YI Home Camera 3, AI-Powered 1080p Indoor House Cam with Human Detection

Cheapest I have ever seen this camera.

I use this as a baby monitor and it is brilliant.

Can be used on the same App as the outdoor camera I posted earlier in the week.

  • BEST-IN-CLASS IMAGE QUALITY & NON-INVASIVE NIGHT VISION: Enjoy clear live-streaming and video footage in 1080P/30fps. The camera's 110° wide-angle lens with distortion correction and 4x digital zoom mean you will never miss a detail. See crystal clear images even in total darkness with no visible glare, thanks to the enhanced night vision with 8-infrared adjustable LEDs.
  • HUMAN & ABNORMAL SOUND DETECTION WITH ACTIVITY ALERTS: The AI-powered integrated human detection technology can recognize a human shape and differentiate it from other kinds of motion, such as flying insects, small pets, or light changes. Advanced sound analytics can detect abnormal noise between 50 and 90+ dB like a smoke alarm or shattering glass. The camera will send relevant activity alerts directly to your smartphone.
  • SCHEDULABLE ON/OFF & CUSTOMIZABLE ALERTS: The schedulable on/off function lets you set your camera's operating time for each day of the week. You can also adjust the alert frequency and the motion sensitivity level from low to high according to your needs, as well as completely disable your camera's motion detection. Only be alerted about the moments that matter to you most!
  • YI CLOUD STORAGE: Anytime activity has been detected by your camera, a 6-second video clip will be stored on YI Cloud and can be accessed and saved to your phone for 7 days via the YI Home app, with no additional cost or limitations (other storage options and other smart functions are available). LOCAL STORAGE: 8 - 128GB Class 4 and above micro SD cards are supported.
  • EFFICIENT DATA COMPRESSION: Enjoy faster live video streams and high-quality images while using 50% less of your home network thanks to a much lower bit-rate used by the enhanced video compression format. ADVANCED SECURITY: The optional pin-code to access the YI Home app and end-to-end encryption (the same used in the banking industry) via EU-based servers ensure full security and privacy for all of your videos.

You can stick a microSD card in it then it will record much much longer. I have recordings that is continuous as long as motion is detected.
Bought this when on offer last time out, can confirm it makes a great baby monitor, excellent night vision and the app is user friendly

Honestly, I really think the YI camera security issue was fixed back in 2018 - haven't seen any problems on internet since then after they issued a firmware fix - except from those who probably go out and burn down 5G masts blaming them & the Chinese for everything.
Here's what YI have to say about it - but even if they were telling the truth, there are those that still wont believe it

In answer to others -
Yes can record through glass at night as long as you turn off the IR illumination
SD card allows to record any movement for couple of months on a 32Gb card {These Version 3's allow for a 128Gb card}
Never come across this 6 second clip thing - although they can occasionally get warm & loose connection - maybe once a month - just unplug for 10 mins to fix
I have the output from mine on constant live feed on amazon fire tablets - very useful nowadays to see delivery vans & infected strays etc
.... and there's no need to pay a penny for any cloud storage etc if you've got a card inserted - unless camera gets stolen

All you have to do is click on the time line at the bottom if it has been recording you can move back and forth across all of the recordings, you can also turn off motion and it will record non stop as long as the card has space. It's all in the settings hope that helps

These are really quite good. The doom ones fails after a little while due to the mechanism falling apart then. But these static ones are good.

The sound on these are much better also.

Hello does anyone know if this camera could be run using I-Spy software which I use for a IP camera
or is it limited to the Yi app. Thanks

Yes, I've done that but you still get the prompt after 6 seconds & then return to the playback screen, no way round it afaik.
Reviews from people with previous model say this version has lost the ability to mask off areas of interest, and that the microphone isn't as good.

I have the old one and losing the ability to mask off an area of interest can make you receive a lot of alerts depending on how you position it.
I’ve got two of these and 360 versions, mine won’t playback any videos at the moment They have micro sd cards in which i’ve re formatted and latest firmware. Anyone have any ideas? all I get is video failed to load

What IS this 6 second thing ? I've had mine running for a year or more and not seen this... I use an sd card and never subbed to the server.

As soon as you view any recording it plays only 6 seconds of that video, it then redirects you & prompts you to subscribe to their Yi cloud service, you can then click back & your then given the option to either replay from the start our continue from the 6th second.
Secondly their is a firmware hack to avoid this but it doesn't look like it's for this version 3 just yet

Nope, never seen this.... is this via notifications ? if I double click on a camera in the app, I see a live feed, plus movement events at the bottom of the screen... any on these can last as long as there's movement - several minutes at times !

What prompt? The prompt to buy yi cloud? I don’t get that. Are you sure you have the latest app? The yi cloud ad is always at the bottom of my home screen but never ever shows up in my play back. I often have continuous footage of 10min in my kids room as he s a wiggles when sleeping. So the motion gets picked up.
I’ve 2 of these one started overheating but otherwise work
It's strange but when I click on the live stream I get a collection of video that was human detected & that's with a thumbnail of the video to the L/H side, I also have some with a picture of just the yi cam & it plays fine with the timeline along the bottom & I don't get any prompt with them ones, strange.
