    Just received a four-camera system (one day ahead of scheduled delivery by UPS) and had very few problems activating the first camera, with a 32mb card. Biggest difficulty was trying to download the Yi software and hook up to internet—which was not necessarily a fault of the manufacturers. The accompanying brochure (folder) could have been clearer in pointing out the various steps needed to get the system up and running—really couldn’t find most of the “settings” (adjustments and personal preferences) until got the camera and iPad keyboard software running, when I could manipulate sliders and push buttons right on my iPad. Perhaps the manufacturers could spend a few more development bucks to have a decent manual written and printed. (I just happen to know a writer/editor who could be approached about originating such a manual.). Can’t wait til I have the whole system up and running!

    Easy set up and the directions are straight forward and eat, first day having them so as far as the system I don’t have a rating.
  • Playback issu

    I've bought Sandisk micro SD, 32 GB, class 10. When i surfing on time line to check what happened in my absence, it comes back and starts playing from beginning of record not from the time i've chosen. I'm really frustrated.
  • Fails over time.

    I don’t know if it the cameras or the app but after some time it will stop working for no reason. I believe the last update has caused the cameras to no longer work in “live” mode. I have two cameras and switched through both to see if one had just gone bad but neither work now. More than likely it’s because I don’t use the paid cloud service so they made an update to make the free users cameras not work.
  • Notification Delay

    By Mrfootballskater
    Cameras & app have been functioning well for a few months. Lately, the motion detection has been notifying me late by at least half an hour to an hour. Needs to be fixed ASAP.
  • Awesome

    The easiest setup on any camera I have used. The picture is perfect
  • Very impressed. Highly recommended.

    I saw this camera system on Amazon, read the reviews, and even checked the reviews of the iOS app. I had high hopes. I wasn’t disappointed. I purchased a 4-camera system and I’ve had the cameras for about 4 weeks. This is a great camera system that is well executed. Quality cameras with great picture and sound and they also have an intercom feature to speak with others through the cameras. Both SD card and cloud storage options are a plus. Intuitive iOS app too. There’s even an option to share remote viewing with others through the app for one or more cameras. I had relied on D-Link cameras for years and was constantly frustrated with their inconsistency and poor application and frequent Relay Connection Errors making the cameras inaccessible. Those are going in the trash now. The Yi Camera System is a great package for an incredible price. Great value. Highly recommended. I will be purchasing more cameras. I would love to see cameras made for outdoor installation.
  • Great camera

    It was extremely easy to setup and all of the features are excellent. I’ve already recommended it to a friend.
  • Great but please fix connectivity

  • No iPad support

    I have been using the Yi Home Cameras for about a year. Great price and very easy to use. Quality of the cameras is great for the price. I think the native iPhone app is easy to use and works fine. However there needs to be an iPad specific version of the app.
