So, I purchased the floodlight camera to replace an existing ‘dumb’ floodlight and I went to install it today:
The Australian version comes with a junction box which, once attached to a brick wall, I assumed would sit neatly inside the housing of the floodlight camera and the floodlight camera would then fit nice and flush against the brick wall.
Unfortunately, when installed with the junction box, it doesn’t appear that it will sit flush against the brick wall.
Instead the floodlight camera appears to attach to the junction box Itself so the floodlight camera projects out from the wall by the depth of the junction box instead of giving a nice flush fitting.
It seems, at least to me, to be a terrible design - unless of course I’ve misunderstood how the Australian version is intended to be installed?
It doesn’t appear as though it would look good aesthetically, plus, as the junction box is plastic, it seems it could easily be damaged.
I’ve ended-up sending the floodlight camera back for a refund, so it looks like I will be replacing my ‘dumb’ floodlight with another non-Eufy product.
I must admit I’m pretty disappointed as I’m happy with all my other Eufy security products…
