Ease Of Installation

Using Xiaomi Home App

  • Download Xiaomi Home App from Google Play Store.
  • Set Region to which is Recommended.
  • Click (+) button on top right corner  Add manually  Search "Car-carried devices"  Scroll down & search Mi Dash Cam 1S
  • Follow the instruction from the screen
  • You are all set to go.

Xiaomi Home App allows you access the device through Wi-Fi connection. You could browse the albums of the device, play back videos, or download videos to your cell phone. All these operations do not use your mobile data.

The Mi Dash Cam 1S is configured with a professional in-car recording chip and image sensor. It supports voice control and helps you capture high-quality driving videos.

For starters, there’s no GPS built in, so your location isn’t recorded alongside the video. However, there is a G-sensor, so when the dash cam detects sharp cornering, rapid braking, or a collision, it will mark the current video file as an incident and ensure it’s protected. Otherwise, the looped recording system will recycle storage once the memory card has filled up, overwriting the oldest files with new ones.

Evidence For Any Events
This is the most obvious reason why a car dash cam is a great idea is protecting yourself against any accountability issues during any event. An extra eye that will continuously work towards keeping you safe and accountable. When a driving accident happens, such as a fender bender, rear end, or even a driver running a red light, video footage from a dash cam can be used as evidence to prove which party was really at fault. This footage is crucial to defending innocence and proving liability when it matters the most by giving an accurate depiction of the events. Having footage from the dash cam removes the “it’s my word against yours” rhetoric[size=14.6667px].

Parking surveillance
Mi Dash Cam 1S comes with the gravity sensor which will record upon an impact on the vehicle. The parking surveillance function is disabled by default. Go to Settings  Parking surveillance to enable it. After you enable the parking surveillance function, whenever the power is turned off, the dash cam will enter parking surveillance mode. If the vehicle is hit by another car while in this mode, the dash cam will automatically start recording a parking surveillance video and save the footage in the parking surveillance video directory. The next time the camera is turned on, it will notify the user to view this footage.

My Thoughts
The Mi Dash Cam 1S is compact, affordable and worth the investment should there be an unforeseen event which can save you time and money. It records 1080p video through a 140-degree lens, connects to a smartphone app via Wi-Fi, and is the very essence of ‘set it and forget it’. Another good feature is the parking surveillance which relies on an accelerometer to detect collisions while the car is parked. Thus far the recording is vivid and clear to be used for any reference.
