The Essential cameras (E20, E40) offer all the necessities including infrared night vision, two-way audio, AI person detection, voice assistant support, and they have an IP67 protection rating. The SoloCam Spotlight cameras (L20, L40) add an adjustable ring light around the camera and adjustable color temp.

Both the Essential and Spotlight cameras will be offered in 1080p or 2K variants. The Solar will only be offered in 2K. All cameras will come equipped with 8GB of local storage which is estimated to hold about two months’ worth of video.

Eufy says the built-in batteries should last for about 120 days or 4 months on a single charge. The SoloCam Solar can operate on just two hours of sunlight and uses the built-in battery at night.

The move to produce completely wire-free or untethered security cameras came after the company experienced a security glitch that let some users see other users’ homes unwillingly. But with the SoloCam line, users won’t have to worry because everything is locally controlled.
