I travel with my Blink cameras (and a large pack of AA batteries!) I need a few accessories that do not currently exist.
- We need an external motion detector that can trigger a nearby Blink camera remotely.
Blink cameras placed INSIDE of my vehicle and looking through the glass windows to the outside are not triggered by movement, but they CAN see someone plow into the side of my vehicle, or attempt to break in, or take something from my truck bed, or catch a license plate, etc. A battery operated EXTERNAL motion detector that triggers the camera(s) inside of a vehicle (or motel room window) can be placed on a fence or hung from a tree limb, or adhered to the vehicle’s glass windows or mirrors, or attached to a vehicle via a strong magnet, while the more expensive camera(s) remain locked safely INSIDE.
Alternately, a strong plastic housing to securely hold a Blink camera on the OUTSIDE of a vehicle when the housing is closed in the door or slipped over the top of a glass window so the camera is outside, but difficult to steal.
- We need a housing that can slide over the top of the hotel room door and SECURELY hold a Blink camera that looks straight down to the area in front of the door.
Alternately, it could slip over the side of the door over the lock and be made so it would not slip down on its own, or be able to be removed while the door is CLOSED. The camera would be angled to view the person standing directly in front of the door.
In a hotel, YOU might have just checked in today, but “Bubba” is outside of your door waiting to assault “Cooter” who was in that room LAST NIGHT with Bubba’s wife or daughter. Bubba doesn’t know Cooter, and he doesn’t know what Cooter looks like. Bubba did not bother to stop at the desk to ask if Cooter is still checked into YOUR ROOM. All Bubba knows is that he wants to kill the guy in Room 13 at the local motel! Bubba is NOT going to politely ask you for your I.D. He is just going to attack whoever opens the door of Room 13. Been there, done that!
- A 12vdc to 5vdc power source for cameras mounted inside or outside of vehicles. Either using a cigarette lighter plug or a USB plug or even hard wired into the car’s electrical system via an “always on” power source.
I will buy ALL THREE of these!
