Then in the interest of a balanced discussion, I will share my view. I have been using Blink since around September 18, and I am almost 100% satisfied. It does exactly what they said it will do, bar a few minor ‘nice to have’ features that remain missing, despite numerous requests from many.
I have four sync modules, and seven cameras, and have yet to have a missed recording, that I know about. If the newspaper boy comes, it gets him. If the postman comes, it gets him. Two visits a day, every day. Indeed, if I don’t get a recording of the mail being delivered, I know we have none, without ever needing to go and take a look. Any deliveries, it gets them. Anyone coming to the front door, it gets them. When I mow the front lawn, and forget to disarm, I drive past the front door camera about 15 times. When I’ve finished mowing I’m faced with 15 recordings to delete. Never ever misses anything that I am able to confirm.
If I go out the the garage, and forget to disarm, I get two recordings, every time. One from the camera overlooking the back lawn, and one overlooking the drive, as I walk around the house. If it’s armed, not sometimes, or mainly, always! If I don’t get one, and I then remember, when I take a look in the app, it is disarmed and I’d forgotten to rearm it after a previous trip out, when I already disarmed it.
This is not make believe, a Blink employee, or some bot, it is real world, first hand experience, just like yours. Is there things that could make it better, sure, a whole bunch, but failed recordings is not one of them, unless you have an issue.
My guess is that you have a networking issue, or a router/ISP compatibility issue of some type, which you could not get to the bottom of. If you choose not to give Blink the opportunity to get to the bottom of it for you, so be it, return them and have done with it.
I didn’t want a wired system for so many reasons, and I did not waste my money, it was exactly what I needed, and I almost could not be happier with my choice.
Anyone reading this, decide for yourselves. Do your research, and know what you are getting in advance, but know my point of view too, that it works very well.
