It works The price is definitely right, but there are ragged edges. For starters, there is no native iPad landscape mode. Part of the onboarding process is to figure out what the new device is called in HK and in what room it was initially installed, then rename it and relocate it. Not a huge deal, just an annoyance.
They replaced the nice icon they had with this hideous ugly icon I now have to constantly look at on my home screen. The same update changed the large, easy to press with tiny controls. After adding another temperature sensor and trying to change the room here, the entire feature permanently disappeared. Randomly, error messages in the app will be in Chinese. Despite all that, I still give it four stars. Overall it does its job pretty well. This app has worked great with my new G3 camera.
The interface is very easy to use, and has plenty of features. Setting the camera up with HomeKit Secure Video worked flawlessly. One of my favorite features of the camera and app is the IR control for mini-splits and other appliances. My suggestion though with the IR control setting is to have the ability to change the temperature control from Celsius to Fahrenheit, or to have that change depending on region. It works with my Mirage, under the Midea configuration, but will change the display on the mini split to Celsius.
If the app developers can add that feature, it would be very appreciated! The following data may be collected and linked to your identity:. The following data may be collected but it is not linked to your identity:.

I think Wyze has spent more time than Apple has on the camera functionality, and the initial setup HomeKit part was somewhat annoying as I turned off certain notifications but HomeKit kept sending them anyway. But once it's all setup I haven't had any complaints. So it really comes down to how much do you want to integrate in to HomeKit, as you can almost buy 3 wyze cams for the cost of one of these.
So far I haven't had any issues but will run it a few more weeks then add another few. Update: everything below still stands over a year later. No issues. Working well. Nice product. Deducted 1 Star for the following reasons: 1 Price should be around max. Didn't get found when setting up using Apple Home App right out of the box. Had to use the included reset pin tool essentially a paperclip to push down the reset button for 5 seconds. Camera got fully immediately connected on my Wifi network and I was able to configure it fully via the Apple Home App.
Never installed the Aqara app. Nice and clear video with activity zones and activity type triggers setup via Apple Home App to stream and record, Video and Audio. Quick and responsive too. Afterwards you can go back to your normal wifi network you prefer - prob 5ghz. Will update further after I've used it for a while -- but so far am pleased - as unlike the Eufy 2K this product works out of the box with only the Apple Home App. Probably a 5 star product if they get their price down before Eufy fixes their product so it works without their Eufy App.
I removed it from HomeKit and set it back up as a new camera. It has been working great since then only using HomeKit. Bought this to use with HomeKit secure video. Worked for a couple of days then the recordings will not play. Also would get 5 or 6 notifications in a 2 second period when I walked in front of it. Not sure if the iCloud not playing recordings is an issue with apple or the camera, but either way it is not working. I then connected through the aquaria app, even though I preferred not to.
I wanted to troubleshoot if it was a HomeKit problem. It felt like they needed everything but my ss number to get going. Using the aquara app, it recorded everything in black and white. This is what happens when using night vision, even though I have it set up to switch automatically. When using just the HomeKit app, it recorded in color. I will be returning. Old review: Works well. Easy to setup using HomeKit.
Just put your phone on a 2. Setup HomeKit Secure Video to record. Use HomeKit facilities to control, configure, and view. Ditch all the complexities and stupidity of products on older platforms. Update after summer with reset. LED stays red no matter what you do reset button.
Less than 1 year usage. Top reviews from other countries. Translate all reviews to English. You can pair it dirrectly in the homekit app with a 2. It's from China and it is connecting to the wifi, so for people worrying about privacy, I can say that the camera still works as expected with homekit when you block its internet access.
It just need to be connected to the local network. I think it's probably the best homekit camera right now for the price, especially considering you don't need shady tird party app and internet access. Nightvision and image quality is good I don't expect a very good hd anyway, not for a security camera. Two way audio is a nice feature, but the speaker could be better. Works extremely will with Apple Homekit so far, no drops or disconnects.
Be mindful that you will need to install the Aqara app to apply the upgrades which is important. You can then remove the device from the Aqara app and connect directly with Apple Homekit. Also important to ensure your phone is on a 2. Picture quality is very good, motion detector works well, and integrates nicely with Apple Homekit.
Quality, packaging and design is very good, and given its price point seems like very good value. One person found this helpful. There are a few things I like about this camera: the magnetic base winner! I had it mounted in my garage, and as soon as the temperature dropped to around 5C it was cold outside , the "press to leave a message" button got stuck ON, and the thing kept asking you to leave a message, and it began recording.
The button operates normally at room temperature, with just a faint click, but as soon as the temperature drops, the plastic casing contracts and the button no longer functions normally sticks on. Secondly, in order to get the camera to flip the image and rotate it so that I could mount it upside down under my cabinets I had to install the app, create an account, and basically connect the camera feed to the Aqara servers. So, the camera works OK - took some real finagling to get it to work how I wanted to, and then had to delete the app to get it to work properly with HKSV.
And after all that, it stopped working in the garage. Next version - get rid of the "leave a message" button, and I might consider buying it again. This one's going back though. Report abuse. This is great for HomeKit. Pairs effortlessly and video quality is awesome. Night more is amazing.
Able to speak from the camera and hear the person on the other side. The speaker quality is not that great but that's ok! With a iCloud payment plan records video for later playback. More than I expected! Que demander de mieux!
