
the light on the ceiling, and a Bluetooth remote control. You’ll also
get a small instructions manual. My manual came in Chinese, but I was
able to find the instructions in English. You can find the 




Design


The Yeelight YLXD01YL has a very simple, elegant and modern design.
We personally love the white frame color, but there are other color
frames: blue, red, and yellow. The ceiling light has a reasonable size
with 32cm (12.6 inch) diameter. This design protects the lights from
dust as well as flying insects.


The product consist of two parts: the metal frame and the LED light.
The frame is very sturdy and all the materials are really high quality.
The metal frame has two labeled connectors for the AC wires. You just
have to press the red buttons and insert the wires on the holes –
there’s no need to use a screwdriver or any other connectors.




Warning: make sure that all connections are done while the mains power is off.


Once the frame is mounted on the ceiling, you need to connect the
lamp itself. Connecting the lamp is very easy. You press the lamp
against the conector until you hear a “click” sound.


The lamp has a latch on each side that you need to press if you want
to disconnect the lamp from the frame. Again, everything is really high
quality and the finishes are just great as shown in the figure below.




Connectivity


The Yeelight YLXD01YL supports both Wi-Fi and bluetooth. It works
with the Yeelight app or the Mi Smart Home app that you need to
download.




It also comes with a remote control that allows you to control the light via Bluetooth. The remote comes with battery included.




A really interesting feature about this lamp is that it can be
connected with the Mi Band, and can shut down automatically when it
detects you are falling asleep. I personally use a Mi Band and this
feature seems a really great idea.







The Yeelight YLXD01YL can also integrate with other services like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and IFTTT.


Controls


The Bluetooth remote control and the Yeelight app allow you to turn
the lamp on and off, adjust the light brightness, and tone.
Additionally, you can also set the moon mode, that imitates the moon for
a relaxing night environment.




Moreover, the application allows to to perform other smart tasks like:



  • Set timers;

  • Create modes or chose between preset modes;

  • Set schedules;

  • Activate developer mode to integrate with third-party services;

  • Connect with the Mi Band;

  • Update firmware;

  • Etc…

Wrapping Up


To wrap up, we’re very impressed with the quality of the smart ceiling Yeelight YLXD01YL. It may seem an expensive smart light, but it’s really worth the price, because it’s high-end quality. The finishing touches are great, its design is simple and modern, and its frame is very sturdy.

Additionally, it’s rare to see both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in such smart
lights. The remote control is a great addition and can be very handy if
you don’t want to access the app every time you want to change some
light settings.

The Yeelight app performs great! I have other Yeelight products and I can control all of them from the same place and even integrate with the Mi Band. The app is easy and intuitive to use, and allows you to play with several settings and controls. The Yeelight YLXD01YL can also be controlled using the Mi Smart Home app and integrate with other Xiaomi Home Automation products. Moreover, the developer mode allows you to integrate with third-party services like IFTTT, Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
