My review for YI Dome Camera

What is the Yi Dome Camera?

Yi Dome security camera is a 3600 complete coverage smart home system. Offering bidirectional rotation which supports 3450 and 1150 horizontal and vertical rotation range, respectively, plus a 1120 wide-angle lens, Yi Dome Camera captures every scene, with near zero blindspots. It captures complete Panoramic scenes in 720 HD, and automatically returns to “Aut0-masking” mode, to ensure that recording occurs only by your permission.

It also comes with an easy to use incorporated app with which you can monitor and control the camera. The Yi app also allows you to take pictures, record videos and direct cam view, and is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Security Features

With its 3600 viewing angle, Yi cam keeps every spot covered in your home. An impressive 2-way live video system allows you keep in touch with any in the house. This 2-way video system is pre-fitted with a responsive and advanced microphone, with a built in anti-noise filter, which allows a clear 2-way audio experience. This allows you to keep in touch with those present in the home, in your absence.

The intuitive camera navigation system detects moving objects, captures their movement and tracks their movement trajectory, using a 10-second Motion tracking algorithm. A direct notification is sent to the Yi Home app as a form of alarm security, keeping you updated with real time activities while you are out. Its advanced night vision feature allows the extension of viewing distance by up to 3 meters, thanks to 8 integrated 940nm infrared LEDs.

The ability to capture images and record videos provides an extra layer of protection, while also useful for recording moments you do not want to forget in a hurry. Further protection is provided by the ability to bookmark up to 8 favorite (or high-risk positions), and return to them at the tap of a button. Going on “Auto-Cruise” mode allows you to survey the area 3600 horizontally.

Other impressive features include storage support of 4 – 32GB micro SD card, and a soon to be included YI cloud service for cloud storage.
