Neighborhood package thief will be CAUGHT and PROSECUTED with this crazy clear video!
The media could not be loaded. We've got some bad actors in the hood, so it was time to catch them with some irrefutable evidence. Our XT2 is a little old and our Arlos are acting stupid. Saw this come out and had to give it a shot. It was time to upgrade. Plus, the specs of the possibility of TWO YEAR BATTERY LIFE is mindblowing. It's probably a lot less, but my Arlos would last a week with $10 CR123 batteries, so that had to go. Anything had to be better than those dinosaurs. Set up was fairly easy. There is no real printed instruction manual, but those are rare today. Scanned the QR code and my smartphone popped me to their website with tons of tips, info, and even setup videos. The entire setup process is QR from the new Sync Module 2 to the camera itself. So don't make the mistake of slapping the batteries in and closing the camera unit like I did before I scanned the QR code. Whoops. Took less than 15 minutes to setup and sync. Signed up for a new Blink account so the old one won't get confused - plus there's several weeks of free cloud storage right now. Boom. Set it up in a tree ACROSS from my house this time. When I put it over my door, my old cameras would flag every car or pedestrian close and far. All I want to see is the jerk stealing my UPS packages, so I flipped the perspective. The HD is super clean and clear, and the camera is at least 30 feet from the sync module with no problems connecting. Big plus there. And, there's a pretty powerful little speaker in this unit! I was really surprised at the volume this thing can push for such a small speaker. Now, when this alerts me to funny business, maybe I'll be able to yell at the perps. Probably not, because they'll be long gone by the time I see the notification. Still, this feature could be useful in warning your kids from doing something silly when you're not home. The live view was disappointing, since you have to keep clicking the app to continue the live view for longer than 10-ish seconds. So you can't use this as a spying device or a baby monitor. Bummer. Also, the default recording time was like 5 seconds, probably to maximize battery life. You can't catch much in 5 seconds. I adjusted mine in the settings to about 20 seconds. I'll sacrifice battery life to catch a bad actor. Plus, there's a battery pack you can attach to this unit to increase battery life. I'll update in the future to let you know how the battery goes. Overall, I'm impressed with the new Blink outdoor. It's gonna rain here in Florida soon, so I'll let you know how that goes as well as night shots when available.

Update on Camera Issues
It's super easy. Works great. Setup was simple. It works exactly as advertised. What I didn't know for sure is that the batteries are just high quality AA batteries. So when they die, you can get some rechargeable ones and just rotate them through the thing. I'm going to order a couple more. They are pretty great. *Edit-A nice person took the time to let me know it's best not to replace w/ traditional AA batteries.

Neighborhood package thief will be CAUGHT and PROSECUTED with this crazy clear video!
This new camera is better then the Blink xt2 ! It has been totally re-engineered. Take it from someone who owns all the different cameras Blink had to offer since day one and had to get on a waiting list to get the very first one. So, I should know what iam talking about. This new camera no longer has the push down and pull system to open the back to install batteries. It has a large screw that you simply unscrew with a included tool to open the back of the camera which is really nice. Once you open the back and install the included batteries scan the small QR code inside the camera threw the blink app it will scan to find the camera once that is done it will automatically do a firmware update. After that you are ready to install your new blink camera. Also noticed the sound is much louder and more clear then the other cameras. This is good if two people are talking in a low voice you can hear what they are saying. Has brighter clearer night vision. Nice clear voice communication with two way talk. Alot stronger wifi signal to sink module and from sink module to camera. Sharp, clear, bright, and colorful HD vision during the day. I noticed before I wrote this review that some people only gave this camera 2 or 3 stars. Like the guy who is complaining about software issues. Well if you follow the directions you would not have that problem. Let the camera finish its firmware update. Duh ! Also, if you have been a Blink customer for a while and want to add this camera to your current system. You do not have to pay for cloud storage you are grandfathered in. After you add this camera to your existing system it will actually tell you this ! The front of the camera has a all new face with a very smooth and shinny surface iam sure to help combat the weather and give it a more high tec look. Their is no longer a switch inside the camera to turn on or off the blue recording light located on the front of the camera. It's is all done threw the app which is really nice as well. They really did a good job in re-engineering this camera and listened to customer complaints about their past cameras and went threw and fixed every issue. I would definitely buy this camera again ! UPDATE : 09-25-20 After using this camera for a couple of days. And as other reviewers have noted that this camera only has a 25 foot motion trigger ! Anything further than 25 feet it will NOT record when motion is present. So if you need a camera get the Blink XT2 for the further range. This camera will only be good for specific areas like door or window that are within the 20 to 25 foot range from the camera.

