Hi, I deleted the added camera in the app and just added it again - it's been working fine since. Although I have noticed whenever you unplug it from the power source, it breaks and you need to delete it and add it again.
Tried everything, no luck
Waited 24 hours
reinstalled the app from app store and selected China mainland
reset the camera by pushing reset for >10 seconds or so until a relay clicks. The camera reboots
resetted camera with a short push, it started talking
Everything worked then. I got a message to install new firmware 188.8.131.52, so I did that. After that, the camera was online somehow, but I could not get an image of it
I then have made the in-app update to a newer version and got a new firmware update to 184.108.40.206 for the camera. Since then, the camera does not connect as usual. :-(
Yes, it will work outdoors over mobile data (4G LTE for a more stable performance).
But you must know that live streaming with this camera will consume up to 80 kB/s (depends on the image quality).
The camera will only work with the Mi Home app and there is no IP configuration for this camera.
You may see on the picture that it will work on mobile data which means that you aren't using your home WiFi.
