    Same price @ bunnings

      Aah didn't see that.

    • -2

      Can I return a Bunnings purchase during lockdown in Vic? Paid $199 on Thursday and collected today.

      • +14

        Honestly worth it for $10 and additional covid risk?

        • +18

          The short answer is “yes.” The long answer is “of course.”

          • +1

            @tharlow: Na, just disappointed I missed the recent $170 sale. I’ll stick with what I have. But I have a few other things to return…just wasn’t sure on the process.

      • Not sure about return but I did a swap of something. Just drove through the click and collect space and they swapped it with no questions asked.

      • +6

        Do you not value your time at all for a measly $10 return ?

        • +1

          Worth my time…
          Hmmmmmm - If I lived <100mtrs from store yes
          If I had to start the car - no

        • +1

          Yeah I’m very close and lockdown means time is no longer an issue! Otherwise I wouldn’t have even been aware of this :)

      • I returned some nails the other day, wrong size. Went to pick up the right size nails and asked if i could return and get a refund for the wrong size nails. All done and dusted in a couple mins.

  • I'm just starting with home security and wondering is this better than Arlo or new Google Nest Cams?

    • I been using eufy and I think it’s better than both. But I guess the closest competition is arlo, but I found eufy functionality better

  • +6

    Main advantage is no subscription and it has local storage. Nest cams don't have floodlight.

  • +1

    Super cheap can do the price beat I believe. Worth to try there

    • +3

      I rather get it from Amazon, I don't have good experiences with SCA.

      • What kinds of experiences have you had? I had coil whine in the Home Base power unit of one of my sets, they let me just exchange it out even though they couldn't hear it themselves.

  • +1

    looks like Oculus 3

    Can’t this be remotely activated as a normal floodlight too?

    • Yes it can through the app

        "Hey Google…. Scare the sh!t out of the kids!"

  • Got a few of them at my parents, really good.

  • has anyone actually installed this by themselves ? is it easy to install ?

    • -1

      If you have an existing outdoor lifght that's covered eg: carport. Simple. But just to idiot proof it. Turn off the house power and then turn on the light switch for a few seconds to the old light (then turn it off and tape something over the switch) you are replacing before removing it. Tape the meter box closed with a big note on the door if you are worried about people turning the power back on. Might be worth while if you haven't spliced wires together before to have a few practice goes on some other wires before committing to cutting cables at the light. Let YouTube be your friend.

        Please don't do this. Electrical work needs to be done by a licensed electrician. Please don't risk your own life and lives of others by messing around with electricity.

        • -25

          Rubbish. You have the right to do your own electrical work at your own risk.

          • +21

            @bOngOCaT: No you don't… Electrical work in Australia must be performed by an electrician. It's 100% illegal otherwise and if the house burned down or something than it's possible you'd be prosecuted.

            I know it may seem unfair or whatever but I think it's a good rule as it allows anyone who buys a house to know that "b0ng0CaT" hasn't been rewiring the house in his spare time to his own "standards".

            • +11

              @brad1601: The ridiculous thing is:
              - Electricians are often apprentices and for example my recent new build had over 10 issues I picked up, some of which were fire hazards.
              - Electrical engineers for example are MORE qualified, but thanks to the electricians monopoly and requirement for apprenticeships in Australia, they legally can't do any work on their own homes.
              - By making it illegal, people who do want to do simple things themselves aren't provided with suitable education (i.e. they do it themselves AND don't know what they're doing).
              - Most US states allow DIY electrical work on their own home, some require a review by a qualified electrician

              I accept your statement that it's not legal, but I disagree that it's not legal due to SAFETY. It's not legal because of stupid regulations.

