Is the system secured from hackers?
It is wrong to say hackers don’t care about breaking into home networks because with distributed computers they can and do have networks the make the process of breaking into all computers for evaluation for their criminal enterprises an automated task which runs slowly and cumulatively over time with next to no personal sweat.
Will this camera detect outdoor motion if mounted inside, close to a window?
I just bought this camera and have tried this briefly with poor results (so far). The window glass reflects the infrared light back into the camera, even with the lens pressed against the glass. I’m not sure if it will work better with the camera further away, or at an angle, but I also bought an outdoor camera and it’s working fine through the windshield of my car. All of this is testing, and otherwise the cameras seem fine
What kind of plug is with the mini cam?
Cable end connected to the Mini Camera is Micro USB, and the other end connected to the power source (any phone charger) is USB-A.

Do you have to have the subscription, or will it work and save clips with your other blink devices?
If you are an existing Blink customer, the mini will save video to the cloud just like your other Blink cameras. There is no subscription required. If you are not an existing customer then you get the trial subscription and have to pay later. So, if you already have an id and cloud storage for other Blink cameras, there is no change with the mini.
Do I have to pay Subscription of any kind?
If you add an SD card to your Sync Module, don’t need a subscription.
Would this be good to put in a kids playroom?
It’s not wireless, just put in the place where the kids can’t reach it.
It works well
