Anyone tried the newer 1080p version priced at 25 usd?
Can it still work outside china?

Get the international one, less headache (a bit more expensive obviously)
Even hackers are still working out how to hack the camera to allow usage outside china
Or you could test if it still works with china vpn at your home

I've replaced the XiaoYi with XiaoFang, and XiaoFang is smaller, more adjustable, 1080P and no restriction on firmware updates. Angle is wider too. Only gripe is the colour looks darker.

You can even buy accompanying sticker for XiaoFang, and now my camera looks like Mike from Monster Inc, great for a kid's room.

Some of the features I liked from XiaoYi is missing from XiaoFang,

1.) Fast connection to XiaoYi but I've encountered authentication loop when connecting to XiaoFang, must restart the camera before it will work again, very inconvenient.

2.) XiaoYi records motion only video while XiaoFang is continous recording, I like the interface of XiaoYi, can't say the same for XiaoFang.

3.) Video seems to be more crisp for XiaoYi even though its only 720p and XiaoFang is 1080!

1) For me, its the total opposite in regards to the connection issue. I always encounter problems/lag when connecting to XiaoYi, but XiaoFang was fine. Guess this is due to our router instead of the camera. Or might be because my XiaoYi is not the local set?

2) Sorry, but what's the difference?

3) I agree with this. XiaoYi has better picture quality and colours. Resolution is not everything!

Xiaoyi is record based on motion detected. Xiaofang is continuous record, so its very hard to find specify point in the recording with motion. Not sure but for me, the record based on motion makes more sense.. Continuous record makes playback so troublesome.

I was online and saw stolen footages of home surveillance cams (lol), but I started wondering if my set up is compromised too.

When I bought my first Xiaoyi home cam, I access it via the app. Later I found out, with rtsp enabled, I can use VLC to watch too. Nice. Because I can use rtsp, I have since set up my Synology NAS's Surveillance Station to manage both my xiaoyi cams. Very cool.

My xiaoyi app needs PIN to access, while my Synology needs 2FA to access.

So that leaves VLC (and other similar rtsp capable apps) which does not need any password to access.

A simple url rtsp://192.168.1.XXX:554/ch0_1.h264 is all it takes. The cam does not ask for access password. OMG. Why like that? It can't be right. Or am I worrying too much? Could anyone outside my home network use "VLC" to watch me sleeping in my bedroom?
Hi, I recently bought a synology nas and wanted to try the surveillance thingy. Do you solely save the footages on your nas and not use the memory card on the ip cam? The nas connect to the ipcam using rtsp so does that mean I dont need to do port forwarding for the ipcam? I can just connect to my nas to view it? Also, if ipcam is connected to nas means it'll run 24/7 without sleep? FYI, i have 5 cams running. I'm still figuring out how all this work. Cheers

I have both xiaoyi and xiaofang as well.

I am plagued by the problem where I have to restart xiaofang often or else there is no footage. This is similar to what was earlier described as an authentication loop.

Any solution?
