Finally! An Affordable Home Monitoring System Even Renters Will Love
If you live in an apartment building, then your idea of theft prevention may be praying that you remembered to lock your door before rushing out for the day and hoping that the security cameras in your building actually work. But guess what renters? Your home security options don’t have to end there. We are super stoked to share an alternative option with you called Blink.
Blink is an affordable wireless monitoring system that features HD video technology in addition to motion and temperature sensors. How affordable is Blink you may ask? Blink starts at just $49 with no monthly fees! How’s that for affordable?
Want to see what your cat does while you’re away? Just set Blink up on any wall, entryway or the window of your choice, then select the Live View mode from your smartphone to take a look at your place in real-time. The best thing about Blink (besides the price) is that it delivers more than a full year of battery life, so you don’t have to worry about charging it all of the time.
Take a look at this video to see Blink in action:
We’re not the only ones with our eyes on Blink. Thanks to thousands of backers, the Kickstarter campaign for the home monitoring and alert system has already more than doubled its project goal of $200,000 with just under a month left.
What do you think of Blink? Would you use it to protect your home? Let us know in the comments below!
