Earlier this summer, we cancelled our security monitoring system. We’ve had one for years, but I was getting tired of paying the monthly monitoring fee. We went a couple of months without anything, but for our peace of mind, we needed something to replace our old system. Needless to say, I’ve been on the hunt for a simple & easy DIY home security system.
I recently came across Blink by Amazon. It is the exact system that meets all of our needs. It’s an affordable, battery powered indoor/outdoor security system. Everything is wire-free and you can add multiple cameras for both inside and outside your home. The video home security & monitoring system is powered by batteries that last for two years!
The part I like most is that you can monitor it directly through the Blink app on your smartphone. It also syncs up with our Amazon Echo Dot. I can keep an eye out just by talking to Alexa! The app makes it super convenient to check our front porch for deliveries! You know, so I can make sure to grab my shipments before my husband gets home. LOL!!!! Don’t judge! 😉
The setup was simple and I got it all ready with a live feed within twenty minutes. Our Blink camera fits perfectly on a small pad on our front porch/door wall. We also have one by the garage lights. For those of you looking for a simple, wire free baby monitor, the Blink camera and system will work great! The live feed is great for nap time and easily accessible for viewing/monitoring via your smartphone. The live feed mode will drain the batteries a bit quicker though!
There are some additional features of the Blink HD Security System that make it a great choice for a simple & easy DIY Home Security System. The 720p HD security camera system ensures that you get a clear view of your home (and those important packages!)
Motion Detection (when armed) is a must have requirement for my husband. With the Blink HD Security System, the Motion Detection triggers a short video recording. The instant on and alerts, built in temperature sensor and low light illumination for nighttime monitoring are bonus features that make the system complete for our family.
If you’re on the hunt for a simple & easy DIY Home Security System at an affordable cost, Blink by Amazon is your answer. Don’t forget to Amazon Prime it to your home ASAP!
