Blink cameras are affordable options for those who want some sort of security camera network that monitors their home. Blink indoor and outdoor cameras have most of the same features: they record 1080p video and support infrared night vision, two-way audio, motion alerts and temperature monitoring. As the name suggests, Blink Outdoor devices have a weatherproof design, allowing you to mount them above your front door, above your garage, or in any other outdoor area you want to monitor.
Arguably the best thing about Blink cameras is their wireless design. Neither the indoor nor the outdoor devices need to be plugged into a power outlet, but each runs on two AA batteries and communicates wirelessly with the Blink Sync module. That gives you a lot more freedom when it comes to placing these gadgets in your home. Also, the batteries should last up to two years before you need to replace them.
If you’d rather try the system out before diving in completely, the Blink Mini is a great way to do that. It has all the features of the standard Blink cameras, but it’s wired rather than wireless. While that makes it a little less versatile, it’s hard to argue with a capable security camera that only costs $30.
The video doorbell combines the functionality of a Blink camera with intelligent doorbell functions. Along with supporting two-way audio and motion alert, it records video in 1080p and you can choose to hardwire it to your existing doorbell system or leave it wireless.
