Netgear’s line of Arlo cameras is undoubtedly the best known lineup of battery-powered home security cameras, but there are a bunch of other options out there that people should consider. If price and battery life are among your top considerations, then you absolutely must take a look at the Blink Indoor Home Security Camera System. $99 gets you a starter kit with a hub and a Blink camera with HD video, motion detection, cloud storage and, perhaps best of all, 2-year battery life. That’s a little less than half of what you’ll spend on the newest Arlo camera model, and that doesn’t even include a hub. There are also bundles available with 2 cameras, 3 cameras, or 5 cameras.
Here are some more details from the product page:
