Thank you BLINK for partnering with me on this post and making my home feel safer.
Gone are the days of being worry free without a care in the world. I remember it like it was yesterday. Six years ago I slowly waddled out of a hospital with my most prized possession. Every single bystander waiting for the bus or walking by was instantly perceived as a threat to the safety of that angelic pile of goo in my arms. I gasped at the first thought like this that crossed my mind. Who is this person that has taken over my body? Motherhood has a funny way of changing us and you would think after a couple years I would lessen up, right? Nope, it is still running rampant and worse than it was before as I am seeing a little glimpse of independence in our future. This coupled with the fact that my husband travels for work, I started looking into ways to better protect my kids and house (not to mention my packages on the porch).
I needed something super easy to install since it would be me doing the installation and no contract or wires would be amazing. I needed my security like I like my dinner. Grab and go! So I was sold on Blink the minute it came recommended.
Outdoor Wireless Security with Blink:
What is Blink?
It is smart home outdoor wireless security made simple. There are no wires connected to this HD security camera, providing unprecedented peace of mind.While I am away (or even just upstairs in my office), I know what is going on outside my door by checking my HD quality motion videos alerted on my phone.
Reasons to Consider Exterior Video Security
- “But I live in a safe town.” This is something I repeated to myself too many times before I decided to add outdoor wireless security to my house. With my daughter starting kindergarten, I needed to up how many sets of eyes I have. What happens if I hit traffic and her bus beats me home? With BLINK, I know that she is in the house and safe (while I am racing to get to her).
- We travel frequently and outfitted the inside of our house on move-in day with security. I remember the several hour appointments with the installation company, the unsightly panels I have on my walls now, and not to mention the 3-year contract I had to sign with monthly payments. But my house is protected and that’s what matters. Now that BLINK is at all my doors I know what’s happening before it has a chance to happen. This is so nice and gives us peace of mind as we travel for work and play.
- Packages end up often at my doorstep. In fact, my neighbors most likely judge the number of packages at my door. Full disclosure both my husband and I work out of our home, not to mention online shopping is way to easy not to take advantage. That coupled with the fact that we travel often, now that BLINK is on duty I can call my favorite next door neighbor and tell her to grab my packages as soon as they hit the stoop. No more “lost” midnight Amazon shopping sprees.
- High school kids will be high school kids, right? And we have a lot in our neighborhood. Knowing my property is protected will make me feel so much better when toilet paper ends up in our trees and I can call their moms to send them over to come over to clean up after themselves.
It is super simple to set up. I actually did it by myself (pats back) in a couple of minutes. All I needed was Wifi and a screw to get started. One of the best parts for me was that it was super affordable upfront and NO CONTRACT and NO MONTHLY FEES. More money for online shopping! It is also wire free and the batteries last for two years so once set up the maintenance is literally nothing for years! The cameras are also Amazon Alexa Show compatible. Keeping an eye on my home has never been easier with the help of BLINK For Home.
