Blink Home Security Camera Review

This post is sponsored by Blink.


link for Home is a completely wire-free home security camera. That’s why I love it so much. I can literally plop it down in my plant or pretty much anywhere in my house and still be in control of everything in my home. I breakdown all of the features, functionality and why I love it.

Why I Love Blink

Living in an apartment, I’m always hesitant to bolt anything into the wall, that’s why Blink is such a great option. No wires means no drilling or concealing anything. The two AA batteries are rated to last 2 years, so you don’t have to worry about constantly switching batteries easier.

Blink Cameras

The two camera models are the Blink and Blink XT, with XT being designed for outdoor use.

Blink XT has better night vision, it uses an infrared light to better spot nighttime activity, while the Blink has only a white LED best for indoor settings. Blink XT can be used outdoors because it’s weatherproof and rated for the elements.

Blink functions from 32° to 95°F while the Blink XT can work from -4° to 113° F, meaning it should be able to survive most winters in NYC and even the hottest summer days.

I’m now able to keep a look out all over my apartment when I’m not around with Blink’s flexible no wire portability and direct streaming to my phone.
