This brand really caught my eye because it is battery operated. If you live in a place you don't own, the desire to install minimal power infrastructure can make some places nearly unreachable unless you have a battery operated device. Even if you do own the house, still, sometimes you don't want to run power cables to/on the outside of your house.
I did a lot of research and was surprised at how positive most of the reviews were.
Long story short, I was able to get it installed where I wanted it, outside of a 2nd story window pointing at a narrow walkway path alley between buildings, and it functions as I want it to and as I hoped.
Longer story: This is not even similar to a Nest or Dropcam. It is not 24x7 video streaming/recording. This is action-initiated only, and limited even further by "scheduling". For example, if you had them on the back door of a business or in a back room, you might schedule it to only be on at night when you're not there. It does run on batteries, afterall.
What it does is create clips, or "snippets" like you might think of when seeing security footage on TV many years ago. They are in color in the day and black and white in night, and the illuminator is really amazing at the distance it can shine and provide vision at night. The video is definitely not as crisp and is a bit blurry or soft at night, but it is definitely good enough to see "what's going on" etc.
Setup was simple. The app worked easily, if you are also setting up a sync module as well that was easy, and the camera was easy to pair and bring online. It took me a while to understand what the sync module was about. At first I thought it was some type of low power wireless to communicate with the camera but it's not. It's a command module that manages the settings in the camera, or cameras. It runs on wifi, as do the cameras. You don't necessarily need to have the camera near the sync module.
The packaging feels like cheap imported junk. The device also feels like it's a simple thing. But it works well, and it's cheap, and it doesn't have a monthly fee to store the video on the cloud!
Finally, you have a lot of configuration options in the app and they're mostly around sensitivity of the motion detection, length of clips, and when the camera should be armed.
I use this in a very narrow alley style walkway between buildings, and there is not a lot of action-- an occasional person or cat. I would imagine putting this on a street where there is constant traffic would drain the batteries a lot faster, and that's where I use my Nest Cameras.
This is not a Nest replacement for most. It's definitely a disruptor in the home camera industry, and differentiated from what's in the market already, at at that!
I waited for the weather proof one to come out before placing my first order, and I've now ordered a second one to test the boundaries of the wifi outside!
I'll update the review if things change. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you have specific Q&A.
Pros:Light weight and small form factor, cordless many options to mount in areas that cannot be reached with power cord. battery powered, purported to have 2 year battery life, easy to setup and user friendly app, 720P with 1080p coming in future update (1080p coming to XT model only), 110 degree field of view, Temp sensor, Infrared, built in mic, PIR sensor, support android and iOS, free cloud storage,works with IFTTT, integrates with Amazon Alexa.
Also I like Blink's vision they have for their security camera as discussed at CES 2017 they plan to add a battery and Cellular backup WiFi module. This is great because if you lose power your module and internet will still work keeping the camera operable to monitor your home. Also a plus is for plans for home "Seecurity" where Blink will provide monitoring service and have accessory like siren, keypad, entry sensors. more of a DIY home security system not just camera monitoring system
Where Blink fails and they FAIL MISERABLY is in their lack of customer support. They have no customer support number, they only have email support and with that they never respond. They also do no respond via social media. So if you are not tech savvy I would hold off on Blink until they get REAL customer and Technical support. Sorry but to me it is a deal breaker. DIY home security is where we are headed and if you do not have the staff to support your vision you will be left behind!
Sync Module connected to Blink XT has now dropped connected over 15 times since first setup. Also it does not want to update the firmware and there is no MANUAL option to update it. I feel module is the issue however thanks to Blink's Non Existent Support I cannot be for sure. They called 6/9/17 6:21pm and left a voicemail said will call back Monday. here we are Wednesday 06/14/17 still no follow up call no help received. Support is absolute Garbage! In Process of packaging and returning All blink cams!
**UPDATE 06/28/2017*** Today my cams kept sending notifications even AFTER being disarmed in app! IT was not a PHONE issue as this happened in Blink app on 3 different phones and a WiFi only iPad so it is an Blink issue. Tried to contact their NON EXISTENT SUPPORT and of course heard NOTHING back. I even posted videos on on their Twitter. still nothing the are the worst customer support EVER!
***UPDATE 07/01/2017*** After having the Blink XT less than a month and with settings as follows...Re-trigger set to 10 secs, Sensitivity 4, clip length 10 seconds, End clips early if motion stops ENABLED, IR control set to Auto, and IR intensity set to LOW, and Mic enabled ...the batteries are DEAD!!!!! How do I know. well at 2am in morning it recorded on last clip during clip IR was blinking off/on then nothing worked after that. Funny thing was before I went to bed that night checked the settings and battery read "OK". So XT DOES NOT live up to 2 year battery life that Blink Hyped! Maybe with Min setting and if the camera was in a closet and NEVER was triggered and it sits idle in a "controlled" lab batteries might last 2 years. If you plan to use this cam OUTSIDE or in area of high activity the batteries will DIE fast so expect to spend a lot on batteries or, if an option, ( was not an option in my case) plug it to an outlet so batteries are not an issue. however this again is problem as it now REDUCES your mounting option as you will need to be near outlet. I have something I am testing now to resolve the battery issue that allows me to charge cam WITHOUT plugging into outlet. I WILL NOT POST MY FIX HERE..I am not doing Blink ANY FAVORS!!! if you want my fix idea which cost under $10. Direct message me.
Finally after months of NO support ,and no thanks to blink customer service, the wifi sync module disconnection issue was finally resolved. And no it had nothing to do with my Wi-Fi as others may have suggested. I currently have a BA in network engineering and 14 years related work experience in network engineering.I work for fortune 10 major communication company. my home Wi-Fi network is not the issue as. I have mentioned in my review I have several other security cameras including the new ring Spotlight cam which is further away from my Wi-Fi router then the blink XT and it was still getting better signal. the problem was the WiFi module and finally after the recent app update the firmware updated on the module and now I am not experiencing any more drop connections. but again this was no thanks to blink customer support. they still never emailed me or never replied to me on social media so as others may have said they pushed the firmware update to them...in my case they completely ignored me . Now that the issue has been resolved the cameras are starting to warm up to me a little bit but I still STRONGLY DISLIKE Blink lack of support And the battery life is still not as advertised .
Only two items that would seal the deal are opening it up for third party software (closed system is intended to milk out the cloud fees) and the option for smartphone alerts to be distinguished from the rest.
