Blink XT manual

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.
