    How to Live View Mi Security Camera on Your Computer

    One of the strengths that differentiate the cameras of the manufacturer Yi from those of Xiaomi (and collaborators) is the existence of official software for Windows and Mac. A tool with which you can live view your security cameras on your computer even if you are in a remote location.

    Until now, the only alternative we had to manage Xiaomi Mi Security cameras was to install the Mi Home app through an Android emulator (such as Bluetacks or Phoenix OS). However, it was not a stable solution, at least in my case.

    But we have good news:

    There is an application developed by Xiaomi for Windows (For Chinese Market) through which you can access your Mi Security Cameras from PC

    And as we have already tried it, I request you to continue reading to know how to install it and what functions it incorporates.

    Note: Updated version of this application is available with the option to select server region and language, Head over to the below link.

    3. Run the Application

    The Mi Camera application works with our Mi Home account. So we just have to enter the username and password in the main window. Make sure that you are on the Chinese Mainland Server and all your devices on the same server as the app currently supports only the devices that are linked on the Chinese Mainland server.

    Then we will click on the green button to access the interface and show us the cameras; as long as we have them previously linked to the Chinese server

    There is a portable version also available for this software that can be run directly from USB drive on any computer. The version is a mere 66 MB in size and is very easy to use.

    To do this, download the Mi Camera file from our link, unzip it into a pen drive and double click on the “MiCamera” icon to execute it.

    It only remains for Xiaomi to open the range of compatible cameras and edit this amazing piece of software by adding at least English. This would solve one of the most requested requests by users of Mi Security Camera. Have a PC application that allows us to have control of our cameras.

    Thanks for the article, sadly I can’t get it to work. I’ve tried everything, including several different programs that claim to be able to view the camera on PC. The app is set to China Mainland, and I was able to successfully log-in to my Xiao Mi account using the desktop program. The ID’s match, even down to the same name and icon. But while the Xiao Mi camera app displays the camera image just fine, the desktop software says no camera found. I can’t figure out why. Any ideas?

    Thanks for uploading this. However, this is a mediafire upload, where did you find the original? I tried Googling but nothing comes up.
    I’d like to check the official page to have more info as well as for updates.


    PS: Human verification ok, but when posting comment it says ‘captcha invalid’ when using email. Had to use Facebook to comment.
