In review: Eufy Smart Lock Touch & WiFi

While you’re no doubt familiar with the Anker brand (for their solid electronics, audio, and accessories), you may not be as familiar with their sub-brand eufy. The products there are focused more on things that are for the home – think stuff like robotic vacuums and security-focused items. I’ve had one of their video doorbells installed for awhile now, and recently tried out two of their smart lock products.

Now Funding: the eufy Security SmartDrop

Even before the global pandemic gave us second thoughts about leaving our homes, there was no denying that we were all buying things online more and more. While you could certainly have some things delivered to your office, by and large you’ve got things delivered to home. Which is why we’ve seen articles (and even videos) on package theft going on. Getting video of the perpetrator is one thing, but if you want to prevent it outright? Something like the eufy Security SmartDrop is where it’s at.

Keeping an eye on things with the Eufy Wireless Video Doorbell

Back at the start of the year, we brought you word of the soon-arriving Eufy Wireless Video Doorbell (and before that we talked about the wired version).

Welcome to the Gate smart lock – a front door smart lock that incorporates a traditional keyed deadbolt, multiple access keypad, person identification camera, and two-way audio system all in one. I’ve had this installed on my house for about 2 weeks now, and it’s been an interesting intro to smart home locks.

Coming soon – the Eufy wireless video doorbell

If you recall, back in November, we brought you word of the Eufy Video Doorbell, which we felt was vastly superior to the Ring offerings as it offered one crucial component – on-board storage for the video, meaning you own your data. One potential drawback in that product – for some renters and homeowners – was that it was a wired installation. Later this quarter we?ll see a wireless version of that doorbell hitting the market.

The eufyCam 2 sees through the dark

That’s right, friends – you no longer need to attack the darkness with magic missile (bonus internet points for you if you got the reference, friend). While Eufy is no stranger to camera systems, or embedding cameras in other products (like a doorbell or floodlight), they’ve got a new release coming up that looks pretty amazing for starting out monitoring your house from scratch – enter, the eufyCam 2.

Light up the night with the Eufy Smart Floodlight

Let?s keep the home security (and self-monitored) theme going, again with our friends from Eufy. Say you?ve already got a video doorbell installed, and now you?re interested to keep an eye on what?s going on out behind your house, or over by the garage. That?s where security lights come in handy, particularly those with motion detectors. But what if you could also wrap a camera in there as well? That?s precisely what the Eufy Smart Floodlight offers.

Knock Knock. Who?s there? The Eufy Video Doorbell will tell you!

When it comes to the many and varied things that you can hook into your home network (and automate to varying degrees), items related to home security have seen quite a bit of growth. These can be as simple as smart outlets controlling your lights on a schedule, to full-blown security systems. Somewhere in the middle of that is where we find the Eufy Video Doorbell.

Here’s a little story, all about how, counter-intel and bad password management turned Twitter upside down. This time, the story features Colleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy, wives of two footballers in the UK.
