Oooh from xiaomi.... Tempting
Not bad, heat given.
Link does not work for me. Searching on gearbest site doesn't find it.
This is`nt one of those where you need an Amazon cloud account is it?
Anyone know if this can be hacked to allow rtsp streaming?
Does anyone know is the video stream directly from your home to the viewer or to the China servers and viewer is connecting to the China servers? Some Xiaomi web cameras work in the latter which will be painfully slow due to network latency.

If your happy with saving to memory card & don't update the firmware I suppose. It's a real shame since Xiaomi is quality stuff but justifying blocks to continue making more new models. Typical product lifespan seems very short. Disposable cams to a point & creating more waste.

I'm always suspicious of firmware upgrades where the manufacturer deliberately introduce flaws or dumb down a product.

HP do it & I'm sure Apple do it as well with their macbooks eg after 4 years when a product is nearing it's "lifespan" they send an update for the graphics to use more power & run hotter making it fail within a year or so depending on usage.
It's still blocked in U.K.?why buying?

That's Apple but you're paying a premium on their products but they stick to high quality stuff that you know will always work with their after support 3/5 years+. I can see that Xiaomi will just carry on churning out IP cameras with more or less the specs but with short product lifespan support. What will they learn from this? Sure they will carry on making money but at what expense, losing customers faith to upgrade. Surely it's about time they need to consider having servers overseas by now to support a growing trend for their brand. Do they not won't grow their business?

Your old phone is wrecking the planet

Link added: OK, it's not a mobile phone but still considered as a electronic device.

Considering getting one. I don't know why though. HUKD strikes again.

No Nvidia GPU's fail in Apple Macbooks of that age, blame Nvidia. IOS9 did kill off the iPad 2, it should never have got that update, as the tablet is stupidly slow and laggy.
Is there a way to record/stream footage online either to a free or cheap service provider? Can it be set to start recording when it detects motion? Im looking for a cheap security camera for when im at work.
Anyone comment on the blocked in UK comments? Just got an amazing deal on a Xiaomi phone. Probably one of the best buys iv made. Phone works flawlessly for the money. Dual SIM and now seem to get 4g In remote areas on Vodafone which I didn't get on an older samsung. Really impressed with the brand as there is a dedicated forum and help for UK users so I'm definitely interested in getting one of these if they work over here

i think they're referring to the Xiaomi Xiaofang Camera. It doesn't work in Europe and america regions anymore since they updated the firmware but this one should work and has been verified by customer chat at Gearbest to work in Europe.

Also the Xiaomi Dafang 1080p Camera is only £20.07 at the moment and is not only better quality but also pans and tilts over the app.
Might be a silly question. Anyway i can link this to my current HIKvision NVR?

I doubt it it's linked to the Xiaomi app
Has anyone who's received theirs yet got it working? Everything is in Chinese - the manual, the voice prompts, everything. I haven't the faintest idea how to set it up!

Good luck! After trawling the net I've gleaned that you need to set the location of the Mi Home app to mainland China (not US or elsewhere) to get it to pair with the app. Fiddling with a pin in the reset hole seems to have got it working. The Chinese voice prompts are quite unnerving!

BTW cheers for posting!

Got the mi home router the app is fine for the price can't moan you need to remember the app is designed for the Asian market but similar products are £99 on offer in screwfix this week ( use an app to translate the instructions to eng if you need)

Btf my phone is Xiaomi (mi note 2) and I have the robot vacuum and the smart gateway with different bits so I'm quite deep into the ecosystem
Anyone updated their firmware on this since delivery? Any issues?
