[eufy Entry Sensor] Improvement proposal: Showing colored duration of every event!

Dear eufyianics and @AnkerSupport @AnkerTechnical @AnkerOfficial

Aftery laying around for months unused, i have now started to use one of my eufy security entry sensors in preperation of the upcoming fimrware update and feature i would need and use it for:

So currently i use it for the main entrance of my house (courtyard door) to track how many times a day the door is opened and primarily to see if my tenants may have left the door open or have forgotten to close it again and therefore everyone in downtown area could easily access and enter the house.

Additionaly (as described in the thread linked above) i want to also use this sensor to trigger my courtyard cam.

So for now, a day looks like this for example:

As the forum is not showing the pic very smart, you may want to access it directly and click it once ot twice in your browser and scroll up and down to see it fully: https://d1bdmzehmfm4xb.cloudfront.net/original/3X/3/3/33d47ca63b9cbd2d354e2e5572b2e5462bd52738.jpeg

As you can see, there are dozens of events (open/close) per day and it is very confusing and unclear to read and have an overlook about it. So here comes my…

improvement proposal:
Would it be possible to add the duration of each event and color it?!

For example illustration:

If event is between 0 - 5 minutes = black

If event is between 5 - 30 minutes = orange

If event is longer than 30 minutes = red

This illustration for me shows you how to make the whole list of events much easier to read and to get an overlook! You can also see much easier which event belongs to which (open / close).

It would be great if you could realize my idea and improvement as i think many other users could also benefit from this improvement and may like it.

Looks good and easy to understand.

I don’t have any Eufy gear, but if it was infographics like this, I’d get it.


Thanks for the kind words! :heart:
If someone understands what i mean who does not even OWN the stuff we are talking about here … TOP! :ok_hand:

No gifs on this thread? :triumph::cry:

Never ever again buddy … the new forum killed the eufy GIF MASTER! :skull_and_crossbones:

To read the worldshocking news and to be up-to-date, read the following direkt link to Post #9 and read the following posts at least to post #16, where the GIF MASTER got viciously killed by an oldschool and outdated forum limit :dizzy_face:

Here is the direct link to post #9, read up to #16: Unlock the power of eufy Doorbell - Motion Detection - General & Product Discussion - Anker Community

In this above mentioned post #16, you can see the last remains from the GIF MASTER and his very last posted GIF:pleading_face:

:latin_cross: R.I.P. GIF-MASTER :latin_cross:

:warning: ATTENTION PLEASE! :warning:

i just have added a poll about this improvement proposal at the bottom of the very first post, with four possible answers.

No matter if you OWN or do not OWN eufy entry sensors, you are welcome and asked you give your vote there. Thank you very much!


@yamyam I do not like this idea at all… I LOVE IT!!! I do not own any eufycams at the moment but after I buy my new TV I am going after the two eufycam e set, maybe three. This you proposed makes it wayyyy easier to see duration of an event. I have the 2K doorbell and to add these cameras to my “home security” would be sublime!

testing testing for GiF

@yamyam bit puzzled… you don’t like the new forum? At first i thought GIf upload / animations were disabled, tested with a test GIF, glad the functionality is still around :joy:

@Shenoy Please read post #10 ( Unlock the power of eufy Doorbell - Motion Detection ) and following to understand WHY the GIF MASTER is dead. The reason is NOT because gifs not working anymore at the forum. There is another reason. :slight_smile:

No feedback yet?! :unamused:

Not familiar with the door sensors (but have a good guess on their overall setup :wink: )…your idea and suggestions are certainly solid fella but alas its down to the admins to pass on the suggestions to the Eufy development team to see if either they can implement (can’t see why not) or if they want to take that sort of route in the next set of updates (your guess is as good as mine) :open_hands:

Have you tried contacting with suggestions via support@eufylife.com which would probably be quicker for getting direct to the Eufy development team?

No, of course not. What sense makes a forum when the operator does not read along?!
And when reading along, they can also answer, comment and participate!

Publishing ideas, suggestions, feedback, bug reports and all other issues publicly on a forum makes also 100 times more sense, as other customers can participate and say something. If all those send secretly and privately emails to the support, then … :open_mouth:

There should be anyway a social media instructor or forum employee whose job it is to do nothing else than taking care of the customers at those “channels”. And one of the eufy (development) team should be anyway around here, at least in the eufy section of the forum!

If anker only operates the forum to have one or that customers can make smalltalk but noone cares about whats discussed there and taking part of it … then rather turn off the board emmediatly.

Nice that you started using door sensors now, I see more ideas are flowing… I like the color code system, I can definitely use it on mine.
Thanks @yamyam :ok_hand:

Hello!@yamyam Again thanks so much for your great suggestion! As you mentioned, there are dozens of events (open/close) per day and it is very confusing and unclear to read and have an overlook about it. Your idea of adding event duration and coloring is really worth considering! We’ve already forwarded it to our engineer team and they are discussing the availability now. Sincerely thank you for your great voice and assistance to eufy!


:clap::clap: show of support and response from @AnkerSupport to @yamyam

Great inputs!!
