“Francie Black, technology consultant with ipadwisdom.com, said she has tested quite a few systems and the one she prefers is called Blink. It’s a camera synced with the free app that allows you to monitor what’s going on at your home.
The company promises a two-year battery life with the wireless portable camera that costs about $100. You get mobility and motion-sensing technology with Blink, and you can also receive notifications if the camera detects motion in your home.
Black said there is also a free option, and all you need is an extra smart phone and the free Presence app.
‘Basically, you install the app on two devices – an old smart phone and then on another phone,’ Black explained as she set up the home monitoring system. ‘Set it up as a camera. You want to plug it in, and you don’t want it to go into sleep mode.'”
