Don't waste your money
Doesn't record half the stuff that happens always checking cameras to find out most of the action hasn't been recorded I people come into the house and leave and the camera doesn't even pick it up, just a big waste of money now I'm going to have to remove them and get a better camera system, can't be too surprised its manufacturing quality is terrible.

Great product amazing
Great security system! Works amazingly. Very clear. Their product support is top notch. The APP is easy to use and set up and gives me great surveillance for my place. I honestly can't recommend them enough.

Great cameras and user interface. easy to setup and configure. However the big issue is the motion detection. By the time it picks up motion, starts the camera and starts recording, they have already left the area. ( if you google this you will see it has been issues for a few years) Making it useless. If there was a way to use the camera image for movement instead of the motion sensor then it would be great kit. but as it stands you will not get any usable recordings to show an issues.
yes they very good
my partner and I just changed to a new internet and phone provider and now ring cameras don't work at all , but the Eufy one works perfectly with our new provider , plus supoport service is tottaly crap for Australian people it is none existent in Australia

The Perfect Home Security Solution - Faultless
I have the 2c system. Setting this up was a breeze, the 2 mounting options are very easy to use and the quality is great. The clarity of the audio is crystal clear both ways, compatibility with a number of devices in the house with a great picture as well as a high level of reliability in the connectivity & the 365 day battery life are all amazing. Internal storage means no expensive cloud storage options (and no subsequent hidden fees) which means for my application at home, it is the perfect solution. Highly recommend!

Unfortunately doesn't live up to the hype !
I have had my Eufy 2c four camera system for two weeks and have had nothing but issues. Very easy to set up and the picture quality is great, but that's about all that is good. It's very glitchy as the majority of the time it won't detect motions or send notifications. You have to continually change the settings to try and get the best out of it, which in itself is very frustrating. So disappointed as I researched long and hard to find a wireless system within my budget. There are plenty of similar complaints lately on the Eufy App community forum. Anyway these will be returned unfortunately.

Great product, quality footage day and night, with long lasting batteries. We love being able to check on our home whilst away via our mobile phones. Highly recommend if you have a good internet connection.

Excellent security system
Purchased in December 2019.Have 4 cameras set up on a rural property with the one furtherest away being 20 metres from the base....all connect seamlessly through WiFi. Excellent battery life considering a couple of the cameras record movement up to 25 times per day and are still full 2.5 months later. Excellent picture recording quality with both day and night vision. If installed as per instructions these cameras are bullet proof. Would recommend these cameras to every one .Great product

Only good if you are on wifi.
This review is also reflective of JB HIFI who basically blamed Optus and really didn’t make me feel like I could return the faulty product. I purchased this camera as it has a lot of good reviews and is considered better than the Arlo products on top of a claimed 12 month battery life and no on going subscription required for storage.
Now the problem I have is that I can not view either live or alert notified video feeds whilst away from my home wifi network. So this makes this thing as good as useless.
To rule out JB HIFI’s Optus network blaming I bought a Telstra SIM card and tried it. Same result.
So now I have to work out who I can escalate this to at JB HIFI so I can get another product or my money back.

Very good security camera system
Very good security camera system. I have had the 4 camera system for about 4 months now and it works really well. The GOOD: brilliant video quality; extremely good battery life (I live on a main road and the front cameras have only used 30% battery in 4 months - on a busy street!) easy to use and lots of adjustments for each camera, easy to download recording to my iPhone and it sends alerts to my phone with in seconds, works over Wi-Fi with on-board micro sim storage so no monthly cloud fees. Overall it does a great job of monitoring my p...roperty, the tech is current and their customer service it EXCELLENT..! The NO-So GOOD: there is not much I don't like about this system except for the cameras sometimes don't record all motion depending on the temperature of the day I guess but that is only sometimes and the system asks for the memory card to be reinserted randomly when it hasn't been touched. Overall; this system is brilliant, easy to set up and use and coming from a fixed camera set up, I have never looked back I love it; highly recommend this product!!

Easy to set up but useless range
This system is easy to set up, asnd if it worked would be excellent value for money. My issue is with the range of the wireless reception. Nowhere on the youtube videos or instructions supplied did it provide information on the wireless sending range. We had the homebase set up and mobile phone hooked up within minutes. Then we went to our closest location for our first camera install. This was around 8 metres away and through 2 besser block walls. No signal. System tells us to move closer to the homebase until we get a "great" signal. This occ...urred at around the 4 metre mark, and was next to the window of the room housing the homebase. Went up the other side of the house towards installation point 2 and the signal dropped out again around the 4 metre mark. Started looking on line for a wifi extender solution and discovered a myriad of issues relating to this exact situation. Due the low bandwidth of this system, you can't use just any extender, and EUFY have yet to produce one. Do your research carefully when considering this product. Unless you have a small house built of timber or glass it probably isn't a viable security option. Very disappointed.

Easiest Setup - and works as described
The camera system is very easy to setup and I had it all going in less than 30 mins minus the charging of units. Above this is config as it can take some time to get the camera positions, settings and notifications right but the app has great tools to aid in this.
The product overall feels very 'appleish' meaning it is all well thought out and seamless. Very happy with unit, the 365 battery life is something no one who reviews can yet comment on but based on how they estimate this it makes sense, being that if you have 30 or less notifications...

Eufy camera =AMAZING!
I am very happy with these cameras
Coming from a security background I am well aware of all the major brands
The facial recognition is second to not the AI will Automatically Zoom in on a persons face leaving you easy information to give to the police
This is a true wireless system if you plug in a cheap $59 failsafe backup power system to run your internet if a power out and the recent updates x2 which you will have to install have made this product even more capable and much faster detection
No more false alerts and you can mount eufy nearly or virtually anywhere!

Questions & Answers
Do the Anker Eufy cameras allow us to be logged in from two different phones or from a phone and a Mac/PC at the same time? The Arlo cameras allow only one login at a time (e.g. if you are monitoring a security incident from a PC and then want to switch to a phone, the PC is logged out), which is a huge limitation and frustration. We are wondering if the Anker solves that problem.
If Anker Eufy cameras store data locally (presumably on a chip in the back of the base station), how do we view the stored images when we are away from the house (e.g. interstate)?
Currently we use Arlo cameras for the holiday house, and we can view the entire library of saved images from an iPhone, because that library is stored in the cloud (on Arlo's servers). However, we are unhappy with the Arlos for other reasons, so we are considering the Eufy for our home.
Both my camera's set off a alarm when something sets them off. I do I turn the the alarm off?