I actually purchased the product. 1st time user of Blink.
So far everything is as advertised. Setup was a breeze and the image quality is great - especially when set to “best.” I really appreciate the custom activity zones that you can set, as well as the ability the turn off the led light. In terms of improvement, the included mount is pretty basic. For better or worse the mount snaps into the back of the camera module. This makes installing it relatively easy, but also means anyone could detach it with a firm pull. I’ve noticed that there are upgraded mounts that you buy, but haven’t had a chance to fully check those out yet. Lastly, I noticed another reviewer mentioned subscription pricing, but it’s a bit misleading. Yes, there is cloud storage that you can pay for, but there are multiple levels, including a free plan, as well as a basic plan for $3/month. Also, the paid plans don’t start until 2021. More importantly, What this camera has, that the XT2 doesn’t, is local storage. If you’re big on privacy, and don't want to store videos on the cloud, you can attach a USB drive to the blink module and save your videos there (see photo which shows the usb drive). There’s no fee for saving your videos locally - you can still get alerts and watch your video feed live for free.

New and Improved Camera !
What an awesome product...total install took 25 minutes. I put 3 camera’s up outside to monitor my summer home. One of the camera’s I places on a pole in the yard pointing at the roof so I can monitor snow fall and snow melt roof system. The app was friendly. I shared the app with my wife and she was up and running in 2 minutes with minimal effort. We are so happy with this wireless system.

So Far, So Good
When we first purchased cams back in 2017, we compared to Arlo and Ring before we chose Blink. Now we are up to 10 cams, covering every angle of the house. Here are my findings after using them for almost 4 years (and still buying more): PROS: > #1 video quality is excellent. Day time is a bit better than night, but night vision is as good as it gets with cams. POSITION of your cam matters a ton. I started out putting them way high up and quickly realized - if you actually want identifying features - they need to be lower. Otherwise... yeah you see someone walking past, but you cant ID anything, so what is the use. > So inexpensive - so easy to integrate. Anytime we have ANYTHING we need to cover, we just order another cam and it literally takes 5 minutes to get it out of the box, batteries in, and added to existing system.. seriously - 5 minutes. > The app is great. Very intuitive. Our first cams had very few "advanced features" every time i order new cams, they have improved their features. Now you are able to zoom all the way in to very small areas, to capture certain areas and exclude others.. For example - old cams you had to block off large sections of the capture area to avoid the cams picking up movement from trees, but now you can pinpoint one little part of a branch on a tree to exclude if its triggering the cam. > Motion detection is very sensitive - but they have it tweaked just about right. It never misses anything, but if you setup your exclusion zones well - you can get it almost perfect. I dont have a lot of false alarms and I'm running 10 cams. We have one setup to look at the sidewak, and after much tweaking, we can actually exclude the street... but pick up both sidewalks on both sides of the street. You can setup the app to alert you or not alert you.. you can turn sound on or off on alerts. On windy days I do end up just going into the app and turning off all cams that are setup around lots of trees until the storm is over.. but thats like a few times a year. > Super easy playback and control of cams. It's instant - you can control them in any way, very easily. If I am working on a project in the yard, I dont want my cams on for hours, running out of batteries - so I just go into the app and turn them all off. It takes seconds. Likewise - if i hear a noise at night, super easy to open the app and live view any cam so i can look all around the house and see everything happening outside, from every angle. > Extremely easy to move around. We have had them for years - so we move them around occasionally. I even had mice in our crawlspace under the house at one point and just grabbed one of the cams off the side of the house and stuck it down there so I could catch them at night. Theres no commitment with these - no hard wiring so you can mount them anywhere and taking them on and off the mount takes 2 seconds. > No subscription needed to store clips. thats BIG for us. We would not like blink as much if they changed that. We run a lot of cams and it just stays 100% full storage - we can still access a few weeks worth of video, it just deletes oldest. You can download/save any videos. > Lots of mounting options. You have to buy them separately if you want anything special, but I have 3 different types of mounts - one for trees, one around porches that need to be secured so they cant be taken, and then the standard mounts for cams not at risk of being taken. There are camo skins as well - I have on in a tree that you pretty much cant see unless you know its there. > Customer support is super decent. In the winter of 2018, one of my cams took on a green hue to the image when the temp went down to about 10 degrees outside. I emailed customer service explaining the issue and sent a screenshot and within 24 hours they asked me for the SN of the cam, and did a firmware update that fixed it. I was quite happy with that. CONS: > So while the batteries are awesome because the cams are so easy to move around and deal with... i blow through batteries. Fortunately, i just get 20 packs of AA's, but with 10 cams - even though Blink ~says~ batteries can last a year? it totally depends on usage. So we get LOTS of traffic on our front cams because we live in a busy area and have people walking past all day. I change out the batteries on every one of those front cams once a month. Granted - thats many hundreds of video captures and ideally, we should connect those cams to electricity somehow - that is an option with blink, but I dont mind changing batteries. On the cams in the back yard and side paths - I really can go once or twice a year changing those, except for the ones that catch a lot of foot traffic. So the battery usage is totally dependent on traffic. Personally - the cams are a big deal to me, so i dont mind it at all. Benefits totally outweigh the downsides. > The biggest difference between Blink and some other companies is that i see other people with hardwired cams that can catch EVERYTHING in a continuous fashion, for hours. like the surveillance videos you see online where the cam just happened to catch something happening down the street...Blink doesnt work that way. it only captures immediate video clips, triggered by motion activation. It does store all videos.. you can see something weird in your yard and look back through videos to find out what happened - but it isnt 24 hours of continuous video feed. > You can get gaps in your videos. So it can capture 1 minute of video at a time, but then it takes a small break before it starts capturing again, so if something is happening and its videotaping an event - it will record an entire minute of excellent footage - but then it takes a 5 second break before it starts recording again. that doesnt sound like a long time, and for security it's not normally an issue.. the average bad guy is in and out quickly.. but it is annoying that it takes 5 seconds to re-trigger. So.... 2 minutes of continuous video... but in the middle of that 2 minutes.. a 5 second break. OVERALL - Super high video quality... cams you can move around super easily... a very easy app... I love blink and the upsides far outweigh any downsides. I always recommend it to people when they ask. You can cover your entire house at a super affordable price, you dont need to be rich at all.. Our 3 year old cams are still as good as our brand new ones. The peace of mind the cams bring me is priceless. I know every single thing happening everywhere, all the time outside. The affordability made it possible so that nothing can ever surprise us.

