Using a smartphone and the Blink Home Monitor app, Blink Outdoor and Indoor customers can see a live view of their home, receive motion detection alerts, and use two-way audio to speak to people or pets around their home. Customers can create custom “activity zones” to cut down on unnecessary alerts in high-traffic areas as well as remove sections in their camera’s field-of-view from video recording using Blink’s all-new privacy zone feature.
“For Blink, providing peace-of-mind and exciting new products to our customers is everything,” said
Blink Outdoor and Indoor are available for pre-order today in the
Flexible Storage Options
Customers want choices when it comes to how their video clips are stored. That’s why Blink now offers two video storage options: cloud and local storage. All Blink Outdoor and Indoor cameras include a free trial to Blink’s cloud storage plan – valid through
Customers can also choose to store video clips locally, with no monthly fees, using the included Sync Module 2 and a USB flash drive (sold separately). Blink’s Sync Module 2 connects up to 10 Blink cameras, allowing customers to create a robust network of devices they can control with ease – and right from their smartphone.
Extended Battery Life
Blink’s all-new battery expansion pack allows cameras to run on four AA lithium batteries instead of two – doubling the camera battery life to up to four years in total with normal use. While Blink’s cameras already have a powerful two-year battery life due to Blink’s proprietary chip technology, the new battery expansion pack is especially compelling to customers with cameras placed in high-traffic or hard-to-reach areas who want the convenience and flexibility of a wireless solution – without the hassle of frequently replacing batteries.
Works with Alexa
Blink Outdoor and Indoor are Alexa compatible. Customers can ask Alexa to arm and disarm their cameras, watch recorded motion clips, or say “Alexa, show me the front door camera” to see a live view through an Echo Show, Fire TV, or Fire tablet. Customers can also set up motion announcements and customized routines, like turning on smart lights when a smart home camera detects motion. For hassle-free battery maintenance, customers can have Alexa send reminders when batteries run low and set up smart reorders.
