Feel free to pay twice the price for 1080p. It's not twice as good. I have many of these in the static, dome and outdoor format and they are totally excellent all round, great IQ and really quick to setup. Also ridiculous value for money vs Nest, Hive, Logi etc which are 6-8x more per camera.

My only (tiny) complaint is that the app isn't really designed for lots of cameras and you need to get creative with the naming (eg numbers at the start) of a camera name to organise them. Really needs grid view and/or locations.

Um. They mount it at head height so it’s not immediately obvious and if someone does try and interfere with it they have to get up there and probably look right into it. At eyeline it’s obvious and can be sidestepped easily.

1080p and 720p there is little difference. VHS to DVD or DVD to HD, yes, worthwhile, but highly doubt at 720p a number plate isn’t readable but at 1080p it definitely is. At night your bigger issue is low light (and how much reaches the sensor) and signal/video noise not the number of pixels. TV analogy doesn’t work here, 720p is still perfectly good for just about everyone and it’s obviously dependent on size, at 32” or less I probably would accept a 720p.

1080p isn’t a few quid more, it’s twice the price. Anyway it’s a moot point because if you’re seriously trying to capture a number plate then you want the outdoor model which is 1080p only with a wide angle lens. You don’t want the indoor one behind a pane of glass and reflections.

Any chance for the smaller/slim version of YI in this price?
Does this use the same app as the Yi home camera? Thanks in advance
Any idea how to change default Admin passwords on these cameras?
was looking at this just yesterday....brilliant spot.........
Where do you record data too? If not cloud then they'll just get all your footage when they steal your stuff
Already got two. This makes my wired home CCTV redundant. These are easier to use, cheaper and much better quality video. The alerts and motion tracking are excellent and it works well at night through a window

Cloud free tier for 6-second motion clips, combined with memory card in the camera or pay for more cloud storage at monthly charge.

There are no admin passwords? You connect it to your WiFi network one-off.
I have the simpler home version. It wakes me up with loud clicking noises when it gets light. t could be the night vision sensor switch over, or the fact it is trying to find another wifi channel some people said? It isn't just a few clicks, it is a lot, and the noise is surprisingly loud...

Anyone know a fix for this? I

It's the night vision filter - mine used to do that in my hallway but has stopped. Or I've got used to it. Posibly try turning the filter of.
Does it run off the mains or is it battery only? If so, how long do the batteries last?

Mains powered
Has a mind of it's own.. quality fluctuates... won't keep recording once apps closed . this is the second one I've had thinking the first was faulty when it was regularly just turning without being told too ( and no motion tracking or favs were set ). Only reason I really keep it is I have no secure entry atm and the doors bolted shut outside so lets me see who is about . The night vision is so so ... not very shar p
I have the Yi home camera but find that the motion detection is really unreliable as it detects motion outside the zone I've highlighted and doesn't detect motion in the zone required. Can anyone who owns this comment on the motion detection for this model? Or indeed experience of motion detection on their Yi home camera.
Decent camera for the price. Tempted to buy another but don't really need it
Cracking price, what the advantage of this over the fixed indoor one? Apart from the motion/tilt

To record permanently to sd card it is not very intuitive but go to settings for your camera and under storage turn Activity Detection recording off. That will record everything.
You will still get alerts with 6 second clip pushed to phone then you can click entire clip and it will jump back to that point in time and you can watch as long as you like.
Also when viewing the camera you tap the screen you will get the timeline along the bottom and you can scroll to wherever you want in time.
I have the 720p home with SD card installed, only downside is that the motion notification can be a little late at coming through sometimes.
Any way to connect these to a Synology Surveillance station app?
Where do recordings store and does it alert your phone ?
I’ve got this camera in my living room. One day it started to pan around the room and follow me. Amused me to think that some Chinese spy had hacked in and was watching me in my boxers, picking my nose and scratching my balls wandering around the sitting room.
Hi all. Bought 2 1080p outdoor ones in the last offering and I have found the sound terrible when unmuted - buzzing, pops etc. I thought they were faulty so ordered 2 more and replaced one yesterday - exactly the same.

Is this just how they are (audiowise) or am I just unlucky?

I don't use synology but do use some other NVR software with my CCTV system and always stay well clear of these new cloud cameras as they only work with one app. You are therefore dependent on the company that make the camera continuosly supporting the app. At least with the old cheap Chinese cameras they used to come with a web interface built in and usually supported rtsp and often onvif but these new type of cameras don't. I would imagine you would need a camera that preferably supported the onvif standard to link up with your synology which these cameras do not support.

That's the same mistake most installers make, mounting cameras at roof/ceiling level.
Burglars generally wear hoodies, so you'll just get a nice shot of the top of their hoody and nothing else.

Try pointing a 720p at a number plate at night, unless it's really close you won't have anything useful.

1080P is a few quid more, what's the point in investing in equipment with half the number of pixels.
It's like buying a 720p TV because you can save £50.

Thanks - ordered one to have a play with it. Good to see it has a speaker so you can talk through the app and your voice comes through the speaker wherever you are. Shame it isn’t battery operated but still, for £25.99 inc next day delivery I’m giving it a go!

You could try running it off a power bank, no idea how long that’d go for (not sure how much power they suck up)but I had considered it. I don’t think the internal speaker is that good, someone else said that and I’ve never had much luck with the speaker/chat function on Yi or Clever Dog - I treat them as video only to be honest.

How do you sidestep an internal camera?
Stand anywhere in any room in your house and tell me someone could sidle past you unnoticed...

I've been there/done that - at work the "Professionally installed" cameras were all useless, the camera I relocated had eye level mugshot quality pictures of the gang from 4 feet away. In prison, job done.
That's the point, installers screw these things in the same place every time, so criminals look in the same place every time.

Incidentally, they don't care, they all stood there looking at every camera regardless. Maybe they were all thick, I don't know.

Yes lux is a bigger issue, but these are going to be much the same sensor tech, so it's back to pixels again.

Yes it's twice the price, but personally I'm not going to get off my sofa and cable up a half assed system, when I know a better version is £25 more. In hipster terms that's an avocado and two lattes.

Someone above mentioned using it through a window, not ideal but better than nothing I guess.

If you clap eyes on it you can definitely take another route to it where's if it's on the ceiling in the corner then you can't really. Maybe that's just me, I guess not being a professional criminal I'm not well versed

Still, I think for a low cost camera it will always have limitations and I'm not really expecting it to guard my entire house or office as if someone really wants they just have to cut the internet or power and that's the end of that.

I think my point here is that if you're going for a true security system type setup with evidence etc then pay the extra money for the right tools, not a low cost (but good value) Chinese cloud camera. And yes, light glare is an issue so if it's really for monitoring outdoors, getting the proper outdoor camera is well worth the money - was £80, currently £57 and worth every penny.
Not gonna vote it cold (this time...) but cloud fees are bad.
