The weakest point of the Eufy products: the app

I own three Eufy products, the homebase, a Eufycam 2c and the doorbell.
As far as the physical products are concerned, I am more than happy. They work really well and the price/quality ratio is fine. Setting up is easy and everything works flawlessly.

My gripe is with the android app and some of its features.

  1. Geofencing.

Geofencing is broken. Even with battery optimisations off, geolocation always on, no hibernation mode for the app, it occassionaly works but most of the time it doesn’t. If it doesn’t work all the time, there is no real use for it. The lame excuse that it is a beta feature gets old very quickly. Fix it.

  1. No widgets

The only way to switch off or on the alarm is to switch it off in the app itself. Why are there no widgets? That can’t be that hard to make. Make a widgets with the functions: home, absent, off etc. It would be much easier.

  1. Connection with routine in google home.
    Again, just as with the Geofencing feature, this works and then it stops working again.

The physical products are excellent, the app just looks like an afterthought.