What an awesome wireless system...buying more!
This system will only work if you have the sync module (the brain) to connect the cameras to. The title of this bundle as well as the description states that it comes with one but it didn't! I had to pay and EXTRA $35 on top of it all just so they would work! Also had to wait an additional week for it to ship to me! Very mad that I spend all this money and can not use them because the most important piece isn't included AS STATED!

DOES NOT COME WITH THE SYNC MODULE!
The media could not be loaded. So, this is my first go-around with any kind of outdoor video system, so my opinion might change, but here's my thoughts today, after having this system set up for a weekend. 1) this system is extremely simple to set up. 2) It is battery operated and runs on WiFi, so you do have to have enough range to cover where your cameras will reside. I almost bought Nest (which is about 4 times the cost and the no go for me was drilling a hole through my wall to run the wire into my house. 3) That said, since these cameras are set up on an outside bracket, and the camera itself pushes on to the bracket they don't seem like the most secure camera. I live in the city. Anything that is not locked down could easily be stolen...especially if they are "just above six foot level." I found a second party bracket that should make these camera attachments be more secure. Will report if they work. 4) For people losing their minds about cloud storage not being free starting in 2021 that is false. The system comes with a sync 2 module which will allow you to store your data in your home with a USB attached storage drive. I'm going to start with a 1 tb drive and see how much data is taken up with my 3 outdoor cameras and my one indoor camera. Update: the 1 Tb drive isn't compatible with the system and it will only format a 64 gig drive or smaller. It's ok. I needed a new thing drive. Will try another with smaller storage. It must be MS-DOS (FAT), ExFAT, or FAT32 supported. 5) These do have the talk feature, so if you get an alert you can always talk to the person outside "place the package between my front and screen doors" for example. 6) I'm still learning all the settings, but, I think you can keep the system armed and turn off one camera (say in the house) when you are home. Finally, for the upfront cost and even with the purchase of additional brackets and drives, this is still a considerably more economical version than some outside security systems. I don't necessary need all the bells and whistles just a simple security system.

