So to expand on this a bit, from a features perspective, it would be VERY nice to know when the Blink cameras are being powered by USB vs battery. I’ve installed mine outside, with batteries installed as a backup in the event of power failure, but you never 100% know which source it’s using. Since these are mounted outside, I use GFCI outlets, which could trip periodically due to moisture, humidity, etc., even though I’ve mounted my USB charger inside a waterproof housing. Knowing that something happened would be great, vs having to periodically check to see if the indicator light is still OK on the outlet itself.
Just showing power being supplied via USB would be a start. If you want to go above and beyond, provide a way to alert based on power source transition (i.e. GFCI trips, or someone nefarious unplugs the camera). Taking it to the nth degree, when going from line power to battery, allow a way to immediately start recording, in the event that someone is tampering with power or the camera or power itself.
When recording from a camera that’s on USB power, it would be very useful to have a “record until no movement” option as well (i.e. if someone hangs out on the camera for 5 minutes doing whatever, keep recording, as it would not impact the battery life). Same would go with a setting in the app to enable “continuous viewing when on USB power”, so that it doesn’t repeatedly ask if you want to continue viewing.
Thanks for entertaining the above suggestions. I really like my Blink setup, and would love it if the above happened.
