eufyCam 2C Pro Review

Our Verdict – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The eufyCam 2C Pro is wireless so you can use it anywhere inside and outside your house or office. Best of all, there is no monthly fee, making it the best product for those who are on a tight budget.

All of this makes it the best CCTV camera out of all we’ve tested so far. It’s not too expensive, can use without a subscription, and it’s easy to set up. And the quality of this camera is surprising too. 

A Eufy 2C Pro CCTV system will give you peace of mind. Once your system is installed and set up, you’ll feel more secure and safe. Why? Because you’ll know that the people who approach your home are on camera and can be identified before you open the door.

At night, the Eufy camera can pick up an intruder as easily as during the daytime which gives you time to turn on the lights and phone the police if necessary.

Eufy 2 C Pro Cameras are an effective deterrent against burglars because it not only shows that the occupant is serious about security but as it’s also recording there is a chance that they will be identified.

Do I need more than one camera?

It’s up to you. You can buy one Eufy 2C Pro, but two is a minimum if you want to make secure the front and back of your property. If you want more, you can of course purchase a Eufy add-on camera. More cameras mean you have a larger surveillance system covering a wider section of your property. The Eufy base station can take up to 16 cameras.

What does 2k resolution mean?

The standard resolution on many home CCTV systems is 1080p. A 2K resolution means it’s about twice as clear as a standard 1080p system. That’s a sharp, easy to identify an image.

Does it have to be wired into my electricity box?

No. The Eufy 2C Pro is connected to your router, or you can use the WIFI connection. That means the cameras don’t need wires. They can be easily installed using a drill and the wall plugs and screws which come in the box with the rest of the camera kit. The system is battery operated.

How long does the battery last?

The Motion Detector

Won’t the notifications be annoying when animals pass the motion detector?

Not if you switch on Human Only detection. This ensures that the 2C Pro camera will only activate when a Person’s face or body shape is detected.
