Cove Partnership with YI
Perhaps the best feature Yi offers is its robust software. They are an industry leader, so we have partnered with Yi Technology to provide exceptional DIY (Do It Yourself) camera options.
- Do you want to view footage via your smartphone?
- Are you wanting to customize video recording, notification alerts and more?
Download Yi Home (available on Android and IOS). Yi has even developed a desktop computer client, which allows your computer screen to act as a Real-Time Surveillance Monitor! Yi Home is loaded with features and their hardware brings enhanced safety and productivity.
We currently provide each customer with a free Indoor Yi 1080p Home Camera, this does require WIFI, the key features are:
- High definition image quality
- Night vision
- Motion detection
- Baby crying detection
- Two-way audio
- Mobile and PC app
- 7 day Yi Cloud Storage
- Lens distortion correction
- Customizable field of view for notifications alerts
The camera also allows you to use a microSD card to store footage, we recommend that it not exceed 32 GB of storage.
You can add additional cameras to your cart during your initial purchase. Please note cameras are not eligible to be included in our Economy plan balance, this means you will have to pay for additional cameras at checkout. You can also contact Support to order additional cameras.
A major reason we partnered with Yi is that they do not require a subscription to view footage on their app, which can be seen live anytime. Of course, you can subscribe to Yi and receive additional cloud storage. This will allow you to view recordings from previous days going back up to two months depending on your subscription.
If you are having trouble with your Yi camera, you will need to reach out to their Support team.
