Kami Wire-Free Camera Kit - 6mo free cloud offer

I purchased two of these kits, which include the Kami Wire-Free Camera, Base Station, and batteries with charger based on the offer of 6 months free cloud storage. However, after onboarding one of the cameras, I only see the standard cloud offerings when I try to activate cloud storage.

How to I enable the free 6 months of cloud storage through the Kami Home app?

How do I activate the 6 month free service if I skipped activation during the setup process?

Should I remove the camera and base station and start the setup process over again to see the “Activate Yi Cloud Service” option?

It seems your app doesn’t allow the user to enable 6 months free if you skip the activate step at the very beginning. Since I generally don’t sign up for services that cost money immediately, this seems like a big issue with your app, as it’s not obvious that you must click the activate option in order to enable 6 months free. Is there some alternate method to enable the 6 months?

If you missed the opportunity to claim your Free Cloud after pairing your camera or were not presented with the option to claim included Free Cloud please contact support@yitechnology.com with proof of purchase and they will assist you. Once this step is passed in the app, there is no way within the app to get back to it.
