This isn't true. With an SD card you get continuous recording onto the card which you can watch back in full.

I have 4 setup.

Never had to power cycle or do anything with them.
I also do not have a subscription.

I can only recommend.
Perfect to aim at neighbour's houses and shopping them to the police with this snitch phone line a few forces are setting up. We're getting the full on Soviet Union experience right now, feels very authentic.
I have 2 indoor dome cams and 1 outdoor cam as in OP. All with SD cards. All with continuous recording on SD card which I can access from my phone anytime. The 6 second notifications whenever movement is detected are stored to the free cloud service. Stick a 64gb card in and there is no need to subscribe.

YIOUTDOOR this is the code.
First time this has been under £40 I believe. Well worth the money. Also great for porches or even indoor use - quality is very good and setup extremely simple.
Many cameras promoted there every day. Understandably Amazon say prioritising essential home item deliveries, so rest seem much delayed !
Anyone know if it can trigger actions to turn hue lights on? Also I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have zones so will notify/record anything within vision?

If you say so, that doesn't apply to the indoor dome cam, it's only a 6 sec clip onto sd unless you subscribe.

It is not lawful to point these into private property without permission of the owner. If you are affected by this, you can request they don't do it, then if you want notify the police.


In the image a few posts up, the houses on the left could request he/she adjusts the camera, also the house opposite and to his left.

Most people are not arsed, but it is not legal to record someones private property without the owners permission.

I have four of these at home and another four with family and friends. Proving to be very reliable where wifi signal is good with easy to use app and easy to access footage via microSD (I don't pay for cloud, there's no need).

I dont subscribe and it is continuious to the SD, better if you set it up correctly and use motion sensing then it triggers and uses the storage efficiently.
Long time to wait for delivery..

This is definitely not true. I've got three different Yi cameras and they are all the same, including the indoor dome camera. SD card records continuously on all.

Why would it only record 6 seconds onto SD? That's what you get with the cloud anyway so there would be no point in having an on board storage option if that was the case.

Rubbish. I have 10 Yi cameras - four of them are indoor dome. All 10 record continuously to their SD cards when they detect movement. I do not have a subscription.

Detection area can be set, I use this on all my outdoor cameras, very effective. App does not have automation options though you could likely cobble something together with tasker.

yes, but it doesn't work effectively so you can't rely on it. So, no.

Nope. You can view extended clips from SD without issue. You can also flash them (if you run Homebridge or similar) and have them show up in your iOS Home app as an unofficial Homekit product. I’ve a few of these and they’re ace.

If you wanted to get a copy of the footage from say yesterday on your laptop from the outdoor camera, would you have to physically take out the SD card?

No. Just use the app. It will connect with the camera and you can view.
No subscription required.
I've had these cameras for over a year and have been very impressed. I use micro SD cards and do not subscribe to their cloud service. Always been reliable and never let me down. Last night however my broadband went down around midnight and came back on in the morning. None of the cameras reconnected so had to power cycle them and then I noticed none had recorded anything during the time the broadband was down. No idea why as they should have recorded to the SD cards regardless of an internet connection.

Yes they record audio though wind(even a light breeze) can stop effective recording. Alexa integration is useless IME, slow and laggy.
There is some customer firmware available which allows you to access the cameras using the IP address rather than the app. I believe it is also possible to upload directly to Google drive. I have one I tried it all on and access worked but was a bit beyond my skill level to work out how to do the Google drive bit

Not necessarily. On your app, If you want to take a snapshot, it's as easy as replaying/pausing the video playback and pressing the snap button. If you want to take a video, you'll go back to your start point in the playback, press record, let it play through to your end point, and then stop the recording. This is ok for short clips but if you need somewhat lengthy footage and don't want to play it all back in real-time, then it's easier to take it from the memory card.

These are great cameras, I have 4 of them. No cloud subscription needed. Just put micro sd card in. The iOS app is better than the android one though.

Yes. The app shows you a list of clips where motion has been detected which you can download but these are only 6 seconds. You can see a timeline of events and scroll to where it plays the full video and record snippet you wish which then downloads. This can be as long or short as you want.
One thing to note if you have it set to record motion only then it takes a second or two to initiate so tend to miss the first part. Due to this I changed the setting to record permanently. You still get the motion alert preview clips but can download the full event. For example once someone was trying car door handles in my road. My camera caught them walking away from my car instead of also (the more useful) walking to my car. After this I set it to record all the time.
I have some yi indoor dome cameras, mine are the type with sdcard, I find them excellent, I want an outdoor one for nighttime without the hindrance of double glazing, an outdoor version would have helped evict my neighbours with less time going through my sdcard and saving the portion on my phone etc as behind double glazing it doesn't always trigger the notification.

I also have raspberry pi motioneye cameras set up at other angles, but for ease of use I do like the yi cameras with the sdcard capability without spending a subscription.

Btw. I'm going to invest in some poe cameras soon aswell of another brand not where I live that is not using proprietry software.
You can record things off the sdcard on the yi app straight on to your phone video gallery even if not on the saved section, I've looked back a few weeks and then press record and then record again when you want to stop, you can also toggle the record quality before you press record. I use it when I need a longer time segment. Also once saved when you look in your google video gallery and look at info its file would indicate some additional info to the video.

Please can you point me to this firmware? Really want one but don't want to shackled to the system
