Eufy, the Anker-owned smart home brand, announces a new SoloCam series of battery-powered security cameras that have local storage and are designed to work without connecting a separate hub. The new series includes two “Essential” (standard) cameras, two spotlight cameras and one solar-powered camera.
Standard and spotlight SoloCams will be offered in 1080p or 2K resolution models, and Eufy says you can get a four-month battery on a single charge. All cameras also offer 8 GB of local storage, which Eufy estimates will include at least two months of video.
You can pre-order all the models for SoloCam on Wednesday, but they will be sent out at different times in the next couple of months. Here are the availability dates and prices for each of the cameras, shared by Eufy.
- SoloCam 1
- SoloCam 2K Essential (E40): out at the end of June for $ 129.99
- SoloCam 1080p Spotlight (L20): Available via “Online Channels” in Mid-July for $ 149.99
- SoloCam 2K Spotlight (L40): Available through “dealer partners” in late July for $ 169.99
- SoloCam Solar (S40): Available mid-August for $ 199.99
Eufy launches the cameras after a security incident in May that allows some users of the company’s security cameras to watch video from other users’ homes. In an apology, Eufy said the problem occurred during a software update and that 712 people were affected.
