If you go to your camera feed, you will see a “cloud” icon button on the upper right of the screen. Now, this is only available to the cameras the supports it. At this time, the only home camera that is not supported is their 720p home camera which I think they will add on their next firmware update. Both dome cameras 1080p and 720p are supported.

You can go to your profile so that you can access the cloud storage menu. You will see a list of cameras if you have more than one, that are already subscribed to the cloud service or cameras that are supported and that you can add to your account.

They offer 2 services the Standard which it will only record when motion is detected and you can add up to 5 cameras in one subscription and they have the premium service which will record and upload your videos 24/7.

Now, both standard and premium services have 2 options, the 15 day or the 30 day loop. So, basically you can choose how long your videos will stay up on their cloud.

The Standard 15 day loop costs $9.99/month or 99 bucks annually. Their standard 30 day is $14.99/month or 149 every year. Their premium service is $9.99 per month or 99 dollars/year for 15 day loop and $19.99/month or $199 dollars/year for their 30 day loop.Now, remember their premium service is only for one camera and their standard service, you can add up to 5 cameras in one subscription.

Thanks for the review. I’ve got my first Yi Dome cam this week (720P version). Installation went well, Upgraded to latest firmware but… I don’t see any “Cloud storage menu” when i’m logged in the App. I don;’t see the cloud icon button in the upper right corner.

Any suggestions?


Pantelis Troiannos says:

I am having the same issue with melkkoe. Not sure what causes it. I tried contacting support but still waiting… Maybe it is a iOs issue maby?

JC Rafael says:

The Chinese version of Yi Cam, if you have a Xiaomi Router with USB, you can store the videos in your external hard disc or flash drive, for a week, 30 days or even the whole drive.
