The distinct feature of the Blink Mini is that it’s a very compact camera you can use indoors. However, the quality doesn’t dwindle as it’s still at 1080P HD with a motion detector and two-way audio. 

Like other Blink devices, you get alerts on your smartphone when there’s motion detected. You can also use it with the Blink video doorbell because it has a chime whenever anyone presses your video doorbell. The Blink mini also comes with a power cord so you don’t need to use the batteries. It’s super easy to set up and it supports Alexa so you can use voice controls. 

Unfortunately like other Blink cameras, it doesn’t support the Apple Home Kit and Google Assistant. However, it’s a recommended version especially if you’re on a budget.

The major difference between the Blink Mini and the Blink indoor is that the latter doesn’t have any wires. And so, you don’t have to plug it into anything. It comes with AA batteries that can last for about two years. So you can set it up on any flat surface or mount it on a wall if you’d prefer. 

Asides from this, the Blink indoors comes with the same features as the Mini. This includes night vision, two-way audio, motion detection, and a 1080p camera resolution making it a durable security camera. 

However, since it’s designed solely indoors, you can use it to monitor your home when you’re away. It’s compatible with Amazon Echo so you can watch a live stream or choose to disable the camera. The Blink indoors also works with Alexa so you can use voice controls.

Quite similar to the Blink Indoors camera, the major difference is that this model is designed specifically for outdoor surveillance. And so, you can position it on your walls, ceilings, or even trees. 

However, one major feature it has is the IP65 rating which protects the camera in extreme weather conditions like rain, snow, and even dust. Set up custom temperature alerts to get notified once the temperature outside is either too hot or cold. The feature is really helpful when you have pets that love the outdoors.

Asides from these differences, the Blink outdoor has solid two-way audio, excellent vision, and a 1080p video resolution to ensure you get the best quality on your Blink app. You can choose to save your video surveillance either on local storage or on the cloud.

While this isn’t a camera per se, it’s another helpful device that can help you with your home security. With this, you can welcome your visitors and track movements around your door. Since the video is pretty clear, connect it to the Blink monitor app and see guests. You can even have conversations using two-way audio. We recommend using this with an outdoor camera to get more coverage. 

Connect to your doorbell to get sounds in the house whenever it’s triggered. Like other cameras, you can either save your footage online or offline using the sync module 2. 

Blink floodlight camera

Key Specifications

  • LED mount
  • 700 lumens LED light

The floodlight is an add-on we recommend when using the Blink outdoor camera. What happens is that when paired with a camera, you get HD smart security LED floodlight. It flashes up to 700 lumens and it’s entirely triggered by motion sensors. This is a great add-on if you’d like to take brighter surveillance footage in the middle of the night.

Blink Sync Module 2

Key Specifications

  • 256GB capacity
  • Local storage
  • Flexible Installation
  • Up to 10 camera support

Price: $23.99

The blink sync module is an additional accessory we highly recommend. Saving security footage for future reference is very important. However, if you want to save them to the cloud, you’d have to pay a significant sum for Blink’s cloud subscription plan. So instead, you can use this device to store footage on a flash drive.  Later on, you can view, share, and download these videos. 

Generally, Amazon blink cameras are powerful yet inexpensive options. So if you’d like to secure your home without going over $50-$100, then you should opt for a Blink camera. We also recommend adding an accessory to enhance the functionality of whatever camera you’re opting for.
