AqaraDirect via Amazon is offering its GH2 HomeKit Secure Video Camera for $59.39 shipped when clipping the on-page coupon. Usually fetching $70, today’s offer comes within $4 of the holiday mention, is still one of the first times on sale, and marks the third-best discount to date. Alongside integrating with the rest of Aqara’s smart home accessories thanks to a built-in Zigebee hub, the GH2 camera supports 1080p recording with local microSD card storage. There’s also integration with Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video standard, allowing you to store footage in iCloud and take advantage of facial recognition. Rated 4.5/5 stars from over 135 customers and you can get a closer look in our launch coverage. Head below for more.
If the added Zigbee features and ability to bring other sensors into your HomeKit setup isn’t doing anything for you, going with Anker’s popular eufy 2K Cam delivers much of the same recording features above in a $38 package. Alongside HomeKit, there’s also support for 1080p feeds and an indoor design. Get a closer look at how this alternative performs in our hands-on review.
