Eufy Floodlight Camera Review – Consumer Reports
Having personally installed wired projector cameras before (I own two older Ring models), I was a little surprised with the process of installing and setting up the Eufy projector.
When you unpack the Eufy, a power cord is attached to it (something I’ve never seen on three other projector camera models before). Indeed, Eufy asks you to plug it into an outlet and configure it in the Eufy Security application before wiring it into the projector electrical box.
Fortunately, the installation process was quick and easy. All I had to do was connect the camera to WiFi and the Eufy Security app, and I was ready to install the camera. At this point, you need to unplug the camera and unplug the power cord from the camera wiring so that you can connect it to an electrical box.
Of course, you must first remove your existing projector before you can continue. This involves turning off the power to your circuit breaker, removing the screws that hold the projector in place, and disconnecting the line, neutral, and ground wires from the old projector.
Once it is removed, you can start installing the Eufy Floodlight camera. The Eufy app offers a detailed installation video to help you every step of the way. When you factor in removing the old projector and installing the projector camera, the whole process took me about 45 minutes. When I was done all I had to do was turn the power back on and the camera was ready to roll.
