We liked the expandable nature of the system. So, you can start with one camera, and easily increase the reach of the system by adding more cameras at a later date. The motion detection technology we found to be very sound. Whenever a person walked on by, the system was able to pick up the movement 100% of the time. When it does this, the alerts generated to your phone is instantaneous.
We liked that there were no ongoing monthly fees, so this is a very cost effective option. This doesn’t come at the expense of reduced functionality. In fact, we found that the Blink XT Home Security Camera System performed a lot better than other monthly based systems.
We liked the night vision technology, and the images captured under darkness are very good. Some cameras that we have reviewed are poor in darkness, but we loved the Blink’s night vision capture.
