This is the modern way to check what's going on at home. It's a wire-free monitoring system - but it's also a little like the best toy on the planet.
The Blink is a wire-free HD home monitoring system. It has motion and temperature sensors to give you updates in real time. Using the Blink app on your smartphone, you can get messages when there is motion in your home. You can even view events live from the app. The camera on the Blink also has night vision, so you won't miss what is happening in your house while you're away.
