The number of home security systems available on the market today is immense, and there is a wide range of possible features from a simple exterior sonic alarm to intricate systems that send a push notification to your mobile device in the event an intruder sets their sights on your humble abode. Regardless of which product offering you select the end game is the same: security systems help to ease our minds while we are away from home. eufy recently joined the already crowded home security market space with their EverCam via their Kickstarter campaign, which has raised $1,055,710 so far, surpassing the initial $50,000 goal, and there are 57 days until the campaign closes.

The EverCam is designed with wireless freedom at the forefront. There are no power cables, no need for wall outlets and certainly no need to drill any holes. This allows consumers to install the EverCam wherever they darn well see fit.
Next-Level Battery Life
eufy partnered with Anker with the aim of providing the longest battery life in the industry. Said partnership resulted in the EverCam’s ability to run for 365 days (3 years standby!) per charge when actively monitoring a high traffic area such as your front door or backyard pool…not lying dormant in a zero-traffic area such as the attic.
95% Fewer False Alarms
The EverCam employs a three-step scanning and filtering process to reduce the number of false alarms, which in turn curbs unnecessary smartphone notifications. Once you have registered your family and friends as trusted faces, EverCam will determine if an approaching object is someone you trust or an unwanted intruder.
The 140° wide-angle lens provides a panoramic view, spanning from your driveway to the front door—with no spots missed—making it ideal for catching people walking past or towards your home. Top-of-the-line Sony Exmor sensor combines with the large f2.2 aperture to offer around-the-clock Full HD surveillance, recording sharp and bright video during the day, plus crisp and clear Night Vision footage in the evening.
Straight Up Pricing
$329 – That’s the total cost for a two-camera set and a 30-day video history review for a full year. EverCam is a genuine one-time purchase that unifies sound security with customer convenience. eufy really differentiates their product from the rest of the industry by not requiring customers to pay a monthly subscription rate for cloud-based storage. Since EverCam records to local storage (included 16GB microSD card) and you can access the footage via your smartphone. Yup, the cost of storage is really $0.
Secure Local Storage
Odds are that you don’t want just anyone sifting through your data. If so, the EverCam has you covered with AES 128-bit encryption. In order to view your footage, the microSD card must be inserted into the Base Station to which it is registered and you must be logged on to the account associated with said Base Station.
The always-active accelerometer detects any unplanned movement and is ready to greet the cause of any forcible movement with a 100-decibel siren.
In the event of a power outage, the Base Station operates on auxiliary power for two days to ensure recording capabilities and siren protection.
EverCam thrives on HybridWave, a dual-natured technology that connects via the low-frequency wireless spectrum while on standby and standard Wi-Fi while transmitting. This combo ensures frugal power consumption (up to 70% less than other options) and a reliable connection when active.
Constructed from cutting-edge ASA composite material, which offers unrivaled strength and protection against the elements, EverCam works perfectly indoors and outdoors. Whether it’s raining, a freezing -4°F (-20°C) winter or scorching 122°F (50°C) summer, EverCam will keep watch over your home.
