How Smart Home Surveillance Cameras can help protect the Elderly

How Smart Home Surveillance Cameras can help protect the Elderly

According to the Office for National Statistics (2010), over half of all people aged 75 and over live alone. At such a vulnerable age, it can be worrying knowing  that a loved one is living by themselves in a time of their life where extra care or assistance may be required under exceptional circumstances.

On 18th October , Blink received a message  from a woman who explained that, after installing a Blink 3-camera system for her father on Friday, it “saved his life” on Sunday. Judith Dutton saw that her 89-year-old father had taken a fall as a result of the motion captured footage alert sent to her phone from Blink  As a result of this, she was promptly able to get medical aid to her father within 39 minutes of the alert.

Smart home surveillance cameras, such as Blink, can offer peace of mind in knowing that you can provide a watchful eye over your loved ones when they are vulnerable.

Peace of mind for parents with kids returning from school

Peace of mind for parents with kids returning from school

It's nearly time to go back to school, or for some, to start! The school run kicks back into gear, and the summer holidays slowly become just a memory. It can all add up to be tricky though, and for any parent or guardian, the safety and whereabouts of your children is a constant concern. Knowing when they’re home safe is peace of mind that goes a long way.

One of the simplest and easiest ways to achieve this peace of mind is to install a wireless home security camera that lets you know the very moment your children arrive home , via  a video clip notification directly to your smartphone. With Blink, all of this and more is provided, with up to 1080p HD recording quality and motion activated technology.

With just two standard AA lithium batteries, a Blink camera can run for up to two years until the power runs out, meaning you’ll never miss a moment. Additionally, users can watch a live stream from their Blink cameras anywhere in the world, at any time – ideal for making sure the ones you love are safe.
