  • Camera jumps

    Please fix the camera jumping to different camera!!!!
  • Updates ruined it!!

    By emartine2087
    Every since all the recent updates. Have a hard time accessing cameras. Take forever to load live feeds and when it does load, the feeds glitch constantly. Cameras worked perfectly until the updates ruined it. Was going to purchase more but now I’ll throw these out and go elsewhere.
  • YI controlling camera views

    By iPhoneUserApple
    Selling our video streams to Facebook? Facebook ads next? Response to canned developer reply: Cameras are being controlled by app jumping screens! Obviously you are not reading reviews here or on Twitter just responding with a canned server excuse! Camera view is jumping to different cameras as soon as motion is detected by another camera without my control! Why? FIX YOUR APP! Won’t be buying more YI products! Ongoing server down issue for most of 2019! Pay to back up cameras to cloud? You’ve got to be kidding? You can’t back up your own servers before launching yet another failed update! Why trust YI cloud! These were once the best home cameras now no longer reliable seems they can’t pay the bill to keep servers up now it’s the app AND the servers! Roll it back six months before you ruined it. They just dumped a lot of camera inventory at Home Depot YI must be going out of business...
  • Best option for the price

    By Angaleza
    Couldn’t be happier with all features and how easy it was to set up and use. Especially for the price
  • App used to be good but not now

    By Sunnzray
    UPDATE...I have never been so frustrated with an app before. I have continued to email and it never gets fixed. When trying to watch something recorded or live it continues to jump to another camera if motion is sensed. FIX THIS!!!!!!!! I used to never have problems with this app but now after the last two updates when watching a live feed or a playback on my app, if any one of my cameras picks up motion it closes out that video flips over to the camera motion was picked up and this happens continuously. Please fix! I have sent many emails and even a video example of this happening but it did not get fixed in the last update.

    It was simple to set up and so far has been a great product to purchase. 👍🏽
  • Failure

    By dont care aa
    Whenever I travel for work the cameras fail to produce on time video. Almost as soon as I leave they fail to produce anything. You can’t restart them remotely. They become unuseable. What is their purpose? Why buy Yi cameras if they don’t work when away from home. I can use the app to connect and see that the camera is connectable and ping able but still does not produce video.
  • Update forces clips to interrupt camera

    By Zoftware
    Latest Yi Cam software update causes a huge glitch. When watching a live camera feed any new motion detection clip will immediately interrupt the current stream and cut to motion clip regardless if you want to watch it or not. There seems to be no option to turn this new ‘feature’ off. This completely ruins the experience of watching the live camera and makes the entire system unusable. This exact issue has also happened on a colleagues system as well as mine and appears, from reviews, to be happening to multiple users. Yi has not fixed this yet and it appears they are asking customers to file a report with Yi instead of taking action and fixing their faulty software.
