Blink Outdoor is a wireless, weather-resistant HD security camera with two-year battery life. It’s made for outdoor installation in the yard, garden, or home. After you set up on your WiFi network and plug it in to the power outlet where it’s connected with video cables, you can use your smartphone or tablet to view it remotely when you’re away from home. The camera has multiple settings that allow you to choose which parts of your property will be monitored using Blink Outdoor’s motion detection algorithms or its high definition 720P HD resolution. You can also customize the camera’s settings to suit your home security needs. The camera will send alerts to your phone or tablet when it detects motion, as well as let you view video footage directly from a networked PC.

Features
With Blink Outdoor, you don’t need to buy or install special equipment such as a dedicated security system, a long-range security camera, or a wireless alarm system. You can use Blink Outdoor without any additional setup and without installing any new cables or wires. This compact outdoor HD security cam operated by WiFi only connects to the Internet and is powered simply by an outlet and 12V cigarette lighter. The camera works with the free app and Chime to provide a high quality 720P HD live feed and two-way audio. It also goes offline if it detects a power outage. The camera features tamper-proof, weather-resistant housing, a motion sensor, a microSD card slot for storage expansion and customizable motion detection zones. If that sounds like something you need for your home security system, you will be surprised at how affordable it is

  1. two jacks

    I feel comfortable reviewing this now, we have had this system since January, so it’s been active for 6 months.PROS:Easy installation and wireless Web and phone app work well Battery life very good, so far mine have lasted the 6 monthsCameras have good viewing and picsYou have the option to block certain areas in the camera view, which helps alleviate picking up moving branches and stuff.CONS:Camera has a delay of 4 to 10 seconds before it picks something up.Example: Our walkway is 25 feet long, motion is not picked up until you are 2 feet from the door. Then runs for 45 seconds, stops recording. If the person stands there or moves to door, it usually does not pick that up. Therefore, yes it will alert me that someone is there but they could literally break my window now. Cause the camera has a delay before it activates again.I come home every day and it does not pick me up walking in my front door. Yet it picks up the bushes moving.You can set the camera to continue if it picks something up but again the delay is the issue. Literally someone can be in my house before the camera gets it.Cameras are NOT continuous monitoringOVERVIEW: If you are looking for a basic system, this will probably fit your needs. We bought the system with 5 cameras and paid $400 for it in January. I WANT to know immediately when there’s activity not in a few seconds. Therefore we ended buying another system to replace Blink.

    This new camera is better then the Blink xt2 ! It has been totally re-engineered. Take it from someone who owns all the different cameras Blink had to offer since day one and had to get on a waiting list to get the very first one. So, I should know what iam talking about. This new camera no longer has the push down and pull system to open the back to install batteries. It has a large screw that you simply unscrew with a included tool to open the back of the camera which is really nice. Once you open the back and install the included batteries scan the small QR code inside the camera threw the blink app it will scan to find the camera once that is done it will automatically do a firmware update. After that you are ready to install your new blink camera. Also noticed the sound is much louder and more clear then the other cameras. This is good if two people are talking in a low voice you can hear what they are saying. Has brighter clearer night vision. Nice clear voice communication with two way talk. Alot stronger wifi signal to sink module and from sink module to camera. Sharp, clear, bright, and colorful HD vision during the day. I noticed before I wrote this review that some people only gave this camera 2 or 3 stars. Like the guy who is complaining about software issues. Well if you follow the directions you would not have that problem. Let the camera finish its firmware update. Duh ! Also, if you have been a Blink customer for a while and want to add this camera to your current system. You do not have to pay for cloud storage you are grandfathered in. After you add this camera to your existing system it will actually tell you this ! The front of the camera has a all new face with a very smooth and shinny surface iam sure to help combat the weather and give it a more high tec look. Their is no longer a switch inside the camera to turn on or off the blue recording light located on the front of the camera. It’s is all done threw the app which is really nice as well. They really did a good job in re-engineering this camera and listened to customer complaints about their past cameras and went threw and fixed every issue. I would definitely buy this camera again ! UPDATE : 09-25-20 After using this camera for a couple of days. And as other reviewers have noted that this camera only has a 25 foot motion trigger ! Anything further than 25 feet it will NOT record when motion is present. So if you need a camera get the Blink XT2 for the further range. This camera will only be good for specific areas like door or window that are within the 20 to 25 foot range from the camera.

