I’m still a noob when it comes to Home Assistant.
My first attempt to control the XiaoMi Yeelights was via IFTTT . This solution is simply too rigid - every action has to be set via a IFTTT applet. While this solution works the whole experience becomes rather clumsy as the phrases are more or less fixed. It just does not feel like a smart way of doing things.
Next I tried to control the Yeelights using XiaoMi wireless switches. This method worked extremely well but at the end of the day this is not voice control. Folks have to locate the switch, and know action to do turn the lights on/off or change the brightness. This is not my goal for the ultra house. I want to be able to use my voice to turn things on/off and not be tied down to hard coded phrases.
The user experience has to be good. And I found it via Google Assistant Home Control. Check out the video below.
My slow Internet aside (high latency), it’s the best user experience I have found so far!
