After we were able to report at the beginning of the year that Yeelight wants to equip the Pro series with Matter, the time has now come: The new firmware update for the gateway is now available.

Yeelight should be a household name for most of you. We also keep reporting on the manufacturer’s intelligent lighting solutions. The Pro range, however, is not quite as common, but in addition to lamps, it also includes some sensors and switches.

Although most of the devices rely on Bluetooth mesh, the Yeelight Pro S20 gateway is used for smart and connected control. This already supports Apple HomeKit, Google Home and Amazon Alexa, but from now on it can also be used via the new Matter smarthome standard.

This is made possible by the now released over-the-air (OTA) firmware update. The manufacturer thus fulfills a promise made at this year’s CES in Las Vegas.
