    The cloud wasn’t working for a while but it seems to be back up. Great cloud access and viewing now that everything is working.
  • Terrible app

    By AA31288
    The camera works well enough and so does the app... when it actually works. It can take up to twenty minutes for me to turn on the camera due to all the thinking/loading the app does when I go to settings. Doesn’t matter if I’m on WiFi or have strong cell service. Exiting out or redownloading hasn’t worked either. Not really worth it if half the product doesn’t work consistently.
  • Why is YI controlling my views?

    By iPhoneUserApple
    Response: Cameras are being controlled by app not me! Jumping to different cameras as soon as motion is detected without my control! Why? Fix your app! Won’t be buying more YI products! Ongoing server down issue for most of 2019! Pay to back up cameras to cloud? You’ve got to be kidding? You can’t back up your own servers before launching yet another fail update! Why trust YI cloud! These were once the best home cameras now no longer reliable seems they can’t pay the bill to keep servers up now it’s the app AND the servers! Roll it back six months before you ruined it. They just dumped a lot of camera inventory at Home Depot YI must be going out of business...
  • Love it

    I love my cameras. Easy set up. Very clear videos. The night vision is amazing. I love how many options you have to set the angles to make sure everything you need to see is in view.
  • Failure

    By dont care aa
    Whenever I travel for work the cameras fail to produce on time video. Almost as soon as I leave they fail to produce anything. You can’t restart them remotely. They become in unuseable. What is their purpose? Why buy Yi cameras if they don’t work when away from home. The new updated app is garbage. I can use the app to connect and see that the camera connectable and ping able but still does not produce video.
  • Sweet!

    Now I can catch my kids and wife in lies and sandals! My life is going to change for best! Or possibly worse. Either way, I set these up and the clarity is good and super easy to get going. Very happy customer!
  • Ease of Operation

    By clydep
    Cameras are the essence of simplicity to set up. The absence of batteries makes them great for setting up and forgetting.
  • Great for the money

    Great quality
  • Good camera but with 1 issue

    By Scuoteguazza
    I originally bought the four pack of cameras to use for monitoring our vacation house. They work well. I then added a fifth camera which worked for a while. Then it won’t connect and refresh the image. When I unplugged it the camera worked again. Now it’s offline again. Can’t reset it because we’re not at the house currently. Frustrating!
  • Frustrating

    By A Zuccaro
    I’ve had these cameras for almost a year and they were great at first, I was able to keep a live feed watch over what my dogs were up to when we are out, but since the new update to the app, it skips from page to page while you were trying to view either the live feed or a recorded feed rather it’s on your SD card or the cloud! It is very frustrating!! Makes me want to throw my phone! I have tried everything to fix it including resetting the cameras and removing the app completely and reinstalling on my phone. I am at my wits end! maybe someone has a suggestion on how to fix this problem?
