There are a lot of security camera options on the market these days, but like anything else, not all are created equal. Unfortunately, Eufy has joined the shortlist of companies' products that we can no longer recommend because of security issues and poor business practices.
But, if you absolutely insist on having a Eufy-powered smart home, the company makes a range of versatile products that check basically every box and often offer the best value for the price.
The eufy Security Solo IndoorCam makes it easy to keep an eye on what's happening inside your home with a 2K resolution camera, night vision, and local or cloud storage. You'll even get AI detection for people, pets, and even crying sounds.
Watchful eye for the outside
While this outdoor security camera may seem small, it is packed with excellent AI features to detect people, animals, and crying to help you be better informed about what is happening outside of your home. You'll never miss a thing thanks to night vision and a built-in LED flood light.
Starts at the door
The eufy Video Doorbell 2K is available in both battery-powered and wired options. Both offer 2K resolution, HDR for a clear picture regardless of lighting, activity zones, and AI detection to reduce false notifications.
Motion sensors offer many functions, and the eufy Motion Sensor can integrate with other eufy products for an even more robust security system. The motion sensor has a 100-degree field of view with up to 30 feet of range to send you a notification if motion is detected or even trigger a camera to start recording.
SoloCam S40 boasts all of the excellent AI features that eufy is known for with fantastic 2K resolution, all while connecting directly to Wi-Fi instead of a hub. The 600-lumen flood light combined with IR night vision ensures you don't miss a thing. Oh, and the pair of battery power and built-in solar means no recharging.
Open and shut
Much like how the eufy Motion sensor can interact with other eufy devices to provide a circle of protection, the Entry Sensor can too. It can notify you when a door has been opened and even sound a 100-decibel siren to scare off would-be intruders. The sensor can also let you know if it's been left open for a period of time.
No Wi-Fi needed
No wires. No Wi-Fi. No problem. The eufy Security 4G LTE Cellular Security Camera Outdoor uses AT&T or EIOTCLUB for its LTE coverage. It is great for large properties and makes it easy to keep an eye on everything without needing Wi-Fi. Adding the solar panel means you don't have to worry about power or connectivity.
One camera for the whole room
With the eufy Security Solo IndoorCam P24, you'll be able to mount your camera and see 360 degrees around with a 96-degree vertical range to ensure you don't miss a thing in your home. The 2K resolution will help get the perfect picture, and the built-in AI can track and follow movement in your home, so nothing goes unnoticed.
Day and night
From the three tunable LED floodlight panels capable of 3000 lumens to the 360-degree 2K camera armed with tracking AI, the eufy SECURITY Floodlight Cam 2 Pro is the ultimate outdoor security camera. This camera will see it for you no matter what happens outside your home, day or night.

Eufy's cameras can store video both locally and on the cloud for the best of both worlds. Combining easy-to-use intelligent security cameras and a good lock can go a long way in keeping your home safe — and eufy can help with it all.
The issue is that Eufy was less than transparent with its users about what types of footage uploaded to the cloud without user consent, and the company has been caught streaming unsecured video more than once now. While many of these issues were patched up after the problems were made public, Eufy was less than forthcoming about changes being made and how they specifically planned to secure user data in the future.
To top it off, Eufy deliberately removed some of its security and privacy promises from its website instead of just fixing its products to meet the original standards that customers purchased its products for. Because of these combined issues, we can't easily recommend Eufy Security products even though they offer a wealth of great features for a great price.
