It has been nearly two years since I reviewed the original Blink XT. Since then many new products have hit the market to contend with this outdoor security camera, but many have failed to offer the same level of value this low-cost camera achieves.
Since I reviewed it, they were bought out by Amazon, and today they announced the all-new Blink XT2.
The Blink XT2 is the next-generation outdoor/indoor, battery-powered, 1080p HD video smart security camera now with two-way talk. With Blink’s exclusive new chip technology, Blink XT2 features double the video usage of the original Blink XT when recording video and has enhanced motion detection. Plus, Blink XT2 is wire-free, making it easy to install indoors or out for complete coverage and peace of mind. Blink XT2 is available for purchase today, starting at just £89.99 with cloud storage at no additional cost and no monthly fees or service contracts required. New customers can purchase a starter system, inclusive of the Blink XT2 and required Blink Sync Module.
Two-way talk provides added security by allowing you to have conversations with whoever 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 live stream on your Echo Spot, Echo Show, or Fire TV.
