Details

Most people will blink at having to drill holes in their walls to feed a cable through to power a smart camera. For those folk, the Blink Outdoor offers a wire-free solution. The battery-powered HD security camera works day and night with infrared night vision. Users can watch in real-time or get alerts when motion is detected. 

The two-way audio lets you take to unexpected guests via the app and you can watch the 1080p video clips to get a good idea of what’s going on. You can use the app to create motion zones where you want to be alerted to activity, and it can store video in the cloud via a subscription service or locally using a Sync module (available separately). 

Waterproof to withstand the elements. This two-pack bundle helps you cover key areas of a home or business, like the front and backdoors, or provide an overview and close-up view of the same area. For smart home users, it can work with Alexa so you can give audio commands.  

If you’re worried about leaving it outside, it operates at temperatures from -4 to 113° Fand weighs just 48 grams, so can easily be stowed in crevices or put in high places. Overall, this makes it great to install and forget, except for those times when you really need to see what is happening. 

Summary

  • Small and unobtrusive way to monitor local activity
