I have had no issues with my EufyCam 2’s paired with Apple HomeKit up until the recent firmware updates that were pushed to the HomeBase 2 and to the EufyCam 2 on 8/13/20. The firmware updates in question for the HomeBase 2 is firmware update (22.214.171.124h), and for the EufyCam 2 it is firmware update (2.6.6). Since the these firmware updates were installed, I have been having motion notification issues within the Apple Home App ever since. What will happen is that all of my EufyCam’s now set to “Stream” in HomeKit, NOT set to “Stream & Record” (HKSV) will now trigger the cameras on board Motion Sensor every five minutes.
I have reached out to Eufy Support and the Eufy Beta Admin in charge of the Apple HomeKit Beta Testing Google Group I was part of for the HKSV Beta Testing. I have only heard back from Eufy Support, and they pushed a new firmware update to my HomeBase 2 (fw 126.96.36.199h) and to my EufyCam’s (fw 2.6.7) on 8/23/20. This firmware has done nothing and I am still receiving false motion triggered notifications every five minutes. I have removed the EufyCam’s, reset them, reset the HomeBase 2, reset all motion zones, set motion zones, set motion sensitivity to one, set motion sensitivity to detect “Only Human Motion,”nothing works.
Here are also two reddit threads indicating other users are having the same issues as well:
Please address these issues Eufy, as it does not appear I am the only one having this issue now.
