Energenie MiHome Now Plays With Yonomi
Setting Up MiHome and Yonomi
If you have a MiHome Gateway and at least one other MiHome device setup on your home network, you’re ready to start using Yonomi to bring your home to life.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed the Yonomi app, run Discovery to automatically sync MiHome and other compatible devices on your network. Discovery runs by default when you first create a Yonomi account, or you tap the Things tab and click on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner.
In a few seconds your MiHome account should appear in the list and you can follow the instructions to link it to Yonomi. Alternatively, you can go to Settings > Accounts & Hubs to link your MiHome account manually.
