We had multiple testers give the Blink cameras a try to help us identify what we like and where they fall short. Here’s a peek at how we put Blink through its paces:
- We tested in various light conditions—natural, artificial, and under cover of darkness. We also used the cameras indoors and outside.
- We enlisted a 13-pound cat named Leary and her cohorts to see how sensitive the motion sensors are.
- We used the cameras’ IFTTT features to see how easy it was to set up routines and put the motion sensors on alert when we left the house.
- We added voice control with an Amazon Echo.
In addition to our in-home tests, we also conducted research and compared Blink to other wireless security cameras. Factors we considered include price, overall value, customer experience, smart home compatibility, features, and ease of setup and cameras use.
