Really great


Great app. Have had much better experience with this than previous brands I have used. Easy to navigate. Camera setup is SO easy, and navigating the app is simple and works great 99% of the time.

They seem to be constantly developing the platform. I do wish there were more options for visualizing available cameras, like reordering in the list and using smaller thumbnails to be able to choose the one you want more quickly. Folders would be cool to create group “dashboards” like thumbnails in a folder so you could choose a folder as quickly move from camera to camera within that group. I would even like to see the grouping feature available on the computer app. Finally, I do hope you guys develop more options for local storage, like NVR or the ability to record to a local hard drive.

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.

Developer Response

Sorry for the inconvenience, SD card belongs to consumables, long-time use will cause bad block. Would you please change another SD card to try again? As for alert, if you turned on the 'Activity Detection Recording', the camera will only record moving pictures. Besides, please turn on the notification, then the camera will send you alerts.Any question, please contact support@yitechnology.com for help.



This app has always been very buggy and slow, the app update seems to have finally fixed that. Before when you would tap to view one of your cameras, it would take anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute to load. After today’s update, it loads instantly! Huge improvement. Great job on constantly updating the app. I will probably get some more Yi cameras now because of the update.
