Update: I opened a ticket with support since 5/17/2020 #25657072 to query about non working functions with Alexa, today as of 6/3/2020 there I have not offered a solution, on the contrary, I was offered a a free camera as reward for my troubles, which I didn’t take. As this thread is not Alexa subject., I am going to disclose what they said regarding other ecosystems. In summary they evaded all my questions and after escalating to the “Manager”, who is not versed on technology, pretty much replied with very bland response and no mitigation steps for the problem at hand. He reiterated that there is not going to be any API available to the public nor other any other automation platform currently on the market other that Apple. That they “never” promised IFTT integrations for EufyCam2 or DoorBell products.
He stated that “its a technology limitation, that and they need permission from the the vendors to be able to expose their API” (ujum, its not under their control). Like they need permission to develop an json template documenting functions for their API under Apache License and the community will take care of the rest. So whatever they tell you, either that its not doable or that they can’t it’s not true. What they want is to close down their ecosystem to allow you to use only their products and endorsed $ partners.
Their API is exposed already on their WEB portal, but yeah right, “it’s a technology limitation”:
Its all there already, its just a matter of willingness, not a “limitation”:
BTW, who we are trusting our private data and is being stored on folks:
So in a nutshell, we the customers are not a their top interest and not they are not the company they promised who will be.
PS: looking deeper into the a API, check this out, looks like our devices will are on a death clock of cycles of charges(this might be my a mistaken interpretation as I dont know the API functions), this is understandable as LI-ion battery have finite cycles of charges before their capacitance gets overdue, as such it is a firehazard protection for the consumer, but my DoorBell and Eufy2Cam is only 3 weeks old, hahaha:
This is just my opinion based on facts and evidence.
