The problem with most wireless systems is either that they are a hassle to set up, or there’s that lovely monthly fee to deal with again.

“For years I’ve been looking for an affordable home monitoring system.

I was tired of paying an alarm company an ever increasing monthly fee for a bare bones wired system.

I use it watch my driveway so I can keep track of who visits my house.

I originally was going to buy an exterior camera and mount it on the eve of my roof.

Meet Blink, the one-of-a-kind, battery-powered video home security and monitoring system that’s simple to set up and equally perfect for renters or homeowners.

Its stylish, wireless design houses innovative HD video technology, plus motion and temperature sensors, to deliver instant home insight through the Blink app for your i OS or Android device.

That plan however would require that I either string a POE cable or a 110 Volts to the destination, not really worth the huge effort.

The other option was to mount a Foscam inside the window, but my wife didn’t like it because it was too big.” — Jamie Rogers So far FANTASTIC. I’ve only had mine for a couple of days, and honestly haven’t had time to set up all 8 cameras yet, but that is not because it is difficult or time consuming – just trying to decide where to put them all.

We have one set up and it took less than 10 minutes, including opening the box and intallation.
