  • Latest Updates Causing “Jumping” to Motion Alerts

    By Pjvander
    The last two or so updates have made this app unusable! As others have mentioned, if this is a new “feature”, please remove it! Or, give the option to disable. When viewing playback on one camera, the app will automatically “jump” to a different camera that may have received a motion alert. Incredibly frustrating with 5 cameras!!! PLEASE FIX THIS AND REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS METHOD OF OPERATION!!!!
  • Random Jumping to Feeds

    By KingNO
    What gives? The last release now has a weird glitch where when I’m using the app, if any camera detects motion, it immediately switches to that recorded motion clip without any intervention on my end. It’s frustrating to say the least and has made the app substantially less user friendly. Please change it back to not switch to any motion feed as they come in. Or at least allow us to toggle off that “feature”.
  • Awesome!

    These cameras are amazing, especially for the price. The picture comes in super clear, and the night vision works well. You can turn them off and on from the app, and take videos or screen shots from your phone as well. I can yell at my dogs from work. 😆 You don’t have to use an SD card unless you want to record video.
  • Someone should be fired!

    Whoever thought that adding the “feature” of switching automatically from camera to camera when motion is detected without a way for the user to turn this off does not understand how people use this app and Yi’s cameras. When I open the app and open a specific camera to view I expect that I can continue to view that camera until I decide I don’t want to any longer. Instead, with the latest updates, when I open the app and open a specific camera to view I get to view my desired camera for a few seconds before a leaf blows by another camera so the app automatically switches to the leaf blowing camera, takes 30 seconds to connect, replays the leaf blowing, then leaves me looking at the leaf blowing camera until I have to manually switch back to the camera I wanted to view in the first place. This cycle continues over and over until I close the app in frustration and open Amazon to window shop for cameras by manufacturers other than Yi that would not be so frustrating. The only reason I haven’t actually bought something else yet is that I have 7 Yi cameras set up and I’m hopeful the Yi Home app developers realize what a horrible “feature” they’ve forced down their user’s throats and correct it before Yi camera sales start to plummet. Because if it’s not fixed soon I’ll be leaving negative reviews for the cameras next as they are useless without a decent app to view them on.
  • Crash

    Crashes all the time while I’m not using WiFI. Is this app only support wifi? Can’t even see the camera when I’m outside using my LTE .
  • Great app

    Love the app and camera for security. Would really like to have a louder notification or at least the option to select a loud notification. When I get notifications while we're asleep I never hear them but wake up to find that there were incidents. Could have taken immediate action if it would have woke me up.
  • Broken app

    By Blakenson
    I use this as a baby monitor for my son, but recent update causes it to randomly jump to different cameras or clips in my house. Please fix ASAP.
  • Most recent version needs fixing. Many errors

    By davidk86
    I’ve been using this app as well as the cameras for years and recently there was an update and it has reduced the usability. You click on one camera and on its own it will go to another camera and then open that camera’s most recent alert. It’s really frustrating. Also would love to have a way to speed up the video, a fast forward feature. Hopefully this version gets fixed soon
  • Better

    The cloud wasn’t working for a while but it seems to be back up. Great cloud access and viewing now that everything is working.
  • Terrible app

    By AA31288
    The camera works well enough and so does the app... when it actually works. It can take up to twenty minutes for me to turn on the camera due to all the thinking/loading the app does when I go to settings. Doesn’t matter if I’m on WiFi or have strong cell service. Exiting out or redownloading hasn’t worked either. Not really worth it if half the product doesn’t work consistently.
