Amazon slashes prices on Blink XT outdoor home security camera systems

Amazon slashed prices on the full range of Blink XT outdoor home security camera bundles. We pay a lot of attention to home security at Digital Trends, especially outdoor security cameras, because security is one of the primary reasons people set up smart home systems. We’re fans of Amazon’s own-brand Blink Home Security cameras particularly because they save video clips to the cloud for free with no required subscription.

Installing the waterproof and weatherproof Blink XT indoor/outdoor cameras is relatively simple because they don’t require an AC outlet or a hardwired connection. Each wire-free camera runs on two AA batteries rated to last up to two years.

The camera system connects to your home Wi-Fi network via a Blink Sync Module. One Blink Sync Module supports up to 10 Blink cameras. A Sync Module is included with each system below, but not with the Blink XT Add-on Camera.

When the Blink XT’s integrated motion detectors sense movement they immediately send an alert with a short HD video clip to your smartphone. The camera also has infrared night vision to capture video in low and no-light settings.

If you have an Amazon Echo smart speaker, you can use Alexa voice commands with a Blink XT camera system to arm or disarm the security system, see the most recent video clip, or monitor a specific camera live. An Alexa system isn’t required, but with Alexa, you can stream to an Echo Show or Fire TV home screen to view the video stream. You can also use Blink’s smartphone app to manage the system and view video clips.

We’ve found the best discounts from Amazon on the Blink XT camera systems with one to five cameras plus the Blink XT Add-On Camera for existing Blink customers. Whether you’re setting up a new home security camera system or adding to an existing Blink system, these seven deals can help you save up to $200.

If you don’t already have an Amazon Alexa device, this bundle supplies all you’ll need to control your new video security system with voice commands plus all the other assistance, information, and audio entertainment that Alexa supplies. If you already have an Amazon Echo configuration, ten bucks for an additional Echo Dot is a rare deal.

Ordinarily $370 purchased separately, the Blink XT 3-Camera System with Echo Dot is just $210 during this sale. If you want to configure a 3-camera security setup, this is an excellent opportunity to take possession of a great system and an Amazon Echo Dot at a compelling price.
