Can You Connect Eufy Cameras to a Screen or Monitor?

Sure, you can connect a Eufy Camera to any compatible screen or monitor. Given that modern TVs, Mac devices, or personal computers have larger displays with clearer pixels, they are also capable of connecting to and viewing your smart camera’s footage.

You can connect your Eufy Camera to your device by accessing the live feed through the Eufy web portal, casting, using an Android emulator, etc. Also, your device will connect to your Eufy camera if it comes with Chromecast, HomeKit, Apple TV, Amazon Alexa, or Fire TV features.

But even if you do not have a smart screen, there are several other methods to connect your Eufy Camera, which we’ll discuss in the section below.

How to Connect Eufy Cameras to a Screen or Monitor: 9 Easy Ways!

So, there are several ways to watch your Eufy Camera from your screen or monitor. Don’t worry about the steps; we’ll explain them in detail, so keep reading.

1. Direct Connection Using a DVR or NVR

Direct Connection Using a DVR or NVR

Connecting a security camera using a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) or NVR (Network Video Recorder) is arguably the simplest way to connect a wireless Eufy Camera to your screen. No need to connect a router or download any app—just plug & play!

With these systems, you can have continuous 24/7 video recording and watch the recording on your screen/monitor at any time. However, you’ll have to use the HDMI cable to connect your camera to your screen.

By the way, the steps of using a DVR to connect your Eufy camera are basically the same as the NVR’s. To do this, start by connecting your camera to the DVR/NVR device using an HDMI cable.

After that, use an HDMI or VGA cable to connect the DVR/NVR device to the HDMI input port on your TV, PC, or Mac device. Once you complete the setup, power on all the devices to watch your Eufy camera feed on your screen.

2. Using the Web Portal

You can view your Eufy camera on your screen or monitor by accessing the live view through the Eufy web portal. The process is relatively straightforward as well. Simply visit the Eufy “web address” and log into your account using your registered eufySecurity account details.

Using the Web Portal

You should know, though, that while the Eufy web portal allows you to watch the live feed, it doesn’t yet support recording playback. However, if you are a cloud storage user, you’ll be able to use this interface to access your recorded videos.

3. Cast Your Phone or Tablet on Your Monitor

Casting your smartphone or tablet screen lets you mirror your device so you can view recordings and live footage exactly as you see it but on a larger screen. The key thing about this method is that it requires an internet connection.

Casting your phone or tablet is different for iOS and Android devices. To cast iOS devices, 

Scroll down from the top-right corner on your screen and go to the Control Center. In other iOS models, you’ll find this feature by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.

Once you are here, look for the “AirPlay” or “Screen Mirroring” icon and click to open. Now, select the device where you want to cast your iOS screen. You can now open the Eufy App and view your video streams on the screen.

For Android devices, scroll down from the top of your screen, and depending on your device model, click “Smart View” or “Mirror Screen”. Now, pick the device where you want to cast your Android screen. That’s it!

4. Download the Eufy Security Camera App

Another option to view your Eufy Camera from your monitor is to download the Eufy Security App directly onto your device.

If you are using a MacBook or Chromebook, the process is a lot simpler since the Eufy App is readily accessible on these devices. Therefore, use your MacBook to download the Eufy App from the App Store, and Chromebook users can download it online from the Google Play Store.

Once you download the app, open it and log into your account using your eufySecurity account information. Afterward, go to the specific camera whose view you want to see to stream its video.

5. Use an Android Emulator

If you are neither a Chromebook nor a MacBook user, you should know that the Eufy Application is unavailable on the Microsoft Store. This means you need to rely on another method to download it, and the best way to do this is to use an Android emulator.

You can now use the­ emulator to run Android apps on your PC; it’ll be like using the­ application on your phone or tablet. For security reasons, we highly suggest installing an emulator from Blue­Stacks or NoxPlayer.

To use an Android emulator, access your PC’s web browser and install your pre­ferred emulator. Once that’s done, ope­n the emulator, log in to your Google Play account, and go to the­ Google Play Store. The ne­xt step is searching for the Eufy App on the search bar, installing it, and launching the­ application on your PC.

go to the­ Google Play Store

Now log in with your Eufy account details and go to the specific Eufy Cam within the app. The camera feed will be available for you to view.

