Hello, I just purchased a 2x Cam 2C kit with the Homebase 2. I was wondering since it is closer to August, if there is an update for the expanded storage out yet. Also, if I were to use an NVMe SSD in a USB enclosure, would it work with the Eufy Homebase 2, or would I have to use a SATA SSD to expand the storage?
I would also like to know an update on this.
just brougth the 4 wire-free 1080 with homebase2, Love the product.
Only hiccup, External Storage. I would like to know when the usb port be enable to allow an external drive be used for recording?.
@AnkerSupport any updates?
Waiting for this also, Anker need to pull your finger out!!
Slightly concerned to receive this update this morning.
“I understand that you want to connect a flash drive or USB hard drive to the bast unit to extend the local storage, please know that we will soon be launching a USB storage dongle that will allow you to expand the storage. It will be ready in the next 2-3 months if everything goes well. Please stay tuned!”
Do I read this right? To expand the storage on the HomeBase2 you will need to purchase a special dongle from Anker. I bet that won’t be cheap.
If the external drive requires firmware/software to run which more likely why they want to sell their own, Why not issue the files so a standard USB key/drive can be used.
Or is that too simple…
I’ll be extremely disappointed if I have to purchase a specific device to expand the storage capabilities of the homebase. A simple USB 3.0 dongle is perfectly capable and Anker will no doubt annoy a lot of customers
Will it be a firmware upgrade of the base or a special encryption dongle to put on usb slot to which any external harddrive would be connected to ?
Will we be able to use any external usb storage source?
Maybe if you start mentioning what doorbell cameras can have expandable memory then they will get a hint.
How soon is soon because its now going to be September and i haven’t heard anything yet
If this is correct i will be moving in another direction for local storage capability
I’m planning on purchasing the eufy doorbell with hombase2 and eufy cams in the future.
I wanted to make sure if there will be an option to expand the storage via usb or is eufy going to realease a new homebase? if there will be an option for expansion, any update on it?
Please let us know,
Exactly - What is the point? Oh yeah MORE $$$
If you use appletv you can use the apple cloud storage, that’s up to 2TB
Don’t purchase until available. I didn’t read the fine print and got features confused. Happy with product but is disappointing to invest $300 plus in cameras only to find that the storage runs through more quickly. Usb option of any sort would be great. I have thumb drive and ssd on standby so a dongle is disappointing to hear.
Any updates round the corner ?!! , it is October now ,Answer is a key driver to buy whole security system.
Any updates??? I am holding off purchasing a nas as I would rather use a usb device that I currently have. PLEASE!!!
