First Time Setup (WiFi Mode)
To set up the lamp for the first-time operation you will need to download the app from google play / Apple app store and create an account and pick china mainland as a preferred location. After this step is done, you will need to login inside the app and select the device under ‘Add device’ -> ‘Lighting’ -> ‘Mi Bedside Lamp’.
You will need to press the main power button for about 5 seconds until the device starts flashing. In this state, the lamp should be discovered in the WiFi settings as ‘yeelink-light-bslamp1_mibtcf57‘.
n this last step the app will be asked to enable your mobile phone location-based services and the app will do a quick scan of nearby devices and if you have a router “behind” your LAN connection you will be asked to select it. Once this step is completed, the lamp will be recognized and connected.

As expected from lamps based on LED technology and according to my tests, adjusting the light intensity in white color mode, the power consumption in wattage when operating this lamp ranged between 3.2W – 13.4W in the highest brightness settings.
A defiantly must have smart lamp worth buying that is not too expensive, it combines both high build quality, clean elegant design and great innovative features. Although I have zero complaints about this product, from a user standpoint, what I missing in this product is maybe the option to adjust the white light brightness below the minimum value set by Xiaomi, so it can be also used as a very low light night lamp.
