The Blink Home Security Camera System has been my go-to for home security for the last couple of years.  I not only use the cameras to keep an eye on my place for intruders or visitors while I am gone, but also to check in on my toy poodle while I am away.

The Blink systems are relatively inexpensive as far as security systems go.  You can buy single indoor systems, outdoor systems, systems with voice now, and replacement cameras if you want to increase your home coverage.

I currently have three cameras outside.  One I use to check anyone entering my driveway and the other is positioned to see anyone who might be pulling up to or entering my garage.  The third camera is positioned to see my front walk and front door.  As you can see from the screenshots from my phone, the quality if very good and you can zoom in on the pic to get a much closer look at your visitors.

I also have 5 of the original cameras sitting in various places throughout the interior of the home. I have not had any intruders yet, thankfully, but it allows me to keep a close eye on my 14 year old toy poodle:)

Although I have not yet received the XT2 which continues with the same amazing features as the original, it also has now integrated an audio stream.  Can’t wait to get my hands on one.  It will go at the front and garage doors.  Then I will use the existing cameras to increase the coverage around my house.

Blink Home Security Camera System Summary

The Blink Home Security Camera system is normally advertised with two year battery life. You will find that if you have a lot of activity like I do on my garage camera, that the batteries will not last that long. However, they do last for a long time even with a lot of activity. Replacing the batteries once or twice a year is a minor inconvenience for the peace and security that the system does provide.

Actual Blink Screenshot

I do have a video on my YouTube Channel which not only goes over these points, but also shows some screen shots, like the one to the right, and video from my current camera system. Without boring you with more details, I would like for you to check out this system for yourself.  You will be glad you did.  Blink is an Amazon owned company so you know you will have dependable support also.
