Requires insane permissions, plus creating a mi account, plus you have to sign into gmail or facebook through their app (put in your password!). How can I tell that it's not phishing? INSANE. I just bought 4 lightbulbs and I can't use them without all these restrictions. I just want to turn on a light bulb, why do you require my personal accounts? 60 bucks down the drain. :(
It's really useless. I've bought three cameras (Xiaomi fang smart camera), but the app will not play any recording I've set up, and the recording the ones camera makes on its own. So I'm probably watched by Chinese, but cannot see the recordings by myself. I can only watch camera in real time(not too real, two seconds delay) but it takes about a minute to start an you have to use the camera own hotspot so you don't have Internet at that time and if you need to check an other camera, you need to connect to its hotspot and wait an other minute for the camera to connect. Do no surveillance with the fang smart camera(and not really that smart). As I said, useless.
It's work for first use. I can configure my mi wifi repeater but after sever months, I reset my repeater, mi home app cannot even find device.
Not compatible in India Country please setup server for India and need Cloud storage option also for xiaomi xiaofang please upgrade soon. Last firmware update getting so many bugs.
Unable to view historical date even though I am logged into mi account. I can see the device pm2. 5 but nothing else?
App is poorly optimized. too much permission needed. both security and privacy concerns issues. Escalated to Google review team for checks