    So far so good with these cameras. I find it hard to believe that I got five cameras and a monitoring station that has all of the Alexa capabilities and so on (Echo Show 5) for the price I paid for it which was right around $220 on an Amazon black Friday deal. The fact that you can hook these cameras up in just a few minutes with no wires and sync them etc. so easily it’s just incredible. Technology has come along way in just a few years. I have mine set up two in the front yard two in the backyard and one on one side of my duplex . With the way they are set up I can catch virtually every square inch of my surroundings all the way up to my end of my street and all the way to the end of the dead-end street. The backyard I can see just about as far as my eyes could see if I was out in it so it’s pretty incredible.. The picture quality in the daytime is very very good. I will admit the night picture quality isn’t quite as good and suffers from a little bit of sort of what I guess id call jittery picture at times but still all things considered not bad at all and I should also point out that all cameras suffer from this that I’ve seen, even the more expensive Ring cameras and Arlo cameras. The cloud service is very reasonable at only $10 a month and if you have unlimited Internet like I do you can arm them and have them set pretty reasonably and you’re going to catch most anything that might happen around your place . Keep in mind though that these are not 24/7 cameras, these are motion cameras and they are only going to flip on when there is something that is set to record from your settings but they cannot stay on 24 hours a day like a casino security camera . Also want to point out it unless you’re going to wind up running them corded the battery power on these isn’t going to last very long if you have them set very high I have mine set to where they only record at night or when I’m gone on a trip and the settings are set on the mid end to avoid false alarms because I want the batteries to last. if I need to see something during the day I just go into the app and manually look . Some people may want to have different settings and may have their supplies of batteries on hand but for me that’s the way I wanted it set up and it’s working out great. Very good system for an excellent price. Obviously since I haven’t had them very long I don’t know about reliability just yet , but if you subscribe to Amazon’s cloud service if whenever does go out they replace it so there’s not much to worry about anyway. I highly recommend buying these especially if you can get them all they’re on sale. With my Xfinity modem/router tower I have full signal to all 5 cams and no need for any Wi-Fi boosters so they are pretty potent signal magnets too.

    These cameras work absolutely amazing! We had a problem with a neighbor harassing and blatantly threatening us and other tenants in an apartment complex, and now we can use the footage with both audio and visual (as quoted by the local sheriffs too!) to prosecute this jerk! You can adjust the length of the videos and the motion detection. Batteries do not have a long life if you use high video length and a high sensitivity but you only need lithium batteries to replace them every so often. Since our landlord does not seem to care about our public safety we decided to take it into our own hands. We even caught this guy being a peeping tom at another neighbor’s window at 2am! So the night vision works awesome as well. Despite these actions we most definitely feel safer with these cameras in front of our place, can clearly see when packages are dropped off too, etc. It acts like your own neighborhood safe watch. The app is easy to set up as long as you have good wifi in your place and can have notifications pop up on your phone so you can monitor it as you go about your day. If you need security for your home this product is a no brainer and most definitely worth the investment! Plus the service is only $10 a month!! Thank you Amazon for helping us. I have never been in a situation like this before but I am sure glad we have these cameras!

    Originally I loved my blink cameras. I bought a blink doorbell, 3 outdoor cameras and 2 indoor cameras. First one of the outdoor cameras started looking like it had fog covering the lens. I tried everything I could do to fix it and couldn’t so I threw it away. Now one of my cameras isn’t working at all. It just keeps doing a slow red blink. I put it next to the sync module and replaced the batteries with brand new batteries. It’s still not working. So now I’m down 2 cameras. I am a single mother on a very fixed income so I can’t keep replacing cameras. I really believed in this company but I’m at the point where I’m ready to go with a different company.