Security Cameras Without a Monthly Fee
After my old wired system was blown up, while plugged into modem, I searched and researched for two years, for a worthy wireless system. Then a thief, stole from my property. Good thing there were witnesses. The officer told me about blink and a bought the package deal. After reading about the usb storage verses the 100 dollars per year, I immediately decided to pay the 100 dollars. You can’t find cheaper surveillance anywhere, and you don’t have to wait till you get home, to put the thumb drive into your computer to see footage. I can see my entire, two acres and beyond. You get alerts on your phone. You can see and hear everything, as well as speak to your pets or humans. I also bought the echo show 8 for the same price that other stores are selling the small echo show. You can just ask Alex to show you any camera, and it pops up on your screen. You can watch movies and more, on it. With the 100 dollars a year, you also get extended warranty. I hope that means, if my modem blows up again and destroys my sync module, the warranty will cover a new one. If not, a new one is still cheaper than having to buy a whole new system. Setup and installation was easy. As a widowed, 61 year old, who lives alone, I am very happy with everything so far. I’ve had them for two months. The cameras are for protecting my property, and catching any future thieves. I wasn’t afraid without them, I don’t play. I can protect me. I am Wonder Woman. I also love the fact that I can see and hear wildlife. It’s so beautiful to see and hear the birds singing, and bees buzzing, and my cat has learned to come to the doorbell camera when he’s ready to come inside. Loving everything, so far. ??

Neighborhood package thief will be CAUGHT and PROSECUTED with this crazy clear video!
*7 month update Still on the original batteries with fairly high traffic, but I've pretty much got the rest of the house and yard covered with wyze cams. The one advantage that blink has over wyze is that it can be used for alexa routines which turn things off if no motion is detected for a certain amount of time. If they ever add continuous recording when wired, or key support, they could fill a bigger niche, but the wyze v3 is currently better in every way, unless you can't run wires. The biggest reason i still havent sold these is that all cameras occasionally disconnect from WiFi and stop sending notifications, and having 2 different systems helps mitigate this risk. *Update I'm going ahead with 4 star at this point. After moving the cameras down off the soffits to around 10' high on the walls, they do meet the 25' range specified in the FAQs page. This ad the customer support received earns a slightly grudging 4 star. Just be aware of the limitations. I've added a couple screenshots with red lines added to illustrate where they pick me up in a meandering walk to the entrances. *Update bumped to 3-star, as it's more a description ommission than a product issue* I was contacted by customer support after writing my original review and doing a bit of research myself. Apparently the motion detection only has about a 25 ft range, so if you're like me and want to overlook a large area, these are not for you unless you get several cameras and mount them low. I wish this had been mentioned in the product details. It should be noted that the reason the motion detection range is so short compared with wyze, is that it uses an infrared sensor for primary motion detection. This is probably more reliable for outdoor and low light, but again, would have been nice to see on the product details. So, I'll be moving the cameras down from our 18' soffits and adding more cameras in the future. If they work significantly better lower, I'll bump the rating accordingly. Hopefully at some point in the near future blink adds continuous recording with event clips for those of us willing to hardwire power, and with local storage provided by the new sync mod 2. This would make the motion detection range much less of an issue. *Original 2-star review* Motion detection leaves a lot to be desired vs wyze. I've had this up for 2 days and get plenty of alerts for shadows and bugs, but when my wife pulls into the driveway, opens the gate, and walks 30 feet to the door before it picks up motion?? Also, it picks up my dogs every time they use the dog door, despite the zone being set to inactive. Back camera allowed me to walk around the backyard, then up 10 steps directly in front of the camera before picking motion up as I opened the screen door. The attached photo is at max resolution and was the start of the motion clip. At least with wyze I get constant recording to local storage, so I can review the preceding events when I get an alert like this. Maybe the motion detection works better if closer up and not covering a large area, but this is awful.

We love it! Set up is easy. You just need a really good wifi connection then play around with the sensitivity level until it works for what you need.

