Eufy Edge Security System offers better AI, solar-powered cameras
Amazon recently unveiled several new security cameras, and now Eufy has decided to join in the fun. The manufacturer has officially launched the Edge security systemwhich includes eufyCam 3 cameras as well as a central hub that offers enhanced AI for more accurate identification of people, animals and other objects that walk through its field of view.
The entire setup is powered by the new HomeBase 3. This is where the self-learning AI sits, allowing the system to accurately catalog different motion events into the appropriate 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 appropriate alert and catalog the video for future reference.
HomeBase 3 comes with 16GB of internal storage, although you can expand it up to 16TB with an external drive if needed. In total, Eufy claims that’s enough space to save up to 60 years of footage. And unlike many security systems, you don’t need a monthly subscription to store or access your data.
The Edge Security System bundle is available today and includes the HomeBase 3 and two eufyCam 3 cameras for $550. Future updates will allow the Edge security system to support other Eufy products (such as Video Smart Lock, Video Doorbell Dual, and Floodlight Cam 2 Pro).
For now, you’ll have to make do with the eufyCam 3, which is a surprisingly well-equipped camera. Not only does it offer 4K image capture and infrared and color night vision, it comes with a built-in battery and built-in solar panels to help keep it charged. There’s also a two-way audio system and a 100-lumen projector.
Depending on your specific needs, the Edge security system seems like a great option. You’ll want to check out our roundups of the best home security cameras and best home security systems for comparison, but Eufy’s latest option is certainly enticing.
