Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wireless)
Unlike Ring’s battery-operated doorbell, the battery in Eufy’s unit isn’t removable. As such, you’ll have to physically unmount the camera to recharge the battery for around six hours every six months.
Of all the models here, Eufy’s video doorbell records footage at the highest resolution. As such, footage is extremely detailed, and a 4:3 aspect ratio means you can pretty much see the full length of the person on your doorstep.
Also notable with this doorbell is that it isn’t necessary to sign up for a monthly subscription to get the most from the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K. Rather than video being stored securely online, up to 16GB of footage – around two week’s worth – can sit on the bundled base station, so there’s no on-going cost. But the base station does need to be connected to your wireless router using an Ethernet cable, so make sure you have a spare port.
In our tests, we found colors in the footage were more subdued than with rival doorbells, and the video could lose detail in very bright situations – but it excelled in darker settings.
