Jude from Virginia, CA

Jude bought a Blink security camera for her truck and wants to know how she can use it while she's on the road. Leo says she'll need to have it connected to the internet. So putting a mobile device in hotspot mode would work. But Leo recommends using Wyze Cams because they don't require a subscription, where Blink does. And it only needs 5v USB, so she could plug it in with a USB charger and something with an internet connection. That's a good solution and they're only $20!
