I have several SoloCam S40’s (with integrated solar panel) scattered around my property, all in good sunlight.
When any of them drops down to 67% or less charge rate, the Eufy app will send me ~600 notifications per-hour that I need to charge the camera. This is normal when the device is on during a few days of overcast skies.
These notifications come in at about 4 per-second, stop for several minutes, then burst in again, over and over and over.
There’s no setting in the app itself to disable charge notifications, and if I disable notifications globally in the system Notifications pane for the Eufy app itself, I no longer receive alerts of camera activity.
This is VERY frustrating, especially when I’m in a meeting and my phone and smartwatch start going off 4 times per-second with incessant, unnecessary notifications about an irrelevant charge rate.
The only way to stop these notifications is either pull out a ladder for each camera and charge them with a battery bank to 100%, or delete (remove) the camera from the Eufy app itself (thus removing the usability of the security device).
Anker, PLEASE prioritize this and fix it. I see several solutions:
Send notifications only when minimum charge rate reaches: [x%], selectable by the owner (I’d set mine to 20%, not 67%, for example)
Disable notifications for charge-related events
Send maximum of ‘n’ charge-related notifications per-hour/day
Set maximum threshold of notifications (per camera) to be sent, before they’re muted by default (eg: 100 max)
So far, as I’ve typed this message, I’ve received over 200 notifications from just 1 of my cameras which sits at 65%.
