I've just installed the xiaomi smart home, and this would be perfect!!
Nice find , If they send it. The last few deals from gearbest have ended in a refund due to problems with suppliers.

In the app you need to select china mainland then set language to English and it works fine.
I have one of these - not got round to using it!
Lovely stuff so that Chinese spies can watch you in your living room scratching your balls and watching TV.

​Can confirm that this works... kind of. The rtsp stream served by the hack doesn't appear to be "to spec" so didn't integrate with my cctv system... until I proxies it through an instance of VLC.

Still for 17 quid it was well worth the hassle and I'll probably get a couple more. I just wish it had an ethernet port really.
Nice, enough fps to pick up every spurt?
Anyone managed to get it working on iPhone? I've got ring doorbell and camera front and back, any point having this one inside the house?

​Get a canary for inside your home. Expensive but works really well.
This cam works brilliantly . Just need to figure out the setup
Will this work for example checking on a dog at home while at work thru your mobile connection or that asking a bit too much?
I ordered one which came last week. Out of the box it will not work with iPhone (even after setting the Mi Home app to China mainland) but works fine on android (provided you have android 5 or above). Haven't got the hack to work yet
Bottom line imho - avoid if using iOS, should be fine with android

Thanks for that, interested in this camera but fear I might brick it trying to use the hack.
Any advice?
Anyone know if the IR lighting can be disabled if viewing a street lamp lit scene through a window?
Has it got like a memory card slot to save footage.

Yes, that will work, at least for Android phones. I have two of these for monitoring my home while I'm out. They're extremely reliable and easy to use once you've got them set up.
Is this compatible with Smart Things?
Like the look of these for home security but is it just for remote monitoring or can you record? Is there an sd card slot? And it's the build any good (appreciate they are very cheap!)
Bit of a faff to setup using the hack but once up and running they are tidy little cameras. Very good quality (comparative to cameras 4x the price). Bare in mind you *will* need to buy a sdhc card so factor that in
Is it safe to assume if I ordered this right now it wouldn't get here before Saturday?

Unfortunately not.
Could this save the video to an external server ?
For example, if I'm away on holiday and I set this up with motion recording, will I be able up see the recorded footage whilst I'm away?

Not exactly the live footage as it's happening but the previously recorded footage.

Thanks in advance.
Is the clock still wrong on these?
Set mine up as Mainland China and it still tells me "cannot work outside china" when starting it up. Emailed gearbest 3 days ago and still had no reply.
thanks! I ordered. I may be back when they arrive if I get stuck setting up

Depends where you live.
I thought I'll spread the delivery /customs risk and order 2 cams in 2 separate orders. However the code works only once, when you try to order a second time, it actually bumps the price up to $30. Weird
ordered,
thanks

Not compatible as in officially 'works with smartthings' but with the hack mentioned and pstuart's generic video camera device type. Yes (apparently, I don't have one myself yet)

Max support 64G extended TF card ( not included )


Does it record onto that card?

We have a canary and are having nothing but bother with it. It just stares into its mirror all day unless you put some millet in.

I have ordered four and received all four if that helps.

Yes.
Works well and gives decent footage. Used the footage to get £350 claim from couriers who damaged my property just had to explain the time stamp was from cloud server in China. Upgrading to more permanent external cameras now but been very happy with the cheap smart cube (Although initial setup was a pain in the **** getting it to connect initially till I selected china as the location)

I like the two way sound feature for freaking the kids out that Santa is not happy with their behaviour.
Anyone tried to set this up on tinycam monitor on Android ? I assume the Xiaomi app is only necessary for the setup ?
Can this be configured as a 'standalone' ip camera i.e so I can use it with motion on linux?
