What you need to know
- Eufy has clarified the timeline for HomeKit support on two of its cameras.
- The Indoor Cam 2K and Indoor Cam 2K Pan & Tilt in particular.
- HomeKit support is coming. And it'll include HomeKit Secure Video, too.
Eufy has shared a post to its customer forum (opens in new tab) today in an attempt to clarify what's happening with HomeKit support for the Indoor Cam 2K and Indoor Cam 2K Pan & Tilt. In short, it's coming later this month and there's actually some good news – it's bringing HomeKit Secure Video with it.
Eufy has been promising that HomeKit support would come to the cameras but, notably, the boxes the cameras ship in don't have the HomeKit logo on them. Still, Eufy has a good reputation for updating its kit, and while delayed, HomeKit support is on the way.
Users seem to be generally taking the news well, although there will always be dissenting voices. The lack of HomeKit logo on the box is important however and it's vital buyers don't pick up new devices based on the promise of future updates adding new features. Thankfully Eufy is adding what it said it would – and some.
Users will just need to wait a little while for it to arrive.
