Blink Indoor: Indoor wire-free pick
The Blink Indoor requires a paid subscription (about $3 a month) to save videos, but it stores only about two hours of footage, which is tiny compared to most brands. Still, the Blink Indoor is a good option if you want an affordable wire-free indoor security camera to use with Alexa.
Blink’s little (and we mean little) home security cameras offer straightforward video surveillance at a price nearly anyone can afford.
We weren’t particularly blown away by these home security cameras, but we don’t have any major complaints about them either. They offer industry-standard features such as 1080p video quality, two-way talk, and night vision. Plus, the app is very user-friendly.
Best of all, these tiny Blink cameras can be placed just about anywhere. If you’re looking for less obvious home security, the Outdoor, Indoor, and Mini cameras are a good choice.
Blink camera similarities and differences
All of the Blink cameras come with some pretty standard features:
- 1080p image resolution
- 110° field of view
- Night vision
- Two-way audio
- Built-in Amazon Alexa integration
All of the Blink cameras are super tiny and fit in the palm of your hand. They are very discreet if you want to, say, hide the Outdoor camera to peek out from behind a plant to catch footage of the neighbor who’s been walking their dog in your yard.
These pocket-size wonders are super easy to install. You just follow the on-screen instructions, and within around 10 minutes, you’re connected to Wi-Fi and the app.
One thing we didn’t like is that the Blink app doesn’t walk you through the steps of physically installing the camera. The little booklet that comes with the cameras doesn’t explain it either.
