Note: It’s necessary to set up the HomeBase and cameras on the app before you mount the cameras outdoors.

Installing the eufy Security App

  • Download the eufy Security App Download the eufy Security app from the App Store (iOS devices) or Google Play (Android devices).

Setting Up the System

Log in or sign up

  • If you have a eufyLife or eufyHome account, you can login to the eufy Security app using the same login information.
  • However, if you are new to eufy, please sign up for a new account first and then log in.

System Setup

  • Follow the onscreen instructions to add your eufy Security devices. Always start with the HomeBase, then eufyCam or sensor; eufyCam cameras and sensors can be purchased separately.
  • You will be able to use eufyCam’s live view feature once it has been successfully added to the system; sensors will also appear in the device when successfully added.
  • Make sure the devices are working properly before mounting them to your desired spot.

Note: HomeBase and eufyCam are not fully charged when shipping out of the factory (to ensure the safety during transportation). It is recommended to fully charge the HomeBase and eufyCam before start using them.

Charging eufyCam

  • eufyCam does not come fully charged. It is recommended that you fully charge eufyCam before mounting it to your desired spot.
  • To charge the camera, use the provided micro-USB charging cable to connecteufyCam to the camera charging port on the backside of the HomeBase. The camera LED indicator will blink white while charging. Charging a camera from 0% to 100% takes approximately 4 hours; it will take longer if you charge thecamera via a universal 5V USB charger.

Mounting the Camera Outdoors

  • You can mount eufyCam to your selected outdoor location once you have successfully added it to your list of devices in the eufy Security app.

1. Here are some things to consider when looking for a good spot to mount your eufyCam:

  • Mount your camera in a spot that has a clear view of what you want to surveil.
  • Use the “Mounting Guide” function, found at the end of the setup process or under Camera Settings > Mounting Guide, to test the wireless signal strength of eufyCam at the location you wish to mount the camera. Make sure the location has a strong wireless signal strength so that your camera stays connected to the HomeBase. Move the camera as close to the HomeBase as possible if the wireless signal strength is weak.

  • Hang eufyCam between the recommended mounting height of 7-10 ft (2-3 m) above the ground. This height gives eufyCam a wide fieldof- view and maximizes the detection range of the motion sensor of eufyCam.
  • Avoid placing eufyCam under direct sunlight.
  • Use the secure outdoor mount to secure eufyCam in outdoor environments.

2. Outdoor camera installation

  • Drill holes with a 15/64 in (6 mm) drill bit in your desired spot and then insert the anchors into the holes; anchors are necessary for walls that are made out of hard materials such as concrete, brick, or stucco.
  • Screw the base of the secure outdoor mount onto the wall. Fasten the ball bracket of the secure outdoor mount to the base of the secure outdoor mount.
  • Fasten eufyCam to the secure outdoor mount and adjust the viewing angle by checking the live stream feed in the eufy Security app.

Mounting the Camera Indoors

Indoor camera installation:

1. You can stick the camera directly to a metal surface (Any flat surface made out of iron).

2. You can use the indoor mount to mount the camera:

  • Drill a hole in your desired spot. Use the included anchor if it’s drywall and fasten the hook at your desired spot.
  • Hang the indoor mount on the hook.
  • Attach eufyCam to the indoor mount and adjust the viewing angle by checking the live stream feed in the eufy Security app.

Installing the Sensor

  • Place the sensor on a door or window frame inside your home. Use the adhesive strip on the sensor or screws provided to mount the sensor. Close the door or the window and place the sensor magnet on the edge of the door or window.

  • Make sure the gap between the sensor and the sensor magnet is less than 1.6 in (4 cm) when the door or window is closed. The bottom of the sensor magnet should align with the bottom of sensor.


1. Why did the device setup process fail?

  • Make sure your smartphone and HomeBase are connected to the same wireless router.
  • Make sure eufyCam or the sensor is in the same room HomeBase is in during the setup process.
  • Make sure you follow the onscreen instructions during the setupprocess.

2. Why did eufyCam miss recording some events?

  • eufyCamutilizes a passive infrared (PIR) sensor to detect motion from moving objects that emit body heat. Only moving objects that enter the PIR sensor’s detection zone will trigger eufyCam to start recording.
  • If eufyCam is placed behind a glass or a weatherproof box, the PIR sensor will not be able to detect moving objects. Make sure there are no obstacles or transparent materials placed in front of eufyCam.

3. Why am I receiving so many false alerts?

  • Check to see if youenabled eufyCam’s Human Detection feature, which ensures eufyCam will send you an alert only when it detects humans on your property. To enable this feature, go to Camera Settings Motion Detection and tap the Enable / Disable toggle switch.
  • You may lower the level of sensitivity to reduce the range of the motion sensor, so that objects at further distances won’t trigger the camera. To set the level of sensitivity, go to Camera Settings Motion Detection.

4. How can I extend eufyCam’s battery life?

  • Make sure the wireless signal strength to the HomeBase is good.
  • Shorten the video recording time.
  • Lower the quality videos are recorded in.
  • Lower the sensitivity level of the PIR sensor.

5. Why do I experience significant delays when I watch a live-stream feed ?

  • There are several factors that can cause delays when watching a livestream feed, such as how fast the Internet speed on your smartphone is, if the upload speed of HomeBase is less than 1Mbps, and if the signal strength between eufyCam and HomeBase is low.
  • Check to see if your smartphone has a strong cellular or Wi-Ficonnection. Make sure your phone has strong cellular signal or isconnected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
  • If your Internet upload speed is under 1Mbps and you cannot upgrade the speed, try lowering the quality videos are recorded in.
  • If the signal strength on the camera is weak, try to mount closer to the HomeBase or move the HomeBase closer to eufyCam.

6. How do I grant eufyCam viewing access to other users?

  • Owners 0can grant eufyCam viewing access to other users. They can view at anytime on their phones.
  • First, the new user will have to download the EufySecurity app to their smartphone and then create a eufy account or sign into an existing account. Then, the owner must go to Grant Access in their EufySecurity app’s menu and enter the new user’s eufy account information to send an invite.

7. Can I add camera or sensor to the system?

  • Yes, the system supports up to 16 cameras and 16 entry sensors.Please check the region code on the bottom of your HomeBase before purchasing add-on camera or add-on sensor. On the bottom it will show “Region A” or “Region B”. Please purchase the add-on device according to the region code of your HomeBase.
