Here's fun Q&A from the Amazon page ^_^

Heard people have used outdoor cases make for Nest cameras and hacked it a bit by adding material on the back of the camera to force the face of the camera to that of the case.

When using it outside try to place the camera appropriately if you plan to use it to help ID subjects / suspects, mount it lower than 8 feet:

ID spec distance calculations ( 100ppf+ ):
compare:
Arlo Pro 720p at 130 degress: 5.644 feet
Logitech Circle 2 (V-R0008) 1080p at 180 degrees: 6.11 feet
YI Home Camera 720p at 111 degrees: 6.61 feet
Blink XT - 720p ( 1080p version is planned ) at 110 degrees: 6.67 feet
Arlo Q 1080p at 130 degrees: 8.47 feet
Nest Cam outdoors / Nest Cam IQ 1080p at 130 degrees: 8.47 feet
Reolink Argus 1080p at 130 degrees: 8.47 feet
Canary Flex 1080p at 116 degrees: 9.488 feet
Amcrest ProHD 1080p IP2M-841 / IP2M-841B at 90 degrees: 12.23 feet

LaView 2MP bullet camera (LV-PB932F4) 1080p 79 degree: 13.9 feet
LaView 4MP bullet camera (LV-PB3040W) 2688 x 1520 79 Degree:19.5 feet

Lorex 2MP / 1080p camera at 90 degrees: 12.23 feet
Lorex 3MP camera at 75 degrees: 15.65 feet
Lorex 2K / 4MP cameras at 83 degrees: 18.56 feet
Lorex 2k / 4MP cameras at 101 degrees ( like the LKB343B in a lorex kit from costco online ): 17.12 feet

Collects data, passwords, browsing history, time spent on websites unrelated to the company, etc...

I had these cameras for about 2 weeks. They were exactly what I needed and I really liked the image quality.
After an app update I read the "privacy policy". I will post screen caps of it. It doesn't match the one posted on the website. it states that they collect information ,including browsing history, passwords, etc..., and stores the info on the servers. It also states they'd can share it with third parties. There is no need for that. Returned these for a refund.

Good camera, has excellent motion detection and notification capabilities.

Some other cameras I had detected motion when the sunlight changed. This camera seems to be programmed better. The notifications are great. It gives you a small video clip when motion is detected. Also easy to setup.

Thanks OP. I have a couple Oco's but thought I'd give this Yi 720p a try. Viewing live or viewing clips via a website would be a nice option but I don't think that's yet available--pipe in if I'm wrong on that. (EDIT: desktop client is avail on their website) Thanks again, OP.

Picked up 2 of these the last time it was at the same price. Easy set up and the yi app is more reliable better than foscam app, imo. I'm using one in my garage.

I'm running a few Foscam cameras, and don't like the Foscam app either. Can you run Foscam cameras through the Yi app?

Thanks in advance.

Can these be set up outside where it still gets protection from the rain and snow? I have a corner by my porch that I can use but will it survive the hot and cold elements?

Is this good for baby monitor? Can the motion be notified to multiple phones?

Got the 1080p version camera for 60$ last week. Any coupons on 1080p version?? I am really impressed with its performance.
