In order to get your camera to record to NAS, you have to insert a SD card first. My camera flawlessly detected the QNAP TS212 drive and asked me what folder I want to keep the recorded files.

When I first got the camera, the camera wouldn't connect until I changed the region to China. Not sure whey since others are able to connect with US as region.

Just to be sure - is this a video camera that is always recording? And one where you can see the live recording on your phone?

Yes, it is always recording. You can install the Mi Home app and review the live/recording footage.

Scenario: leave it in room (shared housing) and at work/class I can see my room in real time?

Yes, depends on the server's traffic, your cellphone signal and your home wifi network, you can see your room in real time, also the certain period recorded footage depends on your micro SD card's capacity.

Does/can it also record say the entire day footage 8 hours I am away from home into a memory card? For example, if I come home and want to see what happened at 12 pm noon?

It all depends on the micro SD card's capacity. Larger the capacity, longer the footage period. 16/32GB should do the job. You can also get a Mi wifi router, any Mi camera connected thru the Mi wifi router offers you the option to transfer all the recorded video to the Mi wifi router connected USB hard drive daily.

I got 5 Mi cam set up thru out my house: front yard, back yard, basement, sun room and garage. They all work pretty well.

Can this camera be used with the Tinycam app or do you need to use the Xiaomi app?

Took a chance on this deal....although we've all heard the horrific stories about Gear best, I think that the risk is worth it considering the fact that Pay pal can be used as payment method......
Also I briefly want to comment that I've previously ordered 3 times from Gear best, and have personally never had an issue with any of my orders, so thank you for this OP

I think it records only when detecting motions, or you have to manually start recording on phone.

Under Settings>Storage
Activity Detection Recording (Videos will only be saved when activity is detected) ---- ON/OFF

If you want non stop recording assuming you have a 32/64GB card, do not check this block.

I don't have the setting.
only Settings->Motion detection

If turn off, it doesn't record at all. Am I missing something or are you using Xiaoyi?

EDIT: I got it. Settings->Motion detection->Record and save alarm video to SD

Thanks for the response qtqt. Bit concerned about the privacy/data sharing issues people have reported with their native app.

I've ordered three Mi Band 2s from GearBest and never had an issue. Shipping is slow but you know that up front.

Lightinthebox,on the other hand, is on my permanent shit list.
