Nice find @ABearCalledYodel365 ; thanks for posting and welcome to hotukdeals (y)

drasim

Ah my apologies I read that incorrectly. I only switched because I started off signing up on the NL site in Jan which was instant activation, then switched to Paris so I could be billed in GBP. Their support could do with improvement. I reported some node CPU issues in Amsterdam and they just didn't understand the issue. Usually when you rent servers, the technical support are server specialists.

roots

nah, my issue is that activations for Paris are delayed as they're having trouble buying storage I think. asked support if I could be activated in Amsterdam instead but they said the only option was to cancel & sign up again at the back of the queue. pretty lame if you ask me and I'd already been waiting 6 weeks at that point.

drasim

I started on Amsterdam, moved to Paris. No real difference in latency if that's your issue.

roots

check their forums for more accurate activation dates. I was in a preorder queue for about 6 weeks as I selected the French datacenter and they have issues with their equipment there. asked to be moved to Amsterdam instead, they said no so I cancelled. only wanted it share some local mp games via parsec!

erol888

OK now tell me how much you estimate the cost of 2TB worth of redundant storage, a host to run on (ideally duplicated at separate locations), maintenance + electricity plus your time to both set up and maintain is worth.... I'd be surprised if you had any change left over for £57.73 per year. I agree for some people, they may already have some costs already covered but for the majority it stacks up, at least in my eyes...

Rugrats

I tell you what, recently I want it to backup 30gb of data (which is a tiny fraction) on another premises, and I was annoyed by all the services that exists out there. And I want it a FOSS solution, I came across syncthing which is much easier to use than Nextcloud Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but for me without spending a penny ( apart from leaving a small PC running for synchronization), it is a much better alternative than Dropbox, especially if I have to pay ££/m.

dahokolomoki

Great saving if you were planning to subscribe anyways!

erol888

Do you know of a free (or cheaper) way of getting 2 TB of off-site data, a decent sync client (I'm scowling at you, OneDrive) and feature's such as on demand file download (aka unsync or local file headers only) with no real hassle of maintenance or upkeep costs? For some people the convenience makes it worth while...

Which one goes with Alexa and which with google or Apple device with customers and partners

square72

I use mine with the echo show and it’s great, I sat show front camera, back camera or indoor camera and it’s shows instantly. The schedule is useless for me as I need to schedule each camera and blink doesn’t support that which is the only downfall for me.

kevlhughes

Can 1 of these transmit straight to a phone or tablet ? I'm wanting a camera pointing out from the front of my sailing boat that will show on my device where I steer from, as sometimes the sails get in the way of looking forward. If this won't then what would someone recommend? I have 12v supply on board, but obviously no internet. I'd rather not set up a hotspot if possible.

causerino

The PIR range is only 20 foot, around that and over and it won't trigger the camera to record. Edit: realised you are talking about WiFi distance (lol)

sirichants

Christmas sales, we brought echo show and hoping that it can work seamlessly with Blink XT2. We were hoping to see notification and eventually who at the front door on echo show. Despite strong wifi, Blink XT2 are too slow to be useful. It is possible to view camera picture via echo show but latency are just too much. The latest update of Blink app let you do the schedule arm/disarm camera which we find very useful. Blink also linked with IFTTT so it is very flexible. [before we have Echo Show, we set up 'Good night' routine with Google Assistance which work very well] Overall it is a good product but dont hope too much with Echo Show.

hcc27

Thanks, I checked again and the app is fully updated. Under Settings> System Settings - Home > Scheduling, there's only one global schedule available in the app. There's no mention of this in the App change log on the website, and people on Blink forums are still asking for this update. The only way to do this apparently is to have two sync modules, one for each camera as in these instructions! You can of course manually arm or disarm cameras individually. If you have an update that allows you to set scheduling for individual cameras off a single sync module, please do share the version of the App that permits this. Mine is 6.0.12 and there are no further updates available on the Play store.

roadie

Any particular ones that you recommend on android and iOS?

