No ONVIF
Good price for the 1080, though the 720 has been as low as sub-£15 and may well be again on or around Black Friday - for everyday "keeping an eye on the dog" type use there's not much between them so folks may want to wait for that. Still, good deal, hot.
Works great as a baby monitor

What is ONVIF? Was looking to purchase one?
It means that other apps & programmes can access the video stream. Without it you're locked into using the vendor's app & software.
Are these compatible with Alexa yet?

I have 2, I wouldn't worry about using the YI app, it is very good and easy to use. I cannot fault these cameras very good value and good picture quality.

I did this for a previous Chinese version of this camera but every few weeks it crashed & I got fed up re-flashing it. There was also no security for the rtsp server.

I have the 6FUS Version and it's been fine since i flashed it a couple of weeks ago. I don't expose my camera to the web so security isn't an issue.

Please how do you flash the unit
Get the Victure camera from Amazon instead £17.99 each on prime delivery, excellent quality as I have 4 now lol
Do you have to use the cloud facility? I was wondering whether there is an option of data only being streamed straight to the phone only.

No you don't have to use the YI cloud service. You can use a micro SD card to save recordings that you can access via the app. I assume you could also simply have it as a live stream device if you don't have either the micro SD or cloud service set-up, but I have not tried this.

Have a few of these and find them and the app fantastic for value for money.
How does this differ from the one that was on a lightning deal last week (hotukdeals.com/dea…237)?

It's still in the box, should I return it and get this one?

Yours is a dome camera so you can pan & tilt (move) where the camera is pointing through the app. The camera in this deal is static - you have to physically move the camera unit to change it's field of view. Yours is only 720p whilst this is higher resolution at 1080p. As to which is best for you its entirely depends on what you want/need to use it for.
Does this allow zonal motion sensing? I.e. higher sensitivity in certain spots of the frame and no sensitivity to motion in others?
app for this is terrible
It might be worth considering what kind of security these cameras possess. The example below (Victure PC530) is currently selling well on Amazon UK and is wide open, and could end up giving someone access and control of other devices on your WiFi network.

The manufacturer appears to have no interest in your privacy.

It's not as complex as you're asking. You can specify a motion area with a red square - only one square area though.
No Google or alexa integration, otherwise flawless ipcam

Disagree. I'd like to see a few more features, but I find it perfectly functional. Motion sensor notifications were erratic in the past, but I've found them very consistent for the last few months (Android/Note 9). The Windows app is even more sparse but has the nice feature of being able to have 4 cameras streaming simultaneously which might make it suitable for small shop security or similar.

Here's another example for you

Yi IoT Home Camera Riddled with Code-Execution Vulnerabilities


Cloud services (P2P) can create multiple vulnerabilities too:- pierrekim.github.io/blo…tml

Best approach is to buy IP cameras with ONVIF support and have them isolated from the internet inbound and out, and only accessible remotely through your own VPN server on your LAN, which could be run on an openwrt router or a raspberry PI.

Is the size for that square adjustable? I want to exclude foliage that's in the view as currently on the dome cameras, they trigger a lot of notifications.

Don't know if this sites allows ali express but on the 11th they are having a sale and on the official yi store on there site these are going to be £15 or 2 for £26.. Let's just say my carts full ready to purchase items
Is this actually good? I don't know anything about camera security.

Are Alexa integrated ones better.. And for what reason?

When did you purchase yours? Was wondering if they now ship version 47US or 6FUS.
