Eufy Security launches first 4G security camera
Eufy Security, Anker Innovations’ smart security brand, has announced the launch of the Starlight Camera, its first 4G-enabled smart security camera.
According to the brand, the Starlight camera is perfect for use in “Wi-Fi-challenged” areas including homes located on large properties and in rural areas, as well as farms, hunting areas, construction sites, on mobile homes and other large vehicles, and in and around warehouses.
Eufy Security General Manager, Frank Zhu, explains that this is because the 4G Starlight integrates 4G connectivity into a powerful 2K camera with local data storage and best-in-class battery life.
The Eufy Security 4G Starlight Camera is available for purchase today in the US for $249 or $269 with the solar panel mount. It is available for purchase starting today on eufylife.com and Amazon.com.
The camera will be available in mid-May in the United Kingdom for £249 and in Germany for €249.
The UK version of the 4G Starlight Camera will be compatible with 4G service from several carriers including Vodafone, EE, O2 and Three, while the Germany version will be compatible with 4G service from several carriers including Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Vodafone and Telefonica/O2.
Eufy Security says its 4G Starlight Camera is the first 4G security camera designed with 2K resolution and a night sensor to allow users to see colours in ultra-dark environments without needing a separate spotlight. The camera’s powerful 5MP lens lets users spot the smallest details while monitoring their homes and property day or night, the company claims.
The 4G Starlight Camera also includes an 8GB Enhanced Multimedia Card (eMMC) for local data storage with no subscription fees. As with all Eufy Security devices, onboard data is safe and secure using 256-bit encryption, the company adds.
In the United States, the 4G Starlight Camera is compatible with an AT&T data-only SIM card (sold separately). Users’ homes and property will be under constant monitoring on their smartphone or tablet with powerful 4G connectivity.
The 4G Starlight Camera provides long-lasting power thanks to an integrated battery that supplies up to three months of standby service (2X the battery life of typical 4G cameras). Users can also take advantage of an optional 2.6W solar panel that can continuously power the camera with six hours of direct sunlight each day.
Compared with most 4G security cameras which only have motion detection, the eufy Security 4G Starlight Camera provides human detection AI, which helps reduce false alarms by up to 95% and provides 99% image accuracy. Additionally, users can adjust the camera’s detection sensitivity by setting activity zones through the eufy Security app and receive real-time alerts when motion is detected. The mobile app, available for iOS and Android, delivers a daily motion detection report of notable events.
