Blink is the wirefree, home security and HD video monitoring system that’s simple to install and runs on two standard AA lithium batteries for two years. Blink video security provides a watchful eye and one-click connection to the home through the free Blink Home Monitor app for iOS and Android devices, allowing customers the ultimate peace of mind when they are away. We have tried and tested their last offering which still serves me well today and is 100% reliable and efficient which does not require an expert or registered electrician to install. This time of year would be also a great idea to get some form of security installed at home or office if you have yet not done so and this is also affordable..

In response to customer demand for a weatherproof model, Blink is launching the Blink XT, suitable for outdoor use in all seasons. The Blink XT works with Blink’s indoor models, so current users can integrate seamlessly with existing systems, but can also be used independently with the Blink Sync module, the base station sync module hub.

“We are thrilled to announce our affordable outdoor camera so Blink customers and new users alike can protect their entire home, inside and out,” comments Peter Besen, Blink CEO. “The Blink XT demonstrates our commitment to developing integrated products that serve the home protection needs of consumers by fitting perfectly into their lifestyles.”

The Blink XT detects motion, and immediately sends a push notification alert and an HD quality video to a user’s smartphone. The system can be armed/disarmed remotely, and live video can be watched anytime from anywhere. The Blink XT includes configurable 5-60 second clip length, IFTTT and Amazon Alexa integration, a two-year battery life, weatherproof technology, infrared night vision and 1080p HD video quality. Priced at £149.99 inc VAT for the XT camera and sync module, it is the most affordable outdoor camera on the market, with no monthly contract or storage fees.

Blink’s free online storage, with no contracts or monthly fees, allows users to manage their clips the way they like to, save locally, share or enable automatic management.

Key features:

Two-year battery life – With two off-the-shelf AA lithium batteries, Blink XT cameras will last two years versus other battery-operated cameras that have a battery life of only a few months.

1080p full HD video – Blink XT is the only battery-operated camera to offer 1080p support for crystal clear full HD video. Customers can select between the 720 HD default or 1080p.

Weatherproof technology – Blink XT is IP-65 rated to ensure that the water-resistant unit delivers clear, HD quality video no matter the conditions.

Infrared night vision – Allows for round-the-clock surveillance, day or night.