          • -1

            @bOngOCaT: You most definitely can not, it's illegal and extremely dangerous
            Electrician is a licensed trade and doing unlicensed work like so can have a you a hefty fine and god forbid if something went wrong because you can not issue a certificate of electrical safety would void any insurance claim
            All because you didn't want to cough up the $200 Max that it would take to install this flood light
            Your advice is irresponsible and under no circumstances should be taken into account

            • +4

              @Cainop: Yes it's illegal and it's not worth your house burning down and it not being covered by insurance because of that. But doesn't mean it's hard or any more dangerous than a lot of house hold maintenance.

          • @bOngOCaT: You also have the right to void any insurances that might have covered you in terms of burning your house down.

        • +30

          Only in Australia. If you’re from anywhere else in the world you’re smart enough to change your own power points but not here.

          • +14

            @Sharp: Should be a short course or something you can do to get verified to do work on your own home at least. Instead of paying a sparkle $200 to change a light bulb. What grinds my gears is it could all be solved with insulated push connectors you can only remove from one side.

            • -14

              @dickiee: No worries, might just get a how to course on how to prescribe myself some medication, work in a salon dying someone's hair, little bit of tax work down the road for jo blo and change a shower mixer for little old mary, sure i can do them all, but am I licsensed to do them all? Did I do my apprenticeship in these and study 3 or 4 years to have some know it all undercut me potentially put someone at risk because I think i can do a better job
              Probably not, moral of the story, dont be cheap, if you are unqualified to do it, you should not be touching it
              Dont be like Terry, Terry is a tightass

              • +9

                @Cainop: Literally everything you said then is completely wrong. I don't prescribe my own medication but I sure as he'll wouldn't take anything without doing my own research on it first. Yes you can go to a salon and get your hair dyed and you can also do it yourself risk free. The quality might not be great but hey, practice makes perfect. Most people can do their own tax but sure if you have a lot of assets or a business a tax agent could be the right way to go. And changing a shower mixer? Sure you shouldn't be charging people if you aren't qualified but hey. Lil old Mary down the road would be pleased that you just saved her a few hundred bucks for a 5 minute job.

                You may not be licenced to do the work so you shouldn't charge to do it. You sure as shit shouldn't be doing it professionally.

                Oh and you do realise this is Ozbargain right? We are all Terry's or we wouldn't be here.

                Moral of the story. How many electricians does it take the change a lightbulb? One. +call out fee +minimum charge 2hrs +50% mark up on the bulb +certification.

              • +4

                @Cainop: Oh and further more. I know a guy who just finished his masters in engineering. Got really good grades so I reckon we get him to build a bridge. He hasn't done it before but hey. He's got the bit of paper. That's all you need right?

                Apprentiships and Degrees mean shit. You can breeze through either if you do the work. Doesn't mean you are good at your job.

                Ever had a shit meal at a restaurant? But the cook finished his apprenticeship so it should be way better than what you can cook at home right?

              • +3

                @Cainop: Meh you can do a lot of your own electrical work in New Zealand… Though when comparing both countries the NZers these days do seem a bit more intelligent than us ;)

            • +4

              @dickiee: I'd be interested in doing a short course to get qualified for home electrical work. Do you know of any that exist? Obviously the shorter the course the better… I just want to know enough to know how to safely do electrical work in my own house, nothing more.

              • @jarrod: If you wanna do your own home electrical you do not want a short course 😂

              • @jarrod: They don't exist unfortunately. If they did exist I'd hope you would have to get recertified every 2 years or so. I had to do my EWP ticket for work the other week and I find it nuts that you can do a 2 day course and then drive a mobile platform 14mtrs or more in the air. The worst part was our trainer told us the answers to the test and even had us fill out the dates where his signature should go so he didn't have too.

                Our boilermakers at work have to keep a log book which is signed off by our first class senior welder to certain Australian standards they are tested and qualified too otherwise their certification for eg: structural steel welding expires after 6 months and have to be recertified again. I think it should be the same for any high risk work.

      • Unfortunately not in Australia. Maybe because our mains are 240V and twice as likely to kill you thank the USA.

