Anker's eufyCam 2 Pro Camera With HomeKit Secure Video Now Available From Apple

Apple retail locations and Apple's online store now offer Anker's eufyCam 2 Pro, a home security camera that supports Apple's HomeKit Secure Video feature.

Priced at $349.95, the eufyCam 2 Pro features a 2K resolution and a 140 degree field of view for sharp wide-angle video. The setup comes with a home base required for operation along with two cameras to use in the home.

With ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌, video footage is encrypted and stored in iCloud rather than on servers handled by Anker. Footage can be viewed in the Home app, and all motion and people detection is done on-device for privacy purposes.

Using ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ requires an upgraded ‌iCloud‌ storage plan. Apple's 200GB plan supports one ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ camera, while the 1TB plan supports up to five cameras.

eufyCam 2 Pro offers customizable notifications, two-way audio support, and night vision in infrared and color. There's a built-in battery that is designed to last for up to 12 months before it needs to be recharged.

In addition to being available from Apple, the eufyCam 2 Pro can also be purchased from Amazon at the same price point, plus Amazon has add-on cameras for $150 each.

This is a bit of a buzzkill:

Battery life: 3 months (HomeKit enabled); one year (HomeKit disabled)

If the cameras had a power cord it would have been better.

Please be aware that you can only connect at 1080 resolution instead of 2K which is advertised ... Eufy claims this is a limitation of HomeKit.

"2K" usually means "1080", the 2K (1,920 pixels) is the horizontal resolution and it's ~1K (1,080 pixels) vertically, but no one calls it "1K". When we talk about "4K", the 4K refers to the horizontal resolution, which normally means 3840x2160, so it's 4K horizontally and 2K vertically (but again, no one calls that "2K", I have never heard anyone suggest "2K" to mean ~2,000 lines of vertical resolution).

This is actually pretty confusing because up until "4K", we used to refer to the vertical resolution (480, 720, 1080). Now they switched it to describe the horizontal resolution, I assume because some marketing knob found a cheap way to double the number used without actually changing anything.

EDIT: Now I see the actual resolution of this camera is 2304 x 1296...which is weird. A bit above 2K but not 4K either. So maybe that's what Apple TarHeel meant, it only gives you 1080 lines through Apple Home, but 1296 if not. I wonder why Apple would make that restriction, maybe they only support standard resolutions for encoding and since this is non-standard it can't work?

I'm looking for cameras which can be AC powered, which are resilient to winter outdoors, and use HSV. From my search, this doesn't exist.

Exactly my experience.
Privacy + weather proof + no maintenance isn't too much to ask from an outdoor camera protecting a home.
Weirdly the tech world hasn't produced a proper solution yet.

Netatmo Presence promised HSV ages ago, but fumbled the ball big time.
