How to choose a home security camera

How to choose a home security camera

It’s always worthwhile to regularly ensure your home and property is safe and secure. But how? Prioritising home security and monitoring cameras is a great step to take to protect yourself. There are a plethora of options available and so it can often be difficult to find which solution offers the best way to maximise peace of mind. So, here are some key things to consider when choosing a home security camera. Whether you are purchasing for Mother’s Day or for yourself, give the gift of tech!


How do you want to access the footage? While CCTV options have its uses, it’s handy to be able to see instantly the footage captured, straight from your smart phone, whilst you are out and about. With the cameras running on the Wifi, it’s possible to keep tabs on your home from work, aboard or even in the next room. A great feature of Blink cameras is that the footage is held via cloud, with no need for subscription fees, therefore you don’t have to worry about additional costs.  


There really is no need to spend huge amounts for snazzy, over-complicated and expensive CCTV equipment. These days, there are ways to still provide security solutions that don’t break the bank. There are smart home security options that are cost-effective with a one off, upfront cost only.


Do you want to live stream 24/7 potentially irrelevant happenings or do you want to see what’s happening when it's essential. With motion-detected alerts you can be instantly warned of more serious incidents or strange occurrences via your smartphone. Do you want to be able to monitor your home inside and outside within certain schedules? A Blink camera allows you to do all this and more. 

Ease of use

You don’t have to have an over-complicated system. Instead, an easy to use system that requires less than 5 minutes set-up offers instant peace of mind. Should you run into technical difficulties, you can access Blink tech support directly via the app. 

The Blink home security cameras are a perfect solution to monitor what’s happening inside and outside your property.

Welcome to our UK blog!

Welcome to our UK blog!

This is our second blog post – welcome everyone!

The Blink journey has been a whirlwind, and we are excited to keep the momentum going now that we have successfully launched in the UK!

Kick-Starter Campaign

As some of you may know, Blink  began as many projects do nowadays: with a Kickstarter campaign. Somehow, among the hundreds of innovative ideas, people found ours. One supporter became two, ten supporters became one hundred, and in what seemed to be a “blink” of an eye, our humble project snowballed to having nearly 7000 backers with over $1,000,000 pledged.

This community shared in the same belief that we had when the idea of Blink was born: that true peace of mind doesn’t (and shouldn’t) stop at the front door. With this “Aha” moment as our inspiration, we became determined to make affordable, whole-home monitoring a reality for everyone.

Here's what to expect from our blogs

In our ongoing commitment to this mission and vision, we’ll use the blog to pose questions and gather feedback on Blink, its features (current and future), and your experiences. And while we’ll continue to post regular Kickstarter updates for both backers and pre-order customers to follow along with the project, you’ll also find insightful tips, advice and the latest updates on all things related to Blink.

We encourage all of our followers to post replies here, reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter, or email us with ideas, questions, or comments so that we can continue to create and expand upon a system that’s most meaningful to our users.

As always, thanks to every one of our supporters for taking us into your homes and making us a part of your family. We want your feedback and suggestions so please, keep your thoughts and ideas coming!
