BLINK WIRELESS REVIEW

Blink XT2 is the first device to feature Blink’s exclusive new chip technology, making it even more efficient. Blink XT2 can record up to 80,000 seconds of video on a single set of AA lithium batteries, twice as much as its predecessor Blink XT, when used for Live View and motion-activated recording—all with the same two-year battery life. It also comes with enhanced motion detection, including customisable micro-activity zones for more accurate motion detection and reduced false motion alerts, so you are alerted only of the movement that matters.

“We’re excited to bring customers a new and improved product with the same standout features they know and love, such as two year battery life, plus new features like supporting double the usage within this same two-year battery life, two-way talk, and enhanced motion detection to further improve the customer experience,” said Eric Saarnio, Head of Amazon Devices EU. “Starting at just £89.99, the all-new Blink XT2 provides an affordable and high-performing option for customers seeking whole-home security and peace of mind.”

Two-way talk provides added security by allowing you to have conversations with whomever is at your home, whether you’re home or away. Simply use the microphone talk button in the Blink app to greet guests or scare off bad actors no matter where you are. Blink XT2 will also store your clips for free on the cloud, so you can review or share whenever you want. Additionally, you can use the live view recording feature to capture and save any live streaming events you wish to review or share later. Blink XT2 also works with Alexa for added convenience. Just say, “Alexa, show me the [camera name] to view your livestream on your Echo Spot, Echo Show, or Fire TV.

  1. I think they’re great and the options given, too!

    But I can’t get my head around how useless they will be with only 2 hours of space. Maybe I’m understand it wrong, but if something happens, most people will look back days or weeks and not hours.
