EufyCam 2 battery drain

Hi all,

Im using 4 eufycam2 connected to Home base for about 6 months. All was ok until one week ago I noticed dramatical battery drain in one of them. On eufy app I got red mark giving me info to low down the sensivity of detection(no settings changed). Then in 2 days battery drops from 50 to 10%. I made reset of the camera (5 times push button on camera) unpaired and pair it again with homebase and charge. Nothing changes. It drops about 10% every day without ever turning on. When armed uses about 15% battery per night. Settings that I use- human only detection, optimum surveillance. Other cameras have from 56 to 77 % and they are working from last charge 120 days. Maybe You can help me. Charging looks normal. Capacity of battery looks fine when compared power/time. Its something with software I think. Im using android app, all devices are shared to my wife with IOS.

Hey there,

What are the detection stats in the Power Manager menu?
Also, do you have automations set up? I had a case a while back where the camera set to record in an automation was recording all the time (without a proper trigger).

Thanks for Your answer. No automation. Detection almost none. 3 events and 30 % drop. 8h armed. 12h disarmed.

One thing you could do is swap the camera that’s draining very quickly. If the draining cam still drains, I would suggest contacting and see if they can provide a replacement. If the camera stops draining and the swapped camera starts draining, it may be the environment that triggers the camera.
For your sake I hope it’s a faulty camera, as you can replace that.

Thank for Your reply. Nothing changed in the garden but I will try to check it as you wrote. Camera switched. Made a reset, full charge. We will see.
