You purchased Chinese products for Mainland only use.. It even states so on the packaging.
Yes I know, but it worked flawlessly for about 9 months until recent updates of the Mi Home app. There was not any firmware update containing a Country ban like with the Yi Ants camera.
Furthermore, the very strange thing is that this camera is a gateway and many devices are connected to it (various sensors) and they all work fine even from outside the camera wifi network. Only the camera cannot be viewed...
Any other experiencing the same issue?

yes but the fact is you purchased a product clearly labeled for MAINLAND CHINA ONLY so that risk was yours to take.

yes you are right, but I have 20+ devices for Mainland China only and all of them work just fine. Anyway this device was never released outside China so I guess that all others who bought it and posted in this thread should face my same problem now, correct?

Yea pretty much... since you have no recourse with the product via Xiaomi you are kind of stuck.

I’m new to here. Could somebody help with the connection time out issue.
I am living in Toronto Canada
Bought a Xiaomi Dafang camera
Installed MiHome with Mainland China setting
And I’m using iPhone 8 Plus
MiHome ver: v4.8.6
Firmware ver: 5.5.1.353
Installation and setup of this camera through MiHome has no issue.
The issue is when I tried both WiFi or data. It says connection time out as follow;

I tried resetting the camera, uninstalling and reinstalling the MiHome app. Nothing seems work.

Probably because your connection to the Chinese servers cannot be made.
