Very easy setup. Video quality both daytime and night time is superb. I do have mine set to HD, not auto. The 920nm IR is excellent - no "red lights" glaring across the room at night! The camera does NOT have to be connected to wifi/internet to record video to the SD card (major plus compared to other indoor cameras). I didn't like the bright white of the stands, cords or chargers. I used Rust-Oleum flat blank spray paint to spray the stand and the charger. The camera can be removed from the stand by depressing the locking clips on the right and left side of the camera body. If you paint the charger use masking tape to cover the usb slot and the outlet plugs. I purchased 10 foot black USB to microUSB cords to replace the 6' white cords. With the stands, cords, charger and the camera all black, it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb when sitting on the top of a bookshelf, dining room hutch or other place to secret a camera. I would suggest purchasing a battery backup like the TalentCell Rechargeable 12V 3000mAh DC Lithium Ion Battery Pack (sold on amazon) so that if the power goes out, your cameras will still work. I don't like paying for the cloud storage solution Yi offers, so I'm only using 32gb micro SD cards in the cameras. Two drawbacks to these cameras, and these kept the camera from getting 5 stars from me: 1) the video on the SD card does not get written with a date/time stamp on the video itself. 2) the file size is 1 min long (approx 4.5mb) on the SD card. A friend of mine, who is a criminal defense attorney, said this would be a problem if you tried to use the video in court. the defense can always claim, rightly so, that the video does NOT show when the event happened and that the video would have to be edited together to view the full context of the event. Other than the date/time stamp issue, I highly recommend these cameras!

This Camera WILL NOT WORK unless you give Yi access to all of your personal information, and a internet signal to use so they can download your video feeds even if you don't use the cloud service. With in minutes of installing, the camera began sending back information on the wifi without permission or prompting, I thought the reviews saying that the company was collecting personal data were wrong however they seem to be totally true. There is absolutely no reason that this camera should not be able to work without a live internet connection.

Before buying these you need to know some positive and negative points about them:1. The sensor is SUPER sensible, which means that even in the lowest setting you’re still going to receive alerts from the app because of a bug or an abrupt change of lightning.2. The two-way audio function sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t. You can definetly get someone’s attention with it but it’s impossible to establish a conversation (at least in my case with an average download speed of 21 Mbps).3. With night vision the camera is still doing good for at least 70 ft.4. SD cards only record when it detects activity so with an 8gb SD card you can store at least one week of footage.5. Power cable is 7 feet long.Conclusion: Pretty good home surveillance camera, I would recommend putting these on a high place with some mounts that you can find on Amazon.

Mr. James

Camera platform functions well and video quality really is good considering the price point. Then I read the privacy policy!!! For some reason, I overlooked the reviews related to this prior to purchase. No thanks! There is specific language within the policy to allow permissions to view your video, track web usage and passwords, even related to social media accounts. YI advised they were changing this back in December of 2017. As of March 2018, nothing has changed within the privacy policy.

Alright, so I'm a tech guy, love anything electronic! I have had CCTV cameras in my house for years. I've been using Swann wired cameras for the most part with mixed emotions. But running new wires to upgrade the system just didn't excite me.I had been looking at NEST cams since I have the smart Thermostats and Smoke/Carbon-monoxide detectors for a while, but the price is ridiculous! Plus your only option with them is cloud service (an additional cost). Then I spoke with a neighbor who sent me a screen shot from his YI camera. I must say, the quality was pretty impressive.So I bought a four pack for $119.00 with moderate expectations. Let me tell you I'm super impressed with the picture quality of these cameras. Set up is quick and easy. When I purchased them I had no idea they had audio as well. The audio quality is incredible, plus it's a two way speaker. Purchased 32 GB SD cards for all of them so I didn't need to use cloud storage and it's been working great! I have them set to record all motion and I usually have about 7 days of history on each camera.Day and night vision are both spectacular IMO. I have attached several photos so you can see the quality both day and night. Side note, I have a couple "indoor cams" mounted outside. To do this I purchased a rubber sleeve/cover from Amazon to make the drop cam weather resistant for outdoor application. It's been through rain, sleet and snow with out issue so far. Link to cover: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FD5XHMP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1A couple cons, the power cable is sooooooo short. I had to purchased longer cables for a couple of my installs. No biggie, they are only a few dollars here on Amazon. The app for iOS is very functional, but it has no multi camera view which would be a nice option.
