Not long moved home and been looking to get some cameras for security and don't want to drill holes through my nice new walls to run cables. I didn't want ones with built-in storage, as if some miscreant steals the camera, I would have no evidence of who it was. These come with a base station and 16GB (would definitely upgrade) storage.

Saw these this morning, reduced from £249.99 to £199.99 and an additional code on the page too, to lower the cost down to £189.99

Built in spotlight for these is doing it for me and I am very tempted to finally pull the trigger.

According to the Camel, this is the first time they've dropped in price too!

They've not been out long, but reviews are positive - always subjective I know...

I backed the original Kickstarter and have had over a year now.

Battery life is pretty much spot on. They last a long time and you aren't up and down recharging them.

Worst part is the software, it needs work still. They have recently added Geofencing for alerts etc, but I find the speed of capture to be slow, sometimes I get clips of the postman walking away from the door having already delivered my post. It needs to be faster in firing up. Also lag, going 'live' to the cameras is not live and I'd say roughly 1-2 second delay, same applies to connecting via an Echo Show or Google device.

Image quality is decent you can make out faces with it. However the AI also is pretty garbage and never seems to recognise allowed faces.

I saw the original Kickstarter, and was tempted - but I'm always a bit shy with my own money for what can be a 'public beta' sometimes.

These are the 2nd gen - so not compatible with your setup either - I'm hoping the 2nd gen suffers less with the delays than yours.

They have updated the firmware on the Homebase 1 to allow the 2C cameras to function now it seems, unsure of delay, tempted to grab one and test and send back if no good.

Good to know, thanks - I just took the info from the Amazon webpage - guessing the forums are more up to date!

No worries I had to go check myself but thought I had seen something in a recent firmware update. Have ordered, will test tomorrow when it arrives. Hard to tell if experience would be same though as obviously I've the older homebase too.
Not bad but I will give a try first to Reolink Argus, with some luck you can get some models for around £50 per camera.
Off to google how these compare to Arlo. I'm not 100% happy with my Arlo set up so we shall see :P
These or Blink?
I have the arlo 2 Pro. If I had the choice today, I would go for this eufy setup. The Arlo is good bad the battery life is not that good, I have to recharge the batteries after a couple of months. Also I cannot set a detection zone without having the cameras plugged into the mains. This defeats the whole premise of these cameras. Another factor is the number of false alerts, every night, my cameras snap foxes and cats crossing my drive.
Ordered, just what Ive been looking for. Great price. Heat added.
I got these the other month after a lot of research. Paid £250. I ended up returning because the range for terrible for me. Worked great inside, but once outside the signal was lost. Despite moving the homebase around I still couldn't get it to work. Shame as it looked great.

Blink looks better because you don't need base or storage as cloud service included for free.
I am waiting for a deal to come along for blink xt2.
I've been looking at cameras for a while and going to give these a try. I like the idea of the video being stored on a base rather than on an sd card in the camera which could get stolen. Then I could expand with motion sensors to make more of a full home security system. Anyone any experience of the motion sensors?
this plus the ring security system for a complete home security system (camera, motion detection and alarms all on your phone), thoughts?
Anyone know the range of these cameras?

That appears to be a common complaint. Range limit could be as low as 12m

Wifi cameras .. £15 or less buys you a wifi blocker on eBay that would disconnect them from your router so they would stop recording.
