Second time this has happened to my indoor camera. The app told me to replace the batteries, which I did with the energiser lithium batteries, I use these batteries on my external camera and no issues.
I replaced the batteries on my internal camera and it didn’t change the low battery status. The camera worked for a couple of hours then died. It also started to get warm.
I contacted tech support via email and was told to delete the camera and reinstall it, add new batteries and it seemed ok. I went out and whilst out noticed the camera temperature was 102° so had to come home concerned the camera might melt or even worse cause a fire. The camera was very warm.
I rang technical support and have to say they were pretty much useless, I was told it was draining the battery because the camera had a poor signal to my WiFi and therefore using the batteries quicker! . The camera was fine for over a year and is literally 10feet from my WiFi router.
Like I mentioned earlier this is the second camera I have owned that has done this, surely there is some kind of design fault with these cameras. I wasn’t offered a replacement as the camera is 15months old and out of warranty. I spent £8 on new batteries and now look like I need to buy a new camera.
Don’t think I’ll be recommending Blink and looks like I’m going to have to look for an alternative product as the current system certainly doesn’t give me peace of mind if the cameras are a potential fire risk.
