I have the Wyze doorbell. In terms of detection/sensitivity, I found it to not be as good as the built in AI in the V2 (which is located directly above the doorbell) and has no built in storage (so stuck to using the free notifications or the paid subscription). It was a bit glitchy initially but it has been working fine after I updated it. You can't use your existing chime but that wasn't a huge issue for me. For $60, no real complaints.

I got the 2K one earlier this month and returned it. I was expecting storage on an SD card like the wyze cam, but it only had onboard storage.
The deal breaker was the fact it only records when it detects motion or someone rings the bell...then it sometimes missed motion. I was better off with a wyze cam where I could record constantly and review it at my leisure.
Hope this helps

It's good to know, but it's also info that is readily available before purchasing. From eufy's website:
How many days of video can the included 4GB eMMC built-in storage save in the most common usage scenarios?
The doorbell has a 4GB eMMC built-in storage, which can store up to 30 days of video, assuming you’re recording 30 videos a day and 30 seconds of each video. This is more than enough in most cases. Actual duration varies depending on the recording frequency and video length.

Can the video doorbell record 24x7?
No, the doorbell doesn’t support 24x7 recording for now. The 3s pre-buffer let you see the whole picture prior to the initial alert.
Don't knock a product due to poor product research.

I have the 2k version of this and I can provide some feedback.

Having tried a few video doorbells (Not Wyze, unfortunately, but I think I'm better off without that, given lacking person detection) I found this one to be the best by far. The video quality is pretty good. Clear faces, which is what I expect! The FoV is nice and wide which is nice, though I think there was some vertical adjustment. I see too much sky, personally, and the doorbell is mounted relatively flush. Again, 2K version, the 1080p version may differ.

Audio quality is also decent. Just need it for voice and it does the job.

The person detection so far has been great. It hasn't missed an upcoming person yet. The largest issue so far might be the speed of the detection, but it doesn't bother me personally. I feel like there was a more expensive doorbell that was able to identify a person a little further out. It has missed me repeatedly flying in and out of the door a few times but perhaps there's some kind of cooldown that I'm not aware of. Either way no complaints. There's been one or two false positives due to a cedar tree that's like 3 feet from my door but that doesn't bother me in particular and I think it's a rare issue. I don't use the motion detection function.

On the detection note, notifications have also similarly been excellent, an issue I've had with previous doorbells. Person detection can be a bit slower due to the aforementioned speed issue, but doorbell ringing notifications have been great, 1-3 seconds from button press to my phone buzzing. I do wish the doorbell notification acted more like a phone call on my phone rather than just a notification, but that could come with a software update and I've seen that suggested on a few forums now.

Someone brought up the issue of local recording, a missing feature that doesn't bother me personally. The person detection has been more than adequate, but I can definitely understand wanting constant recording.

For those on the fence, at this price and from Amazon with the easy returns it's worth a shot.

This wired one should work without the homebase. It have a built-in 4GB storage. If the doorbell get stolen, you loose the footage.

Are you sure, I just watched the Wyze install video, and shows how to wire the fuses into the chime.

Yes... You use the chime box to power the doorbell.

There's a wireless electronic chime you plug in somewhere.

This. It is actually quite loud and there are a few different chimes you can pick from.
