The Eufy Homebase connects to the Internet via a direct connection to your Wi-Fi router using an Ethernet cable. The Homebase also stores the original videos, so the recordings will not be lost even if the camera is damaged. Currently, 3 out of the 4 Eufy Video Doorbells require (it’s not optional!) a Homebase, the 2K Wired video doorbell is different from the others and does not require a Homebase at all….
Most EufySecurity devices can only work when connected to the HomeBase station: eufyCam/eufyCam E/eufyCam 2/eufyCam 2C/eufyCam 2 Pro/eufyCam 2C Pro. However, the company offers standalone cameras called the “SoloCam” series: the Solocam E20, SoloCam L20, and Solar Powered S40, to record video without HomeBase.
