Wi-Fi gateway allows you to control any compatible LED smart bulbs or fixtures with an Apple (iOS) or Android (version 4.3 and above) smartphone or tablet. This device uses the updated MiBoxer app. The gateway must be used with Wi-Fi-compatible LED bulbs or fixtures and can also be used with an RGB, RGBW, or RGB+CCT controller to allow for control of LED strips and other LED lights. Simply plug the Wi-Fi gateway into a computer with the included USB cord or into an outlet by using a USB wall adapter, and download the free MiBoxer app on your Apple or Android device. Connect to the Wi-Fi gateway using your device's Wi-Fi settings, and use the app to sync your LED lights (see PDF instructions for details).

Please note: MiBoxer and MiLight are compatible smart technology brands. Products under these names are able to work interchangeably with each other. This Wi-Fi gateway will work with the new MiLight 3.0 app only, but it is also compatible with any product that was previously controlled by MiLight version 2.0.

MiBoxer Ecosystem

Wirelessly control the brightness and color of the lights in your home using MiBoxer compatible light bulbs, light fixtures, and strip controllers in conjunction with a MiBoxer RF remote or WiFi Gateway.

The WiFi Gateway lets you take advantage of modern smartphone controls allowing you to control your lights from anywhere, set timers, and access voice controls. While the RF remotes allow for easy adjustment of your lights by anyone at any time without having to fiddle with or install another app, or in places where internet connectivity is spotty.

Both options are great ways to add versatile new features to your space's lighting. It is simply a matter of which method of control is better for you.

If you have questions about how the parts of the ecosystem work together watch the video above, read our knowledge base article with diagrams, or contact one of our product support specialists who will be happy to explain the differences more indepthly.


About using the Wi-Fi LED Controller Hub with LED Strip Lights

It is important to note that when using the MiBoxer Smartphone or Tablet Wi-Fi LED Controller Gateway (WIFI-CON2) with compatible LED strip lights then a controller must be installed with the strip. The WiFi Hub then communicates with the controller to turn the strip on, off, change brightness, or color.

A complete system is comprised of three parts. Your smart phone or tablet with the MiBoxer app, which communicates with the WiFi Hub, and the WiFi Hub then relays changes to the controller wired into the strip. This system only applies to LED Strip Lights. MiBoxer bulbs, and flood lights simply require the hub as their controllers are built into the bulb or fixture itself. Listed below are the compatible MiBoxer strip controllers.

Dependent on a server in China...

This new Wi-Fi gateway "works" - but everything is routed through an external server in China.

If MiBoxer ever goes out of business, or the server is ever blocked or unavailable, your lights will not work via Alexa or even via the iPhone or Android app.

You also have to trust that the tunnel from your home network to MiBoxer is never used for any nefarious purposes beyond just adjusting the lights. But the actual details are hidden, so there is no way to know.

Older versions of this Wi-Fi Gateway worked locally without a need for an external connection, and they could be integrated into more advanced home automation systems. The new gateway design is completely locked down, and will ONLY work through the MiBoxer service.

This makes the whole MiBoxer product lineup suspect to me, and not something I am eager to invest in long-term. I hope they change direction and improve this!

Nice box. Lousy instructions

Using this simply exchanges using the IR remote control for your lights to using a remote control app on your phone to control your lights. Although it does give you the option to control the lights when away from home.
Be aware that the included instructions are horrible and that the app they say to download and use may not be the correct one to connect to the wifi box you just purchased.
I went through three mi-light apps in the app store before finding the correct version.
Also, "turn of(sic) your lights" doesn't make a whole lot of sense, not does it explain how to link the lights/controller to the app. You do not simply turn-off the lights.
You need to UNPLUG the light controller, then plug them back in and immediately press the LINK button on the phone app.
I'm glad I made the purchase. Not so glad having to spend a few extra hours searching for help on the internet.

Extensive Review you should read before buying

Once you figure out what app to use (the instructions are horrible), it's pretty easy to add new lights and configure. You will need to program them immediately when the light is turned on. If you plan to do landscaping light, it's easiest to pick a fixture that you can access easily and program each of your bulbs there, label them, then go install.

As far as the box itself, the signal is extremely weak overall and I have not figure out a way to amplify. I'm unable to control all of my landscape lights and even though this is RF, it seems to not connect to lights that are out of direct line of sight (another side of a wall, behind a thick plant). The only work around is having multiple units and connecting some of your lights to one and the rest to the other. Keep in mind the box is not waterproof and to connect to exterior lights, it will need to be outside. Plan accordingly on the install, under an awning, vacuum seal in in a small plastic bag, etc. Need a better option...

You must have an internet connection for this one to work- it will not provide its own network as some state this MiBoxer requires internet just to connect to the boxes - I ordered the milight older version that produces its own network and it works much easier in areas where you don’t have WiFi - with WiFi this controller works flawlessly- unfortunately I was using the controller for a neighborhood sign backlight and no WiFi was available rendering this thing worthless and another cost to buy the older version
