eufySecurity released its very successful Eufycam 2C first in August 2019. It was the first home security camera that would match professional home monitoring quality while not pushing you to a monthly subscription.
The successor of this product is called eufyCam 2c Pro, which Eufy released one year later, in July 2020.
The difference between the eufyCam 2c and the eufyCam 2c Pro is the camera resolution quality.
Whereas the eufyCam 2c supports 1080p, the eufyCam 2c Pro supports full 2K resolution.
This is, in fact, the only difference between the 2 models. What Eufy called Pro is, in fact, just a camera quality upgrade.
For the rest, both models are identical regarding hardware and software features.
With a price tag difference of about $80-$100 (the Pro is currently about $100 more expensive), Eufy wants to cater to everyone’s budget.
We think both options will suit you fine, and however, if you can afford it, you won’t regret getting the 2K (or “Pro”) version, as a higher image quality does not only makes it more enjoyable to view, it also contributes to the security of your setup.
What is the difference between a Eufy 2k and Eufy 1080p camera?
Except for the Eufy SpaceView Baby Monitor (which can be 720p or 2K), all Eufy’s products come in either 1080p or 2K resolution, with the 2K version often referred to as the Pro version (eufyCam Series, Floodlight Cam Series).
Technically, 1080p or “Full HD” means 1920 pixels horizontally and 1080 pixels vertically.
2K, also known as “Quad HD,” consists of 2560 pixels horizontally and 1440 pixels vertically.
Do not worry if you do not quite understand this pixel-by-pixel stuff, but basically:
The higher the resolution, the better the video and picture quality; which contributes to the security of your setup.
A resolution of 1080p is a very solid resolution for capturing most environments, people, and objects. 2K is a solid upgrade to that, which we recommend.
The main difference is that everything looks better, and you get more clarity when zooming in on a 2K video than on a 1080p video.
Of course, that’s always a good thing for your security, especially to better see people read license plates and other details. It is just a bit pricier.