Motion detection range is short (25ft), but works well inside that.
I gave these new Blink Outdoor cams a few days to test them out, and the verdict is in. These are so much better than the XT2s. I love my XT2s but it always drove me batty that I had to download the clips through the app, one by one. But with the new local storage feature, I simply grab the USB flash drive once a day and download the clips to my laptop. This is what I’ve been waiting for. Right now, it uploads to the USB flash drive once a day but at the end of the year it will be uploaded in real time. It will also have the capability to be uploaded to the USB flash drive manually if I choose. Love that. I’m so happy that I have local storage that I can quickly upload to my laptop.

Everything works great!
Easy to setup. I think the hardest part was figuring out where to put the cameras. Everything works well and very clear. Love the two way speaker system. Comes with batteries and you can use them indoors or outdoors. I have three indoors and three outdoors. You can have up-to ten cameras on a sync module. You can plug in a usb to store your feeds or pay for the cloud I chose to store locally via usb to each his or her own. They all come with their screws and you can either use the mount or not. My indoor ones are on top of certain things so no mount required. My outdoor ones of course needs mounting. It hasnt gotten to cool here maybe around 30 degrees and they work fine. Ive heard they can go below zero with ice and snow so should be fine.

Good for price. Not a good doorbell cam. Not fully functional with Echo.
.. SO I HAVE FIRST GENERATION XT, XT2, AND NOW 1 OF THESE.. I HAVE 10 ALTOGETHER.. THIS APPEARS TO BE VERY MUCH LIKE MY X2 BUT A BETTER DESIGN..PIC QUALITY IS SLIGHTLY BETTER, AND SOME EXTRA SETTINGS.. NOW IM NOT TECH SAVVY, BUT I HAVE GOOD LUCK WITH MINE, AND AT 10, THAT CANT BE DUMB LUCK.. IT DOES TAKE GOOD WIFI, PROPER PLACEMENT, AND FOR BEST PERFORMANCE I USE WASSERSTEIN CORDS.. NO BATTERY BEATS THE CORD..PERIOD.. SOME THAT ARE FAR ARE ON THAT PLUS EXTENSION W A LOT OF ELECTRICAL TAPE.. WE REBOOT OUR WIFI ONCE A WEEK FOR ALL DEVICES SAKE..EVERYTHING IS HAPPIER..PHONES TABLETS CAMS THAT WAY.. NOW FOR NEW CUSTOMERS.. YOU CAN CHOOSE TO GET A THUMB DRIVE TO STORE YOUR CLIPS SO ITS FREE, OR FOR A SMALL FEE, ( LIKE RING ETC..) CAN GET CLOUD.. FOR PREVIOUS CUSTOMERS LIKE ME , EVEN WITH THE NEW CAM, STORAGE IS FREE... I SENT MANY EMAILS ( AND GOT A QUICK AND DETAILED RESPONSE).. NOW, ITS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT WE HAVE FREE CLOUD, BUT!!! ITS TIED TO THE PREVIOUS MODULES... SO YOU CAN ADD A NEW CAM TO THEM ( AND ADD OLD CAMS TO THE NEW ONES BTW).. BUT!!! THE NEW MODULE ADDED WINT HAVE THE FREE... .. SO WHAT WE DID, WAS TOOK OUT THE SPARE TO BE SURE IT WORKED ( THEN DECIDED ITS NICE TO HAVE DOUBLE STORAGE, SO CAMS ARE SPLIT TWEEN THE 2)... AND I BOUGHT ANOTHER AS A BACKUP.. SO THE NUTSHELL IS, SO FAR, THOUGH NOT HUGELY DIFFERENT, I LIKE THE NEW CAMS... AND IF YOUR AN OLDER CUSTOMER.. GRAB ANOTHER MODULE FOR JUST IN CASE.. P.S. WE HAVE MODULE HALFWAY FROM ROUTER TO CAM, IN WINDOW AREA SO MINIMAL WALLS ETC.. AND AS FAR AS SOUND, ITS CRYSTAL CLEAR ON MY PHONE, TABLET NOT SO MUCH.. I also have found that other than good wifi and cables, having more than one makes a huge difference.. we have several now, but when we had 2 it was a big diff over 1.. we set them up one at porch, and one perpendicular view angle across driveway.. It gives you a more complete view, even for fast walkers, also having more means That its not likely all will be in retrigger at the same time ( brief gap 10sec or more if you sert it that way)... Weve spotted weird characters, package deliveries, found lost pets.... caught great nature clips..as well as indoor keep an eye on elderly pets.. Night vision is excellent too..will add a pic of that.. HOPE THIS HELPS ?? ??????????

