INSTALLATION & USE
Camera Xiaomi Yi IP is compatible with both Android smartphones (from Android 4.3 and above) and iOS (from iOS 6). However, to connect the smartphone to the camera, you have to install the app developed by Xiaomi specifically for this device.
In addition to online tracking, this application also allows you to take photos, video recordings and especially audio signal transmission: when you talk to the smartphone, it will emit on the other camera and vice versa, Xiaomi Yi will transmit audio from microphone to your phone instantly.
For example, you see a crook trying to break into the house, just shouting the alarm, the sound will be transmitted through the camera to warn the relatives as well as threaten the thief to run, very useful.
Besides, during the connection with Xiaomi Yi you can zoom to see the subject, max zoom is 4x. The weather is rainy, but the camera still has the acceptable brightness.
One plus point for Xiaomi Yi is the good image transfer speed, I use 3G still looks pretty fast and smooth. This camera also supports video recording directly to the memory card (up to 32GB) directly plugged into the device.

Unfortunately, on Xiaomi Yi IP, this camera is merely a security monitoring device and can not be connected to a PC as a videocall webcam.
