    How to Install Mi Smart Security Camera App on PC


    Now you can live view your Mi Security Cameras directly on your Windows without the need of using an Android emulator (such as Bluetacks or Phoenix OS). The Official PC app which was earlier only available for the Chinese market is now translated into English and now have an option to choose the Mi Server for your cameras, However, this is still done with a simple code modification in the config file but it is by far the best option available to live view these cameras onto your PC. Earlier I also had written an article on this using the Chinese version but the only drawback with that was at that time that software only supported Chinese region cameras, this is fixed now and with a little modification you can select your own choice of server from the software. Continue reading below to know how to install it and what functions it incorporates.

    How to Live View & Manage Xiaomi Security Cameras on PC?

    As we have advanced, this application is only compatible with Windows (XP / 7 / 8 and 10) and although all the texts and menus are in Chinese, its interface is simple and intuitive.

    Download for your PC

    Head over to the below link to download the Mi Security Camera App for PC.

    Change Server Region

    Now when you open the installed app it will only able to stream cameras in China Mainland region now to adjust the app according to your region just follow the below steps:



    Head over to the installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\imilab\С°×ÖǼÒ) and open the file config.dll in any of your editor (Notepad). You will see two lines in the config.dll file first one is for language and another is machineCode which represents your server region. By default the machineCode is set to cn which is for China Mainland, you just need to replace the cn with the below-mentioned codes as per your region and save the file.

    cn – China Mainland
    sg – Middle East and Asia
    i2 – India
    de – Europe and UK
    us – North and South America

    Server Region in Mi Security Camera App

    Login with your Xiaomi Account

    Launch the software from your start menu after you have saved your chosen region in the config.dll file.

    Login with either your mobile number with OTP or use email id and password to access your cameras. Make sure that you have added the cameras in your Mi Home Mobile App.



    Once you logged in you can switch views to view multiple cameras, control audio, pause feed and more.

    HI there, i have created a config.dll file with the necessary properties. I’m residing in Singapore thus i set the [ “machineCode”: “sg” ] Now after the log in menu, i’m directed to Mi Account page rather than the camera menu. What will be the solution for the iMiLab camera app to work like expected?

    There ain’t no dll you idiot, what are you fucking about, you thief?

    Ben Samyn

    Hi,
    Thanks for redirecting me to this update.
    I downloaded and installed the application, upon checking the config.dll, all seems fine:

    “language”: 1,
    “machineCode”: “cn”

    But my Xiaomi Smart Camera Standard 2020 edition (MJSXJ02HL) doesn’t show up, while it does in the Mi Home app.

    What am I doing wrong? I’m connected to the same WiFi, no VPN.

    Thanks for the input!

    Ben Samyn

    Yes, my mi home app is set to mainland china, and the PC app to “cn”, so I’m guessing that’s mainland china?

    Johannes Erdfeld

    I don’t see any config.dll in the folder :/

    Yeah mate, Im from Vietnam, using the sg in region of config.dll and i have the exact problem like you do. Waiting for some help from the author. Just comment so you know you r not alone, friend.

    Arnold J

    Hello, yesterday I found another solution. I searched on Youtube for help and I got a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYeYlvX3alQ&t=235s) where a guy (probably) using an older version of this app. I downloaded the zip file from the link below that video(no need to install just run the IMICamera.exe). I tried once, it not worked, but, after I changed the config file and I turned off for 5 minute the firewall and it started to work.

    Please be kind and replay if you succeeded to run the app.

    Hi, mine able to detect the camera but it buffering till the program close itself. Please help.

    Pedro Saenz

    Program crashes when you put the mouse over your profile image.
    It’s related to changing the region to anything besides India or China.

    great malaysia

    exactly, same here. but overall is quite good. except:

    • program closed when mouse hover on profile photo
    • microphone always live no matter you watch live or replay.
    • lack on replay

    halo, pakai region China ya pak?

    TKX

    Isn’t there way to access this without third party accounts / servers? After all there is completely zero reason to send videos back to manufacturer. Tinfoil conversation aside, seriously, why oh why should I even bother with some accounts when all the harware is there.. These are miniature PCs / servers by themselves so.. I guess I have to take one apart myself but being very lazy person was thinking to ask and it amazes me that no-one has questioned the need to send your videos “to someone” and even register before that..

    Pedro Saenz

    It still has the issue where if you choose us or de and try to open the profile, the app crashes. Is there a way to change the language too?

    I make the log in and works but i can see my camera (Mi Home Security Camera 360° 1080P) the country is Greece & Windows 7
