For all the moms and dads out there, Eufy is about to release its Baby Cam, the Eufy Security Baby Monitor!
The unit will be available early September, and priced around the 200$ price-point. For that, you get a fine-looking camera and parent unit with nice specs and an special treat:
The camera captures 720p images of your precious one and the room temperature. You can view the images, and also control the camera's pan, tilt and zoom, with the 5 inch HD screen powered by a 2900mAh Anker battery - meaning you can have it on you throughout the day without having to charge it. As the standard with most baby monitors, there's also two-way audio, so you can soothe the little one when needed. Completing the specs are night vision and the special treat I mentioned earlier: interchangeable lens.
Yes, you will be able to change the standard lens for a wide angle lens, giving you even more view over the baby's room. That's a feature you won't easily find in baby cams, specially not with the quality we got to know and love from Anker. And, as I mentioned before, the whole set looks nice!
As a new parent, I rely on a baby monitor on a daily basis. The parent unit on the baby cam I have has a lackluster battery - we plug it in everytime we are not moving around, so we can be sure to always have power on it. The camera is able to capture 720P, but the parent unit's screen is both too small and too low-res to profit from it. Imagine seeing your baby moving in the crib through the parent unit and wondering "Did he open his eyes? I can't be sure..." then entering the room to find that the baby was sleeping up until you came into the room. A nice screen on the parent unit, I found, is essential, and I can't wait to get a chance to test the Eufy Baby Monitor.

Also, thanks to the ever-seeing @joshuad11, we can look at the manual here: https://fccid.io/2AOKB-T8300C/User-Manual/user-manual-3970500.pdf
There is a MicroSD slot, though the manual doesn't mentions how the recording is done - if it's like a dash cam, or on demand.
