I have 5 cams around the house with two indoor and just caved for three more and two more solar additions. Can't speak highly enough if you are on the edge of the forest as I and love nature. Too bad we cannot post vids here, these screen shot piks dont do those vids justice... especially the one of the turkey charging the deer bottom center.

Dang, you make me want to get them for the cottage. I already have kuna cams with paid subscription at our cottage, but their AI won't allow me to capture wildlife, which is really stupid.

I am only on a 2 acre plot. Just about all of this is visible from the back door and this photo below is right off my deck not 10ft. One of the cams I am getting will be some of the best captures yet as I have a small sandpit beside my house that we only recently caught a bird bathing in. We have since discovered that it is used by any number of birds, including the turkey, where they literally have sand baths to clean their feathers off and get the mites and bugs off them. I'de never seen this before!

Best part is one can adjust sensitivity, IR sensitivity, as well as the area of your view that you want to not trigger the cams. So if there is a branch that keeps setting the cam off when the wind hits, you can block out that part of the pik for activating the cam.

Mine is on USB stick (64gb) and doesn’t really get full. No cloud subscription required.

**Using Blink Sync2 module

If you're using Blink Outdoor for security or surveillance around the home it's painful to use. Loading up the live view takes forever, maybe 10-15 seconds. But most times loading live view will fail, stay stuck on the load screen or result in a message the camera is busy. 9/10 times I can't get the camera to cooperate when I get a notification there's movement. So I've resorted to just keeping the camera up for archival purposes in case I need footage of what's happened overnight. It's hot garbage if you need to see what's happening on the spot.

It goes faster if you turn off the preview, although 9/10 times it's a spider or cat that triggers so you can see right off what is going on before you load.

I've got them at a couple of properties, and for some reason proximity to the router makes no difference. The one farthest always clicks in fastest.

I also refuse to upload the app after the junk reviews, so I have to deal with the update screen, but still superfast!

I currently use Wyze,but am looking to expand. I'm thinking about switching systems.

Can you plug the outdoor ones in, instead of batteries?

Are these rechargable like arlo and the other brands?

Can it detect people without a subscription? I'd get the sync module as I'm anti subscription :)

is there any way to get a decent live view/dashboard of multiple cameras going on pc? im aware that you can get an android emulator and open the app that way. however, can I keep the cameras in live view indefinitely? will i only be able to see one of the cameras like that?

Respectfully, your experience and not everyone's as it takes me 3-5 seconds to get a live view and, as long as I close it properly top left on the screen, I can go to the next live view. If you don't exit the initial live view properly, the cam is still working and you get pretty much stuck. I did have live view fail on initial install and then realized it had to do with the Wi-fi connection and not the equipment itself. I added an exterior AP and I now get about 100 yards into dense woods from the antenna which is mounted about 12 ft up on my garage. Again, camera busy...for the most part, is not exiting the prior view correctly but will also happen if the camera is in the process of recording something. As for seeing what's happening on the spot, I do EXACTLY that on any of the 5 cams no less than 10-12 times a day; again...proper Wi-fi set up is everything. I think that most people believe their in-house wi-fi is adequate for something 30-40 yards from the house. It isn't.

And just for reference. I have Bell Home Hub 2000 for the house and outside. I have a hardline running to my far garage where I have another router acting as an AP and then on the far side of my garage (garage is 40ft wide) I have the ubiquite external antenna as an AP as well. It picks up 3 cameras that are in the woods, the furthest of which it says has a weak signal but there is still no probs. I use two Blink hubs and the other controls the in-house cam and three outside the house. I have a 2 acre lot and the wifi reaches the whole property and then some.

Oh and I have been recording since Day 1 which is about a year now and still am not paying for their recording access. I typically have 25-30 vids of wildlife and surrounding activity saved each day.

How are these to use as a baby monitor? I currently have a Wyze v2. Can you save clips to your phone without a subscription or the hub?

Looks like you need the Sync Module 2 in order to save clips locally on a USB flash drive.

Owners of this please correct me if I’m wrong.

Looking to get the two pack with the Sync Module so that I can do local storage