    I bought these for a house we were moving to so didn’t even hook them uo for a few months. Finally it was time to get in and work on the home. I sat up cameras out in my yard and all are mounted to trees. One is pretty far and so far no connection issues. The video shows rhe pool company coming to make a repair after hours. If not for the cameras I wouldn’t have known. My other camera showed the work and when they left. I get lots of nighttime deer videos too. Time will tell how long the batteries hold up but I had no other way. These also blend in so no one would notice they are there.

    We purchased our first Blink Home Security Camera July of 2018. We were going out of the country and wanted to make sure our 18 year old son closed the garage door and locked the house. It did the job and we felt better knowing while on the other side of the world we could monitor our home.The following Summer we were so happy with our indoor system, we decided to purchase 2 outdoor cameras with the 2 way audio, and were so happy with the video and audio quality, we bought another add on outdoor camera, the next month.A year later we found the mini indoor cameras. We have one for a child’s bedroom and one for the playroom. The video and audio quality is great.A year after that we bought another 3 outdoor Cameras, again video and audio quality is great.Just before Christmas 2021 Blink came out with the doorbell camera, and we purchased it. One, because it was blink and 1/2 the price of a ring doorbell camera. Two, because the doorbell that came with our new build home was so quiet, we couldn’t ever hear the bell ring.In total we now have…3 Indoor battery powered2 Indoor mini corded power6 Outdoor battery powered1 doorbell wired to exciting doorbell.Cameras purchased…July 17th, 2018Blink Indoor Home Security Camera System with Motion Detection, HD Video, 2-Year Battery Life and Cloud Storage Included – 3 Camera Kithttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B018HC6PVA/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_E4N35AJJXM4QAYYN1S03?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1July 15th, 2019Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera with cloud storage included, 2-way audio, 2-year battery life – 2 camera kithttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MN67BCR/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_2VZV3YZ7F3X4F5WSF9SF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1August 20th, 2019Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera with cloud storage included, 2-way audio, 2-year battery life – Add-on camera for existing Blink customershttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B07M8DTHGL/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_7XGZ93G8PTGGNHTNBGEK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1November 22nd, 2020Blink Mini – Compact indoor plug-in smart security camera, 1080 HD video, night vision, motion detection, two-way audio, Works with Alexa – 2 camerashttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X27VK3D/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_dl_0CVS1GZCPQPJE577M0JV?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1August 3, 2021Blink Outdoor – wireless, weather-resistant HD security camera, two-year battery life, motion detection, set up in minutes – 3 camera kithttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B086DKSHQ4/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_dl_9F09K8M142MATNJY1C7P?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1November 29th, 2021Introducing Blink Video Doorbell | Two-way audio, HD video, motion and chime app alerts and Alexa enabled — wired or wire-free (Black)https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08SG2MS3V/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_dl_JTH38J37N7ST707FMW4P?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1Blink offers two subscription plans.1 Blink device$3 per month or $30 annuallyUnlimited Blink devices$10 per month or $100 annuallyYou do not have to have a Blink Subscription if you do not choose to, but you won’t be able to store videos.With the subscription you are even able to share your videos by text, or email. To neighbors, Friends, Family, and even the police department.Cons/irritationsWhen an outdoor camera faces the sun at any point of the day, the motion detection will go off, until you adjust the motion activity spots in the camera settings. This can take a few days to work out the kinks.Indoor mini cameras the motion activity spots don’t always work. Sometimes it will go off when there is motion in the grayed out zones, and sometimes not go off in the non-greyed out zones. This maybe human error on our part. We are looking for a longer cord for the mini’s to mount on the wall or ceiling. The are options to rotate the camera view, so that you are able to mount the camera wherever you need.Overall we are happy with our Blink system and hope the company continues to grow and come out with new products.Compared to my parents very very expensive Arlo system, Blink is more reliable, and is more cost-effective. So much so, my parents have ditched the Arlo camera system and have purchased a new Blink system.We highly recommend Blink to anyone who would like to have a home video camera system that works, and won’t break the bank.We love that you can start out small and work your way in to as much as you want/need.

