Status update - I've found out how to get telnet access and change the root password without having to solder leads to the camera's motherboard, but it only seems to work on the original camera firmware (i.e. it won't work if you've updated to the latest firmware). To work out why, I'm going to need to solder leads onto my second camera (which has the newer firmware) - I may find time to do that tomorrow.

On the original firmware, when a microSD card is inserted the camera will look for a file called "snx_autorun.sh" in the root of the microSD card and run it if found.

So if you create a file called "snx_autorun.sh" in the root directory of your microSD card containing the following bash script, and insert it into the camera, the script will change the root password to "toor" (or whatever alternative you choose by editing the below) and start a telnet server:

#!/bin/sh
# Set root password
ROOT_PASS=toor
###
# Change root pasword
echo "Changing root password" > /dev/console
echo -e "${ROOT_PASS}\n${ROOT_PASS}\n" | passwd
# Launch telnetd
echo "Start telnet server..." > /dev/console
telnetd &

You'll then be able to connect to the camera over telnet using Putty with username "root" and password "toor" (unless you changed it in the above script). You can find the camera's IP in the Mi Home app.

Next step is to try to get some useful services running. It already has a simple web server running (albeit with no pages to serve), but I'm keen to get an rtsp stream out of the thing if possible.

Let me know if the above works for you and you can telnet into your camera.

I think you scrolled down too fast and skipped the English bit!

Great little cameras. I bought 2 just before Christmas, as said above the app is in Chinese but I think they are working on an English version.

Cheers - ordered. Already got a hikvision nvr and camera setup but can't for the life of me get the audio to work so this'll be a backup.

Ordered 3 a few weeks back still waiting for them to arrive, they look great

I have this camera from light in the box website. Only problem is that all the instructions are in Chinese. Even if you choose the option of English in software. They will not show in english so unfortunately there is no way to show the software in english.

Anyone know if this will work with homeassistant?

Can it be accessed without the app? Anyone tried ssh or telnet?

Are these rebranded iSmartAlarm Spot cameras? They look exactly the same apart from being 720p. The xiaomi is probably 720p upscaled.

they look the same.. but the kick-starter are more expensive. I'd expect since design in 2014 it's been licenced and upgraded to 1080p

Tried it and it shows $25.99 at the checkout $22.09 after the discount code. PayPal converts this into GBP and shows £18.49. Not sure if you actually ordered one yourself!

Shows £16.89 for me, try setting your currency option.

At the moment these don't work with blue iris or tinycam, but I'm hopeful a firmware update may change things.

Looks like final charge is in $. Site states that prices shown in £ are for reference only.

I would not recommend these cameras. Half the app is in Chinese and my Torguard 720p cam actually has better picture. Got two of them, one still sealed, will be going on ebay.

Perhaps its worth trying the Google Translate app on another phone through the camera where it does on the fly translation.

Friends don't let friends buy cheapy Chinese IP cameras. They almost never get updates and that means they almost always get hacked.

If you actually understand that and can reliably firewall them off from the internet, and monitor access, go ahead... But these just aren't safe for consumers.

how many hours/days would a 10000mah battery last powering this?

Would this work as a dashcam?

I was just about to purchase a Sricam SP012 from GearBest, can anyone tell me which is better this or the Sricam please? As far as I can tell the Xiaomi has better specs but the Sricam can be used with TinyCam where as the Xiaomi can't?

In an 100% efficient system: 16.7h, in a real system 2/3 of that roughly.

You raise a legitimate issue.

However, aren't most of the problems associated with Wifi Cameras the fact that people don't secure it properly when setting it up and don't change the default passwords etc?
