Wireless data. Not sure we've worked out wireless power yet.
I can vouch for this. Fantastic image quality and ease of use - beating many more expensive cameras. Yes, your data is sent away to Xiaomi in China (any cloud camera will send your data offsite) and yes, there are some notification issues with Android (iOS seems fine). Really happy with ours and have 15 across multiple sites now. Wish the mobile apps did multi-view as the Windows version can view 4 or 9 streams at once.

So no more "wireless" than literally every other camera then...

We have figured out wireless power, it's called a battery. The Blink XT camera that went very hot here last week for example is actually wireless.

Can't you use a 3rd party app/viewer? And use their 3rd party storage?


I'd recommend anyone getting these to stick Yi Hack v4 on it.

github.com/The…-v4

It adds a bunch of cool features like

  • WebServer - user-friendly stats and configurations.
  • SSH server - Enabled by default.
  • Telnet server - Disabled by default.
  • FTP server - Enabled by default.
  • Web server - Enabled by default.

RTSP can be enabled with a €5 donation to the developer, allowing it to work with things like

  • Home Assistant
  • Shinobi
  • Zoneminder
  • Synology Surveillance Station

github.com/The…ver

Obviously no need to donate if you have no intention of using RTSP but it's worth it for those that would use it.

I run Yi Hack V4 on my 1080P Dome Camera which i use as an outdoor camera.

Thanks op! Just ordered, can’t imagine this will be available at that price for long... I’ve been waiting for a while to get this on a deal. Thanks again and good spot 🏽

Thats the power lead.
Anyone know how long the power lead is?
What size hole is needed for the wire?

I too would like to know as it would be mounted some distance from socket I.e roof.
RyanC17/07/2019 08:32

To drill them through a wall cavity I used a 16mm drill bit and then went through with an 18mm. It has to fit the power lead which is USB
GapsOfTheGod17/07/2019 08:31

Anyone know how long the power lead is?


Around 4m if I recall correctly. Enough to put through the wall and then run to the closest power socket (USB adaptor is included in the kit)
Is there a way to power these without USB? I have a standard outdoor junction box powering my floodlights etc (mains power) right next to where i would want the camera - is there any way to tap into this? Or are there other wifi cameras that this would lend itself to using? thank you

I would have bought this at this price if I hadn't been having so many problems with the notifications on the other two yi cameras I have. They were fine when I first bought them but now I only get notifications on my android phone when I start the app.
How much does it cost to run the camera storage.

Yep no more wireless than any similar camera! Hmmm well not technically wireless power as it is physically connected, also I'm not familiar with Blink XTs but I would feel more secure having the camera on mains power - but get that for convenience the Blink has a lot of purpose.
Ordered four but had to use separate accounts for each as discount can only be applied to one camera.
I’ll give them a go and return them if they’re no good. Got to be worth a punt.

Change notification settings on your phone, probably you've blocked it
If yi did cameras with a solar power attachment, I'd be all over it. Would be truly wireless.

About the size of a USB port. You’d think they’d have an in-line barrel connector but no...

If you’re serious about it (and this is a serious solution) think about getting a cheap iPhone SE from Music Magpie as iOS works fine.

It doesn’t need Ethernet, hence wireless... The Blink XT is alright but has tons of deficiencies - the camera isn’t always on so you rely on a PIR for detection (which is inaccurate), the camera takes 5-10 seconds to start once the PIR senses so you often miss stuff, no live view, battery meant to last 2 years but lasts a few months depending on where you position it, as it has to run at low power you get a lot of signal interference and image quality is poor as the IR LEDs are lower power.

If you asked me to choose between the Blink XT and a bit of faff one-off mounting a Yi camera but also saving the cost and no annoying sync box (which has tons of wires as it’s ethernet), I’ll choose the Yi camera. The Yi at RRP is still good value, at £45 it’s a no-brainer.

Has anyone got any images of what this camera can do, I had a look at amazon.com reviews and the images there weren't too impressive.

i had exactly the same issue, i had to delete the app and re add all the cameras from new, got about 6 of them so wasnt too bad .

It's not wireless if theres a wire... the clues are all there.

I'm not comparing Blink to Yi or recommending either way. But, when told wireless doesn't exist, I gave a recent example. It does. This shouldn't be marketed as wireless when you need to drill a hole through your wall for the wire, end of.

Ok. Maybe we should stop selling mains-power WiFi-enabled printers as wireless too then as they need power... battery-powered printers exist. Obviously it’s not for you.

They seem to consume quite a lot of power comparatively (if you ever ran one off a power bank you’ll know what I mean) so you’d need a beastly solar panel - expensive and cumbersome to run.

There is an issue with background notifications on Android. It’s not anything he has done. I have both and only get notifications on iOS properly.

Same issue with me they were fine until they pushed an update at the start of the year.

Read the reviews on the play store alot of people complaining about notifications.

Take a look at the Netatmo Presence .. uses mains power and can replace a current outdoor lamp or security light

There are some on the market already. Should have bought on prime
Good camera for the price. However a bit temperamental like others have said. App notifications are a hit and miss, stops detecting the SD card sometimes which means no recording if it decided to do it when most needed. That said these are good cameras. I have 6 of the Yi ones in the house including internal, PTZ ones etc.
I’ve got 2 of these.

- live streams timeout every 30 minutes (desktop), logged a support ticket to change this no change yet.

- live stream bitrate drops to 0 regularly causing stutter, needs resetting (on the camera itself) to clear but comes back after a few days.
This is not wireless. If you want wireless, try Arlo, Blink, Reolink (best IMO), D-link, Eufy. All these are proper wireless.
Excellent camera's for this price, we have 4 installed and running 24/7 with motion detection alerts, and it works flawlessly. The set-up and installation is also a doddle, just make sure you have a good wifi signal getting to each camera - I recommend a decent mesh wifi set-up if you have a large property.
I'm really tempted by this...
How do you guys manage to get the usb power out to the camera? I'm still struggling to figure out a way without messing up the rooms and the walls
github.com/YIT…API
For those that want to edit the software installed, from my memory it stops recordings going to China and allows for a longer recording

Holy carp - they’re £230!

I could buy a (pretty) floor light, PIR sensor and a decent camera for far cheaper!

The mark ups on some of this smart stuff is beyond me.

Do you have an iCloud subscription for recordings? If so which package do you recommend please?
