In a significant update to its security camera offerings, Eufy, the smart home brand under Anker, has unveiled a quartet of innovative cameras designed to enhance home surveillance. The new series includes the SoloCam S340, Floodlight Cam E340, Indoor Cam S350, and Video Doorbell E340. Boasting dual lenses, these cameras introduce a cutting-edge cross-camera tracking feature that improves user experience and security.
The core feature of Eufy's latest camera lineup is its dual lenses. Each camera boasts a wide-angle lens for comprehensive coverage and a telephoto lens for detailed zooming.
The SoloCam S340, priced at $199.99, is a battery-powered outdoor camera equipped with a 3K resolution wide-angle lens and a 2K telephoto lens offering an 8x hybrid zoom.
The Floodlight Cam E340, priced at $219.99, the first Eufy camera with 24/7 recording capabilities, boasts a 3K wide-angle lens and a 2K telephoto lens with dual floodlights delivering up to 2,000 lumens of illumination.
The Indoor Cam S350, priced at $129.99, combines a 4K UHD resolution wide-angle lens and a 2K telephoto lens with pan-and-tilt functionality. Lastly, the Video Doorbell E340, priced at $179.99, comes with a 2K wide-angle lens for visitor monitoring and a 1080p lens for package detection.
Perhaps the most notable advancement in Eufy's new lineup is the introduction of a cross-camera tracking feature. This innovative capability, available through the Eufy HomeBase 3 hub, enables seamless tracking of an individual or event across multiple cameras.
The AI-powered technology identifies a person on each connected camera, splices the footage together, and sends a consolidated notification along with a single video. This not only streamlines notifications but also provides a comprehensive view of an event from different perspectives.
The cross-camera tracking feature will be available for a free beta trial at launch, with a final version expected to roll out in the fourth quarter of 2023. While the pricing details for this feature are yet to be disclosed, it is likely to be part of a subscription service.
Eufy has also addressed privacy concerns by incorporating on-device AI and locally stored recordings accessible without a subscription. The Eufy HomeBase 3, priced at $149.99, now includes a 1TB hard drive, offering ample storage for recorded footage. Existing Eufy cameras compatible with HomeBase 3 will also gain access to the cross-camera tracking feature, eliminating the need for users to purchase new cameras to enjoy this functionality.
All four cameras are currently available for purchase on Amazon and Eufy's website. They are compatible with popular voice assistants, Alexa, and Google Assistant, and can seamlessly connect to the Eufy HomeBase 3, which supports up to 16TB of local storage.
