eufyCam E vs. Arlo Pro 2

Let’s get straight to the differences between the eufyCam E vs. Arlo Pro 2. 

The major differences are the fact that Arlo Pro 2 sports a much more advanced 8x digital zoom while Eufy Cam E has no zoom available. Yet eufyCam E provides us with an impressive 16 GB worth of free local storage without any subscription fees, as well as an increased field of view.

However, in the end, we feel that due to Arlo’s smart home integration and flexible power options, it makes it the superior model of the two.

eufyCam E vs. Arlo Pro 2 — What’s Different?

Arlo Pro 2

Storage – eufy Cam E provides us with a 16GB free worth of local storage for all your video files using a micro SD card.

This can save you up to a year’s worth of recordings!

While Arlo Pro 2 comes with 7-day free cloud storage, which you can extend after by opting for a subscription plan.

Additionally, Pro 2 includes local backup storage as well, which will duplicate saved video clips from cloud storage directly to the USB storage in its base.

Field of View – Eufy Cam E provides a wider 140° field of view, compared to Pro’s 130°.
Thus, giving eufy more of an edge when it comes to minoring you property and catching any suspicious activity.

Power Options – Arlo Pro 2 has two power options available, you can power it up using a rechargeable battery or connect it to an AC power supply.

However, its battery life claims 3-6 months worth of usage, while eufy Cam E boasts a whole year of battery life, thus making it the better option when going wireless.

IFTTT – Eufy Cam E lacks compatibility with IFTTT, while Arlo Pro 2 is compatible with this handy software that allows you to have all your smart devices working together by creating a series of commands or applets.

Zoom – The zoom feature can come in handy when you need to identify anything suspicious, which is why Arlo Pro 2 includes the 8x digital zoom function which eufy Cam lacks.

Subscription Plan – Arlo Pro 2 also includes the Arlo Smart subscription plan which allows you to receive up to 30 days worth of cloud storage, as well as person, vehicle and animal detection too.

Motion Zones – Arlo Pro 2 can monitor up to 3 different zones when plugged in, which allows you to keep an eye on higher risk areas such as the front door or garage.

While eufy Cam E only includes the standard motion detection function.
