[Amazon.ca] eufy Security, Wireless Add-on Video Doorbell with 2K Resolution, 2-Way Audio, with HomeBase 2 Included $217.99

eufy Security, Wireless Video Doorbell (Battery-Powered) with 2K HD, No Monthly Fee, On-Device AI for Human Detection, 2-Way Audio, Simple Self-Installation

I know back in Dec 2020, and early Jan 2021 it was on sale for $209, but at $217.99 ($237.99 - $20 Amazon instant Coupon) is still a pretty good price. Regular price is $329 on amazon. Homedepot has it for $279 right now

I would like Anker to admit and fix the serious security flaws in their cameras before I can recommend any of their products. All my Eufy cams are turned off currently because there is no clarity as to how secure my feeds are. Anyone could be watching me without me knowing. Scary.

I have been using this and eufy 2 cams for the past 2 years. No such issues. I have serious doubts on the credibility of the website, but am not stating that you're lying. Good on your part for showing this to other RFD folks.

Yup, atleast they were honest with it right away, and not wait months to tell everyone like a certain other company.

"We realize that as a security company we didn't do good enough," Saxton said. "We are sorry we fell short here and are working on new security protocols and measures to make sure that this never happens again."

Some of those new protocols include:

Upgrading Eufy's network architecture and strengthening its two-way authentication mechanism.
Upgrading Eufy's servers to improve processing capacity.
Obtaining specialized Privacy Information Management System, or PIMS, certifications.
According to Saxton, Eufy's customer service team has attempted to contact all affected customers, but users with further questions can email the Eufy support team at support@eufylife.com.

Any thoughts on the 1080P wireless version? Superstore is selling that for 149.99.
