Using IFTTT and Voice Control to control lights isn’t as effective as initially anticipated - Google Home kept mis-interpreting what I said and go off some wild tangents. An easier way is to use the XiaoMi Gateway (Zigbee) and wireless switches.
This tutorial will show you how to register your Gateway into your Home Assistant, and then show you some simple automation examples with the XiaoMi Zigbee devices, like:
- Use a XiaoMi switch to turn on/off a Yeelight
- Use a XiaoMi switch and Gateway as a door bell
- Use a XiaoMi switch to turn on/off a XiaoMi smart plug
This tutorial is based on the standard documentation for XiaoMi Gateway.

in point 5, with version 2.66.2, I needed to press 5 times, or more, not in the blank area above the version, at the bottom of the screen