    When we first purchased cams back in 2017, we compared to Arlo and Ring before we chose Blink. Now we are up to 10 cams, covering every angle of the house. Here are my findings after using them for almost 4 years (and still buying more):PROS:> #1 video quality is excellent. Day time is a bit better than night, but night vision is as good as it gets with cams. POSITION of your cam matters a ton. I started out putting them way high up and quickly realized – if you actually want identifying features – they need to be lower. Otherwise… yeah you see someone walking past, but you cant ID anything, so what is the use.> So inexpensive – so easy to integrate. Anytime we have ANYTHING we need to cover, we just order another cam and it literally takes 5 minutes to get it out of the box, batteries in, and added to existing system.. seriously – 5 minutes.> The app is great. Very intuitive. Our first cams had very few “advanced features” every time i order new cams, they have improved their features. Now you are able to zoom all the way in to very small areas, to capture certain areas and exclude others.. For example – old cams you had to block off large sections of the capture area to avoid the cams picking up movement from trees, but now you can pinpoint one little part of a branch on a tree to exclude if its triggering the cam.> Motion detection is very sensitive – but they have it tweaked just about right. It never misses anything, but if you setup your exclusion zones well – you can get it almost perfect. I dont have a lot of false alarms and I’m running 10 cams. We have one setup to look at the sidewak, and after much tweaking, we can actually exclude the street… but pick up both sidewalks on both sides of the street. You can setup the app to alert you or not alert you.. you can turn sound on or off on alerts. On windy days I do end up just going into the app and turning off all cams that are setup around lots of trees until the storm is over.. but thats like a few times a year.> Super easy playback and control of cams. It’s instant – you can control them in any way, very easily. If I am working on a project in the yard, I dont want my cams on for hours, running out of batteries – so I just go into the app and turn them all off. It takes seconds. Likewise – if i hear a noise at night, super easy to open the app and live view any cam so i can look all around the house and see everything happening outside, from every angle.> Extremely easy to move around. We have had them for years – so we move them around occasionally. I even had mice in our crawlspace under the house at one point and just grabbed one of the cams off the side of the house and stuck it down there so I could catch them at night. Theres no commitment with these – no hard wiring so you can mount them anywhere and taking them on and off the mount takes 2 seconds.> No subscription needed to store clips. thats BIG for us. We would not like blink as much if they changed that. We run a lot of cams and it just stays 100% full storage – we can still access a few weeks worth of video, it just deletes oldest. You can download/save any videos.> Lots of mounting options. You have to buy them separately if you want anything special, but I have 3 different types of mounts – one for trees, one around porches that need to be secured so they cant be taken, and then the standard mounts for cams not at risk of being taken. There are camo skins as well – I have on in a tree that you pretty much cant see unless you know its there.> Customer support is super decent. In the winter of 2018, one of my cams took on a green hue to the image when the temp went down to about 10 degrees outside. I emailed customer service explaining the issue and sent a screenshot and within 24 hours they asked me for the SN of the cam, and did a firmware update that fixed it. I was quite happy with that.CONS:> So while the batteries are awesome because the cams are so easy to move around and deal with… i blow through batteries. Fortunately, i just get 20 packs of AA’s, but with 10 cams – even though Blink ~says~ batteries can last a year? it totally depends on usage. So we get LOTS of traffic on our front cams because we live in a busy area and have people walking past all day. I change out the batteries on every one of those front cams once a month. Granted – thats many hundreds of video captures and ideally, we should connect those cams to electricity somehow – that is an option with blink, but I dont mind changing batteries. On the cams in the back yard and side paths – I really can go once or twice a year changing those, except for the ones that catch a lot of foot traffic. So the battery usage is totally dependent on traffic. Personally – the cams are a big deal to me, so i dont mind it at all. Benefits totally outweigh the downsides.> The biggest difference between Blink and some other companies is that i see other people with hardwired cams that can catch EVERYTHING in a continuous fashion, for hours. like the surveillance videos you see online where the cam just happened to catch something happening down the street…Blink doesnt work that way. it only captures immediate video clips, triggered by motion activation. It does store all videos.. you can see something weird in your yard and look back through videos to find out what happened – but it isnt 24 hours of continuous video feed.> You can get gaps in your videos. So it can capture 1 minute of video at a time, but then it takes a small break before it starts capturing again, so if something is happening and its videotaping an event – it will record an entire minute of excellent footage – but then it takes a 5 second break before it starts recording again. that doesnt sound like a long time, and for security it’s not normally an issue.. the average bad guy is in and out quickly.. but it is annoying that it takes 5 seconds to re-trigger. So…. 2 minutes of continuous video… but in the middle of that 2 minutes.. a 5 second break.OVERALL – Super high video quality… cams you can move around super easily… a very easy app… I love blink and the upsides far outweigh any downsides. I always recommend it to people when they ask. You can cover your entire house at a super affordable price, you dont need to be rich at all.. Our 3 year old cams are still as good as our brand new ones. The peace of mind the cams bring me is priceless. I know every single thing happening everywhere, all the time outside. The affordability made it possible so that nothing can ever surprise us.

