I own 3 of these and love them. These are pretty cheap so you get the quality you would expect but I must say that I mean this in a very good way. The 1080p quality is good enough for things that are fairly close, say 20-40 feet away the closer the better. The sound is good too. I can hear everything when listening and when talking through the camera it sounds pretty clear definitely understandable. It has many option for video storage, I prefer the TF card slot to hold my recordings, they also offer cloud service which I'll probably never use. So ya, for $60 bucks I have a pan and tilt that tracks, records, and stores video and has night vision that works great too. Yep, totally worth the buy.As for some of these other reviews about the camera being hacked, I don't buy it. Personally I'm running super secure WiFi behind an awesome firewall and a VPN, there is noway some "hacker" is going to try that hard to get into this camera. There are only two ways this could happen 1. If your network has been compromised or 2. If someone has your YI account password then therefor can access your cameras. I leave pretty far apart from my neighbors so I'll be fine, no one will try to hack this.Anyway, I say get these, they are worth the price!
I have to say, I am blown away by this camera. For the price, there is no better camera. I paid $50 with a 15% off button, but even at the normal price of $59, this is a steal.The picture quality (day and night) is excellent and the build quality is outstanding. You can see the specs on this camera in the listing, and it has every function I could want in an indoor security camera (Full HD, IR night vision, pan & tilt, two way audio, motion detection and tracking, etc). The app excellent. It is simple but fully functional and easy to use. This thing does it all and it does it for a fraction of the price of the competitors.I am planning to buy several more of these for around the house. This is an incredible camera at a budget price. You will not be able to beat this value!
I have 2 indoor cameras and one outdoor camera. I use the sd card to store my video. The app is great and easy to use. I wish I would have purchased these a long time ago. I love everything about these cameras and have many co-workers who have also purchased these and love them.I have them in my detached garage which is a good ways from my house. I used a wifi range extender plugged into the wall in my garage to extend the wifi from my house and have the cameras connected to it.I have virtually no lag and love that I can check in whenever I want and also get alerts if anything happens.(Update) After owning the cameras for about 5 months one of the indoor units started getting lines across the screen. This camera always seemed to have a little worse picture quality but I just blamed it on light glare coming from a window beside it. I called YI and they were very helpful. They had me do a few easy tests to see if any of them would help. They replaced it under warranty and I had a new camera in 2 days. The new camera had great quality in the same position so there must have been an issue with it the entire time.I would strongly recommend these not only because they are great products at a great price but because they back there products and have excellent customer service.
For the price, I wasn't sure what I was going to get with this camera, but it has exceeded my expectation. I live alone with my dog in a secluded area with a 300 foot gravel/dirt driveway. Several times I've had deliveries and drivers (mostly ones) are going off the driveway and tearing up my yard, especially in wet weather. Since I can prove any of this, I picked this camera up as a cheap way to possibly record the going on. While this is an inside camera, I had hoped to adapt it to work outside in a protected area as some have done. I haven't gotten there yet because I don't have an outside outlet yet. So I've been using it inside to keep an eye on the dog for fun and catch her up on the dining room table taking naps. Sorry, no pictures to share right now.While the alerts only show 10 seconds of the action, you can click to see all of the recorded motion. I put a 64GB card in it and weeks later it is still not full or near full. I originally wasn't happy I was only seeing 10 seconds, so I contacted customer support who were very responsive and informed me of the option I completely missed. At the end of the 10 seconds, the screen shows an option to view more. You can then record the part you want and save it to your device!Since I live alone, I have not tested the audio yet. I know my previous older cameras were not good at all with audio. Neither recording it or hearing me trying to talk through it. However the sound it has recorded has seemed to work very well. Additionally, my only entrance to my house is technically a back door that faces away from the driveway, away from the street, and it recessed a bit that makes it pretty meaningless to put in a doorbell camera or the likes.My real only complaint thus far is that the camera will not angle downward (when setting on its base) at all. While I don't want video of the base of the camera, it still seems that it could angle down at least 10 degrees or more without being a problem. So while it does rotate horizontally significantly more than my old cameras, has better video quality, has motion tracking, and the audio recorded has been hugely better. The fact that I cant set this up high on a shelf for temporary placement in my large sunroom to be up high and aim it downward slightly does hinder it's ability for me. I don't want to mount it on the ceiling, or upside down when I don't plan to permanently keep it in the sunroom. So just a little downward angle would have been perfect. I almost deducted a star for this, but given the price and functionality of this camera, I still think it is well worth the purchase. That and support was great for the one time I contacted them.
First, lets cut straight to the point most of you *should* be thinking. "These are not close circuit and run over Wi-Fi and through an assigned IP to a (by default) limitedly protected (and non regulated) Chinese app" Meaning these inherently can be viewed by the vender, its affiliates, its staff, third parties, and open to both inside and outside intrusions. Yes, yes that is the case.Now with that said, I just assume someone is watching me and my family all the time. So much so, that if I do something awesome, like throw a can from the TV room lazyboy and it lands in the trash in the kitchen... I get up pose for the camera and pop 2 or 3 shots off with my finger guns, blow them out, re-holster them on my hips and sit back down with a smile on my face.These combined with Alexa and smart watches, phones, cameras, smart tvs and every other completely invasive device I have all over my house, I just have given up on privacy. Everything at anytime could (or is) recording me, watching me, listening to me, following me... and I have just given up and accepted it. Its pitiful, I know... but now I openly live in the Truman show.Okay with that said, let me go on a bit about the cameras themselves. These are great.The price is so ridiculously low, that they are almost giving them away for free just to get entrance into your house.Quality inside and outside is very good. I can hear everything with them, and the record and playback feature is awesome. I have installed 128Gb micro sd cards into all of them and they record for over a week of all movement on the cameras.A couple key points:These are best mounted on the ceiling, not placed on a shelf like you would a baby monitor. Their view range is only really achieved fully this way.When you ceiling mount them, you need to go into the settings and invert (flip 180) the camera, this takes all of 5 seconds.The cord that comes with it is short, I put it into the ceiling in each room then connected them together with extensions cords so the cables were not visible.I have a 1 gig up and 1gig down internet connection at the house and so I have absolutely no lag at all with several of these all over and literally 20+ other smart devices. If you have slow internet this may not be the case for you.The app is awesome, live view and watch past view records instantly from anywhere even while driving (Don't do this while driving, or you may hit me as we are now both not paying attention to the road) . Keep in mind I'm in the city so there is at least 50mgb/s wireless reception everywhere, this may not be the same if your out in the country.Last I have successfulley installed the indoor 1080p 360 view cameras outside and 6 months of use its still working great.What I did was installed it under a covered area (carport, porch etc.) and used a hot glue gun to put a dab of hot glue over the sim card opening (once the sim was installed), the mic opening, and the speaker opening. I can confirm sound, mic, and sim card still work perfectly. Even though the cameras were completely covered I still worried about humidity and moisture getting in, and that helped seal the openings I was worried about... half a year latter, clearly it worked.The only negative, besides the complete lack of privacy, is the volume OUT of the cameras.It's soft, I mean its loud enough to hear if your sitting in the room and someone talks to you through it, but not loud enough if your watching the TV or listening to music and someone try's to talk to you through it. I wish either the volume was louder or you could pair the cameras with a Bluetooth speaker. The Bluetooth speaker pair would be ideal in view.Also... about the privacy, if they would allow a viewer for IP logging to at least view how many people were watching you, that would be nice. That way I could give a shot out to all my followers when there was a lot logged on. =)Well hope that helps!
