  • Yi home camera

    By A321CAPT
    I have 5 indoor cameras and 2 outdoors. Love them, however, it is only as good as your internet service provider, so as long as signals for WiFi and internet speed are good, they are the best! Could be a little better quality on zoom in, but not so bad. I have still issues signing in on my PC, it is a stubborn program and doesn’t recognize my password. Help desk responded right away (w/in 24 hrs). But issue not resolved. Other then that, I am happy, on iPhones is perfect, on iPad no app, so must use the phone app. Overall, a very good product.
  • App Fails to Connect

    Cameras will not load on the app even though they appear to be connected. I tried to reset one of them but the QR code will not load

    It works well
  • Exactly what I was looking for

    By ddaq89
    A nice wide viewing range, customizable sensitivity and sensor view, easily managed, perfect for what I was looking for! Would love to see the 10 sec clips extended to 20 or 30 seconds in the future
  • Doesn’t work

    By nicedream
    You can’t create an account via the app because their form is broken. I ended up using Facebook to create an account but then the app fails to pair with the camera even though both app and camera were able to connect to the WiFi network. It was a terrible user experience just to get that far only to fail any way. Looking through the amazon reviews/questions of the camera, people have had the same problems months and months ago. When I contacted support they said they were having some network issues at the moment. Which makes it suspicious to have the same issues over and over again.
  • Worked perfectly until recently

    7 months I’ve had this camera and it’s been working great. Now it will not connect. I got it to connect after 20+ tried yesterday, but then today it disconnected again. I use this as a baby monitor and I now have nothing! I’m extremely frustrated.
  • Stopped working after a month

    By RaeRiot
    I have tried every troubleshooting recommendation in the book, but after a month of wonderful camera action-my app stopped working. It started w/not allowing me to open or view the camera or alerts by either not loading or telling me the password was in an invalid format. After resetting/uninstalling/reinstalling/firmware updates/etc: the app now will not pair with the camera at all even when the camera has successfully connected to the WiFi. I have reached out to support a few times but have yet to hear back. There were a few reviews regarding these camera “quitting” after a short period of time on Amazon. I guess I should have listened. When it was working, it was lovely and there were no complaints. :(
  • App needs serious updating and many repairs

    By move to another
    We have had to work with a professional installation team for two days to get our cameras set up and working. Hindreds of times we receive the invalid data format message, we have two of our six cameras still offline, tried to reset one not working and it still does not work, the customer support is slow or deficient at best. I would not recommend these cameras to any family who value safety and security
  • Keeps giving me error.

    By Bad Application so far
    First time using this product and every time around 4pm till midnight, I am not able to access the app. Every time I put my pin code it would say “invalid format, please try again later.” So far, I am considering returning it and purchasing a different camera that has a better app. I can only use the app in the morning till 3pm before it crashes again.
