Can I use my camera to monitor out of my window?
We recommend testing the setup of your camera to find the right placement.
In a dark environment, your YI Home Camera will automatically switch to night vision mode. If your camera is facing out of a window, the window may reflect the (IR) infrared light and trigger false alert notifications.
If you are receiving false notifications, we recommend turning off the IR light or moving your camera to another location. To turn off the IR light, open YI Home App > select Settings > Select Camera Settings > toggle Night Vision IR Light off.
Note: Your YI Home Camera is not engineered for outdoor use. The camera may get damaged from heat or moisture even when placed under a cover.
