"​I was looking for a wireless system, and that didn't require a separate subscription for cloud storage. Blink is the one that fit the bill​," explains a 5-star reviewer. "​I like being able to control the camera through my phone to adjust sensitivity or temporarily shut it off for when someone is working within the camera's view, and you don't keep getting alerts​ ... The free cloud storage definitely makes this worth the price of this system. Once you have purchased the camera, you are done forking out money. I also love how easy it is to save and share videos to Google Drive or via text. This is a very user-friendly system, and I have recommended it to others simply for the cost factor alone​."
