Im having an issue with someone in the house ( suspected teen ) disabling the cameras whenever she wants. I especially notice this on days she is home alone. I dont want to take any action with out proof ( its not my daughter its complicated ) she does not have any apps on her phone that can control a camera all of her apps were checked and she wouldnt have money to buy any type of jammer.
Ive had multiple emails back and forth with Blink and they keep sending me instructions how to operate the camera. im an electronics nerd and an engineer i know how to use the freakin camera ! They claim its not possible for someone else to have control of the camera…WELL… SOMEONE ELSE DOES CONTROL BOTH CAMERAS !!! I can only access live view but i cant watch that all day at work to record anything suspicious that might be going on. somehow motion detection is disabled. I tried arming and disarming, i turned scheduling on/off, turn motion on/off, removing it from wifi then connecting back. ive googled how this can be happening but I’m not finding any answers but I AM finding other people having the same issue. For instance yesterday the teen was home alone and from the time her mother left for work until i got home there was no motion picked up in my bedroom. On an average day I have 50+ videos of the cats running around. The cats hang out in the bed room when im not there they are constantly jumping on/off the bed or cleaning themselves or looking out the window its not possible that there was no motion what so ever ALL DAY. this is randomly happening with the front room camera as well.
im not stupid and im not going crazy. there is definitely a pattern when this happens. Its whenever the teenage girl don’t feel like being monitored. Blink was no help what so ever they should at least offer to send me new cameras and return my cameras. i don’t understand how an average teenager can hack the cameras like this but the Blink has no idea how this can be happening???
The cameras work great if you dont have anyone in the house that wants to avoid being on camera.
If you need a secure camera i would do more research and not buy Blink Mini.
