I got Blink to placate close family members, one of whom specifically asked for Blink.
I guess they want to check up on The Old People to make sure any dead bodies don’t have time to decompose and reduce the resale value of the house…-)
With a snapshot every 10 minutes, somebody can open the Blink app and just quickly scroll thru the snapshots.
Nobody laying on the floor, then life is good.
Alternatively, they can arm the system, take a break for awhile, and then come back to see what comes up in the way of clips.
Obviously nowhere near as good as IP cams and a server like Blue Iris.
OTOH, I did not want to be pulling Cat5e through the whole house, and if Blink makes them happy, so be it.
Before purchse somebody told me that the automated snapshot thing was already there as a function or something like Smart Home - or I would have reneged on Blink.
But it was not.
Somebody is developing a Win 10 desktop app that will schedule the snaps - and I have been using it… but it seems like overkill, so I figured maybe could write something bare-bones…
