  • Security systems are pretty important...especially nowadays when you have to keep your toilet

  • paper stash secure. But installing security systems is pretty complicated if you have

  • a wired system. Running data cables and wires through a house that's already built is pretty

  • difficult. Drilling through walls and patching walls isn't something I want to do right now.

  • So I did some research and found a company called Eufy by Anker that doesn't require

  • any of that complex installation procedure since it has a battery that lasts for 365

  • days. So I reached out to them and asked if they wanted to sponsor a video and they said

  • yes as long as I took one apart to show how it works from the inside...which is kind of

  • what we do around here. So this video is sponsored. You can get a 25% discount using the code

  • in the description.

  • And Eufy Security System doesn't just have cameras. It also has, you know, the whole

  • video doorbell thing, as well as a keypad and actual alarm system for your house. They

  • all interact seamlessly with each other. And I'll explain more in minute. But I think it's

  • time to install this thing and we should be able to do it in less than 3 minutes.

  • Lets get started.

  • [Intro]

  • So my favorite thing about this security system, besides the fact that it's easy to install

  • with no wires, is that there are also no mandatory monthly fees. It's a one-time purchase And

  • yeah, like I mentioned before, this is a full-fledged security system with alarms and a 2K resolution

  • video doorbell. But today we're going to be focusing on the 1080p high definition outdoor

  • security camera with their 365 day battery life. I'm curious to see how big the battery

  • actually is on the inside.

  • This box has 2 cameras and the base station. And you can see that both of the cameras have

  • a massively strong magnet on the back. There are 2 types of mounts that come in the box:

  • an indoor mount with just a curved ball looking thing where the camera can just magnetically

  • sit anywhere on that half circle. And the other outdoor mount which has a screw attachment.

  • This actually screws into the back of the camera to hold it in a fixed position. I'll

  • do a nighttime darkness test at the end of this video, but first let's see how this UV

  • cam 2 works from the inside.

  • Now, getting inside of a water-tight security camera is pretty difficult. There are 4 star-shaped

  • screws next to the microUSB charging port, which hopefully I'll only need to use that

  • port once a year. The super strong magnets in here make guiding my screwdriver rather

  • difficult. But once all those screws are out I can start working my way around the lens

  • of the camera. This thing is strongly glued shut and definitely not designed to come apart,

  • but that's never stopped us before.

  • After applying a ridiculous amount of pressure, I can finally pull the camera guts out of

  • the water-tight housing. And we get our first look at the large circular magnet at the base

  • of the camera. We can also see the charging port board, as well as a portion of the internal

  • battery. It looks like this thing is 13,000 milliamp hours.

  • The way this battery is able to last an entire year is that it's not recording consistently

  • 24/7. It sits in standby until it notices motion, you know, either a person moving or

  • some kind of motion inside of the activity zones you create. And then it turns on the

  • actual camera to send that footage or that highlight to the base station. So it's conserving

  • energy by only streaming when you manually want to check the footage or when it senses

  • something move. It should be able to handle 10 of these security captures every for 365

  • days without needing to recharge. But there's always that option of getting a super inexpensive

  • small microUSB solar panel and plugging into the camera permanently. Then you'll never

  • have to charge anything...ever.

  • Inside of the battery pack are four 18650 lithium cells, which coincidentally is the

  • same type of battery that Tesla was using in their electric cars. Except for instead

  • of 4 cells, Tesla's using like 7,000. But still, if it's good enough for Tesla, it's

  • good enough for my security camera.

  • After digging a bit deeper we can pull out the 1080p Sony camera sensor. And then what

  • I assume is the lower power in motion sensor that tells the camera when to start recording

  • or not. And of course there's also the massive speaker below that motion sensor for the alarm

  • and allows you to communicate through the camera. You know, for when people come to

  • steal your toilet paper you can be like, 'Hey, wait! No, don't do that' through the camera.

  • Finally we have the base station. Now I kind of forgot that I still need this thing to

  • do the night footage, so I really hope the base station still works when I put it back

  • together. After 4 screws are removed I can pull out the brains of the whole operation

  • with it's tall Wi-Fi antennas. This doesn't need to be plugged into the router all the

  • time. It can work on just Wi-Fi alone.

  • And under this massive heat sink we have a metal plate which covers the internal storage.

  • All of which, of course, is encrypted and none of which is ever stored on the Cloud.

  • I have read that the UV system has the ability to store footage on a NAS backup, so I'll

  • have to look into that some more. I do plan on buying more of these cameras. A hardwired

  • security system would have its perks of course, but I'm sure glad that now I don't have to

  • tear apart my house to install one.

  • Now let's go see how well this system works outside. Getting started just takes a few

  • seconds. I'll plug the base station into both power and my router. Then download the Eufy

  • Security App and pair the two together. Then to add a camera to my system I just press

  • one button on top of the camera [robot voice: 'Ready to add device'] when it's near the

  • base station. [Beeping]

  • And ...[robot voice: 'Device was added successfully.'].

  • Now we can see if it can really be installed in 3 minutes or not. But either way, it's

  • going to be a lot easier than running wires all throughout my house.

  • Installing the camera is actually pretty easy. There is a very convenient little white sticker

  • stencil that tells where two holes need to be drilled for that outside mount. Then I

  • can remove the sticker and screw in two screws... [Drilling sounds]...that hold the plastic

  • base to the exterior wall. Once that's secure the little ball mount gets clipped in and

  • the whole camera can screw into place. One cool thing about this camera is that if anyone

  • every tries to take or steal the camera itself, it triggers a 100 decibel alarm. [Alarm sounds]

  • This alarm can also be triggered manually. [Alarm sounds]

  • So this is what the audio and video sounds like from the camera. I'm about, I don't know,

  • 10 feet away or so, headed back towards the house. And the camera should auto detect human

  • faces as well as motion zones that you can set manually Kind of cool. So normally I would

  • install a security system a little bit lower than that, but even at that height it has

  • good resolution and I'm pretty clear. This is what the footage looks like from the 2K

  • resolution doorbell. Slightly higher resolution than the 1080p security cameras. This doorbell

  • has a 6 month battery, once again because it's not recording all the time, just when

  • it senses motion. It's nice that Eufy has designed a complete security system that doesn't

  • require monthly subscription or a complex installation.

  • Now I installed my camera underneath an eave so it would be a little bit protected against

  • the elements like snow, wind, water, all that stuff outside. But the camera itself is ip67,

  • so as long as it's not submerged underwater, it should be resistant to weather. And as

  • long as the cameras are placed within range of a base station, a base station can handle

  • 16 cameras, which is a lot of footage.

  • Now I've tried out other security systems in the past, ones that store all their information

  • on the Cloud, and I've always noticed anytime I try to access that information that it takes

  • forever for it to load on my phone. But since the Eufy is all located at one station on

  • my own Wi-Fi, I can access it relatively quickly, which is pretty beneficial if you want to

  • see exactly what set off the notification to your phone.

  • Here's what the Eufy camera looks like at night. There's a few lights on at my house

  • but it's 11pm and very dark outside. Obviously I'll have to wait a little bit and see how

  • long the battery lasts on this camera. I'll leave an update down in the comments after

  • a couple months or so. Either way, I'm super glad that I didn't have to tear down my house

  • to install a security system. Thanks to Eufy for sponsoring this video. If you have any

  • questions, leave them down in the comments. Come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter.

  • Thanks a ton for watching, I'll see you around.
