Amazon Blink Mini Camera Unboxing
We have mentioned that a very important factor in purchasing surveillance cameras is a stable cloud platform. Therefore, it is more reliable to choose a surveillance camera from a large company.
The development of large companies is stable, and the services of their cloud platforms are guaranteed. It’s not like some small companies that might go bankrupt after some years or couldn't afford the cost of the cloud platform. As a result, consumers bought cameras but couldn't use them any more.
Amazon is a big company. Their cloud platform is currently ranked first in the world, so we don't need to worry about the stability of Amazon cloud platform and the durability of the service if we buy cameras from them.
We recently purchased an Amazon Blink Mini surveillance camera. The following are Amazon Blin Mini Camera Tech Specs.

About the storage of Blink Mini Camera:
What we need to mention here is the cloud platform storage service of Blink Mini Camera. Let's take a look at the Amazon Blink Mini camera introduced above. Have we noticed that this camera does not provide a place to insert a SD card? In other words, this camera itself cannot store videos and photos. Currently you can use the free Amazon cloud storage service. However, starting in 2021, the cloud storage will require customers to pay.
Because this camera does not support SD cards, if we don't want to pay for cloud services, we have to purchase an additional device from Amazon called Blink Sync Module 2.

We will have an article to introduce how to use the Amazon Blink Mini Camera later. Welcome back.
