    Eufy EverCam

    Eufy Security Camera - first use review

    I just received my two pack Eufy security camera and it was pretty easy to set up. The biggest challenge so far is the main one I have pointing on my driveway seems to pick people up very late and it just barely captures them before they go off screen and head down the walkway to my front door. I have the device set to maximum sensitivity but it just doesn't seem to pick motion up soon enough to create a meaningful record (in this case walking up the driveway). When you end up with short snippets of video versus longer stream of motion, it starts to feel like a wireless system comes with a big compromise to save battery life. The video quality is moderate and during the night with outside lights on maybe a C+ at best (nothing is really discernable and certainly would not be strong enough to identify any trespassers as evidence if necessary).

    The other interesting thing is where they decided to put the charging plug if you choose to hardwire the power to the unit. It is right at the upper back and interferes with the fixed mounting bracket when installed on the underside of a soffit. Very strange that no one would have thought of the limitation with that placement.

    Anyways, at this point, I am having a bit of a knot in my stomach about backing this product for the price I paid and wonder if it really is going to produce anything valuable.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Did you do the software update? I got mine and did the software update, the detection is pretty quick. I know they said that the software update improved detection time (made it quicker) and it seems to work well. I did not test it before doing the software update, so I don't have any before or after comparison.
