What is posted below DOES NOT WORK with current camera firmware. While it might have worked with previous older models. It doesn't with current. I've tried multiple times on 2 of these cameras that I fully regret that I purchased. I don't know what was the intent of this post below. If it was to share information or to get more people to buy this awful cameras. It's simple. The maker of this camera simply needs to unrestrict the firmware as they had before (that way you could use what remains of the functional hardware the way you want). Until then all these things are for the Chinese to peek into your home. And possibly leave you open to a major hack attack on your private home network. There is a reason why these are so cheap. Good luck.
==================================

These things are great, but not with the factory firmware. Run the following firmware instead:
https://github.com/fritz-smh/yi-hack

Installation is simple:
- Download the zip at the above link
- Format an SD card (usually included) to FAT32
- Copy the contents of the "sd" directory to the SD card
- Insert the SD card in the camera and boot it

The hack enables rtsp, telnet and http. I've been running 7 of these 24/7 for the past 1.5 years. 5 of the 7 are outdoors in areas that are only covered by the eves of my home. I use mine with ZoneMinder (More info here: https://forums.zoneminder.com/vie...hp?t=25261)

The rtsp streams can also be used directly in something like Home Assistant.

This is a great deal on these cameras. The best I've see so far was roughly $11 per camera on Black Friday in 2016.

What about the privacy concerns the very top reviewer mentions? That sounds pretty unsettling to me. Any thoughts?

Can these both (Yi as well as your WYZE) be configured in a generic IPWebCam app like Tinycam Pro or do these need a dedicated app like MiHome like Xiaomi Dafang ipcam?

There is another review by George G saying that under its private policy , the company is allowed to record you and your family for up to 6 seconds at a time.

Thanks for reminding about WYZE. Just about to purchase 4 for my parents. May as well spend a little more to get 1080p if WYZE is also easy to setup. I got to do a quick googling on the ease of setup for both systems... I personally have Nestcams that are really easy to setup and comes with 3 hours online rewind feature for free. Love the Nestcams, but it is 5x the price of these...Anyways, Thanks.

If you can wait a bit (they are backordered), definitely get the Wyze, video quality is much better and they have cool features like sound and smoke alarm detection.
