  • Easy to use

    By IRISHA1
    Great product at a great price. Easy to set up, easy to use, the motion sensors are really sensitive, and they have a micro SD storage option. The downside, at $27.00 a month for the, “yi cloud” required for 24/7 or long term video storage, its more than double the monthly cost of “Ring”, which is only $11.00. ($192.00 more annually) You can use microSD cards, but if someone steals the cameras, you lose your evidence... Hopefully Yi will do a market survey and see that they are WAY overpriced on their cloud storage fee. Other than that, again, it’s a great set up for the price.
  • Crash after crash

    New version keeps crashing I deleted and reinstalled the app, and it is still crashing!!!!!
  • Quality camera, but app can be trouble at times

    By bdk6767
    -Camera quality (both day and night vision) are good quality HD picture. I don’t recommend long viewing periods in HD format unless you have unlimited data because it can burn through data. -I don’t mount my cameras, just have one in each living room to watch over the dogs (and to find out which is in big trouble for the mischief). -Interaction between the camera and app can be glitchy at times, which includes disconnection problems, inability to connect to my WiFi for a day or two (yes, I tried all the troubleshooting options) and troubles with sharing the camera on my wife’s phone.
  • Just purchased

    By Gndalls
    Opened my account and never received email to active it....???? I know in the documentation states it may take 30 minutes but I have been waiting for hours on two separate instances.... If I don’t get an activation email by tomorrow morning I’ll be sending it back because it’s useless with out it.
  • Need some features

    By Lcgu
    There is no way to schedule the camera nor to mention on/off using geofence. The only support is with Amazon alexa which I need to do by voice every time, not so smart. Can you (Yi company) at least create a channel with IFTTT? Besides, the camera on/off button is reversed (green is off, pale is on) on iOS app which always confuses me.
  • Please fix!

    By fix it now purdy please
    After the last update the camera app is exceptionally slow, it defaults to the last login alert instead of the last video you select. It doesn’t load the live feed as fast as it used to. Ever since the update the app is crap.

    now is very slow loading or doesn’t work at all and there are ads ;(

    By KMA0121
    Bought the 4 pack for my very small apartment. Started with step by step of the instructions which are better then this app. Started placing with the hopes to have more eyes then really needed. The app never worked other then to charge me for the subscription. I gave it time because the delay was horrific. Blue lights are on but too many errors with the app. I’m so sorry I bought this because tomorrow my day will be wasted calling too many people and packing this return to Amazon. Hope China hasn’t already created a meme for my wide load!
  • 5 stars because!

    By Sammy Edward mitgang
    I’m giving this camera and app 5 stars because it’s honestly amazing for the price of the cameras i purchased. I got the Yi home set of 2 cameras for only $50 on amazon! Come on that’s insane! I’ve only had one of the two powered on and working for a couple hours now as a test. I was surprised to find that there is two way audio voice and sound. Now the only thing I kind of don’t like, is the speaker on the camera for the output Audio voice being that that volume is way too low but like I said I didn’t even expect to have this feature so I’m more than happy. So worth it!
