I have 6 Yi home cameras 3 and since a firmware was pushed to my cameras…5 of them quit working…they are clicking continuously and yellow light keeps alternating between flashing and steady for few seconds…blue light does not show up.

I tried following directives on this forms but still the same experience…not sure how to get them all back to work but your guys’ update messed up my devices if they are not going to work anymore, I am expecting yi to replace them…if I ever can figure out a way to get hold of support looking that articles have dead links, phone support link shows…no phone number to call…emails are not being answered…pretty bad experience so far!

I am completely unable to locate firmware for Yi Home AI. I cannot connect to my router through the app. I have disabled the 5ghz band and have enabled the 2.4ghz band of the router, but that doesn’t seem to help at all. My Verizon Fior router is model G3100.

Can firmware on the 1080 home AI be updated?
