It seems like all the shipments are separated between the Blink cameras and the Echo devices. I have two separate orders and both have two seperate shipments, but while one has one invoice for the 3 items (Blink, Dot and Show), the other has two invoices (1 for Blink and 1 for the Echo devices).

That's where I'm tempted to return the cameras just to see if I can keep the Echo devices.

They come (unless update) with adhesive tape too.

Question, I bought the 3 pack but only need 2 camera's. If someone else already has the system can they just use my 3rd camera and add it to their existing system?

Yes, you can add up to 10 cameras per hub. So you sell/give someone your 3rd camera. They can link it to their hub.

Best Buy allows return on individual items. However, unless part of a bundle (i.e. you DID NOT add the items separately on the website), or printed otherwise for a reasonable price on the invoice, if you return one of the items of the bundle, the other items will be charged at full price per this: https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/help/blta7 ... d08016dc32 . That is, you will receive less than what is printed for your camera-only refund.

I might just try.

Like I said, I have an invoice receipt just for the cameras showing $249.99 plus the taxes. I already received the Show and the Dot for this order, and the 3 pack of cameras was shipped from BC, so it will only arrive in a few days.

My cameras were shipped from BC as well. But did you check the travelling it did? Mine left from delta BC, went to Alberta then Manitoba and 3 days later it went back to Delta BC lol. Now it’s finally in Ontario. Not sure why fedex decided to ship like that.

Thanks again OPs!
I received part two of the BB shipment today and as I hoped, it contained the Amazon Echo Dot (gen 3)….. happy that BB fulfilled the Echo Dot and Show 5 in my Blink XT camera order.... thanks again OPs

Very weird. I ordered a 3 pack and a 2 pack a day later and both shipped via 4 separate packages, but all from Mississauga. Yesterday I received the 3 pack which came with the Echo Dot, and a separate package with just the Show. Now today I received a Show and Dot, but the 2 pack was delayed till tomorrow. Debating if I'm going to return the two pack, but it's such good value with everything that was included.

5 Days running. Battery alert on all 3 already requiring replacement. Not very impressive.

If they are outdoor in the cold, it is normal. Voltage fluctuations are normal with all batteries in the cold, have a Tesla? ;)

It should continue to work and the alert will disappear when it warms up.

How can I mount this on brick outdoors? Any recommendations for what screws to use? I looked at tapcon and they look too large to be used with the mounts provided.
