The Blink Outdoor camera packs a lot of useful features into a small home security camera—including a good weather-resistant rating. It can also be used inside. If you want one camera that can do double-duty, this is a great option. Best of all, it only costs about $20 more to go with the Outdoor camera over the Blink Indoor camera.
It’s powered by batteries, so it doesn’t need it to live near an outlet. This grants you the flexibility to keep an eye on what’s going on inside the house or on the back deck.
We didn’t even bother mounting the Blink outdoor cam. It was just so darn useful to put it on the picnic table to watch for a car to pull into the driveway, then on the porch to watch for a package, and then inside to watch the pets.
Of course, if you want a dedicated outdoor camera, mounting it somewhere permanently is ideal so it doesn’t get knocked over. Installation is easy. It just takes two screws and a few minutes to attach this outdoor Blink camera to its forever home.
