Alert Notifications in the YI/Kami app
You’ll receive an alert notification in the app when your camera detects movement (Motion Detection/Human Detection). In order to receive the alerts, you will need to enable motion detection in Smart Detection and enable Video and Photos in Notifications.

Settings Smart Detection
1. First, go to the home screen and click on the camera.
2. Click on Settings in the bottom right corner.
3. At the bottom make sure Video and Photos are enabled under Notifications.
4. Click on Settings under Smart Detection.

The alert videos are limited to 6-second clips for a 7-day loop (available for only 7 days, on the 8th day the video from the 2nd day is still available but is removed on the 9th). The 6-second 7-day loop is a free cloud service available on all YI/Kami cameras.
If the camera has an active cloud subscription or is using a micro SD card (local storage), you can view longer videos by selecting the Complete Clip at the end of each clip.
