Eufy is known for its privacy-conscious cloudless security cameras. Now the company is moving from indoor cameras and video doorbells to the real outdoors with its latest products. The company announced new outdoor cameras, including a solar-powered option, and a package return device.
Starting with the security cameras, Eufy’s new entries begin with similar base models: the SoloCam E20 and E40. Both are wireless outdoor cameras that don’t require the cloud. Instead, they have 8GB of EMMC storage that can hold up to two months of video. The 67000 mAh battery should last about four months before you need to recharge it.
They are compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant and come with built-in AI for human detection. The main difference between the two models is resolution and price. The SoloCam E20 can record at 1080p and costs $99.99, while the SoloCam E40 can record at 2K resolution and costs $129.99. Both will be released in June 2021.
While the previous night vision cameras use infrared and black and white display, the next two cameras switch to color night vision. And to complement the security feature, the SoloCam L20 and SoloCam L40 cameras double as a floodlight that should help with night vision and potentially deter intruders.
Like Eufy’s other cameras, they have 8GB of EMMC storage, AI human detection, and a larger 13400mAh battery that can still charge for 4 months even with the floodlights on. Again, the main difference between the two models is resolution and price. The SoloCam L20 can record at 1080p and costs $149.99, while the SoloCam L40 can record at 2K resolution and costs $169.99. Both will be released in July 2021.
And if you don’t like the idea of charging your camera every four months, the SoloCam S40 has a built-in solar panel to charge it during the day. Like the previous cameras, it can do night vision in color, shine a spotlight, and in this case even sound a siren. You still get AI human detection, Google Assistant and Alexa compatibility, and you can adjust the spotlight color temperature. The SoloCam S40 will cost $199.99 when it releases in August 2021.
Finally, Eufy’s latest camera doesn’t look like a camera at all. As the name implies, the Floodlight Cam 2 Pro works as both a floodlight and a camera. You get three light panels with a capacity of 3000 lumens, motion detection, a siren of 100 decibels and built-in storage. The camera can pan and tilt to get the perfect angle of your property and records in 2K resolution. However, you will need to wire it to your house. The Floodlight Cam 2 Pro will cost $299.99 when it releases in July.
Leaving the camera world somewhat is the Eufy Securty SmartDrop. It looks like a mailbox, and that’s not far from its intended target. Place a SmartDrop on your property and people from FedEx, UPS, etc. can safely leave your packages there. It even has a camera so you can track anyone approaching it. You use a PIN, app or key to unlock it and pick up your package. It is weatherproof, battery operated and instructs the courier on how to deliver the package via voice prompts and a sticker. Eufy calls it a “large capacity” with 115 liters. The company has not yet announced a price, but the SmartDrop will be released in August 2021.
