My HomeKit Secure Video alerting and recording lags behind the native Eufy ones and is often unusable.

I just installed three EufyCam 2s outside my house and they are practically great. Easy to install and configure, the stream looks good. Good signal even over the house from the base station. No complaints.

But it seems that HomeKit Secure Video alerts and captures seconds after Eufy alerts. Worse, the video capture starts later, and the first few seconds are just a blur. Often on a short video, that’s all I get – the sound and a big blur of the video, just a few seconds.

Alerting and capturing video in the Eufy app are excellent. It is triggered even when the movement enters a capture area and records until the movement ends. I would love to see HomeKit alert and registration so good.

Any suggestions?
