Eufy’s new floodlight camera with 360-degree pan and tilt is the ultimate watch guard

In keeping itself competitive in the landscape, smart home maker Eufy today announced four brand-new cameras for its outdoor lineup. According to Eufy General Manager Frank Zhu, “Security is not a one-size-fits-all solution.” These four camera options seek to provide different choices of protection for different users.

The first camera is the Eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro. This camera features an impressive 360-degree pan and tilt feature, much like the Eufy Indoor Cam 2K Pan and Tilt, that allows it to see all the way around it. The camera uses artificial intelligence (A.I.)-based human detection that will automatically lock on and track anyone that passes its field of view. It also has built-in secure storage options.

The onboard floodlight can produce over 3,000 lumens of light. The floodlight’s color can also be adjusted from 3,000 K warm light to bright, illuminating light around 5,700 K. The floodlight can automatically activate when motion is detected or can be turned on and off manually through a smart assistant. The Eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro holds an IP67 rating and has a 100-decibel alarm that can be triggered to startle and scare away unwanted visitors.

The other three cameras in the announcement are all part of Eufy’s SoloCam lineup. All the cameras in this lineup connect straight to Wi-Fi and feature 8GB of onboard storage. Unlike the EufyCam, none of the devices in the SoloCam lineup require a hub, which means one less thing to set up and worry about for users. Who wants to connect a hub in order for these cameras to work properly? These cameras also operate on batteries and can provide surveillance for up to four months on a single charge. They have night vision up to 25 feet away.

There are three unique models in the SoloCam lineup. The standard SoloCam E20/E40 cameras come in 1080p and 2K resolutions, respectively. The SoloCam L20/L40 Spotlight cameras also come in a 1080p version and a 2K version, respectively, and include a 600-lumen flashing spotlight and a 90-decibel siren. And finally, there’s the SoloCam S40 Solar, which is a 2K solar-powered camera that sets itself apart from the rest of the lineup. Thanks to its solar panel, it can operate indefinitely without the need to recharge.

The SoloCam 1080p Essential and 2K Essential will be available for purchase in June for $100 and $130, respectively. The SoloCam 1080p Spotlight and 2K Spotlight will be available in July for $150 and $170, while the SoloCam 2K Solar Light will be available in August for $200. The Eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro will be available in July for $300.

Anker finally admits to Eufy security camera issues
Eufy Floodlight Camera 2 Pro turned on and installed on side of building.

Anker, the parent company of Eufy, has officially admitted that its line of security cameras was not as secure as previously thought. Its products were said to use end-to-end encryption for recorded video footage -- but it turns out that wasn’t always the case.

In late 2022, it was discovered that Eufy cameras had a bit of a privacy issue. Using the VLC media player, a Eufy user managed to access video through the cloud that was supposedly only stored locally. There were also reports as far back as 2021 of folks viewing camera feeds of strangers, although Eufy chalked that up to a bug that impacted only a small number of products.

Blink Wired Floodlight Camera offers heaps of features and an affordable price tag
The Blink Wired Floodlight installed outside.

Blink, an Amazon-owned company that produces a wide variety of smart home gadgets, today announced the Blink Wired Floodlight Camera. The affordable device clocks in at just $99 yet manages to offer 1080p video capture, 2,600 lumens of LED lighting, motion detection, and several other premium features.

While Blink’s catalog is comprised of several indoor and outdoor cameras, this is the company’s first true floodlight. Previously, homeowners needed to purchase a Floodlight Mount for the Blink Outdoor Camera, and even then they would only benefit from 700 lumens of LED lights. The Blink Wired Floodlight Camera, meanwhile, is a standalone product that doesn’t require a secondary purchase -- pick it up for $99, and you’re ready for installation.

The Eufy Edge Security System offers better recognition chops and solar-powered cameras
A eufyCam 3 installed on a wall.

Amazon recently revealed several new security cameras, and now Eufy has decided to join in on the fun. The manufacturer has officially launched the Edge Security System, which includes the eufyCam 3 cameras along with a central hub that offers improved AI for more accurate identification of people, animals, and other objects that wander into its field of view.

The entire setup is powered by the new HomeBase 3. This is where the self-learning AI is housed, allowing the system to accurately catalog different motion events into the proper folder. For example, the Edge Security System will be able to tell you if the person approaching your home is a friend, family member, or stranger, then send you the proper alert and catalog the video for future reference.
