What people are saying 

Blink’s outdoor wireless cameras have earned a 4.3-star rating based on more than 5,400 customer reviews. The easy to set-up cameras have been called an “inexpensive” camera option that can double as a video doorbell for anyone working from home or looking to keep an eye on their front door from afar.

“The video and image quality is excellent,” one shopper wrote, adding that Blink provides “clear” night vision footage. “The camera produces very crisp and pictures and video,” another said.

Blink's exterior security cameras can be placed strategically around your home and property.

“It has great night vision even in some of our poorly lit areas,” said a customer who lives in a rural area with “poor” internet. Aside from the positive feedback from customers, there are somethings to consider.

Some reviews mention there is a “slight” delay in notifications from the camera and corresponding app. Another thing shoppers have mentioned is that if you purchase a set of cameras, you can’t create individual schedules or preferences for each camera — they act as a unit. So, if you have a camera at your back door and one at your front door, their schedules will be the same, even if you use one camera more than the other.

Verdict

If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to up your home security, Blink’s Home Smart Security might be for you.

However, if you’re looking to have multiple cameras with different settings, this on-sale set of wireless cameras might not be the way to go.  Scroll down for more sale items during Amazon’s latest sale.
