The eufyCam 2 Pro features a 2K resolution for crisp, sharp video, and it is compatible with HomeKit. According to Anker, the eufyCam 2 Pro features support for HomeKit Secure Video, which means video is encrypted and stored in iCloud and footage is viewed in the Home app. All detection is also done on-device for privacy purposes, with no data sent to eufy.

‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ requires an upgraded ‌iCloud‌ storage plan. The 200GB plan supports one camera while the 1TB plan supports up to five ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ cameras, but the camera can also be used with local storage options.

The camera has a 140 degree field of view, customizable notifications, two-way audio, and support for night vision in infrared and color.

As with other cameras made by eufy, the eufyCam 2 Pro has a battery that lasts for 12 months before it needs to be recharged.

The eufyCam 2 Pro can be purchased exclusively from Best Buy for $150 for a single camera (hub required, the camera doesn't work on its own) and $350 for a bundle that includes a home base and two cameras.

No thanks.

I'm not going to start having to maintain a pile of hub/bridges for various HomeKit devices.

Man these WiFi cameras are so expensive but if you were a real thief you would know to cut the power so peoples wifi goes offline. Then go to town and rob them. Unless they have a power backup you are free.

Far better option than Amazon Ring and Google Nest if you value your privacy.

You don't even need to cut anything in many cases - newer homes have exterior main power switches for use in the event of a fire.

But a thief sophisticated enough to cut power/data lines is going to be able to get around most consumer-level security systems. If that much premeditation is going into robbing a home, you're going to need something way more complex and expensive to stop them.

I see such inexpensive wifi cameras more as a deterrent to opportunity thieves. Porch pirates and dishonest cleaners or babysitters. That kind of thing. They're not plotting a scheme to steal, they just see something and decide to take it on the spot.

"The eufyCam 2 Pro features a 2K resolution for crisp, sharp video, and it is compatible with HomeKit"
^^^ this
don't get it, what am I missing? are you planning to watch an Avenger movie at home? sounds like a lot of wasted storage and bandwidth
2K is not as significant of an upgrade as you think. It's roughly 10% sharper:

* eufyCam 2: 1920 by 1080 (2,073,600 pixels)
* eufyCam 2 Pro: 2048 by 1080 (2,211,840 pixels)
