'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
The Blink indoor camera streams in 1080p quality, so you can see exactly what is going on in your home. Whenever you're out of the house, you'll get motion detection notifications, and you can even customize different notification zones if you have pets that are crate-trained, for example.
The cameras are easy to set up within minutes. All you have to do is plug them in, connect them to Wi-Fi, and use the app to make your preferred settings. You'll get the live stream going shortly after opening the box.
With the Blink cameras, you will get a free 30-day trial to the Blink Subscription plan, which allows you to record, save, and store footage. After the trial expires, you can expect to pay $3/month per camera or up to $10/month for unlimited cameras if you have a large home space.
