Hi friends,

Recently we acquired the Xiaomi Yi Home Camera.

The package is secure, stylish and pretty.


  • I can always hear and see what’s going on in my house when I’m out. Also, I can monitor it through the Internet and via an app. Mobile Internet is enough for that, the picture is crystal-clear.

  • If you insert a SD card, you can also customize the settings according to your preferences and record videos non-stop or use the motion detection technology.

  • Turn on the notifications on your phone when the motion detection mode is on.

  • You can monitor what’s happening inside your house through a few phones, but control is only possible via only one phone.

  • There is a non-invasive night vision that works really well.

  • If you need to get in touch with some family member that is at home, but doesn’t have a phone at hand, you can press the ‘speak’ button and he/she will hear you from the camera very loudly. He/she can answer you to the camera and you’ll be able to hear it as well. This function helped me a few times.

  • The camera is compact, so you can put it anywhere and nobody will notice.


  • Installation is a long process.

  • If you hang it to the wall, you’ll need a USB cable. However, it all depends on the disposition of a socket you are going to plug your camera in.

  • Some errors during recording may occur. Sometimes the camera stops recording. When I take it out of the socket and plug in again, it works alright. The reason is probably power interruptions or the product is defective for me.

The indoor and outdoor photos:

My verdict:

I’m really glad I purchased this stuff. The only reservation I have about it is the errors while recording that may sometimes occur. Therefore I give it 4 stars.
