    UPDATE: finally the camera works fine in Spain. After try more than 20 times I changed the steps I followed and it works, inclusive the camera pan and till.
    I am going to detail the steps I follow:

    1- Uninstall the app and reinstall the app from google play, version 4.2.5
    2-Set locale as China Mainland (if you do not see that, it is the first one with Chinese letters) and Language to English.
    3-Create a new account with this new setup (I do not know if is really necessary)
    4-Add the new camera as device. Select the the device with its name end with '1080'.
    5-Press the setup button about 10 second to make a camera full reset.
    6-Press the setup button again one, then confirm in app.
    7-Select the wifi network to connect the camera (in this case I was connected to one wifi and I connected the camera to a different Wifi, I do not know if this was the key).
    8-Show the QR code to camera and confirm at app,
    9-At this step I do not hear the Chinese record before 100%, the process complete without any voice message.
    10- The last step is assign the camera to a room.

    With this steps I have my Xiaomi Dafang runnin in Spain with full controll.

    I hope this will be helpfull.

    Regards.

    Hi fellow dutchies and EU neighbors :)

    I guess it is no rocket science to let this camera work in Europe. If you follow the steps above from cpocarlos you should get it to work. Still, I want to add some things I discovered yesterday.

    When I role back mihome to version 4.2.5 (app store) the camera worked and also the plugin. I knew version 4.3 wasn't working so I tried version 5. Strangely enough it is available and have a total different look. Maybe it's a beta or something. I found it here . So I installed version 5 (coming from the working 4.2.5) and I can look at the camera! Because mihome had a totally diffirent look you can see a preview of the camera images in some kind of popup. When you click on the popup the plugin is opening....unfortunately the plugin is not opening for the defang. All my other xiaomi devices (I have 4 :)) are working but not the defang. I guess if it is a beta there is no plugin yet or something? Maybe you guys can experiment with this ?

    So now I'm again on version 4.2.5 so I can watch en control the camera. BUT...there is bit of a problem. Version 4.2.5 has very pore English translation and there are a few screens that are totally abracadabra for me. So I REALLY hope there are some Chinese speaking guys or girls around here that can translate the setting screen. I made some screenshots of the different screens .....

    Would be realllly appreciated!

    Hello everyone

    Xiaomi dafang 1080P

    I struggle a bit with the chinese instructions but managed to install the software and pair the camera, but it times our all the time un the percentage page.

    it seems it's down to location (servers) that this product does not work properly

    I am UK based and have tried:

    - Latest "mihome" application release X
    - latest "mihome" application release + updates X
    - old "mihome" application from android store no updates X

    all the above using main china location and english language under settings.

    - Changing location to every country..X the 1080 is not even listed on most of them.

    Still not able to connect to the camera as times out.

    What am I missing ?? advise much appreciated.

    My camera was working. Poor, but works (mihome version: 4.2.5). Now after updating fimrmware to 5.2.1.200, Mihome does not connect to my dafang. I've tried a few mihome versions.
    Worst camera in the world!!!

    Hello everyone

    Finally got it working due to help and instructions previously found here...Note: I am on android phone(s)

    1. Install latest "mihome" version and update everything it tells you to including [camera firmware(s)]
    At this point after pairing the camera... it should be seen on your available devices and should show it's status(online).
    double tapping on the camera icon should also provide a preview image but nothing else(no camera control).
    3. Then uninstall mihome app, get the one from "play store" 4.2.5v <--do not update this one !

    - Always use china location (first on the list with chinese characters) language , default or English work fine for me.

    Just then, I had full control of it of the camera.

    Personally, I think the camera is a good product, the problem is down to servers and support outside the provided areas.

    Thank you

    Hi guys I was messing around and managed to get the camera connecting again even with the latest MiHome version.

    Just changed the language from English to Default and connected straight away!

    This is true.. Latest firmware and app version 5 are working just fine

    Assuming installs are from android play and firmware updates + plugins are from 'mihome' app.

    Question though... as this runs in china does someone knows :

    1. how much storage do we have in those servers (automatic recordings still growing)
    2. how private are those videos ??? :s

    Thanks

    Hello friends.

    Im getting kinda frustrated with this Dafang camera.
    Im on version 5.0.10 now i can connect to the dafang camera's i have 2 when im on my Wi-Fi.

    But when i try to connect from outside on mobile network or another Wi-Fi network connection failes.

    While my Yi smart camera always works.
    No mather where i am.

    Sometimes it does connect when im outside but mostly it does not work.

    I do get this message : connection time out retry after checking unobstructed.
    And then the camera start again with connecting 1/3

    Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

    I installed the application again and deleted the data. Before the first start, I lock the application, access the location. It's working. But it needs a good internet connection (LTE).

    I have the solution! 1. Install mi home 4.2.5. 2. chose Chinese server. 3. Insert SD in your camera. 4. push to the reset button until yellow led starts blinking. 5. After that you push another time in reset button. 6. Than do normal steps to connect your camera with your app mi home. 7. Once it is connected, update camera software and update your mi home app. 8. enjoy !
