Bearing in mind that this is in the "Yi Action Cam" forum, may I ask why, when purchasing a camera f ...

i respectfully disagree-- considering one of the selling points of the camera is "baby-cry detection"--- and yes i also use a nestcam as my other baby monitor which does not have this time out issue.

I bought the YI outdoor cameras and indoor and have them hooked up to a 50" TV to live stream my cameras 24/7.  But I'm having the same issues of the PC software timing out. This needs to be fixed!!!! There should be an option not to time out!!!! YI PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!

As I said - you are posting this in the "Yi Action Camera" section of the forum.  The action cameras are not sold as baby monitors.  If you are using an Action Camera as a baby monitor then you are using it for a purpose it wasn't designed for.

The Home camera is different fropm the Action Cameras.  If you are using a Home camera for baby monitoring then perhaps you should actually post in the "Yi Home Camera" section of the forum which deals with the home cameras.

Hey guys I have this issue also. I used this article as a workaround
https://www.howtogeek.com/97998/how-to-make-your-computer-press-a-key-every-x-seconds/

But I changed the script a bit. You should be able to use this code

#Persistent
SetTimer, PressTheKey, 300000
Return
PressTheKey:
Send, {Space}
Send, {Space}
Return



bascially what's it's doing is hitting the space bar twice in a row rapidly every 5 mins. this pauses the camera and unpauses it in a fraction of a second every 5 mins and now it doesn't time out. If anyone needs help email me at nick.360group@gmail.com
