Ratings and Reviews
Peace of mind for low cost
I’m glad I have these. They have really Lear picture quality and are so easy to set up. The night vision is even really good. I like that I don’t have batteries to replace or recharge. The app has a good amount of setting features so you can customize the sensitivity, the microphone and speaker functions, set up times for the motion alerts to be on/off, etc. It also allows me to share my cameras so that other family members can view live footage and get alerts if you give permission.
I wish the motion alerts were longer than 6 seconds. The motion alerts definitely work great (and sometimes are too sensitive, but that’s adjustable) as they pick up headlights in the street that shine in my front window, my pets entering a room, a squirrel on my deck, etc. We recently added micro SD cards to our cameras and that allows us to go back and review a timeframe where I want to see more than a 6 second clip.
I have one camera facing out a window and it works great during the day. However, at night, the glare from inside decreases picture clarity significantly and makes the motion alerts sorta pointless since it detects all the movement inside the room instead of outside in the yard. It might be better to buy an outdoor camera if that’s what you plan to use it for.
I’m very impressed by the quality of the video this camera has. We got the YI Dome camera as a gift mainly to use as a baby monitor. Impressed how super easy it is to setup. No instruction manual but I assumed the app would guide me. However other non-tech savvy people may have issues knowing how to get started. When I looked up the price to order another for the baby’s room I couldn’t believe how affordable this camera was. I paid $165 for a baby monitor and the quality of the video isn’t as clear or colorful as the YI Dome. Very happy with this product. I haven’t tried the night vision yet but noticed the intercom is pretty loud & clear. I noticed a lag in the video by a few seconds and same with the audio. However I’m just using this for the baby so I can watch him with our babysitter while I’m at work. This puts my mind at ease. I’m already ordering more cameras for the home as we have a new baby. I’ve been meaning to also get a new action camera & after seeing the easy setup & quality of the YI Dome, I look forward to trying the YI 4K Action Camera as well. Looks like I’m a new YI Fan.
Love the features so far
So I don't do reviews... But over all I'm please with the quality of the camera and the night feature is great! And as far as the app for what I think it's main intention was for its great, I like how you can tap to make the camera center somewhere, the overall video quality us good most of the time. The sound is a bunch ehh... Needs a little work there.. Seems the sound like a to cut in and out a lot and especially if you exit the app and come back. Its sometimes unrecoverable without force closing and starting over. Not horrible but is a definite bug. The sound also cracks and fades out like a battery dying in a speaker when this happens. I'd like to ask a request and see if this could be possible. Would you be able to make the sound run in the background like other apps do for music. This would make this app even more amazing as I'm trying to open use the camera as a baby monitor. And always have my phone on me. It would be really great and very very useful! Thanks in advance! Liking the hardware so far! Definitely see potential in the app!!
