    Security camera with interesting possibilites

    All, I just discovered this Kickstarter funded company about to launch a new completely wire-free camera. It looks very promising. I am thinking of using it to keep tabs on the rig when we are not there. Since we have a wireless network inside the coach, it should be able to work whether we are on the road or at our home park, as long as we have an active internet connection. I like also the fact it has a temperature monitoring function. And, no additional monitoring or storage fees.

    The Blink Camera connects wirelessly to the "Sync Module" that will then connect to your personal wifi network -- then to the internet -- to be viewed via smartphone.

    • HD video
      720p HD video capture ensures that you get a clear view of your home or business, with minimal distortion or blurring.




    • Motion detection
      Blink's feature-rich system includes a motion detector; when armed, any detected motion triggers the recording of a short video clip.




    • Instant alerts
      Quickly receive a push notification or email alert with a link to the video attached, so you can decide how to respond.




    • Live View mode
      Easily access on-demand video streaming through the Blink app.




    • Instant On
      With Blink’s Instant On feature, video recording starts within a fraction of a second, so you’ll get a clear look at who or what triggered the alert.




    • Temperature sensor
      Easily monitor the temperature in your home, and customize Blink to alert you if it gets too hot or too cold.




    • Night vision
      Blink's LED illuminator, coupled with advanced low-light performance of our proprietary technology, ensures that you'll see what’s happening, day or night.




    • Built-in microphone
      A built-in microphone allows one-way audio access, so you can both see and hear what’s happening at home.

    Re: Security camera with interesting possibilites

    I've been thinking about getting a system to monitor temperature (or power outage) in our coach to alert us of AC/furnace malfunctions when we leave the pets alone during the day. Sounds like this might work if we had wifi.

    Looks promising. Were you able to get any cost on a system?

    It's not available yet, they are beta testing now. If you pre-order (there's a link on the website) it's $79 for one camera and sync, plus $10 shipping and handling. Other configurations available too.

    Is this system using WiFi data continually, or just when there is an "event"? Most of us with mobile cellular WiFi couldn't afford the data usage.

    My understanding is when it is activated/armed, and the motion detector triggers, it records a 4 second video. It sends you a text or email telling you, and you can choose to view that video. The way it sounded, it is not a data hungry event. Now you can choose to view the camera in "live view" which would be a continuous feed, and that could be data intensive if you did it often.

    I also read you can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detector to keep pets from triggering it.

    I pre-ordered one. I really like the temperature alert for our dogs when we're out.

    Re: Security camera with interesting possibilites

    About 6 months ago I purchased a wireless security system through Walmart called OPLINK. I got 3 door sensors a motion detector and a wireless siren for $190.00. I can add cameras when ever I want. It doesn't have a temperature sensor. It will notify me on my cell phone in case of a alarm. I really like this system.

    Re: Security camera with interesting possibilites

    I ordered one that sounds very much like this one from www.ring.com - it requires a wireless network and I assumed it would work simply with my Verizon data plan.. Wrong assumption. It does need a wireless network, other than the Verizon hot spot. After talking with Ring while I was trying to set it up, it was decided that I would send it back. Traveling via RV meant I could only get it to work when there was a Wifi access and that's erratic, so back it went... It would be great for home use or anyone who stays in one place.
