Date & Timestamp for Yi Dome U 2k Recordings

I have just bought two Yi Dome U 2k (YHS.5020) from Amazon and received it yesterday.
Firmware: – Up to date

After installing the Yi Home app (Version 6.2.5) on my iPhone and connecting to the Yi Dome U 2k, I have discovered that the downloaded snapshots and video (Live and SD) do not have an embedded date and timestamp. This camera is totally useless to me if I can’t have Date and Timestamp on the downloaded recordings.

Please confirm that this feature does or doesn’t exist for the Yi Dome U 2k (YHS.5020). If it doesn’t support Timestamp, I will immediately return to Amazon for a refund.

Hi, we would like to know the details of the problem you mentioned. Please reach out to us on the email listed below so our customer support can help you out:

Done but not receiving any confirmation on a very simple question:

Why is there NO date and time stamp in the downloaded photo and video recording from the SD card in my camera?

The expected response should either be:

  1. This feature exists in the Yi Dome U 2k and followed by instructions how to turn on Timestamp for the downloaded recorded video

  2. This feature is not supported. Please return the product to Amazon

This is Kami’s standard answer. NEVER has Kami given a serious answer to a question on this forum. All they do is refer to their customer service. That’s why this forum is practically worthless. At most, another forum member will have a solution to a problem. But nothing meaningful ever comes from Kami. People of Kami: please answer a question SUBSTANTIVELY! In this case it was a simple yes or no. And then every reader immediately knows whether it is normal that there is no date and time attached.

Seeing the unresponsiveness of the and the Yi staff in this forum, I have decided to return both my Yi Dome U 2k cams to Amazon and avoid investing in Yi products.
This concludes my brief any unpleasant experience as a Yi product customer.
