What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Lack of artificial intelligence: Artificial intelligence in the form of person detection and facial recognition could have helped improve the camera’s usefulness in notifying owners about activity in their homes. Instead, the Blink Indoor relies on motion detection.
  • Field of view is a bit narrow at 110 degrees: The Blink Indoor’s 110-degree viewing angle could have been improved. While it’s not bad, top security camera brands often offer cameras with 130-degree or higher field of view.
  • Low-rated iOS and Android apps: On the software side of things, Blink overall isn’t the strongest brand. Its Android app holds less than a three-star rating, while the iOS app has 3.4 stars.

Bottom Line

Sometimes wires just ruin the aesthetic of a living room, which is why we're so happy with the wireless Blink Indoor camera. Did we mention we didn't have to change its battery for a whopping two years?
