YI Technology recommend having no more than 12 cameras connected to single Wi-Fi network to ensure the best connection.
Typically, a home camera is placed in the corner of a room where it can optimize the view angle. YI Technology recommend having at least two cameras to fully cover a large space, such as a living room. To completely monitor your home, users can add cameras in every room for a full home monitoring system.
The YI Home camera is only compatible on a 2.4GHz band network. 5GHz networks are not supported.
All routers have a 2.4GHz band network available and most routers are dual-band, meaning they have both a 2.4GHz and 5Ghz band network. Many routers have both bands available simultaneously, meaning you can see two network names for your router. Check your Wi-Fi settings to see if you have 2 networks available. The 5GHz network name will typically end in a 5, while the 2.4GHz network might end in 2 but it may not be indicated in the name.
If you need additional help, contact your internet service provider for assistance on connecting to your 2.4GHz band network.
