First, you cannot shoot through glass. So if you want to place it indoors, looking into your yard, you are out of luck. I'm not just talking about reflections in the glass but the motion sensor doesn't work through glass.
Second, the motion sensor is based on infrared changes not on actual motion. So a change in temperature can set it off. That's fine, but it means if you use it in your garage or sunroom, places without HVAC, you will get false alarms, even on the lowest setting.
Third, and most important, while being battery operated is pretty cool, the batteries in my setup last only a few months, not a year or more. I bought three cameras and one ran out at about the six week mark, and another at about the 8 week mark. At that rate, I'm just going to use rechargable batteries (which is what they should come with) and replace them monthly until I can wire up USB power.
1. Love the portability and the nifty idea of powering the sync module at all times so that the cameras themselves use very little juice.
2. The size of these babies is nice too. Somewhat inconspicuous wherever you decide to place them.
3. Mounting options included are well designed to give you close to unlimited viewing angles.
4. I can view Live from any camera from anywhere! (I would never have purchased these otherwise.)
Now for my CONS (negative feedback) (For all stated features, I'd give 3 stars):
1. The setup for experienced IT professional is frustrating to say the least. We NEVER have the "assumed" home-use configuration on our home networks-- we have our home systems locked down for incoming AND outgoing internet traffic through the firewall too. This makes connecting the sync module a very tedious task indeed! (More on my workaround below).
2. Connecting over WiFi ONLY is silly. A wired connection is ALWAYS more reliable (especially when the sync unit has a built in wired network interface). I'm sure future releases will fix this.
3. Not allowing one to change IP addresses for the sync module and cameras is annoying.
4. I can't seem to change the name of the system! It remains "BLINK####".
5. You can't take a picture WHILE you are viewing the live feed. This needs to change because in the event I "see" something awry, I'd like to snap a photo for safe keeping!
6. You can't record video in LIVE view either (see above reasons needed). I've read this may be possible in future firmware releases.
7. The Live View timeout is too short (I get it to save batteries) but I'd like to be able to lengthen this especially if I decide to run off USB power instead of batteries.
8. I'd like to hear 2-way sound.
With all that said, I'm sure with time, BLINK will improve their product and when they do, I'll revisit this review. Here are a few other feedback items to help. BLINK should indicate all protocols and ports needed to allow communications to the outside. That way IT pros wouldn't have to spend hours gathering this info ourselves.
For those other IT pros who care, here is the info you'll need to track down the DHCP addresses of the sync module and cameras, and the protocols and ports used to lock down your "home" firewalls:
MAC OIU f4:b8:5e (in your DHCP tables)= Texas Instruments= Cameras
MAC OIU 00:03:7f =Atheros Communications, Inc = Sync Modules
TCP 22 (SSH)
UDP 123 (NTP)
This list may be incomplete but these came from watching traffic at least 5 times from all devices and this is what I documented.
The iPhone app worked perfectly. Setting up the app to the units took only a few minutes. Instructions were clear with prompts. Everything worked perfectly.
One was mounted on our porch (away from the weather). The other two were interior with one facing the back, The one on the rear could not be protected thus kept on the window sill.
Setting up the angle, tilt, etc. was made easy with the Live feed. That was about all there was. However...
There are a number of adjustments within the app for each camera. For the front, I found that I needed to adjust the sensitivity. I didn't need the light, so that was switched off. Considering the time it takes to walk up the entrance sidewalk, I adjusted the time.
The interior unit is switched off. When away, we can switch it on.
I should mention the clarity was surprisingly good. The cameras have a wide angle lens.
On the Blink website, there is a promotion for preordering exterior cameras. If I were to purchase these three there instead of through Amazon, I would have a discount price for one exterior unit. The return policy made me decide otherwise. They are not returnable if used. If I tried these and they didn't work to my expectations, I would be stuck.
I gave this five stars for now.
