Recently bought 2 Blink XT for outdoor use. I have one facing the front door which works well and the other one facing the driveway.
I’m a bit disappointed at the one that is facing the driveway since it is so sensitive and it triggers the motion for cars passing by on the street. Putting it to the lowest sensitivity setting also didn’t work. I have resorted to angling the camera lower so the street isn’t captured but the field of view is really small now and almost renders the camera useless. I’ve also have had issues with plants and tree branches triggering the system when the wind picks up.
It would be nice if there could be a grid/zone option in the system so we can mark what areas would be active for monitoring, that way we can exclude areas, in my case the street. I believe Dropcam and some other outdoor cameras have this feature.
Another feature that would be nice to see is being able to have schedules for each camera rather than 1. I know we can turn off motion for each but that is not efficient going into the app all the time, especially if we know a set schedule that we would not want certain cameras to trigger.
I’m definitely going keep 1 camera but I’m not convinced on the other one since it is just too sensitive for what I want covered.
