Xiaomi was founded with a belief that high-quality technology did not need to cost a fortune. Today the company creates remarkable hardware, software, and internet services with customers worldwide. Its product range is increasing day by day and what basically started as a smartphone company has expanded its footprints globally in the “Smart Home Technology and Lightning.”
Under the flagship ‘Yeelight’ Xiaomi first released the Xiaomi Yeelight Lamp, followed by the excellent Xiaomi Yeelight Bulb (Color edition and White edition) and now they have released a Xiaomi Yeelight Light Strip.
We have seen many competing LED Light Strips, but none of them are like Xiaomi Yeelight Smart Light Strip.

CONSTRUCTION, DESIGN & PACKAGE
Similar to other Xiaomi’s products, it also comes in an all-white exterior. The item ships in a box, where all the items are packed neatly. Inside the box, you can find a strip itself that is already connected to the remote control and the power plug.
The Xiaomi LED light strip has a much better build quality than other light strips I’ve used. All the LED lights and connections are protected in a transparent soft PU material. The strip has an adhesive tape on the back and it’s quite flexible, so you can install it on your furniture easily.
Unlike Philips and Belkin’s efforts, Yeelight’s approach doesn’t require any kind of separate hub or connection to your router, but that’s because they connect instead over Bluetooth.
Apart from this, Xiaomi Yeelight Smart Light Strip is also Eco-friendly, bright, and anti-corrosive. The credit goes to mercury-free soft PU as the core material for Xiaomi Light Strip. The Length of the strip light is 2 meters while the cable is 3 meters. Xiaomi light strip is energy efficient 14 Watts (up to 80%) and has a long life (about 12,000 hours), thanks to the LED lights and the RGB circuit.
This smart LED strip can be controlled with the wired controller. You can press it once to power it on or press and hold it to change the color.
However, it is much more fun to control it wirelessly as the LED strip has a built-in Wifi and it can be controlled via the Yeelight app.
The interface of the app is very intuitive. You can change the colors of the strip, adjust the brightness, select from different flow and scene modes and adjust a variety of settings if you wish so.
In my opinion, the Xiaomi Yeelight Smart Light Strip is a very cool innovation to solve your lighting troubles. The price of around Rs. 3350 may sound a little steep for some but it is actually a lot cheaper than other smart LED light solutions e.g. Philips Hue light strip which cost upwards of $80 when it launced! Considering that the Yeelight strip even has extra features, it really becomes worth its price.
Unfortunately, it is not compatible with Apple HomeKit, so you can’t use iPhone’s Control Center or Siri to control the lighting. This is a smart product, but you will have to stick to the Xiaomi’s Mi Home ecosystem.
Moreover, the design here is a little cheesy, and it’s annoying that Yeelight has chosen to throw its brand logo between each set of bulbs. Up close, it simply looks like you’re trying to advertise the Yeelight brand itself.
Still keeping in mind all its pros and cons I would definitely say for that price the product is a must buy to cheer up your otherwise meh moods!!
