Will there be an option to set motion “human” and “all motions” through flows?

Hey @Tb1 ,
Was not planning to do that yet.
But maybe in the future

I have succesfully been able to add eufy devices to homey wit Martijn’s app. It was possible to create flows that are triggered by someone ringing the bell.
But not by the triggers of the bell camera for movement. The statusses of all triggers stay ‘null’ at all time in Homey environment. Nevertheless, the in-camera trigger does work as it does start a video an do create triggers within the Eufy environment.
Do I need to set some variables within the Eufy software, or do something else?

Maybe @martijnpoppen can tell you for sure, but as I understand it you have two choices in Eufy’s device settings (at least with the video doorbell I own): detect people or detect motion.

Depending on which one you choose, the other won’t be triggered. So if you have people detection turned on, you should listen to those triggers instead. Sadly you can’t have it both ways, but that is something only Eufy will be able to fix.

Hey @Ronald_B ,
Make sure the selected Security mode has notifications enabled. Otherwise Homey cannot pick it up.

New app update (test: 2.3.11 ):

Helemaal top Martijn, de Geofencing modus kan nu ook door Homey worden ingeschakeld!
Handig, want nu heb ik een schema dat snachts wordt ingeschakeld met direct alarm of je nou thuis bent of niet, en een Geofencing schema dat wel onderscheid maakt.
Super, helemaal happy!

@Ronald_B ,
Nice to hear! :smiley:
One sidenote: homey doesn’t detect if you move to geofencing/schedule.
Make sure to disable Geofencing and Schedule notifications on your Homebase.

I have this weird issue sometimes with my eufycam 2 pro. This morning when I went to work the camera didn’t record me and no push image either (eufycam app) and the homey app didn’t register motion at this time either. But here is the strange thing, homey app has a picture of the motion :flushed: how is that possible?

Look at this pictures, the image is from 04:01 but no motion is registered, the last registered motion was 03:42. The motion at 04:01 isn’t registered anywhere but homey has got an image of the motion. How is this possible?

Can you add a “when a image received” to flow? :smiley:


With full effect there will not be an image. I only get a picture if i set it to include thumbnail.

@Tb1
That’s weird. The only way a image gets registered is when motion is recorded. So actually every flow with ... detected does the same.
So cannot really tell you how that image got there. Maybe if you send a diagnostic report I can tell you what went wrong.

About the full effect. I tried it with multiple camera’s but maybe it doesn’t work for Eufycam 2.

Okey, yes thats really weird. Can you still see it in the diagnostic report even if I installed the latest version after this happen?

No full effect doesn’t seem to be working with image but i still get motion

If you send it. So trough More -> apps -> Eufy Seucrity -> settings wheel right top -> send diagnostic report

So thats different from the DEBUG logs in the app settings.

DEBUG = Live logging
Diagnostic report = History logs

Hi Martijn,

I think I don’t agree with you on that Homey doesn’t detect anything when moving to geofencing.

To my knowledge and experience Geofencing mode just means that Homebase will switch automatically between 2 other modes. “Thuis” and “Afwezig” in my case. So ,it will be one of those two modes active when Homey thells Homebase to use Geofencing mode. I made Homey switch between a night mode (when Homey knows we are going to sleep) which activates more and direct alarms, and the geofencing mode otherwise. Works like a charm

Hi @Ronald_B ,
That’s correct. Only Homey doesn’t detect the moving to Geofencing.
So if you change your security mode in the Eufy app for example from Home -> Geofencing.Homey will not do that. :wink:

@Tb1 Logs are from around 7 o’clock. So cannot tell what went wrong at 4 :frowning:

I think it was because i updated the app around that time.

My Homey pro is now a week back and I have been busy with a lot of things to get the Homey working like it did before he died.
The last two days I have been testing the Eufy Security app for Homey and I see a lot of good things.

@martijnpoppen , you asked me to test with the motion sensor and I made a simple flow to turn on the light and sent me a message when the sensor is triggered.
I can say that works but the push notification for the motion sensor in the Eufy app needs to be activated to get it working. Maybe there is a way to get this working without having to enable this push notification?

I have found one issue with the 2c pro cam image in the Eufy app for homey.
Eufy doe show me an image in it’s app but with Homey I get either a blank image or the Eufy image. This did work before my Homey died. I use Pipup and there I got most of the time an image of what was happening. Now I don’t get that anymore. Just blank or Eufy image
Here is an example what I see on my phone.

Doorbell images works fine with and is the same as in Eufy.

For my presence flows I have now done a test with the person detection of the Eufy doorbell. I use the smart Presense app and due to flickering WiFi regularly have people who are away without actually being away and have now managed to partially reduce that by adding the person detection of the doorbell to the flow. If it does not turn on, no one can be logged out. I have tested this for now, but I want to do this with an Eufy door sensor in the future.

I am also trying out with Eufy in combination with the Face ++ app to recognize faces, but that is not going very well yet.
If someone still has a good working example flow of it, I would like to copy it.

Furthermore, I have included in my existing bedtime and wake-up flows to set the alarm to “home”, “Away” or other mode and that goes well.

I keep testing with it so if I run into something I report it here.
Thank you for your nice work on this app.

Here are some more examples of the flows as mentioned above.

Hey @Heula !
Good to hear your Homey is back. I hope you had a cloud backup? :see_no_evil:

Unfortunately not. Homey registers itself as a Android device at Eufy. only in that way it can receive the events. If Eufy ever implements user based notifications it will be possible. But until then it doesn’t. only way to fix it is to disable the notifications on your Iphone/Android. (link)

Most of the times this can be fixed with an restart of the app. This issue is still in progress. But it’s quite an long process because I have to delete my devices every time and test motions and do the whole process again :sweat_smile:

Really nice! I do support the keypad too. So maybe that’s also something you might want to try :stuck_out_tongue:

Didn’t try that yet. Think it’s quite hard because not every person detection has a good picture of somebody’s face. :confused:

Thankyou! There’s more to come. Working on a big update with a new Eufy-Library. So also streaming would be possible :crossed_fingers:
