Looking for specific info?

Can i watch old recorded footage stored on the microsd card without taking the card out? Does the footage stored on the microsd have a length limit?


you can view the stored footage on the sd card using the app as long as it’s still available. However, if you are looking for specific footage, you will have to scroll through the timeline. When the memory card is full, the oldest video will be replaced and the recording continues as expected.

Thank you!

Does it use sd card?

Yes, it has an sd card but yi/kami has been slowly phasing out the sd card features. You can no longer record a video from the sd card playback for one thing. This was a feature we used when we were on vacation and our tv came on (smartv isn’t so smart when it has an update and turns itself on). We were able to make a short recording directly from our sd card that we sent via text to our local police department. They came and checked it out for us. Now, you can’t do that. The outdoor cameras are the same. Yi/kami sd card option is just a ‘bait’ to get you to buy their cameras but then, you have very little access to it and they are not putting everything behind a paid cloud plan. They basically own your content, not you.

Will this work with a 5g android phone ? Thank you.

Yep. I have a galaxy s20 fe 5g and use it with the yi app.

May i know the file format can be read by computer or not? My current camera(not yi brand) does not allow me to view videos on my computer.

The file format of the video varies depending on the brand of the camera. And for yi cameras, we have .mp4 format. In your case, if you’re not using a yi camera, i suggest contacting the camera manufacturer to confirm the file format.

Was given as wedding gift, can it be returned ?

I’m sure.

Can you watch this as a live cam? How long does it let you do that before it cuts off or asks you if you want longer time?

I can use it continuously. It used to ask me if i was still watching, but it quit doing that. I did buy the cloud function. Don’t know if that is what changed the situation but it did. Maybe that’s what you have to do.

Do i need to purchase anything additional with this other than an ethernet cable?

According to the instruction manual ethernet pairing steps:

‘in order to use the ethernet connection, you must first pair the camera to a wi-fi connection and then camera switch to wired connection automation.’

‘please connect the ethernet cable to the camera before pairing.’

it appears that a wi-fi connection is needed initially. There is no mention of other devices needed besides the ethernet cable.

Does the bark detection still work if i have music playing in the room where i’m recording?

The yi dome guard camera has the capability to detect sound detections as long as the microphone is enabled.

I have been having issues naming it any suggestions to finish the install

You can name it anything you want

Does it record if there is no motion or will it only record if there is motion or sound?

Only records with motion you can manually record if you want. One of the available icons is video recording, also snapshot.

Can it be operated by two mobile devices at a time ?

Yes, as long as the camera is paired to the same account, customers can use the camera using multiple devices.

Is this camera icsee compatible?

No you have to use the app that it recommends

How does one convert chinese version of this to international? Bought from taobao not knowing it was region locked.

Hope this helps. A little shaky cause i’m not very steady’

Why my camera stop working when i put micro sd card? It just making a motor sound and no movement.

Go in to settings & turn on camera

Can i just use the sd card instead of icloud?

Yes i do. I have 3 cameras no cloud service. Works great. Gives you long playback if you want it.

Older yi cameras worke great. This one fails to connect most of the time. Is older version still available to buy?

most older versions of the cameras have already reached their eol (end of life). Meaning they’re no longer supported. Some of them might still be available from other 3rd party resellers but we cannot guarantee if they will work with the mobile app since they’re outdated.

Thank you!

Does it come with an sd card?

No video card is included

Como hago para configurar si coloco en la aplicacion varios correos y no me.llega el mensaje de confirmacion?

No es posible, lo único que puedes hacer es instalar 2 apps: la app yi home y la app kami home y así puedes tener máximo 2 cuentas de cámaras en un mismo celular al tiempo

Can you manually move the camera in app?

You can conpletely control the camera through the yi app, angle, zoom in or zoom out, rotation and the best is that could be manual or automatic, because the camera has the motion detection and the sound detection, so when the camera detect motion or sound will rotate or capture the moment.

Just to clarify, do the cameras use sd or micro sd cards? Description says sd, but pics seem to show a micro sd sized slot?

The latest model (the one linked to your question) does not have an sd port. I also have some earlier yi dome cameras that do have a micro sd.

Perfect for the price!

This camera is great! I’m able to check in at anytime to see what my cats are doing! I’m able to talk to them and can also hear them! The night vision works great! There is a spot for a micro sd card but i decided to spend the $5 for the kami cloud! It’s cheap and there are multiple package deals and options for monthly or yearly!

Might buy 1 more

It works great! Easy setup following the instructions. A great view of the whole room and if you set it up motion sensor it follows every move. The sound is quiet but it works. We might have to play with it more to know if it has volume settings. The video picture of it can get pixelated but it clears up so it’s not a big deal. I like how it turns to the ceiling to know that it’s off.

