This is the basic 720p versiion of the Yi Home camera, but the quality of this can often beat poor quality 1080 cameras. Can record onto an SD card (not included) or you can use their basic Cloud service for free. Subscription cloud options are available for enhanced service.

Black and White versions of the 720p camera are both available on the lightning deal

Note: if you have an iPhone their app is temporary not available - you need the app to set up the camera, so if you don't have an android device you may need to wait a while before can you set up the camera.

If you don't have Prime just find a cheap add on item for free delivery.

Have the 1080p dome camera which is very good. Also on offer at the moment at £37 with Prime delivery. amazon.co.uk/YI-…+HD
Thank you for posting.
I bought 1 the other day for 19.99. Was so impressed I asked a colleague with Prime to buy me another, which I gave to my parents as they're always worried when they go away for a few days, following a burglary 20 years ago.

I wanted another for my hallway to check on the dog.

These cameras simply just work. The setup takes 1 minute, the app reliable, the picture quality very good.

So happy I can buy 1 more at this price.
Can I use this as a baby monitor with a mobile phone?

No reason why not, you can also use two way audio if necessary to reassure the little one.

Just make sure you have a good stable WiFi connection. Never had any drop outs myself.

I know just ordered btw, non-Prime and still got free delivery, nice find OP, thanks
Looks like you can go back into your account and order the other colour at £19.99, i.e. get one of each at the offer price if you order them separately.
Just bought one of each at the Prime offer price, looks so easy to use and maintain.
Will use to catch my petty neighbours. Heat added!!!!

Correct.
Do these record on a loop function with sd cards like dash cams?
There seems to be many reviews saying that the app has been removed from the store. Still on Play Store. Not sure of iOS. Don't know what that's about.
Is it the yi home lite app? Looks to be available on the iPhone App Store
Yes, just read another comment and all the apps are back. Seems to have gone for a couple of days but back @vector8724
I have a similar camera..more cheaper..has a sd slot but doesn't record on it..why not?? I've tryed to catch Santa on action but the bloody camera didn't record a thing on the card...
Anyone know if you can view the video from the app without subscribing to cloud storage?

Yes, as it will write and play back from the SD card. If you have alerts turned on, it will capture a 10 second clip, but you can scroll through the timeline if you want to see more.
Alright. Thanks @mario999
Looks like one colour has gone back up in price now. (Was wanting to buy two!)

Ordered one will see what it’s like
do these work on a local network or do they need to be on the cloud - and if so what does it cost/how secure is it?
looks like the IOS app in available app link from 17 December 2017
Bought thanks guys but they literally ran out of stock of the black when I pressed it

You can only buy one for £19.99, get another prime member to buy you one
does it have an api so it can work on other apps rather than the yi one, or do you need to use the manufacturer app?

Doesn't have to be on the cloud, can be run off an SD card. There are plans though. €20 per year for one cam. €60 per year for up to five cams.
All gone now
These are great indeed!!! Even without an SD card, it records about a 3 second clip for you to see briefly what happened when it detected movement. iOS app back online now and works well.
got this through earlier but can’t find how to connect to their free cloud service. Would anyone have any pointers please?
You connect through the app and do all the cloud configuration in there . It will automatically do the 6sec uploads on movement detection (or you can use a local sd card), you need to pay for the additional service, there are several reasonably priced options.
There is no free option. Only a one month free trial
Scratch that looks like it does the basic service through activity alerts.
Looks like about a 10 min cooldown between alerts if you set it to high.

I've definately not activated the trial and can see the 6 sec recorded clips
