Been debating trying one of these for a while. Took a chance at €15. Will probably have forgotten about it by the time it arrives



Custom firmware available here: https://github.com/TheCrypt0/yi-hack-v4/releases

Edit: I should say that the coupon code above had expired for me but Aliexpress had a new user coupon that brought it down to €15. It was just one of the options to click at checkout.

Yeah the custom ROMs look interesting, i'll definitely be trying them out. I would be interested in the one that allows rtsp and auto upload to Google Drive. I have a Yi dashcam and am very happy with it so i'm hopeful these will be as reliable.

I believe anything over 24e, they can charge you.
As far as I can remember there is an admin fee, then vat of 21%. Should be all up on revenue

Also, following the link , given an option of Yi Home Camera (15 bucks)AND Yi Home Camera 3 (34 bucks)

Looks like the Yi Camera 3 has the baby detection one and not the other? Am i right in that?

Maybe not as some of the shipping options are in EU (Spain).

Spain came up as not available for me when I was buying. I'd normally go the route of within the EU whenever possible.

Slightly off-topic, but I don't have an issue paying VAT on things. I don't like the handling fee charged by the couriers though. If Revenue had an option to log my purchases from outside the EU and pre-pay the VAT, I'd probably do that with everything. Even if it was under the limit.

Hope you ordered separately. Anything over €26 or there abouts could get caught by customs.
