The Blink security camera system is one that has published integrations on IFTTT and with Amazon Alexa. The integration with Amazon Alexa devices such as Echo or Dot allow you to simply “Ask Blink” to start your command… for example:
- “Alexa, Ask Blink to Arm My Home System”
- “Alexa, Ask Blink to Disarm My Vacation System, My Pin is…”
- “Alexa, Ask Blink What is My Status?”
Blink allows you to purchase a camera system that has between one and five cameras. The best value is by far the 5-camera setup, but be warned – these cameras are only for indoor use. Outdoor cameras are currently in the development road map, so don’t expect this to replace your outdoor cameras any time soon.
The Blink setup has apps for the two major mobile platforms, iOS and Android. These apps allow you to schedule when your cameras are “ON” and they alert you when your cameras find something they think you should view. These apps let you see what they see from directly inside the app!
