I have a couple of Yi cameras. I bought them all and put in large SD cards so that I would not require a cloud subscription. Now, it appears as if Yi has forced a firmware update, which cleared all my recorded videos, and now the only option is 6 seconds of motion detection.
Say it ain’t so?! Not only would this make the camera pretty much useless without a cloud subscription, but it’d be a grievous breach of trust from Yi!
I’m willing to ignore that it updated without my permission and erased my videos, but I’m going to be very angry if continuous recording is permanently removed.