Afro.Thunder

No, you can view on Android/IOS apps too

Afro.Thunder

I'd check your updates, you can individually schedule cameras to arm and disarm now.

david49

So true and such a pain. I had to pick up work-doo bills on many occasions as my company Amex (or any Amex) was not accepted. Amex’s business model was based on businesses (and people who thought it was some kind of status to have an Amex) receiving a rebate on spend but Amex just passed this onto the retailers - hence why so many places don’t take it. The model might have changed now but there are still loads of places that say “No”

Uranus

Amex is still not accepted at many places, regardless of the hordes here rushing to defend them. Everyone I know that owns an Amex card also carries a second card be it a visa or mastercard.

david49

Quite an assumption you are making about my dining habits there! For the record it wasn’t the chip shop or the off license - it was the kebab shop on the corner and the burger van in the lay-by on the A43! As I say, not accepted many places! (lol) (lol) Seriously though, myself and the 400+ sales people we employed complained like crazy about the acceptance of our Amex cards. We had the green cards but it was a general statement of not accepting Amex. It wasn’t everywhere but really frustrating when it happened - you soon get into the patter of asking the restaurants when you make the reservations.

ALBDeals

Happy with mine also. I have had mine installed since 1st of feb. It is by the front door so plenty of notifications and still on the original battery.

mario999

Okay, had the system for over a week now. One camera and one sync station covering the front door. Set up for me was very easy. About fifteen minutes including downloading updates,etc. Be mindful how you point the cameras, if the person walks directly towards the camera, the notification will be a couple of second slower than if they walk across the field of view. I managed to place the sync unit only a couple of metres from the camera and I have solid internet of about 80 - 100 Mbs via a mesh system. I did many walk tests, at quite quick speed and the camera normally triggered at about the three to four metre mark. It then took about 5 or 6 seconds to get the actual notification. So as the doorbell chime rang, a few seconds later the notification came through. Then pressing the notification, it takes another 5 or 6 seconds for the video feed to show Surprisingly, it worked just as well over a 4g connection as it did over WiFi. Also to note is that I have not had any false activations, unlike my YI Cam. It is difficult to test properly as delivery guys don't hang around at the moment and just press the bell, drop the parcel and walk away. Would it work in place of a Ring doorbell? If the Postie hung around for a short time, I think it would. Please note, I also tested the camera by placing it a long way from the base unit and this did significantly effect the notifications. Also if you have your using a free router from your ISP and have slow Internet speeds, this will also effect your notification speed. The only thing I can not comment on is the battery life. To conclude, I will be keeping the unit as I am very happy with it. Any questions, please ask.

Yes, I believe they sell on amazon amongst other places for around £6. Not bad for over a years use

Walrus_Man

So you just replace with more lithium AA batteries?

hcc27

There's a microUSB port behind a flap on the rear, you can connect a standard 5V USB charger to it. However, once the flap is opened the camera will let in water, so you need to seal the opening with some hot glue (not an elegant solution) or better, buy a 3rd party external enclosure for the camera from Amazon or the bay.

hcc27

This is also exactly my beef with the system. The whole software ecosystem around Blink is designed to achieve one objective - save battery life. So when your camera receives more than a few activations a day, you receive a warning on the app that it will result in high battery drain. If you try to increase the duration of recording from an event say from 10s to 20s or 60s (max allowed), you get a similar warning. If you try to increase the sensitivity of the motion sensor, again the same warning. There's sometimes a significant delay between the start of an event and the recording being triggered (so you miss the first 5-10 sec of it) and also, the notification is triggered after the recording has been saved which is absolutely crazy. The most infuriating feature, as you say, is that you cannot set schedules for individual cameras! I have one camera monitoring the front door and another the garden, obviously we need the front door camera armed 24/7 but we then need to remember to de-arm the garden camera every day in the morning and re-arm it at night, otherwise the camera will run down the battery in no time as it will be activated every time the rear door is opened. We sometimes forget to arm the garden camera at night, which means it doesn't record anything in response to an event - if you don't arm Blink cameras, they turn into door stops. We have now set a daily reminder to arm the camera before turning in. Blink could easily have allowed continuous recording to a microSD card if the camera is powered by a USB cable, but the cameras don't even have an SD card slot. The cheapest Chinese cameras have this feature, and often I've had footage missing between contiguous 30sec clips even when 'continuous recording' has been enabled in response to an ongoing event. Security is a serious business, and with CCTV you have only once chance to get it right. If you really need the convenience of wireless cameras, Blink is an acceptable compromise but if not, always go for a wired system with full time recording.

The_Shepherd

I disagree, I get notifications during the event. Also, have this on my app-

Did the refurb come with Red Nas Drive as I am planning to replace the hard drive.

mail44

That doesn't really explain the practical differences very well, or at all until you read halfway down and already know a bit about network drives. In short it sounds like the My Cloud Home devices are best avoided. Software is poor, support bad and they don't offer regular SMB access which every computer and lots of media players, tablet/phone apps can connect to. Stick to the regular My Cloud (old or new shape), or get an EX2.

