Got my cam now for about a week. Configuration was no problem, just make sure you follow instructions attached before you do anything and it will be fine. Quality of recording is great (and i haven’t even removed the protective foil from lenses). Both computer and phone apps are decent and do the job well. You can select the times in the day (1h intervals) when you want it to track movement, you can record on demand, live-view. It has a brilliant ir, sees everything in pitch black, very impressive. Very good solid materials (both camera and stand), long cable and good quality plug. The only gripe so far i noticed is the fact you can ‘switch it off’ but the only thing it does is not recording, showing live view or track motion. It still flickers ir on and off depending on the light conditions which is annoying and a bit worrying after a while.

Has given me peace of mind and it’s great that one can access the system from your mobile. Has given me peace of mind and it’s great that one can access the system from your mobile, tablet or pc. Very easy to install and and easy to set up when you want it to switch on to record any movement. I can honestly say that, in my opinion, this is the best home monitor system one can buy. The support has been great on a couple of occasions for me and invariably it is something simple and easily rectified as i found out very recently with the help from anthony at customer services. Here are the specifications for the Y-Cam EVO Indoor HD Wi-Fi Security Camera:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Free 7 days rolling cloud storage for 3 years
  • Easy step by step set up
  • Motion activated alerts and recordings
  • View your property from anywhere
  • Home network friendly

The first batch i had were faulty and initially it was disappointing, but the service i got from the company was second to none, absolutely brilliant, new batch came in and they replaced the 4 cameras straight away no quiblling at all. Very easy to set up and great to monitor via the ios app. The infra red is very powerful and overall very pleased. I have chose to hard wire thee of the cameras, just to take the stain off the wifi as i also have two outside home monitor hd pro cameras that are also very good. I have had two previous manufactures and not only have they been poor, but the astronomical charges for cloud storage for each camera was ridiculous. Home monitor offer a free 7 day cloud solution which is perfect. I can certain recommend them and after the service i got would not hesitate in endorsing this company. I went to the company for advice first and they suggested getting from them as i could have ended up with a faulty batch again from amazon, the fault was diagnosed as an in transit issue. In time amazon will obviously replace the damaged stock. The service from amazon was also excellent.

Bluetooth ver 4. 1 required to set up. The camera is excellent, works like a charm as advertised – with one small issue:to set up the camera you need to connect with bluetooth via a tablet or phone. This requires bluetooth ver 4. I was able to get connection eventually with my samsung galaxy 5 which has bluetooth ver 4 but it wasn’t very easyand may or may not work. Y-cam customer support know bout this and their suggestion is to borrow a suitable blue tooth device. This may not be as easy as they think for may people as the bluetooth version isn’t specified on most phones – you have to look it up on the web. Other than that it all works fine and i can see and control the camera remotely via my bt home hub 5.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Absolutely brilliant
  • Very happy so far
  • Excellent Wi Fi Camera.

Great internal cam with secure cloud storage. The camera is not crystal clear but works just fine. The night vision is also great. This camera is internal though so will not work pointed out of a window. In the day it will give decent images through glass but at night the infareds will just reflect and blind the lens. As an internal camera though it is great. Records motion and delivers live feeds. You do need a good strong wifi signal though if you are not hard wiring it in via ethernet cable. Overall a good buy and everything is stored on the cloud too so if someone broke in and took camera.

Worked straight out of the box. Worked straight out of the box. Antony from their support was incredibly helpful in resolving any queries i had. I have 2 of these cameras setup around the house and its perfect.

As yet i cannot recommend them. . At present i am still wondering whether they are worth the cost. They have started to disconnect from the internet and when you are not at home there is very little you can do to restart them. Considering the cost this is not acceptable and i may yet return them as unfit for purpose if they continue to do so. I will continue to persevere for another week to give them a chance. As yet i cannot recommend them.

Tiny camera but huge on quality and easy to use. Kicking ourselves that we didn’t buy one of these sooner. Great footage, wide angle, only records if there’s movement, plenty of storage, has audio too. Night mode works very well too. No pan or zoom but you don’t need this, even in a big room.

Very clear picture, sends a message every time there is a disturbance, easy to use and looks neat.

First class camera and first class service. These are excellent cameras and do exactly what they say and are very easy to set up. I enjoyed getting videos on my phone seconds after activation and felt reassured. And when i decided to give my camera to my daughter as she had a stalker, the company were most responsive to my question as to how to delete the camera from my account and attach it to hers.

Be aware free cloud is only for 3yrs. I have two of these cameras and they work ok. Be aware though that the free cloud recording is for three years only then you have to pay subscription fees or the camera just becomes live only which is useless. I only found this out recently as they don’t make this very clear and it’s in the small print on their website. Also i had issues with the first camera i bought which was brand new but not purchased directly from y-cam and they were difficult in replacing the faulty camera under warranty. So please also be aware of this if you don’t buy directly from them.

Y-cam – good products and great support. We bought an indoor and an outdoor camera direct from y-cam just over a year ago. The units are easy to set-up and have served our purposes very well. Recently we had a problem with the indoor camera losing connection. We contacted y-cam support (antony fernandez) who has been great in helping us resolve this issue. As a direct result of our conversations with antony, we ‘discussed’ our broadband speeds with our isp and, after some initial resistance, they investigated our line and discovered a fault. The line fault is now fixed, our internet upload and download speeds are better than ever and hey presto, the camera is working as expected once again. Antony also provided useful advice on camera settings which has improved the captures we are getting. We would definitely recommend y-cam.
