With the app disabled via the hacked firmware, do you find you have to reconnect them to WiFi any time they lose power? I have a couple of indoors yi cams, with the m-star variant of the hacked firmware. Every time they lose power I have to scan the QR code to reconnect them, and haven't found a way around this
If the camera is installed at a decent height then it greatly reduces the chances, can also replace the screws with security screws, or if no other option and it's fitted quite low I have seen them used with a steel cage type cover that protects the camera not only from theft but also other damage. You will also get a 6 sec clip of the incident stored to the cloud for free.
Got one of these last year, warning, the nut that hold it breaks really easy - water gets in, it freezes and cracks the nut rendering it useless. I luckily had something similar and cut it off then glued/screwed it on this, still works fine but if I hadn't had the spare bit it would have been binned. They are good, but are a bit of fun getting to link up to wifi sometimes, well, most times. Once it's connected fine, but getting it to connect.....
I've had several Yi camera's for well over 6 years now and never had a corrupted card.
I've had Arlo's for years and upgraded when the Pro's came out. They're awful for the cost. Mainly the app is the problem. Often won't connect or says offline when they aren't. Also the speaking facility, where you can talk and listen to a visitor has never worked, it has massive lags. That's with a fast fibre optic broadband and good 5g phone connection. It's always been the same. Much better and much cheaper options available, especially if you don't need them to be self powered (the only reason I have them)
Great wit but for One camera?....Nah!!!
hehehe - I wish I could take credit - but really funny... (ninja)
“I am always monitoring this” - I see what you did there ;)

Because you say it doesn't make it a fact. To try and help you I have posted below a extract from a security camera websites showing the megapixel size of 4k cameras 8MP = 4k full frame with a resolution 3840 x 2160 giving 8,294,400 pixels 6MP = not a standard but normally a resolution of 3840 x 1660 giving 6,144,000 pixels The amount of pixels within screens has taken a giant step forward with 2K and 4K resolutions. Industry standards typically represent the 2K Extreme HD pixel ratio as 2048 x 1536 and 4K Ultra HD as 4096 x 2160. If we take the later it gives a resolution of 8,847,360 but still referred to as an 8mp camera. If you want to work it out multiply the pixel width by the pixel depth. I think you may be confusing Megapixels (MP) with Kbps which measures the data transfer of the camera. Kbps Stands for "Kilobits Per Second." 1 Kbps is equal to 1,000 bits per second. That means a 300 Kbps connection can transfer 300,000 bits in one second. 1,000 Kbps is equal to 1 Mbps. Kbps is primarily used to measure data transfer rates.
I know, all them shops are wrong selling 4k 12mp cameras. But you are right and will always be right....
No it isn't as 4K is 8MP.
The C800 has a max frame rate of 12.5fps. Your comment stating 4k video is 12mp is wrong, its actually 8mp. For clarity, I plugged in a C800 and here is a snap shot of the fps options at 4k It's a good enough camera just not as good as the previous version which was metal and had more software control.

