[Amazon.ca] eufy Security, Wi-Fi Video Doorbell with 2K HD,2-Way Audio - $179.99 w/ $60 coupon // Wireless $169.99 w/ $50 coupon

Stumbled across this while looking at smart doorbells for my in-laws. I wanted to get the $99 Nest Hello that was posted recently but wasn't able to pick one up. This looked like the next best thing, I also like the fact that I didn't have to subscribe my in-laws to the services like Nest Aware as this camera looks like it records locally.

I personally have the Nest Hello so I can't speak on the quality of this eufy, but it looks generally highly reviewed. This is the wired version, 2K video + electronic chime. I'm sure others with eufy can speak to their experience with this doorbell.

$239.99 - $60 coupon = $179.99

Edit: Looks like Amazon also has the wireless version for $219.99 - $50 coupon =$169.99 , this one doesn't look like it has the newer homebase

I really like this doorbell. There is also a model that is battery powered and doesn't need the doorbell wires.

Anyone know if Eufy offers a subscription based service as well (for home alarm)? Looking to get something that also has live monitoring. Ring offers the service for $15/month.

If anyone has experience with it, would love to know what their thoughts are on the quality of it.

The Eufy battery powered one can also be wired or run on battery correct? It also gives you the option to use your existing bell chime, while this one doesnt.

No subscription required. I have 3 in my house running on the same doorbell circuit - no power problems whatsoever.

So far, experience has been great. It notifies me of any movement on my phone and it's super sensitive - likes to detect moving car wheels and other random inanimate moving objects as human. Sensitivity can be adjusted on the app.

What's slightly annoying is there's a minimum 10 second delay for phone notifications - sometimes minutes but this could possibly be from my wifi or the delay in writing to the built-in memory. Also, the Eufy chime can't connect to more than one doorbell.

Video quality is great during the day and it has infrared vision but you can get overexposure from IR bouncing around.

Totally worth it for me because I hate subscription service and the features you get for this price is unbeatable.

Headsup to Samsung phone users - based on my experience (Galaxy S10e), this app can have really delayed notifications if you allow the Samsung battery optimizer to run on the app. Unfortunately, if you turn off the optimizer, the Eufy app destroys battery life - like 40% drain in 5 hours.

I have been engaged with Eufy support, and they have attempted a couple of beta firmware and app versions for me to try, but nothing solves the issue yet.

I have an Abode security system, and the notifications are extremely quick and no battery issues. If I could go back in time, I'd avoid this product.

Correct, though only an existing mechanical chime can be used with the wireless. It can also use an echo.

Other features of the wireless are the included home base, which can be used to add other devices, the larger memory capacity that resides inside, rather than in the doorbell itself and the lack of a prebuffer

For the wireless one, can the existing doorbell be used both in wireless and wired modes?

There are two pillars in front of my house, one that is roughly 3 feet in front of existing doorbell.
My existing doorbell is about 30 years ago when my house was built, so I am sorely wanting to replace it with something more modern.
However, the existing pillar is my biggest concern, as I am not sure how much vision I can get out of this doorbell.

Thoughts?

I'd assume wired only. Not sure how you'd operated a mechanical chime otherwise.

Homebase with the wireless one does also function as a chime and you also have the option of the echo dot as a chime, so unless you are really attached to your existing chime for some reason, i can't see it as a deal-breaker

I've got a wall on one side of my doorway and a pillar about 3 feet away on the other side as well. If i had to guess, I'd say the opening between them is 4ft or slightly less. The camera has a wide angle lens, so obstructions aren't an issue for me. So long as you mount the doorbell on the doorframe, or as close to the door as possible (like most people do) you shouldn't have issues.

Is there any reason to pick the wired one if the wireless one can also be hooked up wired if required but also gives the wireless option. ?? Or am I missing something..

Since it saves locally, you’d assume you could operate it in a closed loop if you wanted to. No. It needs internet access even if you want to run it locally. Just be aware.

Got the wireless one wired in as my old wiring doesn’t provide enough power to run the wired one. I have it wired in to keep the battery topped up. I think they said the wireless one is a bit bulkier too. The one complaint people have with eufy is it’s size and shape compared to nest and such. Not as nice looking but for me not going for looks.

Wired one does not work for auto notification on Google Nest hubs. Had I known this, I would have got a Nest one instead.

Is there any benefit to getting the battery version with the homebase vs the battery version with the microSD chime, if i don't have any other eufy products?

Some notes about wired/wireless versions

  • Wired version records locally and isn't compatible with Eufy's “homebase.” This means that if somebody were to steal/break the doorbell, the recording would be lost. The Wireless version transmits video to a homebase so even if the doorbell is stolen, you can still access the video on the homebase
  • Wireless version starts recording about 3 seconds later than the wired version after motion is detected. This is because even if you decide to wire the Wireless version, it’ll operate in low power mode
  • Wired version isn’t compatible with existing door chimes and you’ll need to use a jumper to bypass your existing chime box. Don’t know if this is also required for the Wireless version
  • Note also that Best Buy USA sells a Eufy Doorbell Pro that records 24/7
