Yesterday, eufy, the smart home brand from Anker, presented new security technology. With the solocam-Series there will be new smart surveillance cameras in the future. There is also with the Floodlight Cam 2 Pro an update for the previous camera model with headlights. The third novelty was SmartDrop presented a parcel box or locker with surveillance camera. This means that eufy is developing into an all-in-one provider for the secure smart home; especially since the brand's previous range already includes video doorbells, baby monitors with cameras and the like.
Under the name SoloCam, not only a smart surveillance camera was presented, but also several models, each with their own advantages. The all-in-one cameras with their own storage, which do not require a hub or cloud storage, are available, for example, with different resolutions and with or without light. One model for outdoor use even uses solar energy for operation. Here is the breakdown of the new eufy SoloCam cameras:
If you want to get more out of a surveillance camera with headlights, you should get it Floodlight Cam 2 Pro look at. "Our new headlight camera solves one of the biggest criticisms of floodlight cameras: the limited field of view. With its 360-degree pan and tilt function, the adjustable 3000 lumen LED array and the AI-controlled person recognition and automatic tracking, there is practically nothing that our surveillance camera could miss“, Says Frank Zhu, General Manager of eufy Security.
SmartDrop can be used as a parcel box, mailbox or locker. The storage option has a 1080p HD camera with 160 ° wide-angle camera, night vision function and motion detection. When the box is empty, it can be opened using the Open button. A security code can be set for further deliveries, via which the flap can be opened again and another package can be stored. You can also be notified when a package arrives, and SmartDrop can be unlocked using the app while on the move. Thanks to the microphone and loudspeaker, it is even possible to communicate with parcel deliverers.
