FYI -

ID spec distance and associated area max covered calculations ( 100ppf+ ):

This is the theoretical max based on raw pixels from the horizontal resolution and the FOV.
Actual real world results will be decreased due to the quality of the camera ( glass vs plastic lens, compression quality, sw/firmware,... ), installation view, as well as environmental conditions ( low light, haze, fog, glare off snow, water rain,.. ).


Practical meaning: Place your cameras in such a manner that any suspect / subject you wish to potentially ID is within this ID spec distance, as well as in a placement which will give you a high likelihood of obtaining a good facial image ( mount camera 8 feet or less high ).

Is this the same as Yi 1080p camera? Can the camera be detached from the base? I plan to install it in an outdoor enclosure for Nest camera.

How easily can this be hacked? Is it better to use it as a standalone camera and just pull the sd card when you want to check the history?

I don't think so, but Xiaomi has a Mi Home app that is similar to yi app, and with more features like floating video window in Android.

Not officially, but if you choose the locality to China, then it would.

Uh no. I have two. You have to do the hack and then only views on your home Wi-Fi.

Is coupon code good for only 1 unit? I tried to buy 2, but after applying the coupon code, I only get $5 off my whole order.

update: I found out it is a one time use coupon code, so only good for 1 unit. This is stupid. Consider canceling it or having another person to buy 1 more for me.

Bought this before replies were made in the thread. Absolutely no english instructions. Camera keeps speaking to me in chinese, yet the website ad has nothing but English. Funny how that works. Looks like I just wasted $30.

Be careful about Yoshop. I ordered this back in early Sept and after 40 days still do not receive it.

Update: I finally received 1 of the 2 cams but the other never left China. Yoshop refunded me on the missing cam, so I am satisfied about the resolution. I think their order fulfillment has a lot of issues, but at least they are not a scam. I still would not recommend Yoshop as it took them about 2 weeks to ship out the item and some items may not even be shipped. If you order from Yoshop, use Paypal. Refund, if needed, will be faster. There are other China exporter that is better like Gearbest.

Another Update: Two weeks after the refund, the camera suddenly arrived in my mailbox. Apparently somehow they put the wrong State on my address, and probably caused the long delay in shipping. I re-paid Yoshop, but I have already ordered another camera from Gearbest, so I guess I will have one extra camera. I can say Yoshop is not a scam but they really need some improvement in their order fulfillment department.

When it speaks Chinese, it is just saying the cam is ready for setup. You will see Yellow light flashing. What you need to do is download the Mi Home app from Play Store, or App Store if you have an iphone, and sign up a Mi account using USA (Singapore server). Once the App loaded, it should discover the cam. If not, you can manually choose the cam under products, enter your wifi password, and the App will generate a QR code for the cam to scan. Once scanned, your cam will connect to home wifi, and the Yellow light will turn to a steady Blue light indicating the Cam is connected to your network. Then you can use the Mi Home App to control and view the cam.
