2 new models: eufy Indoor Cam 2K with HomeKit compatibility

From eufy, the smart home brand from Anker, there are now two new surveillance cameras in Germany. This is the eufy Indoor Cam 2K - once “only” with a motion sensor, and once with a pan-tilt function. At 39,99 euros and 49,99 euros, the prices for the new security cameras are comparatively low. They can also be coupled with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. They also work with the Eufy Security App and come with a two-way audio system. Further technical details as well as pictures and the link to Amazon can be found below.

The eufy Indoor Cam 2K is available as a surveillance camera in two versions. Both deliver high-resolution videos, local storage, compatibility with HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Assistant, and a small price point.

eufy Indoor Cam 2K with motion sensor

The small and lightweight surveillance camera for use in the house or apartment delivers recordings in either 2K or 1080p resolution. People can be distinguished from animals using face recognition. If the entire room is not to be monitored, you can also select image sections (so-called activity zones) in which a movement triggers the recording, a message on the smartphone or similar actions. Audio can not only be recorded, but also broadcast live in both directions. Saving the recordings in the cloud is optional; local storage is also possible on a microSD card (see below). You can find more information about the 39,99 euro cheap security camera on the Amazon product page.

eufy Indoor Cam 2K with pan-tilt function

This slightly larger and heavier surveillance camera is ideal if you not only want to keep an eye on a fixed image section, but also want to look around virtually. You can remotely rotate the camera around its own axis (360° horizontal panning) and steer it up and down (96° vertical tilting). This model also offers 2K resolution along with 8x zoom and night vision function. Just like the rigid model, there is person detection, activity zones, two-way audio and a slot for a microSD memory card for storing recordings locally. Further details and the option to buy the camera, which costs 49,99 euros can be found here on Amazon.

The right SD memory card for the surveillance camera

Anyone who visits Sir Apfelot regularly knows that memory cards are my hobby. Why I only recommend those from SanDisk, I don't want to go into further detail here; for that I recommend you my SD card purchase advice. From this one can also quickly deduce which microSD memory card (according to eufy supports up to 128 GB) I recommend for the devices described above: the SanDisk Extreme microSDXC. With the V30 standard, it is even suitable for 4K recordings. You can read what the other abbreviations (A2, U3, UHS-I) mean on it in this guide.

  1. Were you able to test the HomeKit integration? According to the reviews at Amazon, this does not currently work.

    1. Hello Volker! I haven't integrated them yet. I'll test that later and let you know. The usual, simple way via the QR code, which is scanned in the Homekit app, does not work because the cameras are apparently integrated via the eufy base. I have to first find out how it works. : D

    2. Hello Volker! I have now activated Homekit with the eufy Security App and my two cameras are delivering a stream directly to the Home app. So it works flawlessly. Only the connection to a camera in the garden is a bit wobbly via Homekit, while it always provides a stable image in the eufy app. But that is probably due to the distance ... The home app may have a shorter time after which it reports an error, while the eufy app tries a little longer.

  2. Hello, I've read it once and can't find it anymore. Maybe someone can tell me how many cameras the HomeBase2 can manage?

    1. Unfortunately I don't know either. Couldn't find the info on the net quickly either. Maybe someone has the info?
