Adding security measures…..cameras ?

Since we have been using marinas during hurricane season it occurred to us that we might want to consider some additional security measures since most marinas are easily accessed by the general public and with that comes the risk of theft or other crime. We already have sturdy locks, cables and other security items on board.  I did some research and since we needed a system we could transport from location to location we decided to go with the Blink cameras.

The battery life was impressive (up to 2 years), they are wireless, easy to remove and install,  WiFi compatible, have an app that goes on your phone, tablet or both…they have in app adjustable motion sensors,  sensitivity, clip length adjustment ability and night vision.

These cameras can also operate off the hotspot on our phones while at anchor….although if we wanted to monitor them remotely we would have to leave one phone on board while we were gone. But they can add an extra sense of security at night if someone were to approach the boat as they camera will alert your phone almost immediately once the motion sensor is activated.

here’s a link if you’d like some for your boat or home !!!

I'm the average sailor...converted from a landlubber of course. While I was born with a love of the ocean it has evolved into a love of sailboats and other vessels that ply the open seas and connected waterways. I am probably like most of the people who (hopefully) will read our blog with the exception that we are now doing what we always dreamed of doing and I hope to help others do the same. I am NOT any of the following...a naval architect, a marine surveyor or connected commercially to any builder, distributor or boat sales organization. My opinions are generally my own, although influenced by many years of research.
