  • Best option for the price

    Couldn’t be happier with all features and how easy it was to set up and use. Especially for the price
  • App used to be good but not now

    By Sunnzray
    UPDATE...I have never been so frustrated with an app before. I have continued to email and it never gets fixed. When trying to watch something recorded or live it continues to jump to another camera if motion is sensed. FIX THIS!!!!!!!! I used to never have problems with this app but now after the last two updates when watching a live feed or a playback on my app, if any one of my cameras picks up motion it closes out that video flips over to the camera motion was picked up and this happens continuously. Please fix! I have sent many emails and even a video example of this happening but it did not get fixed in the last update.

    It was simple to set up and so far has been a great product to purchase. 👍🏽
  • Failure

    By dont care aa
    Whenever I travel for work the cameras fail to produce on time video. Almost as soon as I leave they fail to produce anything. You can’t restart them remotely. They become unuseable. What is their purpose? Why buy Yi cameras if they don’t work when away from home. I can use the app to connect and see that the camera is connectable and ping able but still does not produce video.
  • Update forces clips to interrupt camera

    By Zoftware
    Latest Yi Cam software update causes a huge glitch. When watching a live camera feed any new motion detection clip will immediately interrupt the current stream and cut to motion clip regardless if you want to watch it or not. There seems to be no option to turn this new ‘feature’ off. This completely ruins the experience of watching the live camera and makes the entire system unusable. This exact issue has also happened on a colleagues system as well as mine and appears, from reviews, to be happening to multiple users. Yi has not fixed this yet and it appears they are asking customers to file a report with Yi instead of taking action and fixing their faulty software.
  • Still no iPad app

    Still no iPad app!!!!
  • Latest Updates Causing “Jumping” to Motion Alerts

    By Pjvander
    The last two or so updates have made this app unusable! As others have mentioned, if this is a new “feature”, please remove it! Or, give the option to disable. When viewing playback on one camera, the app will automatically “jump” to a different camera that may have received a motion alert. Incredibly frustrating with 5 cameras!!! PLEASE FIX THIS AND REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS METHOD OF OPERATION!!!!
  • Random Jumping to Feeds

    By KingNO
    What gives? The last release now has a weird glitch where when I’m using the app, if any camera detects motion, it immediately switches to that recorded motion clip without any intervention on my end. It’s frustrating to say the least and has made the app substantially less user friendly. Please change it back to not switch to any motion feed as they come in. Or at least allow us to toggle off that “feature”.
  • Awesome!

    These cameras are amazing, especially for the price. The picture comes in super clear, and the night vision works well. You can turn them off and on from the app, and take videos or screen shots from your phone as well. I can yell at my dogs from work. 😆 You don’t have to use an SD card unless you want to record video.