Makes a click sound when senses motion.
Update from 3 stars to 4 and here's why: After my review went up, Haitham at Blink reached out to me. He gave me more tips on camera positioning and apologized again for the defective camera. I've received a replacement camera as of today and it appears to be working well. They provided a prepaid shipping label to ship back the defective one, a big plus considering some companies try to make you pay to ship back their defective goods. So why 4 and not 5 - to get the cameras working properly, I had to remount three out of the four functioning ones (despite following the rules of not mounting them directly in front of what I wanted to record) and get pretty creative about it, plus literally a couple of hours of calibration time to find the right settings for what I want. The trade off was not covering as much of my property as initially planned. I still don't believe the range is 20-25 feet. These aren't nearly as plug and play as they might seem, but all said, I'm no longer considering returning them. Recommendations: use outdoor mounting tape and calibrate your camera(s) before you start drilling holes in things. Don't try to do too much on the app at once - it needs time to communicate with the cloud. I've had very little issue with the app when I take this into consideration. Don't gripe about paying for cloud storage. Get local storage if you don't like it. That's the way the world's moving. Someone mentioned it didn't accept above a certain gb local storage - I plugged in a 256gb Samsung thumb drive and had no issues. Whether Blink will store that much to it is yet to be determined. Original: Bought a 5 camera system and got one defective one (not sensing motion) - An optimistic 5 stars to customer service who is replacing it after having me do normal trouble shooting items. Now, the reason for the 3 stars - ding about a half a star for having a defective product out of the box. I didn't pay almost $400 to have to deal with that. Ding a star and a half, because despite their "range" where you can gray out other areas, I've messed with them all throughout the day since installing them, and have repeatedly made it down my driveway to my car and back without triggering the camera and have the sensitivity up as high as it'll go. I think the motion detection range is much shorter than the view window. This is a big deal for me, as I expected them to capture anyone coming up to my vehicle. Overall, I wanted much more out of the motion detection. The image is fine when you're within a few feet of them, it's when you're further away that it gets granier (day or night). Not 100% positive if I'll keep them or not just yet.

?????????? BEEN USING BLINK 2 YEARS ????????
The media could not be loaded. I purchased this camera to add to the Blink system I purchased two weeks ago since I now find that the XT2 camera is no longer available. The only differences I can see between this camera and the XT2 camera in the two-week old system are: 1. It costs more. 2. The cloud storage requires a paid subscription starting next year. Installation is easy and only takes a few minutes. Motion detection very far removed from the camera requires a higher sensitivity setting which results in false alerts. The picture is very clear and night vision is good. The attached clip is just a live view from the camera. No motion was detected. 10/28/2020 A quick update. After submitting my original review I was contacted by Alex in Blink Customer Service. Alex sent me a Sync2 controller to enable the local storage option and has patiently worked with me while I made the change. Since the local storage is to a flash drive through a USB port I ordered a flash drive to use. I have not received it yet, but no reason to suspect that it won't work. The camera has good video and works well. It does have two drawbacks that I would prefer it didn't have. The first is the sensitivity setting is very touchy. Set it at a higher sensitivity to cover more distance and you get a lot of false alerts. I live in the country and have been really surprised at the number of visitors we have to our porch and deck in the night. So far we have a feral cat that is a regular, several raccoons, a groundhog and a deer. I expect the turkeys next, but they'll come in daylight. The second is the delay between the time that motion is detected and when an alert is sent out. It is only 10 or 15 seconds, but it seems like a long time when it happens. Nothing you can do about that I guess. My last comment is that the Blink Customer Service Department is VERY responsive. I have been surprised and pleased at the service I have received from them. I should mention that they came to me first, without my asking.

Decent after a lot of tweaks
PROs * Easy to install * Clear picture * Easy to configure (set movement zones) * Sound * GREAT CUSTOMER SUPPORT * Schedule to turn on an off CONS * Can't schedule individual camera on/off times * When trial subscription runs out, the warning message implies you won't get video anymore (FALSE). NOTES * You DO NOT need the subscription service IF you install USB stick in the WiFi module. You will still get notifications and videos. That said, there are other benefits to subscription you may want. * When I believed the Blink warning message and complained, their customer service sent email with link that showed their web page comparison of with and without and offered some other help. They CARE about the CUSTOMER experience!!! Who knew that still existed?
