Answer:
To the customer that says 2 yr battery life is absurd.... not really, depends on usage. This isn't a constant streaming/recording camera. I have the previious version Blink outdoor camera and the batteries have lasted 6 months already.

This isn't a constant streaming/recording camera. I have the previious version Blink outdoor camera and the batteries have lasted 6 months already. In the location I have it, where the NSA can get the best view, it takes 3-5 video clips per day. I think the NSA tries not to use live view to deplete battery life or it becomes too obvious. I also have a variety of trail cameras, to be isolated from the NSA, with AA Lithiums taking anywhere from 0 to 200 photos per day and battery life is more than 2 yrs and counting. Just kidding about the NSA quips above. see less To the customer that says 2 yr battery life is absurd.... not really, depends on usage. This isn't a constant streaming/recording camera.

I have 628 video streams stored on the Blink Cloud from my cameras. I set my cameras up with varying sensitivity settings and various recording length.

I set my cameras up with varying sensitivity settings and various recording length. My conclusion after 6 months of Blink usage is that the Cloud storage provided is plenty. I live in a semi rural area on 5 acres. My cameras film the mailman, UPS guy, deer, birds, and blowing merchandise. Every motion detection on all of my Blink cameras (so far I set up 5 of my 8) sends me a notification on my smart phone and I view it. There is no need to delete old video cloud clips since the oldes ones go away first. Do not worry about storage. Blink's free cloud storage is plenty. see less I have 628 video streams stored on the Blink Cloud from my cameras. I set my cameras up with varying sensitivity settings and various recording length.
