Welcome to my new column…
I have been given the chance to launch a new feature in Bounce, so I am excited to bring you the first of our product reviews.
On the build up to Christmas, over the next few months, we will be taking a look at items that may be useful either in the home during the festive period or on that all important gift list!
Our first review is on the Blink Two Camera System.
Security is a major thing for me. Sadly I once had the horrible experience of coming home to find my house had been broken into. Although the culprit was caught, sadly I never got my belongings back, nor did I ever get over the slight fear that someone may be in my house.
Luckily, with the improvements of technology, and products on the market such as ‘Blink’, this doesn’t have to be a fear so great anymore now that I can check in and see what’s going on in my home or office.
So what is Blink?
Blink is a wireless home security and video monitoring system, which is easy to set up, and by that, I mean it took me no less than 10 minutes to get it out of the pack and onto my phone screen.
Compared to other home monitoring systems its just a fraction of the cost and has no subscription fees or data storage charges.
How has this product been good for me?
I am out most days at work and have a pretty busy social life, so when I am out I now have the reassurance of switching on my Blink device and simply checking in. If there is any problem at home, I will know.
I can either view a live stream, or better yet, it also has a motion detector, which picks up on anything that triggers it off. In reality, what good does capturing hours of video that is the exact same static image? The only thing you really care about when installing a security camera is when it actually captures some movement, which is exactly what the Blink camera does.
