The YI Dome Camera U makes us think a little of R2-D2. It’s cute and looks like the type of tech you can count on to stay in touch with kids and pets when you can’t be at home. The anti-noise filter makes it easy to listen for baby’s cries or chat with kids about homework after school. You can even tell Rover to get off the sofa.

Its biggest improvement over the original YI Dome Camera is a physical privacy shutter you can close to prevent the camera from recording when you want more privacy in a space.

Another great feature of this wireless security camera is unlimited free cloud storage. But watch out if you’re an Android user—there are several reported issues with the Android app.

YI Home Camera 3 Cloud Subscription Plans

YI’s cloud storage plans vary depending on where you look. Why? We have no idea, but both the standard and premium plans listed on YI’s website are generally less expensive than those in the app, so we’ve included them here. The app includes a basic plan that’s only $3.99 a month and not offered on the website, so be sure to shop both the app and the website to find a plan that works for you.

YI’s monthly cloud storage fees are about the same price as Nest’s, but Nest offers continuous video recording with all of its plans. By comparison, Wyze Cam Pan gives you free 14-day rolling cloud storage for all motion- or sound-detected events.

  • AI-Based Alerts & Face detection: Equipped with the latest Edge Computing enabled chip, the YI Dome Camera U can detect human figures, reducing “false alarms” caused by insects or pets. Additionally, you can review all the faces that appear in your clips directly in the YI Home App, thanks to Face Detection.
  • Complete coverage with 360° Tracking: The YI Dome Camera U features direction control, bookmarkable locations, and motion tracking, allowing this camera to track up to 340° horizontally & 90° vertically to create 360° coverage.
  • Clear Color Night Vision: Seely clearly at night and record clips in 1080p. Thanks to an array of IR lights, the YI Dome Camera U provides bright images even during the darkest night.
  • Secure and Private: The YI Dome Camera U was made with privacy in mind. Simply flip the lid of the camera to turn on “Sleep Mode” whenever you want to disable the camera’s ability to record and set a PIN Code in the YI Home APP for an extra layer of protection. Wide operating temperature range (between -10º to 50°C) to suit any conditions.
  • Keep Your Memories Stored in the Cloud: Store your alerts and recordings within our optional YI Cloud service. Unlike Micro SD cards that can be physically damaged and have storage limits, YI Cloud provides you with 24/7 uninterrupted video recordings up to 30 days of footage protection from theft or damage.
