We reported back in early July that there were four fresh Yeelight compatible HomeKit lamps–two desk lamps, a bedside lamp, and a ground lamp. Of these, at least one of these appears to have been formally unveiled in China’s Xiaomi Youpin Store now.
As you can guess by the name, the Yeelight Star Floor Lamp is a floor lamp compatible with HomeKit, as well as the Xiaomi Home App (My Home) and Yeelight’s own application. Essentially, it is a floor lamp with an integrated set of LEDs housed in a unique enclosure intended to look like a standard lamp shade and behave like it.
The light itself is designed to emit full color, so you get cool to warm whites, as well as standard 16 m colors, covering 2700–6500K. The same control panel used on the Mi Bedside Lamp 2 is used to manage the lamp physically, using two touch-sensitive buttons as well as a brightness slide control.
The lamp’s complete height, including the base, comes in at 1,625m/64 in, with 246.5mm/9,705 in circular base. It can work with 100-240v at 50/60Hz in all areas and utilizes 12w of energy. As with all products from Yeelight, it utilizes wifi for its connection technique.
In China, the lamp is priced at RMB699, which is about £ 80.00 or US$ 99.00, although if and when it becomes available on third-party reseller sites such as GearBest and AliExpress, it will certainly be a bit more expensive, not least because of the shipping physical size of the product.
