    Mm...in the long run, you are better off buying your own cctv (wired or wireless) for a one time expense rather than taking up their add on camera with the recurring fee. A good quality 1080p wireless cctv with email alert notification and PIR sensor (passive infrared) cost a little over usd100.00/unit. You need a little less than 1 mbps upload to livestream.

    Blink is an Amazon company. It comes with free cloud storage (where footage is automatically uploaded). I can recommend this reliable system (assuming you do not need 24/7 continous recording).

    Mm... The footage can only be accessed through the Blink app on your device (have it on my iPhone and iPads). To set-up, you need to input each Blink cam code on each of your device. How secure is Blink’s server? It is an Amazon company. I trust Amazon. As for storage capacity, I have 34 20-second clips on storage right now and it says 10% of my cloud storage capacity filled up. Once filled up, it will auto-delete your oldest clips or you can delete it manually.

    Once it is armed and motion is detected by the PIR, Blink cam instantenously starts recording (up to 25 seconds, user-defined) and resets after 10 seconds. During which time, an email alert is sent to your device and the footage is automatically uploaded to the cloud. It records both video and audio (it can easily pick up any sound even muffled convo).

    Woke up around 5 AM earlier today. Connection seems to have been restored. That was the longest service outage in my whole 2 years of subcription to them.

    4 years with Converge and this is probably the longest outage with them. I'm not sure if its my imagination, but the connection speed seems snappier now.

    Fortunately, I haven't cancelled by PLDT 3 MBPS plan. I was able to use it yesterday for work. However, 3 MBPS does not make for a pleasant online meeting. I'll keep this plan around for backup.