        • +3

          It's the amps that kill you not the volts. And you need twice as many amps in 110v as you do 240v for the same application so 240v is actually safer.

          *edit - neither is safe. It only takes 900ma to kill yourself. 240v can carry more amps so it is more dangerous. All depends on the application.

          • @dickiee: Fair enough :)

            Also I have an electrician mate called Dickee so I trust your opinion.

          • +1

            @dickiee: /facepalm

          • @dickiee: only 900ma? Is that a typo?

            • @Rogerwilco: Actually it's a lot lower. 100-200ma is all it takes theoretically but 900ma is closer to it Actually killing you. Look at it like you can be killed in a car crash doing 40k an hour but you are much more likely to be killed in an accident at 100k an hour.

      Queue up comments that insurance is now void, do not pass go, do not collect $100 go straight to jail.

      If your house burns down because of dodgy wiring then it would really suck.

      • +1

        I'm not sure on this one because in WA you don't need a certificate if it's repair work apparently but you do if it's a new install. So if you broke your old floodlight and replaced it does that constitute as repair or a new install?

  • +4

    I'd imagine you need an electrician to get the power to it/connect it safely

    • +1

      This costs a bit, I had my security camera which is PoE yet still cost me around $700 for 4 camera + nvr set up. I assume it may be little more if it involved electric work.

  • +3

    I have this in black. Easy to install (I replaced existing floodlight with this) and is very simple to operate. No ongoing costs. Videos are really clear. I have now spotted possums and bandicoots that were recorded in the middle of the night!!

    • +2

      I’d imagine that the surprise of 2500 lumens in your face in the middle of the night might initiate a sudden evacuation of the bowels… for a possum or bandicoot.

  • +1

    Bought a black one of these for 150 at super cheap a few weeks ago. Terrific bit of gear

  • Can we put SD card in this?

    • It has a inbuilt 4gb memory I think. No sd card slot.

      • So designed to record 15min loops?

        • It is typically set up to start recording and store when motion is detected, you can choose length of clip (up to 120 sec), interval trigger and notification type. If you go to the live camera there is a recording button and if pressed it will record and store the video in the photos on your phone/tablet but recording stops when you close the app.

  • +1

    So if we have outdoor power outlet, this is ready to go just plug the cord? Or needing hardwire?

    • +1

      No it isn't plug n play. There are hardwired terminals at the back of the unit to which you would wire AC cable to.

      • Oh ok. A bit too much hassle for me then. Thanks

        • +1

          It's not hard. The brightness of the lights are worth the expense of getting it installed.

  • I am wondering people prefer wired security camera setup or wireless. If someone is building a house, should he get cabling done for wired or wireless (wifi) is the future?

    • +3

      Wired for sure

    • +2

      Wireless has many draw backs if you can go wired do so
      Run ethernet cables to where you want cameras and terminate them back to where you want you nvr

      • -1

        Not if you have a good wireless network setup using mesh routers

      • Thanks @cletusb and @julz. Also do you recommend placing nvr and screen in garage or any other place like wir? Do you guys prefer to place the monitor in front of you visible easily or you rely more on the App to view it on phone and would rather have screen and nvr in garage?

        • My setup is 3x cameras (front, garage, backyard) with nvr/router/nbn all in garage.

          In garage I've got nvr hooked up via hdmi to a spare monitor, but I also have it setup to remote view from my android tv in loungeroom, and on my phones/ipads.

  • +1

    There is a difference in wired or battery operated and wired or wifi/wireless.

    I would definitely get wired security system with wifi enabled if building a house.

  • mark. need this next year.

  • Can this be connected to the eufy bell’s storage base ?

  • Does this need the hub?

    • No

  • +1

    These are great for the money but the software doesn't work properly, the detection zones specifically dont work at all.

    • Have you ried turning up the motion detection sensitivity to 5? Mine now detects people walking past the driveway which as about 15+ meters from the camera.

