Security cameras systemsare an effective way to secure you home and property. They provide a sense of security by scaring potential burglars away or producing evidence to capture criminals. Unfortunately, assumed high costs and complicated installation of security camera systems often discourage people from employing them.
As an alternative, a new wave of convenient, cost-effective multi-purpose surveillance cameras are hitting the market. These offer a budget-friendly option, making it easier for individuals and families to implement security camera systems within their homes. Thanks to a Kickstarter campaign, the next big thing may be Blink, an inexpensive wireless security camera boasting unbelievable features.
Aside from its affordability, Blink is wireless, powered by a battery promising over a year of battery life. The device will even send a reminder alert when power is finally low. Thanks to these features, Blink is very low maintenance and can easily be transferred from different locations.
Blink is also equipped with HD video, motion detection, temperature sensor, night vision, and a built in microphone. The smart phone app instantly alerts you of motion, changes in temperature, and WiFi connection as well as live viewing of your camera feed. Over time and with the proper resources, Blink could possibly more forward into the home automation realm.
Future advancements are not out of the question, but as a new product, there are bound to be downfalls. An issue to address is protection. Blink can be mounted easily to a wall or placed on a shelf, but it lacks safeguards for tampering. Once spotted, a person can damage or destroy it. Also, Blink is only suited for indoor use, but an outdoor option may be available in the future.
Currently, Blink has exceeded its pledge goal of $200,000, proving that the demand for convenience, affordability and security is high. To some skeptics, however, all of these features rolled into one device may be too good to be true. What do you think? Will Blink live up to the hype and become the new security camera craze?
