CES 16 - Blink and You're at CES with the Next Big Thing in Smart Home Monitoring -- 2016 CES Innovation Award Honoree, Blink

Blink Celebrates CES Debut and Shipping Milestone by Giving Away a System Every Hour on the Show Floor

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off a $5.8M investment and recognized as a 2016 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home category, Blink is poised to be the next big thing in smart home monitoring systems by taking on the competition with affordability, extraordinary battery life and more.

Blink's Kickstarter campaign was one of the top crowdfunding technology projects of 2014, and both Kickstarter and pre-order systems are now shipping! To celebrate, Blink will be giving away a system at the top of every hour, and demonstrating the features that make their home monitor truly one of a kind:

Flexibility - Blink's cameras are wireless AND wire-free. Each is powered by AA batteries that can last over a year.
DIY Sensibility - Set-up is simple, as is adding cameras to an existing system, so users can create, customize or expand their Blink system quickly and easily.
Affordability - Blink's three-camera system is available for approximately the same price as many other single-camera systems. All Blink systems include free video storage on Blink's cloud, and require no monthly fees.
Blink starts at $109 for a one-camera system, and a multi-room, three-camera Blink system is just $229. When motion is detected, video instantly starts recording (within a fraction of second) and an alert is sent to your mobile device via the Blink App for iOS or Android, allowing you to see exactly what triggered it and decide how to respond.

For those who desire more immediate or on-demand home insight, Blink's Live View feature makes it simple to check in any time, from anywhere. Blink's HD camera is also small - about the size of a deck of cards. Two AA Lithium batteries can power each camera for over a year, and battery replacement is simple. Night vision, free cloud storage, auto arm/disarm, temperature alerts, and a built-in microphone round out a rich feature set that allows Blink to deliver whole-home peace of mind to renters and homeowners alike.

Blink is created and produced by Immedia, whose breakthrough low power solutions enable Blink's unprecedented image quality, battery life, price point and small size. Its unique place in the growing U.S. DIY smart home market won it recognition as a 2016 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home Category. CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.

Blink will be demonstrated and displayed at 2016 International CES at CES Unveiled on January 4 (booth #62), as well as the Sands, Tech West, Booth #70431, from January 6-9, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
