Anker eufy Security 5-Piece Home Alarm Kit
Longtime T&T readers will likely be familiar with Anker, a company known for producing high quality gadgets, especially charging accessories. However, they may not be aware of “eufy”, the company’s sub-brand dedicated to smart home solutions.
In the box, you get:
- The eufy HomeBase, which is the brains of the operation and connects to your router via ethernet, creating a wireless node for the rest of the kit to talk to.
- A security keypad for manually arming/disarming the security system as you leave or arrive at home. What’s nice is that it’s 100% wireless, so you don’t have to do anything more complicated than adhering or screwing the mount to a wall somewhere.
- A motion sensor that detects motion within a 100° radius and up to 30 feet away, and will trip the HomeBase’s 100-decibel siren if armed, while also notifying your phone of an intrusion.
- Two entry sensors that can be stuck onto window frames and doors to detect forced entries in those specific places.
At this point you’ve got a system that can detect entries and notify you about them, but for even better peace of mind, you can also outfit your home with eufy’s HomeKit-enabled cameras along with their wireless video doorbell to turn the security system into a home surveillance one.
