[RELEASE] Eufy Security (Alpha)

Very early alpha release of Eufy Security. Supporting cameras, doorbells, and stations. Features are rather limited because hubitat does not support UDP sockets or UDP requests with multiple responses. And looks like it's fairly low priority Persistent UDP - Feature Requests - Hubitat .

If you're able to run a node server, recommend using GitHub - bropat/ioBroker.eufy-security at dd239d027f8c94b368fae59168b02761e7b09db3 instead.

I don't have other Eufy devices to test with, but app should work with most of the cameras and doorbells assuming they work similarly. Please let me know if it works for you for other devices not in the tested list.

Debugging / Adding Features

For devices I don't have, will need some help to find out the param types and values in order to support missing features. To help with this please do the following:

  1. On the device enable Log param changes
  2. Click refresh on the app
  3. Open logging for the device
  4. On the eufy app, make a change in the setting you want
  5. Click refresh again on the app and it should log any params that changed. If nothing changed then this is probably a feature that the driver can't support.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 for various different values in the app (for example for brightness try 0 and 100) and record the logged values. PM or post the logs to me along with the setting you changed in the eufy app and the device type.

I only have one Eufy device, a wired doorbell, and the only function I've been looking for is the Motion Snooze.

I've installed this and it works great for everything it does. On/off, motion on/off, etc. Is there a way to trigger the snooze function?

I have four eufyCam 2C and two HomeBase 2 - so it would be very useful to have a working driver. :+1:

@amosyuen: I tried every step you mentioned, but cannot get any devices listed. :cry:

The log shows on every attempt this:
app:157 2021-02-14 16:04:55.000 [trace] updateDeviceList: hubs=null
app:157 2021-02-14 16:04:54.996 [trace] makeHttpCall: status=200, data=[code:0, msg:Succeed.]

=> Access-Token is valid, Internet-Connection is running.

I connected my account and the Wired doorbell 2k shows up as a device. Woohoo!

Dumb question: does this receive motion and doorbell events? Or is it just to control the settings of the doorbell itself?

Thanks!

Thank you for this! I have the wireless doorbell and can at least change modes now so thanks!

I have been PM'ing with Amos as I'm a bit stuck, but perhaps any one else here can help out some?
I've got a HomeBase 2 with a Video Doorbell 2K Battery Powered. Neither device gets found when logging in into the app. Am I missing something? Can understand if the 2K-version might differ, but the HomeBase 2 is the same version both for this and the 1080P one, right?
I have followed Amos' directions, but unsure if it's because of it being so early on in progress or if I'm not tech savvy enough here.

Thought I would try this out and am getting an error when logging in.

Login Error Mon Feb 15 13:15:05 EST 2021 Error requesting two factor auth code: groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: user_app_amosyuen_Eufy_Security_257.apiPOST() is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.String, java.util.LinkedHashMap, java.lang.Boolean) values: [/sms/send/verify_code, [message_type:2], false] Possible solutions: apiUrl()

I am going to test the 2k pan and tilt, and the 2k indoor camera.

Submitted fix for the two factor auth code error in v0.0.1.

So Jost and marcus.soderberg seem to be having the same problem where the get_hub_list and get_devs_list calls do not return any data. Normally the response looks more like:

makeHttpCall: status=200, data=[code:0, msg:Succeed. data:[[device_id: 1234,
...
]]]

but your logs show there is no data subfield in the data. Not sure why it isn't returning data for you guys, but possibly one thing might be different countries. I'm based in the US, what countries are you guys in?

Dumb question: does this receive motion and doorbell events? Or is it just to control the settings of the doorbell itself?

No motion events. I would love to add that functionality, but not finding a way to do that from the exposed API.

Germany.

Do you need some more (debug) data?

Sweden here.

Not really sure what needs to change, but a guess is that Europe needs to use a different api url, I submitted an update with some logic to change the api domain at login if the login response suggests a different domain. Could you try:

  1. Update the app past v0.0.1
  2. Log in again (clicking log in button)
  3. List devices again

So I've updated to latest (which is 0.01), unsure what you mean with past? Logged in again and listed devices once more.
Still no devices listed.
Looking through the logs and comparing with the previous screen dump I PM'ed, the only differences is a new token and that the login-info is fully readable (not good, huh?).

Let me know if there is anything more I can do albeit me being not so tech savvy here! :wink:

I got this in my log:

app:157 2021-02-16 21:56:57.146 error Login: org.apache.http.client.ClientProtocolException

app:157 2021-02-16 21:56:57.116 trace login: loginScreen=true

Before 0.0.1 I could at least do the login, now it's not working... :thinking:

OK, after the 4th or 5th attempt I could do the login - but still no devices. :cry:

@Jost: I got the same, but when checking after leaving it for a bit, it was logged in?

Sorry guys, looks like there was a bug in my code that was reading the domain field from the wrong field. I fixed it in v0.0.2, could you try updating and re-logging in again.

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: user_app_amosyuen_Eufy_Security_265.makeHttpCallAndHandleCode() is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.util.LinkedHashMap, java.lang.Boolean) values: [httpPost, /app/trust_device/add, [verify_code:411184], false]

Two-factor authentication is active, got the code by mail as it should, but get the above error now.
