Should You Get a Smart Floodlight?
I want to tell you about one of my favorite hardwired upgrades for a Blink or Wyze security camera, and that would be the Wasserstein 3-in-1 Smart Floodlight, Charger, and Mount.
First off, let’s look at the top features – smart access and complete control across any device you want, 2000 lumens of beaming bright light, and ultra-sensitive motion sensors. Beyond that, there are so many cool ways you can customize it and adjust the settings to fit your own personal needs.
In other words, this thing packs a serious punch.
Let’s take a deeper look at the smart controls.
Possibly my favorite part of the 3-in-1 Smart Floodlight, Charger, and Mount are the smart controls. You just download the Wasserstein App on your smartphone or tablet, connect to the smart floodlight, and you instantly have access to a wide range of customizable options. And THAT means you can adjust your floodlights from basically anywhere!
What features can you adjust exactly? We’re talking: turning on and off your lights, light sensitivity, floodlight color, turn off timer, and even the floodlight schedule — and that’s just the half of it! You can also adjust motion detection range, floodlight light sensitivity, duration of the light flash, as well as event records from your camera.
Additionally, you get easy connectivity with standard smart home assistants like Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant. So say goodbye to boring, basic floodlights, and say hello to full-automation and full-control!
Let’s look at the hardwired connectivity.
The 3-in-1 mounting system means your camera is hardwired to your home’s power supply, so you never need to worry about running out of power. Your camera stays ready and enabled.
Is it difficult to install?
Nope. While it might be called hardwired, the wiring is far from difficult. In fact, these smart floodlights install just like your old, boring floodlights. You just shut off your circuit breaker (safety first), remove your old floodlights and connect the new wires accordingly. The steps are super easy to follow and are outlined in the User Manual included with the purchase.
How do you connect your Smart Floodlights to the Wasserstein App?
The first thing you’ll want to do after installing your Smart Floodlights is download the Wasserstein App from Google Play or the App Store. From there, you can either log in, or create a new account if you don’t have one already.
Once you’ve logged in, either click ‘Add Device’ or the ‘+’ in the top right corner of the Home page. Next, you can either select ‘Add Manually’ or ‘Auto Scan’ to find and add your floodlights.
If you select ‘Add Manually’, find and select the device called ‘PIR Light (BLE+Wi-Fi)’. Then, enter your Wi-Fi details and hit ‘Confirm’. Once you receive a message saying ‘Added successfully’ and you are free to start customizing your smart controls.
In some ways, 'Auto Scan' is even easier. All you do is select ‘Auto Scan’ and search for your floodlights, ‘PIR Light (BLE+Wi-Fi)’. Select the floodlights, enter your Wi-Fi info, and you’re all set!
Once you have your floodlights connected to your Wasserstein App, be sure to get comfortable playing around with all the features. It definitely helps to become as familiar as possible!
Say no to a dim house.
Let’s talk about the one feature that will REALLY light up your life. I’m talking of course about the 2000 lumens of beautiful bright light!
I can’t emphasize enough: these things are bright. You really see every nook and cranny of your property. You can adjust the brightness if you want (through your smart controls), but the peace of mind you get in knowing that your floodlights have such an unrivaled power output makes them totally worth the investment.
A mount that actually works
Can I just be blunt for a second? I hate camera mounts that fail. I hate when companies advertise the strength of their mount, only to find that the flimsy piece of junk doesn’t even last through the winter. Fortunately, this mount is the complete opposite of that.
Strong, sturdy, and durable are just a few of the words that come to mind when you hold this camera mount in your hand. What’s more, is it’s completely adjustable, so you can get the best possible viewing angle with your camera. You just secure your camera onto the mount, plug in the micro-USB, and adjust it to any angle you want.
It’s not often that you find such a balance of flexibility and durability you get with this mounting system. It’s truly a one of a kind.
It’s a must-buy.
If you have a Blink or Wyze security cam and are looking for a fantastic hardwired upgrade, look no further. The Wasserstein 3-in-1 Smart Floodlight, Charger, and Mount is the cream of the crop when it comes to lighting, power, and mounting options. Just be sure you get the model designed for your particular camera since the Blink and Wyze models are different (though both are equally awesome).
The smart access and control alone are enough to get this perfect piece of equipment. Throw in the constant power supply, ultra-bright floodlights, and secure mounting system and you’ve got yourself one of the best smart cam upgrades you can make this year!
