Tried a few of the others, Arlo and Argus were horrid as far as motion detection. Arlo servers went down for 5 days and because they are all “cloud” based…NO recordings. Even ring is cloud base.
Eufy is “in-house” encrypted storage.
Using Wi-Fi to connect to cameras and store videos on a microSD card.
Nobody else using or viewing my videos.
Like ring, using customer videos in TV ads because “users” checked a little box to accept the “terms and conditions” when installing the app.
Giving ring full control over ALL of your private footage.
And… All your videos can be viewed and watched by law enforcement upon request.
Peeps wasn’t expecting that.
Eufy has amazing motion detection distance. At times it can sense over 100’ and the field of view is higher. With others you feel you need more cameras because they don’t actually pick up activities over 15’ away even though they say 30’.
Battery life seems extremely exceptional. Been up and running months and not one dip on any camera battery level. Has yet to be seen.
The support has also been exceptionally good.
It does appear that this manufacturer truly does care about its customers and I mean that.
Application and firmware of the cameras and hub are updated and continually improved and small bugs eliminated.
Recently adding geo fencing in app for field of view motion detection recording.
When contacting, they were kind and courteous and sent support items to me upon request free of charge.
Followed up with me to guarantee items were received and working well.
All in all… Very pleased with my product purchase and its performance along with the current direction of the company and their behavior.
