Blink’s little (and we mean little) home security cameras are a great fit for straightforward video surveillance at a price nearly anyone can afford.
These cameras are a great place to start adding more security to your life, but you can’t build a full home security system around Blink cameras.
Blink security cams are fully IFTTT (If This Then That) compatible, but you have to integrate with different brands if you want to add things like door and window sensors or professional monitoring.
We found that Blink delivers everything it promises—almost. One of the company’s biggest bragging points is its two-year battery life. Because we love a truly wireless security camera, we were stoked at the possibility of going 24 months without replacing batteries.
But we got a lot of low battery warnings during streaming—and you have to constantly turn off the light and motion detection on the Blink Indoor camera to save battery life—so we’re not sure that either incarnation of the Blink security camera lives up to that promise.
