You will find the Blink XT manual below. The 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.
What you might not know and is important is if you purchase the XT that you understand how it works and how to best use it. You want to mount the XT properly so it works in the way intended.
User manual for the Blink XT
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.
We also have the manual for the Blink XT2.
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.
