Thanks for the history and technology lessons. But it’s 2019, there’s not reason a consumer system like this, from amazon no less, can’t display multiple streams on one screen. If the technology of Alexa/google and Siri exists among everything else we have nowadays… I should be able to ask my 50$ firetv stick(yeah a small device that I can talk to and have it do things around my house) to view 3 live camera feeds, that cost 300$, at the same time. If Echo/fire devices can do all that it can, for under 200$ then a 300$ set of stick up cameras can certainly show more than one live feed at the same time. ■■■■, they could even knock it down to 360/480 resolutions to keep buffering down.
Don’t tell me the only reason a video system that has live feeds of multiple cameras is because it’s more expensive or “professional” that’s not true and you just gave a long winded alternative to saying “I don’t know why blink hasn’t done a grid view yet”
It’s amazon for ■■■■ sake, it’s their camera, they most certainly CAN do it. Just like you can set up an Alexa routine to that involves playing a song, on an echo device, but if you speak that same routine to a fire stick it can do all other parts of the routine but won’t play the music through your fire stick…but it will execute on a cube…
It was an oversight or they just chose not to add a multi view feature, it’s not that they can’t and keep a certain price point. And even if they wanted to they could just hype up a new feature and change another 40$ for a “faster sync module that will support multi camera streaming on your firetv devices!!!”
And what are you gonna say when they do add this “grid” view option to fire TVs or they just inevitably make a firetv app for blink???
