I have some ideas for EufyCam Security modes. (sorry if any of this has already been talked about)
I love these cameras and the whole system is fantastic however there are some things I would love to see in the Security Modes.
Geofencing is great but it means when I am at home asleep during the night the cameras aren’t recording (without manual intervention) and we all want things to be as automated as possible so lets look at the Schedule…
Schedule is good too but only being able to Use Disarmed, Home and Away is a bit limiting and would be fantastic to use Geofencing in there as well as maybe custom modes. (maybe this is coming, I know Geofencing is in Beta)
For example 6am to 9pm use Geofencing so if I am away from home it is recording and if I am at home it isn’t recording. Then 9pm to 6am put in Away mode (Recording) while I sleep.
Next up - Home, Away and Custom modes have settings for -
It would be good to also have a Turn off Camera setting so that when I’m sitting at home certain cameras (internal) can be turned off while (external) can be left on.
You could then have Home Mode set to -
Internal Cameras OFF
External Cameras ON, Recording, Notifying
Away Mode set to -
Internal/External Cameras ON, Recording, Notifying.
Now don’t see this as me complaining because I’m very happy with my cameras but these options would add huge flexibility and would take it another step above its current greatness.
