Seamless integration

Whichever Xiaomi smart camera you chooe, the Xiaomi Home App is your central hub which covers all aspects of their usage.

The app allows you to view your camera feeds, control your cameras, and communicate through each camera’s two-way intercom functionality.

You can also use this app to store your video footage—either in the cloud or on a microSD card in each camera’s dedicated slot.

Xiaomi smart camera owners can integrate their products into their existing smart home ecosystem, too.

For example: you can link your indoor cameras to a Xiaomi Mi Smart Clock and display the feed on its display.

This functionality can be used to extend the baby monitoring functionality on the C300 and C400, or to check that your children are doing their homework.

You can also link your cameras to your smart locks and sensors, and if an abnormality is detected, your Xiaomi smart camera will automatically record the footage and trigger its alarm if appropriate.
