Eufy has a new Kickstarter campaign for what it calls “the see-everything smart lock.” It’s the Eufy Video Smart Lock, a 3-in-1 device that works as a fingerprint-detecting lock, a 2K, wide-angle camera and a dual motion-detection doorbell, the company said.

Now that’s a capable gadget. And it has a substantial price to match. See below.

Eufy Video Smart Lock: Lock, camera and doorbell

Eufy, owned by Anker, recently released a (very) smart scale. It said its new Video Smart Lock has raised more than $1.2 million in its Kickstarter campaign.

The smart lock is a 3-in-1 device. It’s a smart lock that will recognize your fingerprint in 0.3 seconds. Not only that, but it’s a 2K resolution security camera as well as a dual motion detection doorbell.

The device incorporates video doorbell notification technology and smart lock fingerprint security.

The chip in the lock allows fast fingerprint recognition. The lock also includes an antislip film to prevent your finger from slipping in the rain or snow. And, with advanced matching algorithms, it analyzes the most-used fingerprints during every press.

Your fingerprint is not the only way to unlock the device, however.

“We provide multiple ways to unlock with Video Smart Lock: fingerprint, password, remote Wi-Fi via eufy Security app, physical keys, and voice unlock with Alexa or Google Assistant,” said Eufy’s FAQ. It also noted the lock is not compatible with HomeKit, unfortunately.

The smart security camera includes a 2K camera, which enables a detailed view. And the wide, 160-degree field of view and 4:3 format allow you to see a lot of ground clearly from inside your home. In addition, the camera’s wide dynamic range helps make videos clear, even on bright, sunny days, Eufy said.

The company lists the Eufy Video Smart Lock’s MSRP at $399. But you can get it for less with early pledge during the Kickstarter campaign. Super early-bird and early-bird pledge levels are sold out. As of Sunday, more than 1,400 pledges at the Kickstarter Special level below remained.

Shipping is expected in May, but to “only certain countries.” If pledge spots appear to remain but you can’t click through to do so, your country may not be on the list.

Price: $269
