  • Worthless update

    By Maximegalon
    Forces a logout of the app and now always wants my location. Thanks for nothing.
  • Can’t access recordings...don’t waste your money

    By thekruser/4sqGuru
    It seems like the recording only works when it feels like working. It’s telling me that I have 24 hours of video uploaded, but there is nothing in the list. Try to go to the cloud storage, and it says there are no recorded videos. Yet again, someone was in my home and I received no notification, there is nothing recorded, and nothing in the cloud storage. Simply infuriating. This is the third time. I’m switching to a different service that may actually work.
  • Awesome, love it!

    This camera is wonderful and rotates as I desire.
  • Almost great...getting better

    By Guitarbrain
    I bought a 4-camera system and it installed and connected very easy. The instructions on connecting to the cloud service were not quite as clear and I mistakenly subscribed 3 times. Apple refunded the last 2 subscriptions and I was able to successfully connect all 4 cameras to one subscription for cloud service. Of course, cloud service is optional. After my 1st month service expired, I could not renew for a second month. Not sure why. Apple says all is fine on their and and they claimed it was a developer issue. I’ve sent several emails to the developer with no response. The cameras do work well and the picture and sound are great. I wish the iOS app would work as described. Still waiting to see if this gets worked out. Update: Subscription issue resolved. All cameras working as advertised. Most reliable wireless cameras I’ve used and the price is unbeatable. Suggestions the the developer include: 1) allow for landscape view by turning the phone to the right instead of only to the left. The volume buttons on the phone are on the left so landscape view to the left leaves the buttons inaccessible. 2) consider allowing for a 4-camera view on the screen. Perhaps this could be at least an option on the iPad. The YI app is not optimized for the iPad and looks very bad. Just my suggestions for future development.
  • Was broken into about 7mths ago

    I looked all over for an affordable security system looked on Amazon saw the ratings and the price was impressed since I've had this system I've had no more problems and this system is literally plug and leave it I highly recommend this system Mike L.

  • To Yi Developers

    I used this app back when Yi was just getting started. The app use to run so much faster. But what happened to it now? I used to get a message someone is at the door and i would click and it would instantly show what is on the camera in a matter of seconds. Now whenever I click on the message i have to click onto the camera and wait for it to load. It loads anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Which is terrible because what if i needed to catch a burglar within those moments?! Also frequently it doesn't even load! i need to quit the app after waiting a minute that nothing is happening.. AND RELOAD IT AGAIN?!!! you guys did add extra features to delete easier but man quality is going down the hill. I’m using a iphone 6 plus. My previous phone was an iphone 5s and It was much faster then. Thats 5 years ago that the app was at optimal efficiency. Please resolve and i’d happily change the stars to 5 stars.
