With indoor cameras, there’s no need to worry about matters such as the weather (though the weather-resistant properties of the Blink Outdoor 4 offer some more freedom in this regard). The likes of rain, snow, and fog can obscure a camera’s view, and that familiar weather-based foe, condensation, can damage its components if it makes its way inside.
Sheltering outdoor devices from the elements is one factor to consider, and again, a higher position on your property is a safer place to do this (and will generally also afford greater visibility). Be mindful of the impact of the sun’s passage across the sky, as not all Blink cameras can be aimed away from glare as flexibly as the indoor Blink Mini Pan-Tilt. Monitoring a feed will help you ensure that your camera is in the best place to provide 24/7 surveillance.
For Blink’s floodlight-enabled devices, like the Outdoor 4 Floodlight Camera, a high and relatively safe location is similarly recommended. As these devices’ bright spotlights make clear, though, they’re intended to be highly effective deterrents, and to help with that goal, installing them in conspicuous spots is a great approach.
Vulnerable areas like windows and doors are the most important outdoor elements of a home to cover, so an unobscured view of them and their immediate surroundings should be prioritized. Lastly, be sure to consider how the space (or its contents) may change over the course of the day and night.
