Earlier today, some owners of Eufy security cameras were able to access both live camera feeds and recordings for other Eufy customers — the nightmare scenario for many smart security camera owners. The Anker-owned company blames the security failure on a "software bug" that happened during a server upgrade. In a follow-up email, Eufy tells us only 0.001% of customers were affected. The company claims the issue was fixed by 6:30 AM EST, and customers should reboot their hardware and log out and back in on Eufy apps.
If you're a fan of Arlo's line of smart home camera equipment, you've probably been waiting for a few of its features to catch up to the likes of Nest. Today one of them does, at least if you're a subscriber to the Arlo Smart premium package. With the latest app update, you can see animated video previews in the notification for Arlo cameras and video doorbells.
It's been a busy start to the year for Ring. After releasing one of the most affordable smart doorbells on the market today, the company has returned with not one but two new cameras designed to keep your home monitored when you aren't around. In addition to a brand-new Video Doorbell 4, Ring is finally upgrading its popular floodlight with the new Floodlight Cam Wired Pro. Both versions are gaining some great improvements over the last-gen models.
Home security systems used to require a whole lot of hassle to set up, but these days, as long as you've got a stable Wi-Fi connection, you're good to go. Eufy makes some of the best affordable smart home gear around, and its security camera lineup is no exception. Today only, you can grab one of Eufy's home security systems with up to four cameras from Amazon, all available at new lows.

I'm not sure about you, but there's nothing that sends a chill down my spine like someone ringing the doorbell. It's a necessary evil in our modern lives, but the modern world has also alleviated some of the stress—cloud-connected smart video doorbells are pretty much a revelation if you've never experienced one. You'll know every time someone is at the door, be able to check for packages without getting up from your couch, and avoid pesky door-to-door solicitors (when we have those again). Arlo, Nest, and Ring all have compelling options, but there's one we think is the best choice for most people, especially if you're using an Android phone and a Google-powered smart display like the Nest Hub.
Arlo is known in the security camera space for making very good, very expensive products. The Ultra line in particular, with its 4K HDR capabilities, is notoriously pricey. Though it's been replaced by the newer Ultra 2, the original Arlo Ultra is still a very capable camera, and you can get cameras and kits starting at just $110 today on Woot.
Ring's video doorbells are amongst the most advanced ones on the market. Its existing Video Doorbell Pro already comes with a bunch of features, including a 1080p camera and a built-in infrared sensor. The new generation builds on these and adds extra technology, making it one of the best products in its category.
The Samsung ecosystem spreads far and wide beyond the Galaxy S21 or smartwatches or even fridges. For example, the SmartThings Cam is a simple little indoor guard that does much of the things comparable security cameras in 2021 can do. But where else can you get one for $20?
D-Link isn't just a Taiwanese consumer networking gear vendor: it makes smart home appliances, too. Turns out we've got a couple of new gadgets from the company this year: a moisture sensor and an outdoor pan & zoom security camera.
