Issue: When using the Small Ants Camera App to setup the camera, you receive the following connection error:
  • Android app error (v1.6.0_20150512)  -  "binding timeout please reset"
  • iOS app error (v1.1351) - "bandCamera_withErrorCode20272"

Resolution: Install the latest Xiaomi Home App (android 2.62 / iOS 1.3.1) and ensure that the Camera firmware is upgraded to the latest version (1.8.5.1F_xxxx):
  • Download the app from http://home.mi.com/index.html (iOS Supports English, while the Android app didn't appear to support english).
  • Go through the standard setup (blinking orange > add camera > wait for solid blue light > should receive successful message).
  • Click on the camera under the devices section > click upper right hand corner menu (3 dots) > Android (3rd option is to check Firmware option) or on iOS (Check the firmware version).
  • Click upgrade (you need to have a SD card inserted).

After you get the firmware upgraded, you can either choose to use the Home App or switch back to the Small Ants Camera App. I went back to Small Ants Camera App because it supports english on Android.


Notes
Download link for the Small Ants Camera App:
IOS app: https://itunes.apple.com/cn/app/xiao-yi-zhi-neng-she-xiang-ji/id931168730?l=zh&ls=1&mt=8
Android app: http://app.mi.com/detail/75646

For android, You may get "App not installed" error when installing the android app. Make sure you uninstall the customized english app(s) before installing the newer Camera/Home App.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone figured out how to mount the cam on a wall?  I opened the sticker on the bottom of the base and found 3 screw holes, but it should be opened from the other side, I can't seem to figure out how to open it.

Hi guys, I have the same problem with connecting the camera... I have a night vision version (as far as I know both share the same firmware), so could you reupload/share the firmware files?
