    Any hints or help wouild be very nice
    Thanks in advance

The Yeelight binding is available via PaperUI

Sorry, but i cannot see it:

Are you on 2.4 snapshot? Is it stable enough for daily use?

No not really, it breaks once in a while but quickly fixed
I have a stable machine as a backup

Have you enabled remote repository in your paperUI/Configuration/System?

Remote Repository is on:
And Marketplace is on:

Tested the jar-file from jfrog=> works as expected.

This topic dropped of my radar.
How did you install the binding in the end?

I found the jar-file at jfrog. installed 2.4 snapshot and it works with openhab 2.3

Having the same issue. No yeelight binding is shown in paperui addons. Access Remote Repository and Marketplace switches are on. What could be the matter?

I have the same issue. The binding doesnt appear. I activated the marketplace and legacy bindings… in the end I am now using the Xiaomi Mi IO Binding… but I dont have a smooth connection with my lights… so I had hoped this binding could help. Any ideas?

Hey @BlaXun,
as long as the yeelight-binding is not stable (2.3 vs. 2.4), I’ll use the following python console app with exec command binding:

Maybe it is a workaround for you.


I’ve add the Yeelight binding from lates Testing version (no stable). I’ve added a Color Bulb.

In the Items I find only Color and Color Temperature but I don’t find the switch to turn it On/Off.

How can I manage it?
