I just read some of the FAQ on that Kickstarter page. Thing seems like a pain in the ■■■ to charge.
The HomeBase also has one USB charging port with Anker Power IQ Technology. We recommend charging the cameras with HomeBase. Charging via HomeBase from 0 to 100% takes about 4 hours. In addition, any 5V or 9V USB charger connected to a micro USB cable can charge the camera.
So it’s recommended to take the camera down and plug it in to the home base, or run a USB cable to it. 4 hrs to charge.
Taking it down to re charge seems more inconvenient then getting on a ladder once and changing batteries vs taking it down, then inside, charging, then back up the ladder vs up the ladder with say blink and swapping batteries. Done.
USB charging again defeats the purouse of a wireless cam unless your outside running an extension cord to it. Most people are buying wireless because they don’t have an outlet to power a camera.
I’m not saying blinks the best out there I’m open to trying new cams but this seems inconvenient from the jump.
