Xiaomi has a great variety of products for home control, as explained in the article about the best Xiaomi products for the Smart Home of the future. Today we're going to focus on one of the products we cited in that article in passing but which is worth looking at in depth: Xiaomi IP cameras, very useful for any home as well as very cheap, especially if we buy them directly from AliExpress.

What are IP cameras and what are they for?

IP cameras can send audio and video signals over the Internet which allows you to visualize what is happening in your home anywhere in the world. Therefore, they can be used as a cheap security system or to control what happens in our home remotely. They can also be integrated with a motion detection device, so that through the corresponding application we can program warnings or start recording at the time that a suspicious presence is detected in our home.

In addition, compared to other security cameras such as CCTV (closed circuit) have many advantages: they are cheaper, can be controlled from anywhere in the world and it is very easy to expand the network of cameras throughout the home.

Xiaomi is one of the most well-known and popular brands in the world of Chinese technology, and all its products are characterized by excellent value for money. Xiaomi's IP cameras also meet this premise, as you can see if you take a quick look at their best-selling AliExpress IP cameras, which you can find in this search.

However, there are several models and not all are the same, so it is important that you keep reading, we will explain one by one its features so you can choose the one that best suits your needs and budget.

Xiaomi Yi security cameras: the most popular ones

The first cameras we are going to show you are the ones that have been on the market the longest, manufactured in collaboration with the manufacturer "Yi Technology". They are controlled by the YiSmart application available in the App Store or in the Play Store. However, this means that they cannot be combined with other "Smart Home" products from Xiaomi, such as its motion detector. There are 4 different IP cameras from Xiaomi Yi, and as I said all of them can be found in this AliExpress search.

They all have some common features (112 degree of vision, night vision, possibility of incorporating a micro SD card up to 32 GB ...) but each has a particularity. Let's talk about all of them differentiating between fixed cameras (Xiaomi Yi Home Camera) and those that allow a 360 degree vision (Xiaomi Yi Dome Camera).

Xiaomi Yi Home Camera

They are one of AliExpress' best-selling IP cameras, and their latest model is the Xiaomi Yi Home Camera 2, which is an evolution of one of the first IP cameras of this brand of Chinese origin, the Xiaomi Yi Home, which can still be bought here. In fact, the first model of this camera is still one of the best sellers, as its price is very affordable and has a fairly good resolution of 720p, plus integrated microphone and speaker, night vision thanks to its 8 IR leds at 940nm, motion detection, possibility of setting alerts in real time, noise detection, 4x digital zoom ... In short, if you are looking for a cheap and reliable way to control your home, we recommend this model.

However, the Xiaomi Yi Home Camera 2 costs almost twice as much although it improves in many aspects: better night vision (11 IR leds compared to 8 of the previous one) and its resolution reaches 1080p even with HDR color correction. It incorporates a state-of-the-art Ambarella S2LM processor that allows images to be transmitted fluently at maximum resolution over the Internet, and combined with the Panasonic MN3422X image sensor, the Xiaomi Yi Home 2 offers impressive image quality.

But the most interesting are its sensors, for example includes recognition of gestures so we can make the camera detect certain movements that activate the camera automatically, and even has a sensor that captures the cry of the baby and allows you to activate the camera instantly, so it can be used as a baby monitor. It can be found in this search.
