Eufy Security app works as expected. Once you get the hang of it, could maybe be laid out a little better, but pretty comparable to all the other security camera apps.
Setting up was a breeze. Open box. Plug in hub and hardwire to router. Install app, scan QR code and the hub is installed to your account. Adding cameras is as easy as following the prompts in app (and voice prompts from the hub) basically select the type of camera to add... Hold camera at a close distance to hub, hold sync, and the hub emitts an audible tone to sync the cameras. Now the camera is accessible to the app, and you can daily in the settings or do a live view and start figuring out where to mount them.
Mounting is super simple. Two screws thru the little round base, then screw the camera onto the mount. When you need to recharge, you just unscrew the camera and plug into a standard micro USB cable and charge approximately 4 hours.
Camera quality and audio quality are really top notch. The app has settings for motion detection sensitivity and AI for detecting people. You can also set up "activity zones" to pinpoint where you want activity to trigger recording and notification. This all works very well, in my experience, with very few false triggers, from things blowing in the wind, etc. The detection zone is solid, mine triggers from underneath, and the sides very well not missing a crucial recording.
My only gripes is, why include a spotlight or alarm, that is in no way automated to detection? The alarm and spotlight need to be manually toggled on.
All in all a solid system for the price.
Everything is stored locally on the hub, so no subscription is needed, which is a definite plus!
*I've included some videos to show how/when the system starts recording motion. Which is really fast, compared to competitors systems, that typically don't start until the subject is well into their actions. As you can see the camera properly triggers from multiple angles, including approaching from under.
With any battery powered camera, placement of the camera is really key. Eufy does a good visual job of illustrating the angle of the motion sensor view in the quick start manual.
