Still work to be done - I have had this installed for a week so far and here are my thoughts.
Looks slick - quite understated. Decent build quality.
At first the doorbell was picking up all motion - even when set to human (even outside the activity zones). Every passing car triggered recording. Now this has been fixed in ver 126.96.36.199.
Still it captures humans walking by outside the activity zone - needs to be fixed - Eufy has told me 2-3 weeks.
Video can be jerky at 2K resolution and delays in audio between me and people at the door. If I change the setting to low video quality compression (1600 x 1200) this resolves video smoothness and audio delay. Apparently this will be improved and is also an issue with the iPhone which they are fixing.
Battery lasted for 5 days in week one! Week 2 is better but have already lost 2 bars - probably because everyone walking past still triggers the recording. This has to improve as so far the battery life is terrible vs my Eufycam’s.
The Homebase chime is loud and clear.
Cannot get it to connect to my Echo Dot to chime though - despite it enabled in the Alexa app and doorbell press activated.
Finally the LED always on option - literally seems to be on all day. It’s not clear if this is meant to turn on when motion is detected or not. This would be ideal to save battery. Most people who have visited at night when the LED doorbell button light is off have pressed the camera as the infra red LED’s surround it!
More work to be done on the firmware and in a month or so reviews will probably be more representative of what the doorbell is capable of…
Eufy customer service as always has been excellent and they are responsive and trying to improve the product with updates quickly.
Edit - week 2 and the battery lasted 4 days this time on a full charge - possibly a defective unit as the other Eufycam batteries are working fine.
Confirmed by customer service - the LED doorbell button light is activated by motion. I still need to look at this tonight myself to see.
Finally - be aware that with the 2K video footage, this eats into your Homebase storage twice as fast now as the 1080p cameras. My storage has run out, then the Homebase attempts to make some space by deleting footage.
The major issue here is that rather than deleting the oldest recordings it has deleted the most recent - therefore losing a few GB’s of the last few days of recordings of all devices connected to that Homebase. Major flaw which has been reported and I hope can be fixed!
