Eufy 2c cam motion detection triggered remotely by unauthorised?

I’ve has this happen quite regularly recently. System is set to its “off” state, but cams can be individually put into a semi-on state that results in the shutter open/close (clicking noise). No footage is recorded to the HomeBase. I’m thinking that there’s a security hole that allows some instructions to be sent to individual cams. This is worth looking into, particularly given the recent cloud/DOS issues Anker/Eufy experienced recently.

I think that it is not the shutter, but the IR filter that is swiveled in front of the sensor. The cameras have an electronic shutter that cannot be heard.

Apparently the day / night switching is active even though the camera is set to off.


That makes sense. I’ve got a video of the issue that I’ll upload and link here.
