    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.

    How to Control and View Xiaomi Security Camera from 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.

    Above all, it will allow you to Live View your Mi 1080p Basic and Mi 1080p 360 Security Cameras.

    The Software currently supports only the Windows Operating system, It is not compatible with macOS, and other Linux OS.

    Among the functions of this software we highlight:

    • Ability to adjust the camera, such as video quality, sleep, status lights, etc.
    • Support for detection configuration, including record management.
    • Built-in functions for camera playback, pause, forward and rewind recorded videos, turn sound on and off, etc.
    • Possibility of operating several cameras at the same time, dividing the screen into 1, 4 or 9 windows.
    • Possibility to move the orientation of compatible cameras.

    Xiaomi Mi Camera Software Installation Method

    If you want to have this application on your PC, follow the below steps:

    Time needed: 20 minutes.

    1. Download the latest Mi Camera exe

      Download the latest available version ” MiCamera-1.0.12060.2.exe ” from our link and double click to run. Mind you, there are links in other forums that are corrupt and do not work.

      Download Mi Security Camera V.1.0.12060.2

    2. Follow Installation Instructions

      Do not be scared by strange characters. Just choose the installation location of the software, by default in “ C: \ program files (x86) \ Xiaomi \ MiCamera ” and click continue (lower left button).How to Live View Mi Security Camera on Your Computer 2

    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

    Mi Camera Portable Version

    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.

    Download Mi Security Camera Portable

    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.

    not working, do i need to downgrade camera firmware

    RJ Logg

    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?

    Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
