Ratings and Reviews
One of the better wireless camera implementations but...
I’ve had the blink system for about a year. I’ve been happy with the video quality, and the ease of use. The app is easy to quickly use, and the cameras have survived outside in the elements for a year. Claims of a 2 year battery life seem exaggerated at best, however. The o YL way you’re getting 2 years of battery life is if you have your cameras basically disarmed for a majority of the hours in the day, which kind of defeats the purpose of a security camera system. But I bought it expecting that, and I am not disappointed. Batteries last about 6 months, give or take. Would I like 2 years between battery changes? Of course, but six months is still impressive.
As for the app; it’s good! My one request would be that they move the ability to schedule arm and disarm times for each individual camera, rather than the system as a whole. I have cameras in front of my house, and one in my backyard. When my kids are playing out back they’re constantly triggering the backyard camera, which drives the battery life into the ground. I’d like to be able to disarm that one at a scheduled time, while leaving the front cameras armed. I know I could do it manually, but that sort of defeats the purpose.
I’d be willing to give the app 5 stars if that feature was added.
Purchased system while awaiting back surgery. Can quickly look outside and see what’s going on. Has limited written instructions but the videos and pictures paint a clear picture. It takes no time at all to set this up with the app. Battery life has been great. Keep in mind that when you increase the camera settings, (image quality, duration of recording, etc) of course the batteries are not going to last two years. Come on folks, don’t give negative feedback because of that! Plus the app monitors battery life, and wireless signal strengths. It will also tell you when a camera has high use and alerts you if the battery is low.
I will say, the night vision is amazing! I am really impressed of how bright the image is. The camera sensitivity was set to 6 and it was picking up birds flying by. Adjusted it to 5 and it doesn’t, catch them anymore. The mount that came with it are simple. You can tilt up/down and swivel it left and right.
The phone notifications of movement is very timely and the camera settings in the app are great. Setting up the cameras are easy and is not rocket science. I have two cameras now and plan to install more in the future.
The cameras work as expected. The setup was easy and I had the cameras up in running in under ten minutes. I installed a second system at a remote cabin in the woods and they work just as well. I rarely get false alarms from wind and I can now see the wildlife passing through my campgrounds. After seeing them work my father bought a system, his neighbor and his neighbor’s friend bought two and did the same thing I did. All are happy with Blink.
One suggestion is to allow system sharing by allowing the owner account to grant access to other Blink users. This way I can share access to my cabin to my family without including my home system. SmartThings had the same issue and recently fixed it with an app update in December 2017. Also I would light the option to turn off the red record light.
Also to potential buyers... the white cameras use an LED to light up the area at night while the XT is true infrared and stealthy. On the XTs just make sure to turn the blue light off before installing the batteries. The switch is near the battery holder inside.
