The Amazon Blink XT Smart Security Camera has customizable motion detection, you can decide where, in the camera’s vision motion is important, meaning that distracting movements by pets, kids, or plants won’t alarm you. It is powered by two included AA lithium-ion batteries and works over Wi-Fi, sending alerts and recording video clips from 5 seconds to 60 seconds long when triggered by motion.
Getting the most out of your Blink requires understanding how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your Blink XT. Misuse may damage the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
Blink XT FAQ
Where can I find the Blink app?
Can the Blink app be accessed from more than one device?
Yes! You can download our app to as many iOS and Android devices as you’d like, so the entire household can receive alerts or check in at home. Please note that Blink’s initial release will only allow for one active Live View feed at a time.
I just purchased a Blink XT system will the Blink XT2 camera work with this?
Yes the XT2 will work with your existing Blink System as it uses the same sync module. You can have up to 10 Blink devices per sync module as long as they are all within the 100 ft operating range of the sync module in any direction. The cameras on the sync module can be in any combination.
Why can’t I purchase the Blink XT anymore?
The Blink XT2 is the next generation of the XT and offers new and improved features such as two-way audio, customizable motion detection, double the battery usage, and live view recording, all for an even lower price!
What kind of batteries does Blink use? Are they easy to replace?
Blink is powered by two AA Lithium batteries. All systems will ship with batteries, and they’re easy to replace when the time comes; simply slide open the battery compartment, take out the old batteries, and insert the new set.
It features 1080p full HD video quality with a 110-degree field of view, two-way audio, and night vision. How do I program my outdoor blink camera? Amazon offers free storage for all of your clips on the cloud so you don’t have to fuss with MicroUSB cards or downloads. That’s a plus in my book. I hate paid subscription services.
