Because of the way the Eufy Security private API works, an email/password combo cannot
work with both the Eufy Security mobile app and this app. It is recommended to
use the mobile app to create a secondary “admin” account with a separate email address
and use it with this app. (Make sure 2FA is disabled for this account)

Current features:

  • turn on/off camera (EufyCam pan&tilt will turn its lens)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: I don’t receive notifications/device updates in Homey
A1: Make sure the selected security mode inside the official Eufy app has enabled notifications for your device
A2: Check the notification settings per device and make sure person and/or motion is enabled (tip: use include thumbnail)

Q2: Can I disable notifications on my Phone and keep them on Homey?
A1: Unfortunately not. Homey registers itself as a Android device at Eufy.
A2: Work-around Android: Disable motion inside the Android settings (Apps → Eufy → Notifications)
A3: Work-around Ios: (link)

Q3: Images are not updating in the app
A1: Try to restart the app. Most of the time this fixes the issue. (A fix for this is being worked on.)
A2: Images are only updating when an event happened: motion/person detection or doorbell press
A3: Live stream is not possible right now. I started working on an new integration with an different library which gives the opportunity to get real-time images from camera
A4: Check FAQ Q1 for the correct settings

Q4: I cannot change the on/off state or security modes
A1: Check your app-settings. Make sure to use an Internal IP address. If you don’t know the address. Go to the official Eufy app and select: Homebase settings → about device → IP

Q5: The battery status is not aligned with the official Eufy app
A1: Seems like the battery status is incorrect. Eufy is not updating that every day to the cloud. so the data is quite outdated. I started working on an new integration with an different library which gives the opportunity to get real-time data from devices.

Q6: When I change to Geofencing/Schedule Homey doesn’t update
A1 When you come home - select Home on the keypad. Make a flow like this: Gedeelde Flow | Homey (with these settings: https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/business4/uploads/athom/optimized/3X/a/1/a1c570c5ac6a6e98283ab951829d0e24a8a97eed_2_250x500.jpeg)
A2: Don’t use Schedule/ Geo in Eufy and let Homey decide what Eufy needs to do. In this way you can combine other brands together with Eufy. Like this Homey is your source of truth and decides what other hubs/devices needs to do.

Q7: When I try to add a new camera it doesn’t show up
A1: Make sure the new camera is shared with your extra account. Otherwise it can’t be picked up by Homey.

Q8: Eufy disables my Homebase notifications
A1: Use the force notification option inside the Homebase setting: [APP] Eufy Security - #1029 by martijnpoppen

Q9: New camera is not showing up
A1: Login again in the Eufy-Homey app. Go to settings and click Save changes this will refresh your Eufy data

Q10: Changing guard mode shows: Not available for this device
A1: This is because the security modes are setup globally. The Off option is only for the homebase. When you see Not available for this device the security mode isn’t changed and the Homey app shows this message as an indicator that it cannot be used with this device.

Hi @martijnpoppen , this is great news, when are you going to support other products ?

I have a eufy doorbell 2k wired and a homebase 2 with 2 1080 p cams.
If I can help you with this by testing let me know.

Hi @Rens_Hoekema ,
Currently i’m trying to get the notifications to homey.
I think this will also work with the doorbell press but i’m not sure.
If I have a new version ready i’ll reach out to you via DM :slight_smile:

Hi,
Got the notifications working. (Motion, Face, Sound and Doorbell Press).

To test it follow these steps:

  • create and extra account in Eufy (otherwise you can be blocked)
  • Make sure you have notifications turned on in your eufy app.
  • install app from community store (v0.7.0)
  • configure app.
  • login with your eufy credentials (the one you just created)
  • Select listen to eufy notifications (checkmark)
  • Save changes. Wait until you see “saved” (don’t hit the save button to many times Eufy will block you)
  • now Eufy is active in your triggers and actions. (there is no support for devices yet).
  • For the if flow -> you can select the specific detection
  • in the then flow -> you can select if you want to set the Guard mode and turn your device on/off

community store: Homey Community Store
or CLI method: GitHub - martijnpoppen/com.eufylife.security at 0.7.0

Next feature I’ll be working on will be adding of devices so you can create flows per device. :slight_smile:

I’m also interested in a eufy integration

Thanks for the update!
I tried to get the Deurbel Druk working, but it didn’t work.
This is what I have done so far:

  • Shared the devices (EufySecurity app --> Family & Guest --> Add Admin) with a second account.
  • Logged in with second account in the EufySecurity, can see the devices and get notifications.
  • Installed v0.7.0 from Community
  • In Homey Eufy app, Configure App
  • Logged in with the second account. But no keys are generated. It only tells me: “Saved. Logged in to EufyLife.”
  • Tried to create a flow, but no doorbell press was detected.

When I go back to configure the Homey Eufy, all the login details are gone.
And when I try to fill in random things in the login, it also gives the above “Saved” state.
So it looks like the login isn’t working anymore.
With the previous version, it did work and got all de different keys.
If you need any more testing, please let me know!

Hi @Pim_L,
Thanks for your findings.

Did you also log out of the EufySecurity app (on your phone) again?
Because you should logged in in to the EufySecurity app with your main account and logged in with the second account on the homey app.

Can you share a screenshot of the Configure App page in a DM?

That is amazing @martijnpoppen !
I’ve already got an integration working with a Fibaro Implant, but this makes it so much more convenient!

How likely do you think it will be able to include a camera screenshot as well?
Would love to connect that with the Face Recognition app for full integration :slight_smile:

Yes working on that too.

Trying to get devices up and running. I think then it would be possible to have the notfication screenshot as well.

First fixing some Authentication problems :frowning:

Hi @martijnpoppen .

I see that an (other) app has appeared in the Homey store.

Or is the same app?

Hi Twan,
Yes @Pim_L already send me a message about that. It’s a different one.
But as far as i see only doorbell support.

I also requested a publish of my app to the main store. Let’s see where this goes :slight_smile:

I don’t know if you already got it working, because I didn’t.
Installed the app, logged in with my second account (admin rights), got a (swedish?) message that I was logged in, but it didn’t found my doorbell.
