The YI Dome Camera is the 1080p model from Yi Technology.
What we like
The 1080p Yi Camera is mostly the same as 720p Yi camera, with some additional features:
- 1/2.7″ 2MP CMOS sensor
- Max frame rate is 15 fps vs. 20fps of the 720p Yi Dome camera
- Panorama capture
- Baby crying alert
The rest of the 1080p Yi Dome camera’s features are exactly the same as the 720p model are are listed below.
This network camera has a 112 degree wide-angle motorized lens and together with a 345° horizontal & 115° vertical rotation range, you get true 360° coverage of your home or office.
Night vision with 3 metres range is available by means of the eight 940nm wavelength LED.
Two-way audio is a rare feature and we are surprised to see this present in this budget IP camera. While most cameras support only turn-by-turn audio, the YI Dome camera has true 2-way audio.
Onto motion detection. While there are no advanced methods available here, there are some great features such as tracking moving objects, auto-cruise, and position bookmarks.
2.4GHz Wi-Fi is the camera’s sole connectivity option. Push alerts are supported but only via the Yi smartphone app.back to menu ↑
What we don’t like
While, this IP camera has only 720p resolution which is really not enough in our opinion.
Usage of the Yi cloud is compulsory and this is not great. You also cannot use the camera unless you use the smartphone app. On-board storage is available in the form of an 8 to 32 GB SD card slot.
