My 2c cameras are running down way to fast . I have put the settings to minimal. About Every 2 months im having to charge. I understand they should last 180 days on a full charge . Any advise would be welcomed.
Stop believing nonsense. I have a scooter that said it should get 125 miles per gallon…. It gets 50.
With that said…. What’s your cam looking at ?
Per eufy and their usage scenario…
For eufyCam 2/2 Pro, a fully charged camera can last for one year, and for eufyCam 2C/2C Pro, it can last for half-year, with these usage scenarios:
- 68°F (20°C) temperature
- 10 motion detections per day and recorded for 30 seconds each time motion was detected. (Standby power consumption is included in the usage time.)
Battery life varies and depends on the number of times motion is detected, recording time duration, and environmental temperatures.
“Unfortunately I don’t see many folks having this type of scenario”
Thank you for your help . Kind Regards
OK I agree with you . The cameras are facing a main Rd watching my parked car . I have now turned the severity to low and altered the angle . Recharged yesterday. Will see how I get on . Kind Regards for help .
That’s a tough spot for a camera…. If your PIR sensor is triggering on passing cars on the main road … even if it doesn’t record that event it will still trash your battery life.
Shadows from tall trees were my issue with the 2c…. I switched to the cam pro 2 for better battery life…. And then went with the wired c24. Where I live there is no avoiding shadows.
They are a great product. Like you say got to be careful where fitted . Great to hear you got yours sorted in the end. Although more expense.
I have 10 eufy cameras…. I use them all. But…. I am patiently waiting for the new homebase and cameras. If I have vehicle and human AI…. That’s a game changer!!!
