I am somewhat paranoid about all these cheap (and not so cheap) Chinese made internet connected gadgets. Whether or not you use their could services they’re still devices attached to your local network which could potentially be used maliciously. Even if you disable things like the cloud services they still ‘call home’.

I’ve done some traffic analysis and all the ip cameras I’ve tested are guilty of this.

One of them hits an AWS address which holds a list of China based IPs which the camera retrieves and attempts to communicate with.

My concern is that if these companies controlling these devices were so inclined each and every one could be used as an attack vector en masse.

Paranoid? Maybe, but it’s not worth the risk IMHO. If you’re going to use things like this, my advice is to block all outbound traffic for each device via a firewall, set up a VPN allowing you remote access to your LAN and communicate with them directly.

Remember, these devices hold info like your SSID and password, easily transmittable. They can also be used to probe for vulnerabilities on your connected devices and ‘sniff’ for sensitive info.

You can turn it off, connect using 2.4ghz, then turn 5GHZ back on. Takes 30 seconds to do

Just give your 2.4G and your 5G different names, then you can swap between them as and when you like
Love my Yi. That reminds me, must check what the wife’s been up to this morning....

Great price and great cameras. Would recommend.
Anyone using the custom software on the 720P cameras?
Why does the Night Vision picture show the room lights are on?
Good price
What is the quality like compared to blink xt2?

Why does the Night Vision picture show the room lights are on?


Night vision kicks in and out when it feels like it. For about two hours a night mine constantly switched. Plenty of times the room lights were on and yet the camera is in night mode. In the end I unplugged it. Far to sensitive given it shouldn't need to revert back after switching for 6 hours+.

Good cameras but I prefer the Yi dome
I just don’t get how people use these indoors without awful wires hanging everywhere. Like if you wanted them in the very top corner of the wall the only way is to feed a socket supply to under the floorboards to the room directly above
Do they work without the yi cloud? Not sure I wana be on China TV?

Wouldn't buy another mine failed a few days ago yellow light Stuck on and after reset won't show up in app so it's had it. I google it and it seems it's a common issue with these cameras.

Sorry, new to these type of devices. Does that mean you cannot view any of the stored SD card footage via Wifi and that it can only be viewed by physically removing the SD card from the device and watching it on a computer or mobile phone ?

I have seven of them of various kinds and yes i did get a couple of failures but they were swapped out with no hassle. Out of the ones i tried early days these are easiest to setup and use

No you can view the sd card via wifi, all recording are shown on the app and you just select which time. You can use a 32gb sd card which if not a busy are will give you 5-7 days events

These aren't bad to start up with. I had one of these and put it on the window to face the garden and it gave good quality recordings.
I'm not sure the app notifications are entirely great though. I've got some of the YI outdoor ones which I haven't yet installed...
This one was working fine (not sure if its the exact same model) but ended up bricking it while trying to flash different firmware on, probably because it was the wrong file

The camera can pop out of the white holding frame so if you wanted you could mount it somewhere discreetly too. Someone also shared this for mounting it
What is the hack to take it off their server? Would the app still work?

No pages specifically. Just trial and error and tapping up folks on Facebook Homebridge pages. You have to pay the developer to be able to use the RTSP element of the hack. That element is needed for the live stream. A fiver payment was good for 3-4 cameras but I heard a rumour that it is now that per camera. A lot of work has gone in to it so I wouldn’t necessarily begrudge that. Happy to offer some guidance as and when needed. Drop me a PM on here when you get going with it. Are you running Homebridge?

Yes. Yi Hack V4 allows you to stream directly to an NVR and turn off cloud access. Used to charge for this in the past but now free to use. Have it running on 4 of these myself and works a treat.

Found it on this Yi webpage (link below) for their Dome Camera X. They use the same cloud servers for all their home cameras.
