If you want a truly wireless camera system that is as hassle-free as it can possibly be, there’s really only one system you should even bother considering. Blink XT Home Security Camera System offers all the same features as comparable wire-free systems, but it has one huge advantage over everything else out there: insane battery life. Each camera is powered by two regular old AA batteries, and they last for a whopping two years on average before you need to change them. Similar cameras typically last for three or four months at most! The 1-camera Blink XT package costs just $129, and there are packages with up to 5 cameras available as well. Then once you’re set up, you can always add on individual cameras whenever you need to.
