I have this light pulp cam and it work excellent though the Day but at nighttime it doesn’t work . I tried to get a replacement from the company and won’t respond back to me
We could see our video via the SD card but now they require to sign up for cloud to see the video, so basically all the cameras (different brands) and this Yi IOT app are useless.
They have now charged me $45 for their “premium cloud” and I STILL don’t have access to anything in my app. DONT MAKE THE MISTAKE I DID. Now apple is refusing my refund so I have to dispute it through the bank.
I have had these cameras for about 1.5 years and have not subscribed to premium. I was able to watch 6 second clips of any motion in my apartment. I have two cameras at different angles so I can keep an eye on my dog while I’m at work. I went to look at her this morning and I cannot view my 6 second clips anymore without upgrading to premium. I’m very disappointed with this, as I do not want to pay to fully have premium when I was perfectly fine with the live view and the 6 second motion recorded clips. I’m very disappointed in this change and will likely get different cameras that won’t make me have to pay a monthly/yearly fee to use. I am also going to leave a review on Amazon about my disappointment since that is where I purchased the cameras from. If you are planning on buying for the convenience and not the full premium service I would recommend that you do not purchase.
Have this cameras for 3 years, seems like I will have to buy something else. Cameras itself are great, good night mode, option to use SD card as local storage, good quality footage. Was easy to install. What I am upset about is software, sometimes application would not send any push notifications, it happened maybe 5 times in 3 years to me and resolved on its own in about a day or two. The most frustrating part is that with recent update, there is no ability to look 6 seconds videos anymore. It will instead show an ad for a cloud feature. Before the update, you could watch 6 seconds video and check the footage through SD storage. I don’t know if it’s a bug or it was done intentionally. My short term solution is simply to not update this app until I find a proper replacement for this cameras and luckily I didn’t updated it on my main phone. Since this feature is still working on older versions of the app, I suspecting either a bug in recent update or it was done intentionally. Either way, software is garbage and unfortunately I will have to throw this cameras away. Do not even try to buy their cloud services, because even if you do, it will still not work properly, as advertised, because app is laggy and garbage.
Don’t buy any of their products. They changed the app and you can view your camera records without a subscription now. Even your SD card recording. Not sure how they are getting away with taking away these features. The camera are junk and break also.
I got the camera to check up on dogs, what is going on? I can’t afford a subscription! Now I can’t even view the 6 second clips? Ridiculous!
On July 31, 2022, I purchased the $39.99 annual plan. Did not work. Then, on August 1, 2022, I wound up buying a one month $7.99 plan. I cancelled after one month, thinking that the annual plan would now be working. But, no, it is NOT working. Right now, I do not have an active working plan! PLEASE FIX THIS. PLEASE GET THE ANNUAL PLAN THAT I PAID FOR TO WORK, PLEASE. Once you straighten out this problem, I’ll give you a decent review!! Thank you.
This app is convenient for everyday use.
I have 3 tracking cameras and they are constantly tracking and moving and sending alerts. You shouldn’t have to pay for an app to desensitise your cameras. I have mine set as low as possible and a cricket farts and the cameras following it. I could probably give it five stars if you weren’t locked to the few settings that are given.