Amazon handles Eufy's logistics and it'll come from the same place, so I'd say whichever is cheaper. You can probably get cashback from Eufy or use the recommend a friend offer to save some more if you buy there.
Better to buy from Amazon or from Eufy direct? Same price, really tempted after having an attempt on the garage last night.
Depends how many alerts you get. My back garden gets around 5-6 months but the front (lots of activity) probably gets 3-4 months.
Less than a year and my batteries are faulty. Common problem. Likely won't order from eufy again.
4 to 5 months. Ish. Not so much that you always feel like you're up the ladder!
Agree radar is a joke, great Wi-Fi is key with Ring, I have a 6 unit mesh network so fast speeds everywhere, image quality on the Pro 2 is stunning but I also have my hard wired system with high resolution cameras, but the problem with them is the size of hard drive you need to store the video and pictures so I invested in an 8TB hard drive, 5mp cameras are standard now.
As many of you I had a number of camera brands with number of apps but finally, replaced all with Ring as they have more advance interface and with £80 PY plan which works even internet goes down with the Ring alarm. I have 2 occasions they have call me to check so very happy with 24 hours monitoring for this prices.
I know all about Ring Products thanks. I imported my original Ring doorbell V1 from the US before it was available to buy in the UK. I also bought a Ring Pro 2 when it was released, but the satellite map images for birds eye view were a joke and I also had audio issues with mine where you couldn’t hear audio from the bell, so I sent it back. Ring are great for speed notifications and OK image quality, but you need something with better resolution as well because Ring unfortunately just can’t cut it in that department.
I started your way with a hitch pot of cameras, trust me its a nightmare, as I said above SPEED of response is paramount and Ring gives you that. I still have all my other cameras and will have them as backups, most similar to what you have that I have bought over the years, and by the way buy the Song Pro 2 doorbell it knocks spots of anything else its absolutely superb with much higher resolution and head to toe fisheye recording, I posted a deal on here for it, pay the extra £10 and get the new Chime in the package deal, its worth it as they are £29 on their own and work very well, unfortunately its just been launched and I paid the full price but hopefully someone else can benefit ;) https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ring-doorbell-pro-2-latest-launched-a-couple-of-weeks-ago-with-head-to-toe-vision-3714891
I think the best made cameras are the Reolink Argus 2, they are solid but no SD card capability, I have a bundle of them with battery and additional Solar panels, Netatmo has the SD card but playback is slow and unreliable over wifi, Blink are Blink, cheap and cheerful again no SD card, I have Neos Smart cams in my camper van running off the wind there, they are cheaply made but do the job, Nest cameras are overpriced and again no SDS card facility, so the winner for me is Ring without doubt. It's not just the cheapness of the camera but the reliability of the alerts and speed of getting them, I have 18mths free Protect from Ring but happy with £80 a year, if you buy the Ring Camera spotlight Twin Pack i posted on here you get 6mths of Ring Protect Free so maybe try that and save your 32.50 a month for 6 months as well, they are only £224 for 2 a bargain when normally £179 each, I bought 4 of these last week and 4 extra batteries from AO at £17 each with free postage. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/its-back-ring-battery-spotlight-camera-special-offer-3714676 With almost zero policing you need to protect yourself, and deter criminals, its no good crying after you have had your house invaded and items stolen, its always nice to be able to offer the police any angle of the criminal they want from all your cameras.
That's why I went with TP link, no smart features but SD card storage so no additional costs. Motion detection works well and you can set up to alert depending on that. 25 quid. Saying that, I'm only using it as a dog monitor when I'm out.
Heat Added 🔥
These are good but without a subscription it’s just a live feed, no going back to look at previous events. Suppose that’s the same with most of these cameras! 😏
Very, very tempted at this price but I'm going to hold my nerve and see what's announced during Google IO next week. I'd like a couple more of these but at a higher resolution, without shelling out IQ money
Its a pan/tilt, but even so they make cheaper ones themselves so not sure why this one is so much. https://kamistore.eu/collections/kami-smart-home-cameras/products/yi-dome-guard?variant=39514835026114
Seems v expensive for an internal wifi camera.
Good point, this is a poor deal considering it's a lot cheaper on Amazon for the same. (Before anyone says it's a different make read below) it's the same camera, it's the sister brand name. They do this to capture more of the market. You can use the YI App for both, as everything is the same. Voted cold
Is this not similar to the YI dome X for £31.99 on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/YI-AI-Powered-Surveillance-Detection-Time-Lapse-White-Grey/dp/B07XRJ2P46/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=yi+dome+camera+1080p&qid=1620111720&sprefix=yi&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExNjkxMzE1TVpYM001JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODkwNDE3MVhTSTZDQ0NXRlVYSiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODMzNTA0NkJGQkFLMFM1VktMJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=
Device is good. If you place camera in busy are cameras die very quick (within a week if in a busy room) a month in a hallway for me. Occasionally you'll see cameras being offline which can be annoying.
Yes, Amazon Germany. Quite a bit cheaper. 162.94 GBP MasterCard exchange rate.
Great, thank you!
I believe the base station has 16gb of storage, iirc. There's a representative example of how many clips/triggers that equates to somewhere in the setup. No paid subscription necessary.
Would anyone know if this camera has free storage? It says on the website it stores up to 3 months of footage but does this require a paid subscription service?
The ones I have are powered via a mains adaptor. But they have the option of either WiFi or Ethernet (not POE). As far as I know these connections are for monitoring, no idea if you could link it to a NAS. My cameras use internal micro SD cards rather than the cloud option as it’s free.
Oh, it has Ethernet too? (y) POE? The "AI powered person detection" - Do you need to pay extra for this? If so, anyone know the cost for their cloud? One of the reviews mentions RSTP, so I could have multiple, power using Ethernet Switch, and then record to my NAS - anyone doing this, and can comment how well it works with 4+ cameras?
These cameras are great!
I'd feed the cables up through the bottom of a cheap ~£1 waterproof junction box, easier to remove the camera if it goes wrong too. If you can't find one with big enough gland holes for the socket, cut a slot into one at the bottom of the box.
The power cable end/sockets are so big I’m lost on how to pass it through 3-4mm hole in my wall..
Homework too difficult for baby Jaddy? Does mummy know about her cheeky monKEY’S bad playground behavior, name calling and willy waving is so childish. You’re wasting your time trying to pick that Fisher-Price safe at nursery it’s for the over 5s, ask them to give you the plastic drill back and then maybe you'll stop crying. ps Simtraders19 still supplied me with FAKES.
Us Locksmiths earn big money using our knowledge rather than spelling, you utter donut
1/10 Is that the best you can do? Well, you thought you were being smart by deleting all your badly spelled comments but you can't remove the one when baby was having a tantrum, calling names and threatening to run off. “Its only simple simon that says he has bought 2 from them and they was fake, i bought loads and all seem perfect, he has provided zero proof he actuallybought from them, id say its bs as they have been out of stock for the last 5months, no idea how a mod can expire over 1 person saying its fake, simple simon then tried to say im the seller, im not, I wont waste my time posting one single deal on this pathetic site again.” As a little treat I thought that when you finish nursery today you would like a little homework editing your mistakes. As a starter I am really surprised you do not know i, i’d and i’m should all have a capital "I", especially as your up yourself and this probably comes as a close second to “me” in your vocabulary. ps I will not be removing my comments because it is true Simtraders19 supplied me with FAKES.
Fakes can be pretty good - I wouldn't expect to be able to tell visually. Tried updating the firmware?
on or off....thats the same for ALL of the Reolink cameras. Theres a good video showing the camera and the reolink desktop software options in the videos section of the 4k camera - second video by a guy with an "interesting" accent thats about 12 mins long....
That is on my list along with the the 5mp with optical zoom. On your 4k is possible to lower the brightness of the IR

What's the model number of your Reolink, thks
i have the reolink 4k, and if you change the settings you can pick up moving Number plates, if thats your thing (IR on, 3dNR off, fast shutter and low gain)
I bought 2 of these back at the beginning of the year, I’m really impressed with them. Sure they’re not the best quality and there are bound to be better options but for the price I consider them to be brilliant, they don’t do cloud recording (which was an advantage in my mind) hq is much better quality (but higher bandwidth)
So in the app, just select the camera you want, then in the top bar change LQ to HQ. I'm sure the quality also depends on your Internet connection and WiFi strength.
