Xiaomi Zigbee-triggered 1080p ip camera, promo price again, from Gearbest - £22.57

Found 11th Dec 2017Edited by:"mcek"
10thJan: Back on promo again for a 6 days
Free priority shipping (took 5 days on my last order).

So, this indoor ip camera is also an Xiaomi gateway itself, link with Xiaomi sensor triggers, door/window/PIR.
No need for a CN plug adaptor if you have a spare phone charger.
When triggered it will record a 12 second video, store online, send a notification to your phone.
No developer mode as yet, so needs to contact the China server.

Better info on the Banggood pages:
banggood.com/Ori…=CN
, we see this is a gateway itself, and a zigbee network extender, both of which are simply a bonus.

This looks great - as you say, the missing component from.most cameras
Shame the Xiaomi cameras dont support ONVIF.... great price.
How likely is this to work with Zoneminder?
I need to get one of these... my one year old keeps coming home from school to an empty house.

Totally wrong you should be there, nice to see your getting them schooling early though.
I thought this camera can act as a gateway on its own?
Do you know for sure that it can only connect to multifunctional gateway and not act as a gateway on its own??

No, this one is an add-on zigbee device. Are you thinking of the expensive Piper NV cameras, 2 versions, one version is a hub itself, both have a PIR and siren (I think) ?

I still think this product is also a gateway by itself. Please look at Q&A for this product at Bangood. It clearly says that this camera can connect to Aqara door sensors and motion sensor directly without the need for the multifunctional gateway. This camera has both Wifi and Zigbee. It doesnt seem to have motion sensing capability though.

Actually, maybe everyday is a school day. I've re-read the Gearbest description, and 'with gateway functionality' might mean it is a gateway itself.
When I read 'The Aqara can make the signal of the smart home system has a wider coverage and is more stable.', I understood that it had a gateway extender function.
I have a gateway anyway, so I could be slightly blind to the notion it is an autonomous gateway.
Time to do a bit more reading, but I think it will link to an existing gateway anyway, if it extends the coverage that's a bonus.

@rdrp well spotted.


ok, this is better than I thought.
The Gearbest pages have omitted some very useful information. Please read over the Banggood pages.

Yes. It will definitely act as a Zigbee repeater as well.

Are you looking to use the zigbee functionality of this camera with smart things? Because i think already you can get any Xiaomi IP camera (with wi fi) controlled by xiaomi multifunctional gateway.

I don't have any Xiaomi ip camera at the moment, because of the negative posts about firmware etc.
And I mentioned ST because a lot of people here have seen the benefit of Xiaomi sensors and ST.
This would be a nice camera triggered by a Zigbee sensor, so good for ST and an Xiaomi gateway.
But now we see that it is also autonomous.

I have a gateway linked to Home Assistant, and at the moment I don't know if this camera gateway has a local-network mode to use in HASS, but I can still use it as a network extender to the local-network gateway. Trying to avoid cloud only control and I don't know how much ST has improved in local processing.

I agree. I am under the impression that this gateway camera supports local mode (just as multifunctional gateway), I have ordered one today. Lets wait & see :-)
Mcek, you always find the best gearbest bargains on home automation.
Almost regret buying the gateway now, haha

No way... this is the perfect camera for the gateway, the fact that you can extend the Xiaomi Zigbee signals as well is a bonus. Not many of us will have the Xiaomi air conditioning, so this is the only other powered Zigbee device we could get to act as an extender at the moment.

The answer to that is yes.
I don't really understand anything most of you are saying about ZigBee, onvif, multifunctional gateways etc etc.

There is a Xiaomi wall socket which has WiFi as well as zigbee. I think this socket can also act as zigbee extender.

Yes, the powered devices such as wall plugs and sockets, and the air conditioning companion (plug and sensor) are extenders but not suitable in the UK unless you have some China/Aussie plug and also use adaptors. I don't think the extension plug strip or the wired zigbee wall switches are extenders though.
Anyone know if this can do motion detect alarm (like the dafang ip camera) but have it switched on or off by the zigbee?

E.g. I want to send a signal when my front door is opened which will turn on motion detect (not turn on recording)

I don't see anything about motion detection with this camera (they usually talk about that feature in detail), the main selling point is it will record 12 second chunks of video when triggered by a sensor, and store them for 3 months.
Best wait till the PIR is on promo again (£6+) for motion detect.

I actually have 2 of the PIR sitting on my desk..guess I could just combine...
Can you use an app to view the feed at all or is it just record blind?

They seem to say that you use an app to view anytime, and the video window can stay open when you use another app.
I assume this will use the MiHome app, as it's also a gateway, but I have no clue which server is offered.
Maybe they have another dedicated app.
So, if there isn't a lag, your sensor could trigger the camera and notify you in about the same time as the 12 second auto record has finished, but enough for you to continue live feed viewing I suppose.
The site doesn't mention recording, but the photo of the mobile screen seems to show a live feed with a timeline, and a snapshot and a manual record button.
Wow some serious smart home people in here!

Hope someone can help... I've got a Ring Floodlight Cam for the front of our house, but looking to get Xiaomi'd up everywhere else (3 indoor cams like this and 2 outdoor cams). Are there any Xiaomi outdoor cameras? I can't seem to find anything.

And, would one app be able to access all the Xiaomi cameras? Is there a limit to how many cams it can do?

Yes I thought that, I took a gamble as the chinglish was vague about the gateway capabilities, but it works great. The camera btw is brilliant, true 180 degree lens, 3 infrared lights for night vision seem enough to cover medium room. Motion detection recording supported. 2 firmware updates in the last 2 weeks (first one was probably overdue). Android app is better translated than iOS for the camera section. Audio messages from camera speaker when adding zigbee devices etc still Chinese only. Hope they add local network mode soon.

Sounds great. I grabbed one before the price changed, wanted to avoid all the christmas post. will see how it does along with my original gateway in terms of extending the zigbee mesh. maybe my HASS will see it, otherwise will wait till they enable developer mode. hopefully save me the £40 on a usb zigbee stick. if all well, will wait till the next promo.

Yes basically you got gateway v2 was the one you know with speaker, radio and light
gateway v3 is the plug with air con control capabilities
gateway v4 is this one with an ip camera instead of radio or air con control. Another plus is that this one powers by micro usb so no need for Hong Kong power adapters etc
