Eufy Home Alarm System Tweaks

I read that the Homebase 2 is not very loud for the home alarm system, but I also read the outdoor camera sirens are quite loud. I also read that the siren on the Homebase 1 is loud. So I have two ideas I’m wondering about.

  1. Can the Homebase 1 be used with the home alarm system?
  2. Can the home alarm system be setup to also trigger the outdoor camera sirens in the event of a break-in?

If idea 1 would work, hopefully Homebase 1’s siren is loud enough to scare off an intruder.

If idea 2 would work, then the sound of loud outdoor sirens from the eufyCams may be even better at running off intruders.

If idea 1 and 2 can be combined, I think that would be an even better setup, having the benefit from a loud indoor siren as well as outdoor ones.

Has anyone tried anything like this? If so, what has been your experience so far?


Awesome! That’s good to know. Thank you.

Number 2 is definitely possible. So what I did is to automate the outdoor Eufycams to record if the Homebase alarm is triggered. In this way, when someone trips an alarm, all alarms go on.

Eufy cam 2c alarm volume is crap. Homebase 2 has pretty good volume to be honest.

How many cameras do you have set up for this homebase? More than 4?

1 Battery doorbell (now it works!)
2 Eufycams
2 Entry Sensors
1 Motion Sensor

All connected to a Homebase 1

Hmm okay, thinking of adding a 2 pro in September, then I’m at 4 cams and a doorbell. Been hearing things that only 4 cams can be coupled with a homebase 2, instead of 16 advertised :confused:

Sorry for hijacking the thread, this is my last post here.

Nice! I think I may set mine up similar to that. There are quite a few setup options. I like that. Two door sensors arrived with DOA batteries, so I have to remedy that before an customizing.

I’m running 7 cameras with a homebase 2.

What is the first part of your serial number, T8010?
I see they have a set on sale in Germany with four eufycams and a battery doorbell, so it must be possible to have more than four cams. Maybe it’s to do with the model (T8010).

Yes, as cemoxim stated.
It’s strange he has 7 cams, which is almost double the ‘recommended’ amount. It gives me hope that I can safely add another camera.
