Hi Everyone! Thanks for the hunting the EverCam! 🙌 We all want to feel safe, especially in our own homes. Our team set out to create something fast and easy to install that can protect your home and family. But, everything I found was so complicated and expensive. So at eufy, we came up with the EverCam - a wirefree security cam with 365-Days of battery life: 👉A wirefree and fast installation 👉No hidden cost with an one-time fee only 👉Long-lasting battery life by utilizing advanced battery technology from Anker 👉AI capabilities that can save more batteries and have human recognition features by using deep neural networks. We’ve received a great deal of positive response and feedback from our backers. We’re on a mission to make everyone feel safe. Thank you for supporting us!

@larrylynn1 What makes you different from Blink cameras? I don't see many differences other than features like AI based recognition but then that doesn't seem anything appealing for me to consider upgrading. I'd love to understand this more as I'm looking to add some more cameras. P.S. Blink cams are slim in design, wire-free battery based (they claim 1 year life too but it failed ofc) and also no subscription kinda model too. So it does the job well.

@irazasyed The main difference is in the quality of video (EverCam 1080P and Blink 720P) and length of battery life and the fact that EverCam has a night vision option. And also the facial recognition technology to avoid excessive false alarms. Here is the detailed comparison of the two products: BLINK Spec VS EverCam: *720P resolution (EverCam 1080P) * non-rechargeable AA lithium batteries(EverCam is rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery - 13400 mAh) *short Battery of total 40,000 seconds without night vision (EverCam is 110,000 seconds with night vision) * each system cloud storage for up to 7,200 total seconds of video or 1,440 five-second events (EverCam with 16GB local storage support 1 year of video on one camera, with 10 videos per day, 30 seconds each, 110,000 total 1080P seconds of Video, or 3,650 30 seconds events. also support expandable to 128GB Micro SD card) *only Mic(EverCam both speaker & Mic) *Normal angle lens (EverCam 140° super wide angle) *No human or face detection (EverCam support human and face detection, and facial recognistion ) *No anti-theft detection for camera(EverCam Support motion sensor triggered anti-theft detection ) *No siren(EverCam HomeBase has 100dB siren inside) *Not Support sensors expandable(EverCam support entry sensors in the same System) *Only plastic wall mount(EverCam has 1 magnetic mount and 1 metal screw mount) *No backup Battery in HUB(EverCam HomeBase Support 2 days backup Battery for Power off local Video storage and Siren alarm)

@larrylynn1 I love the idea but the slim profile of the Blink cameras is a must for my use case. If these had the same profile I would use them over Blink

As an Anker fan, I always love their innovative products. I can't wait to try this one and throw my old security camera away. Great innovation!

@fabricio_chan Thank you for your support.

@fabricio_chan Anker is great. I only use their batteries. Best around. That's how I know you're not bullshucksing us with the year claim.

I currently have an Arlo Pro 2, however I really dislike the $99 yearly charge for the cloud. This one seems like a great alternative.
Zhou Poppy
For someone who doesnt like installing, cables and such (like me) this one is perfect! Also love that they support local storage instead of the cloud!
Neal Pavelich
365 is cool, can setup on birthday or some holiday.

If it's magnetic, what's to stop it from getting stolen?
Larry Lynn
Maker
@antonybearpark There is a 100db siren that will sound as soon as someone attempts to take it., the camera will record t he whole incident as soon as it begins happening, and it will also alert you via your phone. And we also provide the metal screw mount, you can use it outdoors as you like.
Jon Moore
@antonybearpark @larrylynn1 or you can just put epoxy on the magnetic plate. #ifatreefalls
Jace Perry
@antonybearpark put barb-wire around the camera...
Karolina Geller
Very nice!

Local storage FTW! Just saw MKBHD tweet about Nest and their questionable premium cloud storage.
Asher Harris
Reminds me of those cameras in the book "The Circle"

The easiest surveillance camera to steal ever made!

@de_ascanio as @larrylynn1 said above: "There is a 100db siren that will sound as soon as someone attempts to take it., the camera will record t he whole incident as soon as it begins happening, and it will also alert you via your phone."

@de_ascanio And apart from the magnetic mount, we also provide metal screw mount. Magnetic mount is stable enough but you can use the metal screw mount for outdoor as you like.
Dan Dan
Looks interesting for indoors, but that mount won't survive city life outdoors. One rock thrown at it and it would fall off. I currently have Arlo, and it has pretty good battery life but it's because it doesn't run that often. I wonder how long battery life for this would last in a busy environment where it's trigger 10 times a day?
Ayush Chandra
@tostartafire I agree with you in this about the survival
Larry Lynn
Maker
@tostartafire For EverCam, the standard is 1 year of 1080P video on one camera, with 10 videos per day, each being 30 seconds, for a total of 110,000 seconds of motion-activated video and/or live video WITH night vision.
Larry Lynn
Maker
@tostartafire And we provide both magnetic mount and metal screw mount. Magnetic mount is stable enough but you can use the metal screw mount for outdoor as you like.
Dan Dan
@larrylynn1 Thanks for clarifying that.
Ayush Chandra
Great job 😊 Will check it out 😊

As a smart home hobbyist (SmartThings, Google Home, ZWave) compatibility with IFTTT, SmartThings, Google Home, is a must. I see it's a stretch goal - need that locked and loaded before I consider this a contender.
Larry Lynn
Maker
@tylerscochran we recently post an update that mentions: Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support will be available at the time of shipping. Apple HomeKit support is being planned for future development and we will keep you updated. IFTTT support is confirmed but will be available with a software update after shipping. For 3rd Party Home Automation Compatability, we’ve heard suggestions to include support for SmartThings, Wink, Home-Assistant.io, and Blue Iris. Currently, support for home automation is not in the pipeline. Due to limited development resources and our intent to meet the target ship date, we are focusing development on the features we originally set out to achieve and add on features that won’t impact our original objectives. Hope that helps.

Can't say...I would have to use it first.

Great cam

Just recently bought a house in need of this. Wanted to confirm when you guys ship if I go through Kickstarter? Great job by the way! Looks like an awesome product.

@kestasvv The shipment will be in September.

Can I get this camera sooner and how to support production?

@tech_hunter Thanks very much for your support. The shipment is meant to be in September. You can check our Kickstarter page for more information if you want.
Elicere Inc
Just can't get over the magnetic attachment. What if I throw a ball at it from the side. Or use a broom or shovel to jar it off from the side. I won't be on video at all. And, how do I charge it...not mentioned in video (i think)? Do I need to climb a ladder to take it down from my tree (if that is where I put it) so I can charge it inside. I really like the facial recognition and AI aspects though.
Lee Fuhr
@elicereinc Read up.
Aelia Yousaf
Looks like a promising product - two questions, can you attach 4 cameras (or more), and does it come in black?
Larry Lynn
Maker
@aelia_yousaf There can be up to 16 cameras that can be attached to a homebase. And I am sorry there is no plan for the black ones for now.
