How does the video timeline work?

The video timeline is a tool that's been added to the app's Live Feed page.

This allows you to not only know what's happening in front of your cameras at present but also to get a sense of what's happening over time.

Video does not show yellow on the timeline?

1. Please kindly know that only the videos of PIR activities can be yellow marked on the timeline.
The videos of PIR activities can be saved in the cloud storage and in the SD card automatically when the camera is
triggered by the motion.

2. We advise you to turn on the Cloud storage, the time in the app will sync with your phone's time. You can check the videos of PIR activities saved in the cloud storage, go into the APP- Cloud storage- choose date-click ok.

1.please noted that when you live viewing videos in the app, your phone won't record PIR activities when someone is in front of the camera, because you can see the people immediately and the PIR can not be triggered.
2. If you want the PIR to be triggered by motion, please ensure that the SOLIOM APP runs in background and the camera is in standby mode.

Why can’t I see the video history after inserting a micro SD card?

The timeline below the video window on the app should be orange if the video history has been recorded. Move the orange part of the timeline to the pointer and then you can watch the past video from that time.

If you cannot see the video history:
Make sure that your micro SD card is functional.
Make sure that you are using micro SD card with minimum 4GB and above.
Make sure that your phone has been connected to the Internet.
If none of the above is your problem, please format your micro SD card either via computer or through YI home app (Click the camera on the app -> Check Settings -> SD card status -> Format SD card).
