How to install Cheap Solar Power for Wire Free Cameras – 1st eufy Cam DIY Solar Power Install

Blog_Tech_1st eufy Cam Solar Power DIY Install - Infinity Battery Life DIY Solar Wire Free Security Cameras

The very first DIY Solar Power solution for eufyCam!  Wire free security camera systems are a great idea for ease of installation.  But having to unmount them regularly throughout the year to recharge the battery is a hassle and can be dangerous when Winter hits.  So a solar power energy source / solar charger would be the perfect solution.

We all know that solar power is a neat idea but the sun doesn’t shine 24 hours a day.  That’s why pairing a solar panel with Anker’s eufyCam batteries to power the security cameras works so well!  Checkout our Eufy cam hack next!

*** Please see important info on Winter use in the sections below.

Important Winter Note:  After using this solution for some time now we received a message from the app stating: “Unable to charge.  The camera battery is unable to be charged when ambient temperature is higher than 45 °C (113 °F) or lower than 0 °C (32 °F)”.

It appears if the temperature of the batteries falls below 0 °C then it cannot be charged by the solar panel.  We’re looking for a solution for this and hope to release an update video in the future.  Stay tuned!
