Folks, glad you’re back with a new product. It’s good to see that Blink is still alive.
Now please, start adding features. The system is a bit lacking when compared to the competition. Some ideas that could be done easily:
- geofencing. We need to be able to automatically deactivate/activate systems whenever we leave home or come back. It’s an important feature. Alexa integration is nice, but useless because we need to deactivate before entering home and activate after we left home. Geofencing can do it, and automatically.
- temperature graphs. You have a sensor… Use it! You’re an Amazon company, don’t tell us you can’t get some storage space on DynamoDB.
- timed pictures: the system automatically takes a new picture for each camera every day at fixed configurable times, e.g. every day at 9am. It does so automatically only when it’s armed. This way, when you open the app, you see a recent picture of your house. If a camera falls down, you see it. If a pipe broke and your house is flooded, you see it.
- app improvements. It’s unbelievable that the text overlays the other ui elements when using a language different than English. The app really needs some polishing (if not a redesign).
We love the system, if you want to stay on top, think about software features and not only hardware.
