Eve Systems today announced the availability of its Eve Outdoor Cam, which is the first outdoor HomeKit-enabled floodlight camera that supports the HomeKit Secure Video feature.

First introduced at CES, the Eve Outdoor Cam is a floodlight cam that features a black metal frame and an opaque white glass for the lighting component, along with IP55 water and dust resistance. It features a 1080p camera with a 157 degree field of view, and it is able to be wall mounted with a three-axis hinge.

The Outdoor Cam works in the dark thanks to integrated infrared night vision that works up to 26 feet away, and it supports two-way communication through the built-in microphone and speaker.

‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ capabilities are included in iCloud+, which is priced starting at $0.99 per month. With ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ support, the Eve Outdoor Cam can save 10 days of video, plus it is privacy focused and footage is fully encrypted regardless of whether you're viewing the camera footage locally or remotely using a home hub.

There are also useful AI detection features, so users can receive notifications when motion is detected, and through ‌‌HomeKit Secure Video‌‌, the camera can detect people, animals, vehicles, and package deliveries for tailored alerts.

The $0.99 per month 50GB ‌iCloud‌ plan supports one ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ camera, while the 200GB plan priced at $2.99 per month supports up to five. With the highest-end 2TB ‌iCloud‌ plan priced at $9.99 per month, an unlimited number of ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ cameras can be used. Footage stored from a ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ camera does not count against ‌iCloud‌ storage limits.

The Eve Outdoor Cam can be purchased from the Eve website for $250.

I can’t recommend Eve enough. Their products are so so good. And they are very private. The Eve app is very good at automations and triggers as well, controlling other smart products (non-Eve). Looking to get this camera now!

Can HKSV even handle video larger than 1080p? This is an issue that I've run into with two Netatmo outdoor cameras plus the Logitech video. There's just not enough resolution in HomeKit.
I don't think it can even support "2K" resolutions.

Homekit only supports 1080 and this camera is exclusively for HomeKit.

But $250 is way too much for a smart camera. And not even 5Ghz WiFi? Sure 2.4 is better for range, but still. I guess it will go on sale eventually. Looking for reviews though for image quality. Eves other indoor cam had lower than average camera quality compared to Eufy, Ecobee, and Aqara.
Which really makes this product confusing. At the very least at this price point, it should have a higher resolution local storage with downscaling for homekit live viewing. It could backup its local storage during periods of no motion/user requests.

It's quite expensive for needing a subscription as well to be fully exploited.
You don't need any subscription but Apple's own storage plan.

That must be an inefficient light, since "opaque" means little or no light can pass through it.

Pretty sure I have two eufycam’s that are outside and have HomeKit secure video…
Eve's actual claim is that it's the first FLOODLIGHT homekit camera.
