About the Kami Mini

A bang-for-the-buck camera

There are a growing number of wireless camera options to keep an eye on our homes, but few deliver as robust a feature set for the price as the Kami Mini. It has a wide 112° field of view and can see in the dark thanks to eight built-in infrared LEDs. It's small enough to tuck away on almost any tabletop or shelf, and it plugs into a standard AC outlet for power, so you don't need to worry about keeping a battery charged. 

A bang-for-the-buck camera

There are a growing number of wireless camera options to keep an eye on our homes, but few deliver as robust a feature set for the price as the Kami Mini.

It's small enough to tuck away on almost any tabletop or shelf, and it plugs into a standard AC outlet for power, so you don't need to worry about keeping a battery charged. 

The Kami Mini connects to your home's Wi-Fi, so you can view its 1080p HD video footage or adjust its settings from anywhere using the mobile app. The two-way talk feature makes it easy to chat with people or pets at home.

Artificial intelligence can save you time

Artificial Intelligence (AI) face detection feature gives snapshot of faces captured

The Face Detection feature provides a snapshot of visitors so you don't have to scroll through a bunch of video footage.

I get alerts all day long from canine motion at my house, but not everyone wants to get a heads up when their pet moves from one room to another. This Kami Mini camera has a cool AI feature that allows it to distinguish between motion from pets versus people, so that you only get notified when you need to.

You can also enable the helpful Face Detection feature to get an instant snapshot of every face that appears in a video clip. That way you can tell instantly if someone unexpected appears. 

Optional cloud storage

You can view live video from your camera anytime using either the Kami Home mobile app or the Yi Home desktop app (Yi Technology makes Kami products). You can also view six-second clips of motion- or sound-triggered footage for free for 24 hours. If you want to save longer clips and have access to them for more than 24 hours, you'll need a Cloud Service plan. The Entry Plan ($3.33/month or $40/year) covers a single camera and allows you to view the previous seven days of videos from that camera. 

"Hey Google, show me the foyer"

Kami cameras work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices (sold separately) for hands-free home monitoring.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Kami mini is a small security camera that is packed with features. It watches over your home day and night, and alerts you instantly of any unusual motion-detected activity. The camera features 1080p Full HD resolution, a wide-angle lens, a bright f/2.0 aperture, and infrared LEDs for excellent night vision. You can connect the camera to your home Wi-Fi network or record locally to a microSD card (not included). The mini runs on USB power (5V 1A) from the included power supply and 6.5' USB cable.

Design: The camera is small and lightweight. It is designed to be placed on a shelf or tabletop. The camera can be tilted over 180° on its stand. Its dimensions are as follows:

  • Body: W-2.291" H-3.878" D-1.264"
  • Base Diameter: 3.152"
  • Overall Height: 4.5"
  • Weight: 3.6 ounces

Lens: The Kami mini is equipped with a 112° wide-angle lens with an f/2.0 aperture to give you a clear view of a wide area.

Night Vision LEDs: The camera has 8 individual infrared LEDs (940nm) to let you see in the dark. The LEDs automatically turn on in low light conditions.

Video Resolution: The Kami mini produces Full HD video with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p at 20 fps.

Audio: The built-in microphone and speaker provide 2-way audio capability. You can communicate with people in the room when using the Kami Home app. In addition, the camera will automatically alert you of any abnormal sounds that are detected in your home.

Face and Human Detection: The built-in Senslab chip gives the camera the ability to go beyond simple motion detection. It recognizes human movement, which helps reduce false alarms caused by pets. In addition, the camera uses Face Detection technology, and provides a summary of the faces that appear in each video clip.

Wi-Fi: The Kami mini connects directly to your home's Wi-Fi network (2.4GHz), with WEP/WPA/WPA2 security. After connecting your smartphone/tablet to the network, you can pair your cameras to your device through the Kami Home app.

Kami Home App: Using the Kami Home mobile app, you can monitor and control the Kami mini camera from your smartphone or tablet. You can pair your Kami mini cameras to the app to view live video or recorded video clips. The app lets you set up Smart Activity Zones so you can choose areas where you want to receive or ignore motion and sound alerts. The app will alert you day or night of any unusual activity picked up by the camera's motion detection. When viewing a recording, you can zoom in up to 4x to focus in on certain areas for more details. Recorded 6-second videos are stored free in the cloud for 24 hours. (Free 30-day Cloud Service trial available) The Kami Home app is available from the Apple App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 10.0 or later, and from Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets (version varies with device).
