With the new Eve Outdoor Cam, the Munich-based company Eve Systems will be offering its previously announced new outdoor camera from May 17th – The exclusive HomeKit Secure Video camera with integrated floodlight. Although it’s currently listed on Amazon.de, it’s currently listed as ‘unavailable’, so we hope to see that change on the aforementioned date.
Like the Eve Cam, the new Eve Outdoor Cam works exclusively via HomeKit Secure Video. This means that the video material only ends up on Apple’s iCloud servers, and only if requested, after it has been encrypted by the Home Hub while still in your own four walls.
Floodlit HomeKit camera
The special thing about the Eve Outdoor Cam is the integrated floodlight, which can also be separately controlled as a light via HomeKit. With the integrated motion detector and the necessary 100-240V connection, the camera can easily replace an existing outdoor floodlight.
The camera delivers 1080p resolution at 24 frames per second with a field of view of 157°. The infrared motion detection, on the other hand, triggers at an angle of 100° at a distance of up to 9m at an installation height of 2.5m. Even after installation, the angle of the camera can still be adjusted via the three-axis joint.
The concept is not new
The concept of an outdoor camera with an integrated floodlight is not new. Netatmo has had a very similar HomeKit Secure Video camera in its range for several years. The recommended retail price of the new Eve Outdoor Cam is €249.99 – €50 less than the competition. However, it should be noted that the street price of Netatmo cameras is often below the recommended retail price.
The Eve Outdoor Cam can now be pre-ordered from Amazon for just under €250. Delivery should take place from May 17, 2022.
