I have found a blink API https://github.com/fronzbot/blinkpy.
I have dabled in python - so I wanted to see if I could get this to work. And I was able to save an image.
I think I want to create a page that will load with a few simple controls that allows me to login - so I don't have to include my u/p in my script. Not sure what I'll use for that. I'll have to do some research. Button to get an image. Maybe see if I can figure out how to stream short video.
I also don't like that you have to include your u/p in the script. That should really be in a config file somehwere. If I get ambitious maybe I fork the repo and figure out how to do that. That would really be my first contribution back to a public project.
