How secure is it? Care to share any links for enabling RTSP?

Does it really matter if you're just watching the dog or feeders on the bird table rather than the guest bedroom?
We have our wifi camera pointed at the bird table and the nut feeder in the background.
But as hubby says, who'd want to look at my tits. (Cat food for his tea again tonight!)

I have 3 of them and they do the job perfectly - but thanks for the in depth critique.

It can be used with the hacks

To get it running on Tinycam on your 3g/4g network (with the hacks installed) install this:

Will only work if your phone is rooted

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.sshtunnel&hl=en_GB

Just enable port forwarding on your router to a random port say 890

Then in Tinycam enter advanced settings and input your details (make sure you use RTSP over TCP not UDP)

Can post screenshots with my settings if anyone needs them

This camera is the dogs for the price

Can anyone advise what the fps rate is at 1080p?
It's around 10fps at 1080p, maybe less. Good enough, and it produces really small .mp4 files so I can get 10 days+ continuous recording on my 32gig SD card.

I'm not entirely convinced that it's 1080p by the way, as it looks like they're just upscaling in software from 720p (it's the same hardware as the ISmartAlarm Spot)

I'm using the Xiaomi Mi Home software on Android (I have a Xiaomi phone so I'm already used to their ecosystem) - this used to run great, but a recent plugin update has broken it and you can no longer use the 'Gallery' section to review each day's videos - it just times out forever on that screen. Annoying. It's also renamed some of the options back to Chinese when they used to be in English.

Still pretty good for £20 though

Yea annoying its borked it, how can it go from working great with nearly 100% english to back to half chinese and broken gallery?. Ive been doing my head in the last hour reseting the camera and reinstalling the app and wish I knew they borked the app. Terrible software I may look into hacking it, dont trust the app with all them permisions.
Looks like gallery has been fixed by the recent firmware update!, few changes I see.

You're probably right, but wouldn't mind something that's significantly better for a higher price.
I bought this one, but I can't make it work.
I got the same from a previous deal and it's working fine.
Any ideas?
If you use mi home 10.0.11 and disable plugins it works although mine did for a while but now cant connect camera using setup anymore so nees to fix it somehow.
This issue has now been fixed on the latest mi home software and camera firmware, so no need for work arounds anymore!. Camera now works fine in the UK.

Does the ir night vision work aimed at a window looking outside right up close to the glass window? I've just sent back a WiFi ir cam as it was reflecting ir light in glass so couldn't see outside!

No it won't, all cameras with ir will do the same, you will need a external light source and turn ir off.
