Product review: Blink home security camera system

"Utterly simple but extremely powerful, it’s a very reassuring system."

Time tested four months

Price £109.99 

What’s good

Utterly simple but extremely powerful WiFi-based home security system. Completely wire-free, Blink comprises of a battery-powered full-colour HD camera and a plug-in WiFi hub that allows you to stream footage straight from the camera to your smartphone via the Blink app. The camera activates via a motion-sensitive PIR, which then sends an alert to your phone. I’ve put this system in my garage where, once linked to my home WiFi network and armed via the app, it’ll keep watch over my bike and, in order to preserve battery life, only starts recording if it detects movement. The camera even has a separate light which you can remotely activate via the app to illuminate (and petrify) any intruders. The camera also keeps tabs on the ambient temperature too. All in all, it’s a very reassuring system. 


What’s not

You have to remember to activate it and deactivate it yourself, which is fine as long as you remember to do it when you go out, but not so good if you don’t!
