I have been struggling with an Izon System to monitor my 2nd home for years. After replacing one device, I have given up as it triggers but never saves any video.
I purchased 3 Blink cameras and an alarm (not yet functional) through Kickstarter and, despite being unhappy at how long overseas backers had to wait, am extremely pleased with the system. Video quality is excellent and the monitor triggers every time and video always uploaded. I can even track an 'intruder' (my kids for this trial) from room to room.
I love the fact that it was easy to set up and just worked from the box. The iPhone App is very intuitive and is easy to arm / disarm the whole system or just some cameras. The schedule function is also very useful. With forthcoming IFTT functionality, this will be even better.
My only complaint is that, as the cameras trigger via a PIR (rather than image analysis on the Izon), it does not work through windows and so I cannot monitor the back door, which means that unfortunately, I need to keep the Izon camera for this.
Overall a fantastic system for the price and especially for beginners.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
