Traditional home monitoring systems are quickly going by the wayside with the latest advances in technology. Security doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg anymore, nor does it need to be complicated. Protect your loved ones, valuables and pets with home monitoring systems that can connect to your mobile devices.
Blink, a company who got its start in 2014, has just released a revolutionary multi-unit, HD, wire-free home monitoring and alert system for an ultra affordable price. For just $299 you can get five cameras that are battery powered and completely wire-free, giving you the freedom to set up a home monitoring system in any fashion you like.
There are no hidden fees built into the cost of the hardware as Blink does not require monthly subscription fees like current alarm systems. Instead you can monitor your home from an Android or iOS app to access your video feeds.
“Through this app you will receive motion and temperature alerts, be able to watch live HD video for instant home insight, and customize various camera and alert settings to make the system just right for your apartment, home, or business.”
Boston, Mass. – (3/2/2016) – Blink, an industry leader in battery-powered wire-free smart HD home monitoring and alert systems, today released customer data showing that multi-camera systems are the new norm in home monitoring. With systems starting at $99 and costs as low as $60 per camera, Blink’s multi-unit systems range from $149 for two cameras to $299 for five cameras. The ultra-affordable wireless home monitoring system requires no monthly fees and can be purchased on Amazon or Blink’s website, www.blinkforhome.com.
Using the free Blink Home Monitor app for iOS and Android devices, Blink allows users to instantly gain insight into their home or workplace from any location via live HD video and recorded video clips when motion is detected.
Blink’s multi-camera systems have equipped users with an affordable way to enhance security in their home, apartment, or office. The US Census reports that 72% of homes have five or more rooms and 62% of homes have two or more floors. Additionally, Top Ten Reviews states that there are 2.5 million burglaries annually, with 66% of those in residential homes. Having a system with two or more cameras offers increased peace of mind by delivering real-time visibility into the multiple entrances and areas of the home.
Suitable for homeowners, renters, and businesses, the Blink camera’s sleek design and compact size fits into any décor. Its unique industrial design allows the camera to stand on its own or be mounted with an included bracket. Equipped with features, such as an adjustable sensitivity motion sensor, low-light illuminator, built-in microphone, temperature sensor and free cloud storage, Blink provides a comprehensive, customizable and user-friendly solution for home security.
“We’re extremely proud of Blink, and the community’s response to it,” says Don Shulsinger, VP of Sales and Marketing for parent company Immedia Semiconductor. “After a successful crowdfunding campaign, we have 50,000 units in the market and 4.5 stars on Amazon. With 50% of our customers purchasing three and five-camera systems, and existing users adding more cameras to their systems daily, the data clearly shows just how widespread the need is to see throughout the home. Our mission is to make it easy and affordable for consumers to monitor every room in their home or office.”
In addition to multi-camera systems, Blink is adding additional features, which are set to launch in Q2 of 2016. Along with multi-system support (where a single account can access and manage multiple systems in one or more locations), the team is also working on a battery-operated alarm, scheduled arming and IFTTT support.
