Got this camera yesterday, setup was okay once I realized they're asking for me to connect to my own wifi...

Should update firmware or not?

Can xiaofang/dafang do these?

1. motion real-time alert by laptop and/or smart phone, via wifi without internet).

2. motion record to the laptop hdd, via wifi without internet.

Or kindly suggest any wireless IP camera that can do above. Thank you.

Just some quick questions:-

1. When switched on, does the unit record video 24/7 or it will only record video when it detects movement (intruder) in the house?

2. When the video is recorded, will the video be uploaded onto a link and can be accessed at anytime by the user although the intruder has already smashed or destroyed the device to bits and pieces upon noticing the unit sitting nicely on a table?

1. you can select either one

By the way, I've heard a lot about the camera, and in terms of its technical characteristics and possibilities, it looks quite nice in terms of price of course.

Thanks for the response. As for item no. 2, I guess the disability to upload to Cloud is a major disadvantage for my purpose since the unit will be mainly used to record the activity of break-ins by unwelcome intruders and not for general monitoring of loved ones such as babies or old folks etc.

Are there any other (cheap) alternatives that are able to upload to Cloud with reasonably clear videos?

Sample Videos

At night with lights turned on. First only 360ΒΊ Panning was turned on. Then Motion Tracking was turned on for you to see the effect.
Please note that this is what you would see on your smartphone and not the saved recordings made by DaFang


Now with the lights off. DaFang is using its IR led to recording in the dark

Yes, you can use the same account to login MiHome, or you share the CCTV to your wife's Mi account. I'm using the same account for my iOS and Android. Both phones triggered simultaneously when motions detected.

Hi I m having difficulty to receive notification from mi home apps even motion alarm on and motion detected.
Pls advise

Thanks

Regarding the showing of right local time...
In the settings you must enable option "distortion correction"..that correct the time. I didn't notice any other difference.
