Is YI (Why Aye) a Geordie company?

Is this made by Xiaomi?
Really good price if it is - heat from me.

Ordered one of these last month and it's worked pretty well so far

Like the description says, this doesn't include a suction mount but I highly recommend getting one from eBay for £1 or so as removing the camera from the mount isn't the easiest of jobs (for me).

Bought one of these last month, happy with it so far. WiFi access is so much easier than having to unmount the camera, take the memory card out, shove it in the pc etc....

Is there any security around the the wifi access? What's to stop anyone with the app accessing it whilst the engine is running and seeing the footage of where you've been? (apologies in advance if that sounds a bit paranoid lol)

Does the screen automatically turn off? I was thinking of a rear mouted cam

I've had a little play about with the Wi-Fi and my understanding is that it needs to be near the camera to connect to it.

Yes, I believe there's a setting where you can change the length of time it stays on for (I want to say 1, 3, 5 and 10 minutes). I think you can also leave the screen on if needed for any reason. I'll be able to check later on today when I'm home if no one else corrects me

How many GB do the files get for a full loop?

Not totally sure what you mean sorry. If it helps, my files are usually around 3 mins long (may be able to change this) and I have a 32GB SanDisk High Endurance card.

jeds13 m ago

If it is like my current dashcam then it usually records in 100MB, 1 minute chunks, fills the card and starts again.

My current SD Card is a 32GB class 4 so I get around 5 hours (iirc) worth then it starts over.

WiFi is password protected, but if anyone wants to hack it I presume they could, as with anything these days. You can set your own complex password to mitigate.

I've used a 3M Command Strip to stick mine to the back of the rear view mirror; hides it from the driver's view perfectly.

It records in 3-minute chunks. You can download an entire 3 minute file, or trim a file to the smaller portion you want before downloading it. Nice touch.

A lot of Xiaomi products aren't made by Xiaomi. Unless it is a phone, headphones or powerbank the chances are it isn't made by Xiaomi.

Xiaomi offer financial backing and product support to companies they think are making good products and sell through their platforms.

This is one such product. The Yeelight LED bulbs another good example.

You set a password through the app when you first set it up. I don't think the wifi is on all the time either, could be wrong.

Thanks TCF, very useful info

Looks good, shame it's so visible from outside the car

Certainly looks to be the same dash cam they put their name to.

Imagine Xiaomi's non-phone business like a Chinese, much bigger/effective version of Dragon's Den and you won't be far off their business model.

I really wouldn't worry about this. So many are visible, even those that are more subtle than this can be see. I have this and I have had no issues in the few weeks I have had it.

I bought a tiny pot of matte black enamel paint and 1 coat was enough. Pretty stealthy now!

Does this record at night when parked up

Why would you hide dash camera? I think is better to be seen..It might put somebody off doing something to the car

Not unless you hard wire it into the fuse box. You can buy a gadget that'll keep the camera recording video until your car battery drops to a certain level, then it'll kill power to the camera rather than let your car battery run entirely flat.

This guy's video might help -

Is it better then the mijia posted a few days ago for 29 £?

Re: Mijia - There are comparison videos on YouTube. Someone said in another thread that the Mijia app is in Chinese, whereas the Yi's is English.

Thanks. Can it be used to record video when the car is parked and there is an impact without hardwiring it? Asking as it has a small battery.

With luck car manufacturers will build these in as standard soon, these look somewhat tacky in my shiney morris minor. They really should be matt black and as discreet as possible.

Got this last time round...........it is fan-f-tastic for the money and the footage is mega.

FYI, screen can be set to turn off after a minute and you can change the wifi password to something sekerit

Just hide the wires in your a-pillar, hack a cheapo cigarette adapter to ribbons, bit of soldering and connect it behind the dash out of sight, Perfect.

HAWT

oh....fyi, it has to be wired imo as it only has a 10 minute battery or so to cover disconnects.

no parking impact recording as far as I am aware but perhaps that 10 minute buffer might cover short stints in the car park, you can manually set it to record in that case.

That's the one I bought, not as easy to put on as the one supplied with the camera but as it's suction cup, there's no real need to take it off the mount

wicked idea that!

Id buy this, if I didn't have to work out how to run the cable to power it. I wonder how long it would ruin from a 10000mah battery pack?

As it records hard braking and acceleration incidents as separate files I would imagine that a bump in a car park would also be enough to trigger the same event.

There's settings to adjust the sensitivity. Even on the lowest mine often triggers when I go over speed bumps at slow speeds. Or when I remove it meaning I have plenty of recordings of my fingers!

I might give this a try this weekend. I have two Xiaomi Mi power banks (one old, one V2). Not really sure how I could track how long it'll last though. Any ideas anyone?
