How do you prevent someone from stealing the doorbell?
The installation of our video doorbell is firm and secure, it is not a simple click in and out. The free EufySecurity app helps you to keep an eye on your doorbell anywhere you have an Internet connection. Once a thief enters the field of the doorbell camera, you will receive a notification on your device. You can view the event and take necessary actions.
The video is encrypted with the user's account and then stored on the doorbell. Others cannot access the video without correct account info. We're developing a feature to make the doorbell support backing up data to another location.
Does this have theft protection?
Sorry that we do not have theft protection.
Will my data be stolen if the device is being stolen?
