Amazon.com: Customer reviews: YI 2pc Smart Security Camera 3, AI-Powered 1080p Home Camera System IP Cam with 24/7 Emergency Response, Human Detection, Sound Analystics, Night Vision, 2.4G Wi-Fi, App for Nanny Monitor
Original Review: Must PAY or there is NO playback from the SD card from the phone app. In another word, no PAY, no PLAY. Will consider a review if manufacturer remove the requirement of subscription.
Edit: Tech Support responded: "It is not necessary to have a cloud subscription if you have an SD card. You can view and play the videos recorded to the SD card by going to the camera's live view on the app and then dragging through the timeline. The timeline will have colored lines that represent the recorded videos."
I have used various home security cameras in the past and these yi cameras are on of the nicest ones at the price they are. They are easy to install the app works great, the picture quality is clear. They have night vision, human detection, wide 107 degree angle lens. The overall design is also pleasing and small.
I bought two of these WiFi cameras for remote monitoring. I've never installed this kind camera before and was concerned if I can get them setup properly. It turned out they are fantastic and so easy to setup! Within 15 minutes, both cameras are running properly and exceeded my expectations. You first need to download an App c and register and then connect to WiFi. all it takes for you to connect the camera to your WiFi network is to push the reset button for 2 seconds. It will connect automatically. Once it connected, it will announce "Camera is Ready for Use".
you can choose any place in your room to watch closely. The images are very clear. I have always wanted to be able to see my own home anywhere from my smart phone, this camera helped me to accomplish this. I am very happy. It worth mentioning that the cameras are well packaged and shipped on time. I received them without any damage. It is easy to use, and has 360 degree remote controlled viewing, it also has speaker and microphone Overall, it is a very good monitor camera. For the price that comes with two cameras, you can't beat the value. They are smart eyes and ears for your remote monitoring. Love these cameras. I find my self always on the app checking what’s going on in my house when I’m away. I also get to check in on my pets to see how they are. These cameras have many uses. I use for my pets, my kids , my house, and ect. There so light weight and can easily move around to different locations. I’ve attached the app picture this is when adding the first camera. I placed it in my sons room with lights off. And no changes made yet to the steering. As you can see the picture is clear. Next picture is when I already made changes to setting and place this outside. Clear picture during the day! As you can see I know when my packages arrive. I highly recommend these cameras.
I was looking for home wifi security camera for a while now and these came across my path. They are compatible to NEST cameras and products. Setup and installation was so simple, literally anyone can do this. Video quality is really good as well as the overall product. I highly recommend getting these over of any other brand. If you don't want to spend $300 on 1 NEST camera or even a Ring brand, These will definitely give you what you need and a realistic price and affordability.
These are nifty little cameras. Was relatively easy to set up, even for this 63 year old! Only works on 2G wifi--which I was clueless about. We have both 5G and 2G wifi, so I quickly figured out which one to use!!! I keep a tablet by my bed to see my mom at night, to see when she gets up (has a bed alarm) to make sure she is ok. Motion detection is really sensitive--I have that muted at night or it would go off all night, with every movement. The wide angle lens pretty much covers the entire room. I can leave for short trips to the store, knowing I am aware of all that's going on, and have peace of mind. Night vision is fabulous. Really nothing bad to say about this! Don't hesitate to buy!!!!
Very good product, Great app. Very easy to setup. My only disappointment in security cameras is the color white. The places it needs to sit to really get a good view and watch doors usually isn’t the most inconspicuous so why make the camera (or Stand) a bright white that says “HERE I am. Hurry up and shut me down so you dont get caught”, it would be excellent if all components were flat black (stand and cords). And what would absolutely make it perfect if there was a battery pack that could make it last about 8-10 hours while I’m at work.
So I actually own a lot of home cameras for the sake of finding the perfect one for my home. This set of 2 camera is great. It is sleek and slim making it easy to maneuver and put anywhere in the house. It fits in anywhere and its so modern! Everyone thinks its a super expensive camera because of how high tech it is.
Absolutely love these cameras. I’ve had them about a week now. Super easy to install and app is very easy to use. I love that you can turn off the status light. The sound is very clear as well when I turn on microphone to listen in on the room I’m watching. I check the cameras several times a day while I’m at work and never have an issue with it streaming live. I bought SD memory cards for each camera. So I can scroll back in time and watch playback on my phone anytime I want. Love it!
Set up was a breeze. Just download the app, plug in the camera, set up the app with your wifi, and put the QR code in front of the camera. The audio prompts when it's done, and you just set it wherever you have wifi service. App is pretty straightforward. You do have to pay for the service if you want cloud storage, but you can always put a micro-sd card in and have access to the footage through the app.
Have 3 of these now and I love them. Super easy to set up. Great picture. I have no complaints except the picture goes black and white occasionally. I think that's due to my crappy internet though and not the cameras. I also wish it had a fixed cord and longer power cord. My kids want to unplug these so they can take the wall charger. A fixed plug would have been better