6. Play the Videos Stored on the Eufy Cam SD Card

Eufy Cam SD Card

Eufy Cameras usually record and store footage on a microSD card and save clips when they cannot upload them to the cloud or when the internet is down. So you can easily view the footage recorded by your camera by removing this SD card and inserting it into a micro SD card reader.

After that, plug the card reader into your PC or Mac and then open and view the files with a media player. The shortcoming with this solution is that you can only watch the recordings, not the live feed.

7. Connect Using Fire TV Stick

You can view a Eufy camera on your screen with the help of an HDMI streaming device, such as Amazon Fire Stick. It is a quick and convenient way to check on your premises from the comfort of your coach. All you need is a compatible device for streaming and an app that supports it.

To set this up, first, make sure your Fire TV and Eufy Camera are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, insert the Amazon Fire Stick into your TV’s HDMI Port and download the Eufy Security App from the Amazon Appstore on your Fire TV.

After this, open the Eufy App, log into your Eufy account, and go to the specific Eufy Camera to view the feed you want to monitor.

The benefit of using a Fire TV device is that it gives full control and viewing—you do not have to control streaming from your smartphone. The app will provide all the necessary features, such as alarm settings, playback, recordings, etc.

Additionally, if you connect your Eufy Camera to Alexa using the Fire TV, you can view the live feed on your camera using voice commands. For instance, “Alexa, show Front Door Camera on Fire TV.” Alexa will stream the video hands-free, so you don’t need to open an app or fumble over your smartphone.

8. Use Google Chromecast

A Google Chromecast device is another popular way to watch your Eufy camera on a big screen. Chromecast provides an easy wireless solution to cast the Eufy App from your smartphone to your TV.

The process of linking your Google Chrome­cast device only takes a few steps. Just make sure­ to connect the Google Chromecast Stick to the same Wi-Fi network as your Eufy Camera before inserting it into your TV’s HDMI Port.

Next, launch the­ Google Home App on your smartphone or table­t, go to Devices, click on “Add”, and the­n select “Add Device­”.

From here, search for “EufySecurity” and once the login page pops up, enter your username and password. Now return to the homepage, open the Eufy App, and bring up the live feed of the camera you want to cast on TV.

9. Connect Using Apple TV

Since Eufy Cameras are compatible with Apple HomeKit, you can connect them to the Apple Home App and view the feed on your TV. This method applies only to select cameras, including Eufy Indoor Cam 2K/Pan & tilt 2K, EufyCam 2C/2C Pro, and the EufyCam 2/2 Pro.

With that said, you can connect your Eufy Camera in four simple steps. Start by taking your Apple TV remote and press the TV button to access the Control Center. Now, go to the HomeKit and set it up.

The next step would be opening the Apple Home App on your iOS device and selecting the “+” icon.

At this point, you just have to follow the on-screen instructions to add your camera. Now you can view your Eufy Camera easily on your Smart TV.

Additional Tips for Connecting Your Eufy Camera to a Screen or Monitor

It is important to ensure your Eufy Security Camera is compatible with your screen/monitor—it will save you from the frustration of setting up the devices. Here is what you need to check for:

  • Eufy Camera Specifications: Find out if your came­ra supports a direct connection to a scree­n/monitor. You’ll be able to find this information on the manufacture­r’s website, user manual, or came­ra’s packaging.
  • Device Integration: Connect your security camera wirelessly if you’ve got a smart TV with built-in apps for receiving and displaying camera feeds.
  • Video Resolution: Ensure your screen or monitor can display the Eufy camera’s video quality. For example, some older TV or PC models may not support high-definition video feeds from Eufy cameras.
  • Supported Input: Take a look at the ports available on your TV or PC. Check if your device has the input needed to connect the camera, like HDMI or VGA. If it lacks the necessary input, your device may not be compatible with the Eufy security camera.
  • Get Additional Hardware: If your screen or monitor isn’t directly compatible with the Eufy Camera, don’t worry! There are available hardware solutions to help you bridge the gap. For instance, if your monitor only has a VGA port and your camera uses HDMI, you can use an HDMI-to-VGA converter.
