Not as good as the previous deal with Supercheapauto but i think you can price beat with OW to bring down the price to $250.
I have one of these and im pretty disappointed. Returned the first one since it stopped charging after about 2 months. Second one now runs out of battery without sending a notification so I am not aware its not working.
But is it still better than ring?
Is it worth the $40 a year in subscription costs over something that requires no payment?
It's pretty good otherwise I guess. I avoided ring for that reason.
No experience with Ring, but as per previous response, I wouldn't pay for a subscription when this seems to work fine.
My experience has been great so far (have had it for about 3 months) - battery has only dropped by one bar in that time - quite surprised by how well it is holding up. Have about 6-8 alerts a day, but sheltered from the street, so don't get motion activation from cars, etc.
Fairly responsive once someone presses the doorbell or motion is detected - I get the alerts to my phone almost immediately.
The only thing I can't get to work consistently is Google streaming to TV - it just keeps going to Youtube and searching for doorbell - pretty useless, but realistically, not something I would do often - would be nice if it worked though.
anyone has suggestion of good relatively cheap door bell ?
no need camera thing just bell, but wireless
and the battery on the bell/push part is AAA or AA not the expensive ones
Before I bought my eufy, I just had a wireless doorbell I picked up from the dollar store/Bunnings. I think it was about $7-10. Works exactly as expected i.e. rings when someone presses the doorbell (you can change the volume and pick from about 6 different chime tones) and I only ever change the battery in the ringer once every 1-2 years and have never changed the battery in the part that sits outside the door and I've had it for over 6 years.
the transmitter uses A23 battery ? and this battery last 1-2 yeas? really?
and the receiver pluged into power socket, right?
The transmitter (I'm assuming this is the part outside the door with the press button?) i believe is A23 - I've never changed this battery before and I've had the doorbell for about 6 years already. The receiver (the bit that makes the ding dong sound that sits in my house) is AA or AAA battery (can't recall unless I bring it down off the shelf) I only change every 1-2 years. It isn't plugged into any power socket as it runs off battery.
Below comment just reminded me, it is a HPM model so most likely I bought it from Bunnings.
@tokziktigah: hmm weird how come mine (with A23) last for months only. maybe dud battery but its broken anyway so i cant test.
ok will get that HPM then. even better with AA/AAA on the receiver as i can position anywhere.
If you dont need the bells and whistles :)
Then this should do fine.
The Receiver chime uses AA batteries, but the transmitter button uses a A23 battery (comes with it and can find in woolies/coles or amazon)
Dont know of any transmitters that use standard AA/AAA batteries, they are usually the coin battery type
A23 battery that is exactly what i am trying to avoid. i had similar kit before and the battery only last couple months. and A23 are expensive
i prefer AAA/AA i have eneloops for it
can we just get the bell only? will it work without the base? what will i be missing out ?
eufy Video Doorbell 2K Add On Only (T8210CW1) at The Good Guys Commercial for $211 (Combo $296)
I don't think it will work without the base though. The doorbell only is for if you already have homebase+security cameras, etc.
yeah the google said cannot, needs a base