I should have added that calculation was perfect world scenario. If you’re with Virgin media or Talk Talk add on a few days/weeks/months ;)

freebies_please

Not quite 12.5MB/s. Theoretical of course. On local network perhaps close to 11.5 - 12MB/s. On Broadband it will be less, you need to allow for SNR for link speed, CRC errors, Peak time usage. In reality, probably close to 9 or 10MB/s. Your calculation is fine for perfect world situation or lab environment, however we live in an imperfect world. We must account for Error rate in transmission, link speed and link SNR, and most importantly peak time usage.

dazzadirect

Yep, just re-read it, you're right!

Started using this for family photos and documents that need to be cleaned out and it's quite good actually. I had to wait a bit (few hours) when I tried to retrieve the files, but it didn't bother me too much. Not sure what everyone is getting on about with "lifetime" as it's still cheaper than an external and other cloud services I found while shopping... even if it only lasts a few years (as some of commenters/psychics here have predicted) I guess time will tell. But I like it and it is easy to use, especially for someone who doesn't know too much about computers and things.

Patrick_Gerber

I actually have a paid Zoolz lifetime deal for going on four years now. Got an email recently saying I had to "pay a small fee" but they backtracked pretty quick (obviously got a lot of flack from angry customers, like me) and said the their lifetime accounts will not be touched. I respected that. Going to purchase this deal, because for a few quid it's worth having a second option.

James_Kerver

Sorry for the long post, but as someone who actually bought the deal, I think some may like to read what I experienced. I read the comments on the thread shared above, and it's definitely a mixed bag - certainly not anything that put me off. Most comments were just questioning the validity of 'lifetime', and very few saying it didn't seem to work (but sounded like technical issues not the solution itself). Fact is - you can find multiple threads about any cloud backup, complaining about the product! Anyway, purchased the deal and everything looks kosher, so far. Upload speed is perfectly (so far) adequate, and I didn't notice any file size limitations. Console is pretty simple but looks smart. Did test the restore with a request for a file about 970MB, and it did take about 4 hours to start receiving the data, then it was all over in about 60 seconds... just like my last date :p Bottom-line - for the price, and in my opinion it's well worth a look, but like others' have said 'don't keep all your eggs in one cloud' (nerd)

Sawb

And? What are you correcting exactly? was it thought data was stored in actual clouds?

happymanuk

It is perfect for photos, etc. As always, anything important should be backed up to more than one place - A phyiscal hard disk and then cloud storage is normally what I would do.

Cheers for all the replies guys, been a big help

JasonMason

Bought 2x camera set up last year. Set up is simple so long as you’re used to apps and smartphones, adding the cameras to the system was a breeze, and then popping batteries in and mounting them where needed was all very straightforward. I only have mine set on when I’m away from the house, I get activations from cats, posties, neighbours etc, all good so far, the app is great and easy to use, footage can be sent easily enough if needed, it’s worth logging in once a week to delete unneeded recordings (you get 2hrs footage stored free, so don’t want to go over this) Daytime footage is very clear but Night vision is probably the low point but for £200 it’s probably the best you’ll find in this price range (for 3 cams, module, app and cloud storage)

XxLJCJxX

I have two. One of which is overlooking my car. The PIR sensor detects movements and triggers the camera to start recording. The negatives of PIR is the technology is very old and the range isn't good. Anything over 6m away and the camera is unlikely to trigger. See my attached screenshot of the camera. If someone was to stand at the front of my car it would not trigger the camera. A camera running 24/7 to a HDD would probably be better for me but the simplicity of the Blink cameras is nice

bennyboy95

Thanks for that, what is the night vision mode like on them? I’ve seen the daytime quality and it seems good but haven’t seen much of night vision footage

Ok just posted an advert on FB and eBay selling for under £140 for this 2 Cam model. I bought for £79.99 so should be fine either eay I will keep the one I already opened to monitor inside the house, but will sell this other unopened box

Nope that didn't work turning mic off and speaker down has no bearing on the device recording motion solely based on sound!

Interesting note. For the past 36 hours, I've not been able to live view my cameras. Nor are they recording anything. I suspect there is a problem with the Blink service. They're all connected to the hub ok, just no action

Exactly. These kinds of cameras don't do too well through glass, especially at night, so you may continue to have problems. I believe if it is positioned right up against the glass of the window, that's the best.

Oooh ok I will check that out later and come back but tbh im not convinced this camera works via a pane of glass