Can't believe i paid $30!

This was super easy to set up, the cost was low, the quality for the money is on point! I’m looking into getting some for my house. I bought this for my office. The night vision is awesome, i can talk through my phone to anyone i see in my office, i can see the wallart that’s on the wall when the light is off! It’s just fantastic, i highly recommend!

This product is just the very best!

I wanted to purchase a camera and system in order to remotely view my car parked in front of my offices. Remote viewing was essential and ability to record and motion detection were pluses. I had contacted a cctv company with strong internet presence and received an estimate of approximately $1,000 with five (5) hours of installation time. No thank you. My computer programmer suggested the yi with a card, since his company was using it satisfactorily. I purchased the camera and card from amazon and same arrived promptly. It took me all of about five (5) minutes to successfully install it and another ten (10) minutes for a learning curve. The total cost was under $50. It operates flawlessly with my ipad and iphone and i can even adjust it remotely. It has motion detection with immediate notice to me, ability to record and view remotely, and spectacular night vision. I know that it has other features that i do not even need. This product is so good that it actually is scary. It is absolutely the best!

Better than i expected

I’ve had 3 yi cameras for about 3 years and i find their products to be excellent. When i received the dom guard camera, i had it working in less than 5 minutes. Like all yi cameras it works perfectly and crystal clear pictures. I highly recommend yi

Good for general pet use

I live alone and got this to keep an eye on my cat while i was gone for a week and to make sure the pet sitter was coming. Like others have said, the night vision is great, and being able to hear sounds live from the camera is nice. It does constantly pop up to pay for their cloud, though, which is 100 dollars for a year. I certainly don’t have that kind of money and wish i could turn the pop-up every time i open the camera feed off. That being said, the live camera feed is definitely good enough for what i bought the camera to do! It does catch some activity, but it seems pretty inconsistent, and also cannot differentiate between my cat and a person. It will send me ‘person detected’ when my cat walks by in the middle of the night, which is either quite a fright when i’m not home, or maybe would cause me to disregard the message if a burglar actually did come in. Also, i think it will only record activity in 5 minute intervals or so. It will take a screenshot when it detects the activity, but without the subscription, you can only see a tiny thumbnail of the picture. Which, again, is enough to be able to tell my pet sitter came, or perhaps see my cat’s tail somewhere in the frame, but no more than that.

All in all, it’s a great little camera that certainly will do what it needs you to do, but the more convenient options are locked behind a paywall that may not be affordable to some like myself.

Inversion comes at a cost..

This little camera does pretty well, but if you want to mount it sideways, or upside down and wish to use any type of inversion, look very hard, i finally figured it out, but it still didn’t help with sideways mounting, only upside down and rightsize up. The package this comes in isn’t bad tho, and it does the job, for a fee, but the fee isn’t too bad, so you might want to give em a try, they’re cheaper than the name brands, and work just as good!

So far so good

I have purchased the camera for kitten purposes and it did it’s job. The only thing i hate is when it goes offline and you have to manually reset it which is super easy but sucks if you’re not home.

I did not use it with any memory card, i only used it live.

Good for the price

This camera is good for what you pay for. I mainly use it as a baby monitor in the play room, and it does the job. Picture quality is good however the app can take a minute or two to load which can be annoying. And the camera doesn’t tilt down because of the design

Good, but needs better support

Great camera. Easy install. I thought it would be an easy setup, but there were few instructions given. The cameras randomly turned on; which felt a lot like being spied upon. Online support was of no help. So i played around with the settings until i found the schedule option. It remains to be seen if the camera will follow and maintain the schedule. I can’t get it to stop alerts when home yet. So that’s why it gets 4, maybe 3, stars.

Works great but motion tracking is slow and inaccurate

Works great with the yi home software has a really good picture… But the tracking is slow and people can walk by the camera and it doesn’t move to track them easily, quickly, if at all… Also after owning it for a few weeks, the motor is starting to make weird noises, like it needs oil (a faint screech) and it’s only gotten louder…

App forced you to try cloud every time

The camera itself is good as expected, the app is not. I use the sd card and every time i want to look back to the recordings it forced me to ‘try’ its cloud function! Even if i have refused tens of times! That’s really alloying!!!

Great for the price

I love the camera.. However, i would like to turn off the constant rotation so i could get a stationary view…. I get an alert and the only thing i see is the cabinet or the ceiling… Not too helpful… Also, i wasn’t aware i would have to subscribe for a fee to actually see the video…i does what it’s supposed to as far as letting me know there is movement in the house and overall the live camera footage is clear…. Considering buying a cheaper one that is stationary to add to or replace this camera.
