Aqara Camera E1 – Smarter vision for a safer home

The Camera E1 is an affordable yet future-proof camera with a focus on smart home automation capabilities and ecosystem support. It features the latest networking technologies such as Wi-Fi 6, and greatly reduces false alerts by incorporating a built-in local AI-based person detection and tracking that reduces false.

Aqara Camera E1 Features:

  • Compatible with Apple Home, etc.: Camera E1 integrates with third-party ecosystems like Apple Home, Google Home, and Amazon Alexa. It supports Apple HomeKit Secure Video, ensuring private analysis and encryption of captured videos on your home hub devices (Apple TV or HomePod) and secure iCloud storage*. With an iCloud+ subscription, access the last 10 days of activity from one or more cameras.
  • A Clearer, More Natural Picture with PT: Capture every detail in stunning 2K ultra-high definition. Monitor real-time events in front of the camera at any time. Ensure the safety and well-being of your children, or check if they require assistance or are facing any issues. It also includes two-way audio communication and night vision capabilities. Even in large areas, you can still use the PT (pan and tilt) function for tracking and recording, with a 360° viewing perspective. Everything becomes convenient and reassuring.
  • Upgrades in Privacy Protection: E1 has a privacy mode that can rotate the camera to a specified position, and the user can customise the rotation angle, and disable the camera. You can also hide specific areas from the frame. For the first time, the E1 introduces a feature to disable audio recording or turn off the microphone, either manually or through automation. Additionally, the E1 offers support for WPA3, enhancing security to better safeguard your privacy and reduce potential vulnerabilities.
  • 24/7 Recording**& Multiple Storage Methods: 24/7 recording helps you check on your home at any time, providing you with peace of mind around the clock. However, you need to insert a Micro SD card (not included). You don’t have to worry about long-term recording causing video storage issues, because you can choose between an SD card or paid cloud storage based on needs (with one day of free use***). Multiple local or cloud storage options give users a more diverse range of choices, removing limitations.
  • Local Person Detection in Automations****: The E1 can recognise human shapes and perform 350-degree tracking shots. What’s more, it can still achieve integration with more smart devices based on Aqara’s multicategory ecosystem through AI person tracking. For example, when the E1 detects someone in the hallway, it can trigger the lights to turn on*. When the door and window sensors on the front door detect an opening, the E1 will turn to a specific position for precise shooting.
  • User-friendly Installation and Setting: Thanks to the use of Bluetooth networking technology in MagicPair, the E1 connection is stable and efficient. Furthermore, it has obtained Wi-Fi 6 certification. The camera supports both horizontal placement and inverted installation, thanks to the 1/4-inch threaded screw attachment and screw-mounting base. And it utilises a USB-C power interface.*****

* Home hub and subscription are required.

** 24/7 Recording requires Micro SD card.

*** 24-hour event cloud storage is included for free. Aqara paid membership (with a free trial available) can provide up to 30 days of event cloud storage.

**** Extra Aqara hub is required to achieve the automation.

***** Please note: the camera requires a 2A USB-A power supply, which is not included and should be purchased separately.
