Ok guys, need your thoughts and opinions. Currently, I have an outdoor camera security system, which is an 8 camera Swann 1080p over BNC wiring with 2 TB DVR. The quality is decent, but I have had issues with some of the wiring on 1 or 2 of the cameras and I know eventually the wiring needs to be replaced(I would do POE at that point). I also have a Ring Doorbell which is one of the locations with the wiring issues so when I do lose signal in that area, my Ring would detect any movement anyway.
My wife now wants to place an indoor camera in the Playroom which is downstairs which also has an exterior door in it. I am debating whether I should go with Blink or Arlo as I do want wire free cameras for this room. Blink is attractive from a cost perspective, but they don’t make any outdoor rated cameras and seem less mature than the Arlo’s. Arlo, while more costly, does give me the ability to expand to use outdoor cameras one day and slowly replace my Swann’s should I need to in some areas. I live in a high ranch, so I can’t see completely going wire free as I am not getting up that high to change batteries every so often. I know Arlo has official ST integration and Blink has unofficial. Not sure what the differences are from a ST integration perspective.
What are everyone’s thoughts?
