I agree, there is also the fact that my data in the cloud is maintained by a Chinese company. My preference is definitely my Synology server at home which then backs up in a cloud of my choice.
This is why I now avoid most Chinese brands as most have moved to cloud based setup with the only way of being able to access the camera through a specific app. Their was a time when most cameras came at least with RTSP and often ONVIF protocol built in. Currently use Foscam ip cameras as they continue to come with ONVIF support.
ONVIF is not supported what narrows down the way some people would like to use it. I have the YI Dome wich is good quality but does not support ONVIF so wouldn’t buy again to be honest.
Come on guys let's get this deal to 1000° (cheeky)
I have the previous model to this and like the guy above says would prefer onvif support, problem with this cam is you are locked into the proprietary app, which in my experience drops from network, I am about to replace my yi with a reolink cam for a few extra quid, voted hot for the price if your using it for occasional dog or baby monitor
