Better, but not quite.
It’s improving for sure but there are still a few small things to work on. For example, after a power outage, apparently there was some issue with my SD card and it required reformatting. I was trying to look back at some video and there were no 24:7 recordings, only online motion. I went into settings and found that it said “abnormality detected, format required” on my SD card, therefore it was not recording. Something like that should be a push notification so we know there is an issue with local recording. For the past few days, I had no clue it wasn’t recording to my 64GB local storage.
Great app, but unsure about update
Very annoying, I haven’t mentioned it earlier, but for a long time now, I’ve noticed the 6-10 second cloud recordings (I have set on motion) sometimes play an earlier clip and not the one it’s supposed to even though the thumbnail shows the correct video clip. Please Yi fix this!
Yi has been very responsive with updates and fixing issues, but with this latest update, I'm unsure it's needed.
If anything, the new layout takes up more room for each camera, taking up room to easily access each camera's (alerts), (settings), and (cloud). I liked how the home screen used to be more compact, to easily access more cameras (I have 6).
I'd rather have the cameras previewed on the home screen closer together so I don't have to scroll so much. But that's just me.
So easy to set up, great camera!
I admit, I hit a few of my own glitches in setting this up (trying to set up a 2nd iPhone), but nothing I can blame on the YIhome. Had it up and running in 20 minutes, camera is sharp and clear, voice ability to come over the YI. I am so happy with my purchase and it was a bargain at under $40. 6 stars if I could!
