Blink XT features

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. 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.

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.
