FYI -

Record, view, and save events in your Blink app with a free 30-day trial of the Blink Subscription Plan. Then, subscribe for just $3 per month per camera, or $10 per month for unlimited cameras at a single location

Alternatively:

Save motion clips and photos from up to 10 Blink cameras connected to the Blink Sync Module 2 locally in your home and view them through the Blink app or the computer by plugging in a USB flash drive (sold separately) for no additional fee.
This information is incorrect. I have this and I can view on tvs by requesting alexa to show XYZ location on the property, and also arm and disarm by saying the correct commands. So your con might just be using incorrect commands. Cheers 🍻.
I'm pretty sure the guys source is: "trust me bro" lol

Oh man let me count the ways.... The record triggers are terrible. It would record trees in the zones I blocked out but not the cat walking right I'm front of it to S**T in my planter box. They record in set time durations and then have a re-teigger time out. They can stop recording when motion stops but it's super unreliable. I turned them all off because they were so unreliable. I just use them for love views which load crazy slow and moving between cameras is super slow, no multiview. Can't record live view to USB if you don't pay for cloud, have to screen record which is weird. I have more reasons.

I have older hardwired cameras that were in my house when I got it and they're not great quality but they load so much faster, are way easier to view, and continuously record so if something happens I can go back and see it happen. With the blink camera stuff would happen and it'd capture like one second of it or not at all...

My friend did wireless with constantly powered cameras pretty easily and the results were 10000x better than blink. I forgot what he got but I plan to do it at some point. I think Nest because he recorded to Google cloud.

Dude tell me about it. I never got zones to work. Full grown people wouldn't trigger it but a leaf blowing by would. I gave up.

Quote from lima413 :
Not sure if already answered, but here is my experience.

I purchased a 5 camera system when it went on sale. For me it was on the cheaper side to having surveillance system with local recording.

The cameras claim a 2yr battery life. So far I've had my cameras for 1.5 yrs and have not had to change the battery yet so I'd consider that claim to be accurate.

I initially thought that the sync module was just a way to save videos locally. However the entire system relies on this sync module so if something happens to it or your internet connection then the system is effectively useless. Not a great design IMO.

On the topic of network instability or power instability it doesn't do well with either (meaning recover after these are restored) which will cause the flash drive to be corrupted at which point it will no longer capture new videos.

Support is generally not great. When trying to identify why the system no longer captures videos, support generally advises to just format the flash drive and start over.

Being able to set recording zones is a nice feature but I have a couple of instances where something comes right into the field of view of the camera and yet the camera does not record. There is an option to turn up sensitivity but then there are a lot videos recording nothing relevant e.g. shadows changing.
Not sure what issue you have but I've never had a problem with "power instability" lol. The system comes back online by itself when power or wifi goes out and never any issues recording to sync module after. Likely user error or YMMV.

The zones are nice I cover up this road at the top of the FOV of one of my cams so passing cars wont constantly trigger it and it works well. In fact some cams I've researched seem superior in most ways yet dont have the motion zones, so it makes them a non starter for me.

That said the biggest issue with these is lack of person detection, which means you will get false alerts (in my case most often from wasps that fly right up to it) a lot. Nothing can really be done. But almost every system I've researched has gotchas.

I think these are decent starter cameras. Just know what you are getting. The fact they are battery not POE is blessing and a curse. The curse is they are not CCTV cameras. The blessing is you can mount them anywhere in wifi range with no wiring and incredible ease. I wouldn't consider them like "serious" cameras whatever that means. You can get them very cheap on sale. I like them for watching my property, but you will get tons of annoying notifications.

The other day a incident happened where a doordash lady dropped an order I didn't order at my door. Then my next door neighbor came over and took it (I assume he ordered it). Then for some reason he brought it back, then came and got it again. I was able to figure out what all happened from just from my cameras clips lol. So that was kind of cool. But theyre also annoying with the notifications. I often wonder if on balance I would miss them if they were gone.

Don't know if this will help but you can snooze your notifications for up to 4 hours at a time. You can do it for certain cameras individually or can snooze all. They continue to record you just won't get the notifications.

anyone try yet to "hack wire" 3V power source instead of the batteries. Wonder what the needed mA current. I like he Wifi, but don't want to change batteries... I can probably run a thin CAT3 or something (i have an old roll of CAT3) to power them ...maybe make a little hole for the cable to go in and silicone around it.

No hack needed. They can be powered with a micro usb cable.

Saw that connection on the back of the camera with a rubber plug in it, I was wondering what it was for.

Whatever system you go with, Eufy, Ring, Blink, Acme, etc. block your cams from having access to the internet from your router settings.
How does one connect remotely to monitor the cam, if the internet is blocked via the router?