      • I had to turn it right down as the light was coming on every time a car drove past my house even though the detection zones was only on my driveway.

        "AI" for human detection would likely make this thing much more useful so it didn't get triggered by cars constantly going past but its cheap so it gets a pass.

  • Where would you normally put this?
    Just above garage door?
    Any other suggestions?

    • Facing backyard or walkway

    • Mine was replacing a driveway light which was in between the garage doors.

  • +1

    Does anyone know if these detect heat or simply light up if there is any kind of movement detected ie bush blowing in the breeze?

  • +2

    Found this valuable comment from Amazon by Jo NSW, hope it will helpful to some.
    "Overall, we're very happy with our purchase of this Eufy Security Floodlight Camera… it does what we need it to do - keep an eye on our driveway and front yard (without paying for subscriptions), and lights up the whole area nicely when motion is detected. An excellent deterrent to porch pirates, thieves, and trespassers.

    Advantages:
    * 2 × nice bright floodlights.
    * up to 4 "activity zones" can be set.
    * mains powered (no recharging batteries).
    * easy for the electrician to install.
    * no need for any "home base" station - can be used as a stand-alone device.
    * good (& adjustable) sensitivity to catch movement earlier.
    * nice wide angle to take in more of the yard.
    * no subscription service needed to access past events footage - this is one of the main reasons we chose Eufy above any of the other brands… we believe that you shouldn't have pay anything extra to view your footage history, especially after paying a couple hundred dollars (or more) for a security camera.
    * integrates well with Google Home - voice control works well to turn on/off the lights, cast to a Google hub or TV Chromecast.

    Areas for improvement:
    * no AI for "human detection" only - our other Eufy products have this handy function (which filters out any animal/car/wind activity), but not this floodlight camera.
    * no "privacy zones" function to block out the neighbours - you have to use the "activity zones" to filter out neighbour activity.
    * distance picture quality not as good as our other Eufy cameras, but definitely adequate.
    * would be handy to be able to link this camera to our existing home base, so that we could store more footage, but it has a decent 3Gb of available storage.

    Can you DIY installation? No.
    Would I buy it again? Yes.
    Does it function well? Yes.
    Is it perfect? No.
    Is it worth the money? Yes."

  • i have a couple of Arlo units, cant recall exactly which ones now - they link to a base unit, which i believe is largely why it has a super annoying feature : delay between detection on camera and recording start on base unit (correct me if i'm wrong : camera detects, alerts base via wifi, they establish link, camera sends feed to base for storage…) .. all this contributes to a 2-3 sec delay .. to the point where the 'thing' that alerted the cam to start recording has largely passed thru the field of vision already, and the recording catches tail end only. So, in my setup, it's not very useful or helpful. I've read a fair bit about this being a known thing, so i've accepted it for the most part and tried to workaround it .. although results arent great.

    Anyway, the point is -with this Eufy having 4gb storage internally, this i imagine would negate this whole delay thing, right? it detects movement and starts recording to internal storage straight away?

    I see no other mentions of this Arlo-like delay, so i guess it's snappy response?

    Keen for feedback, comparitive to arlo or in terms of the speed to recording start.
    Thanks!

  • I just price matched x1 unit at SCA, the sales person advised they were on sale at SCA at $200 atm. This is contrary to their price on the website - $299. In case no stock left at Bunnings / Amazon

  • +1

    I have two of these and would recommended it.
    Doesn't need to be recharged.
    Fast and responsive for live viewing, recording and retrieving
    Big unit so is visible as a deterrent.

    Just be mindful of the positioning of the camera. If is mounted above an entrance door you might not be able to capture the face due to the higher angle unless the person looks up.

  • I am correct in believing this does not connect to the Base Station.? Got a 2C kit and would like to connect it to that.

    • Yes. It can't connect to Home Base.

      Edit: What benefit you would get if you can connect to home base?
