130 Degree Wide Angle View


The 130-degree wide-angle in the new camera means that every corner of the home will be covered while broadcasting live videos using the Yi Home Camera app.

The Yi Home Camera 2 doesn’t just look good cosmetically and shoots great videos. The device is powered with a world-class master processor from Ambarella which would help in faster video processing to the respective app.
