Reolinks really fall over for night time motion. They have small sensors, so they slow down the shutter to let more light in. With a slower...

This is true, but the WIDER the field of view, the less FAR it can see. There are less pixels on a single object. The identification range...

"Ultra-Clarity at Night" This part is false. Pretty much all Reolinks have a problem with blurring at night. They have too small of a...

I like LifeHackster and The Hook Up, but there are sometimes issues in their testing where it wouldn't be a true test. In this video,...

Eufy doesn't share their actual specs in a useful way, so its hard to do a direct comparison. Eufy is more waterproof and has a wider field...

Its not weatherproof. It lacks an IP rating for dust and water. So you technically could, but may not work for long.

So it really depends on what "best" is. During the day for a general overview, sure, 12 MP would probably be best. Looking at a distant...

Wireless battery cameras tend to be fairly heavy on compression. So a wired 2K camera (like a Dahua) will outperform a wireless Eufy 2K....

Yep, can easily be pinched. Just held in place by a magnet.

They communicate via Wifi to their homebase via a hidden wifi network, not directly to your wifi router.

You can't connect it to a NAS or store the files on one. It's all proprietary.

It adds up. 5 years of subscription (which you would hope to get out of it) is $900. That is ON TOP OF the $879 for the cameras themselves....
