This camera doesn't connect to server reliably with iphone.
Only useful as toy.
It works quite well with android phone.
I think iOS Mi Home app is quite buggy and slow.

Free shipping took about a month for delivery to southern california

Update: My camera's IR filter is stucked on. All images have purple hue.
Bad build quality. Not recommending but they at least refunded me.

Are you using app 4.2.5 version? make sure you use that version. do not upgrade.
Still android version is 100 time better than iOS app.

This camera hasn't worked for me since I got it. It fails to connect to any server I select. Save your money and look elsewhere. I'm using android.

Were you able to set it up? I had a hard time setting it up until I realized that the Camera doesn't work on 5 ghz. Once I switched my WiFi to 2.4ghz, my setup was successful and I was able to connect. I did have a few issues connecting to it when I was traveling far from home. I think it was the WiFi where I was at and was not reliable for constant live feed. So far, I am happy with it.

Hmm... Interesting, I'll have to try it. Thanks for the tip. I keep forgetting a lot of devices still don't like 5ghz.

I can't connect either. Was on 2.4ghz wifi. Contact the customer support. They want me to send a video to describe the problem.

I've had this camera for a few months now. Setup was a bit hard since I don't speak or read Chinese. I found a few videos online (youtube) that helped with the setup process. Upon receiving the camera and getting it setup the app was awful. There was a ton of Chinese verbiage and some text that looked like variable labels instead of proper English text labels (for buttons and such). I also experienced frequent disconnects, connection fails and other problems accessing the camera both inside and outside of home network.

Recently the application was updated and I can say that almost all of my above issues have been resolved. Connection stability is near perfect, 95% or more of the Chinese labels are now gone.

At this point, at this price point this is a great buy. The picture quality is outstanding!

Also there is a TON of work going on to try and hack these cameras like the original "Fang" cameras. Check here for updates (https://github.com/samtap/fang-hacks/issues/234).

I will end up buying more of these.
