Amazon cuts prices for Blink XT2 wireless indoor and outdoor security cameras

Security cameras are among the most popular smart home devices because they deliver on both convenience and security. Amazon dropped the prices for its Labor Day sale on the latest indoor/outdoor security cameras from Blink, an Amazon-owned brand. The wireless Blink XT2 1080p full HD cameras include two-way talk features and run for up to two years on two AA lithium batteries.

There’s a lot to like with the Blink XT2 cameras, the company’s second-generation version launched in 2019. The Alexa-compatible cameras are suitable for indoor use, possibly even more than you need inside, but when you put them outside, XT2’s IP65-rated weather resistance and infrared night vision pay off. Blink’s indoor cameras don’t include two-way audio, so for that reason alone, you might want to use the XT2s exclusively. The camera can also record two-way conversations.

The Blink XT2 cameras have a 110-degree wide viewing angle and use a passive infrared sensor to detect motion. You can customize activity zones to be alerted when someone or something moves within the zones, but avoid distractions from alerts for movement in other areas, such as sidewalks and busy streets. Mounting the camera is easy. With the included ball mount you can place the cameras pretty much anywhere, whether you want them visible as an extra deterrent or more hidden.

The Blink XT2 only works when connected wirelessly with a Blink Sync module. The Sync module connects to your home Wi-Fi and up to 10 Blink cameras can connect to the module. The Blink Home Monitor smartphone app, available for iOS, Android, and Fire OS, receives alerts when the camera detects motion. You can use the app to view the camera’s live video, call up recorded video clips stored in the cloud, and have two-way conversations. Blink video clips store in the cloud for no charge for up to a year.

If you use Alexa with the XT2, you can view live video or recorded clips on Alexa compatible smart displays including Echo Show and Show5, Echo Spot, Fire HD 8 and HD 10 tablets in Show mode, and on Fire TVs.

Amazon’s Blink XT2 sale includes kits of one, two, three, or five cameras with one sync module per kit. There is also a deal on a single Blink XT2 Add-on camera to use with an existing Blink installation.