     We’ve got some bad actors in the hood, so it was time to catch them with some irrefutable evidence. Our XT2 is a little old and our Arlos are acting stupid. Saw this come out and had to give it a shot. It was time to upgrade. Plus, the specs of the possibility of TWO YEAR BATTERY LIFE is mindblowing. It’s probably a lot less, but my Arlos would last a week with $10 CR123 batteries, so that had to go. Anything had to be better than those dinosaurs.Set up was fairly easy. There is no real printed instruction manual, but those are rare today. Scanned the QR code and my smartphone popped me to their website with tons of tips, info, and even setup videos. The entire setup process is QR from the new Sync Module 2 to the camera itself. So don’t make the mistake of slapping the batteries in and closing the camera unit like I did before I scanned the QR code. Whoops. Took less than 15 minutes to setup and sync. Signed up for a new Blink account so the old one won’t get confused – plus there’s several weeks of free cloud storage right now. Boom.Set it up in a tree ACROSS from my house this time. When I put it over my door, my old cameras would flag every car or pedestrian close and far. All I want to see is the jerk stealing my UPS packages, so I flipped the perspective. The HD is super clean and clear, and the camera is at least 30 feet from the sync module with no problems connecting. Big plus there. And, there’s a pretty powerful little speaker in this unit! I was really surprised at the volume this thing can push for such a small speaker. Now, when this alerts me to funny business, maybe I’ll be able to yell at the perps. Probably not, because they’ll be long gone by the time I see the notification. Still, this feature could be useful in warning your kids from doing something silly when you’re not home.The live view was disappointing, since you have to keep clicking the app to continue the live view for longer than 10-ish seconds. So you can’t use this as a spying device or a baby monitor. Bummer. Also, the default recording time was like 5 seconds, probably to maximize battery life. You can’t catch much in 5 seconds. I adjusted mine in the settings to about 20 seconds. I’ll sacrifice battery life to catch a bad actor. Plus, there’s a battery pack you can attach to this unit to increase battery life. I’ll update in the future to let you know how the battery goes.Overall, I’m impressed with the new Blink outdoor. It’s gonna rain here in Florida soon, so I’ll let you know how that goes as well as night shots when available.

    I was fortunate to buy in early on the Blink camera system. Therefore, I have the included cloud coverage. Only recently did I find out just what an advantage that was.After buying my initial system, I continued to add cameras to the initial sync module. I ultimately ended up having two additional sync modules from systems I purchased after the original system. I was under the impression that all my cameras had to be connected to the original sync module to continue receiving free cloud coverage.I currently have a mixture of cameras to include 3-XT2, 4-Outdoor, 1-Indoor (2nd gen) and 2-Mini. I was using a schedule to arm the cameras, but I was disappointed that the system would not allow individual scheduling for each camera.I recently decided to use my additional sync modules to divide my cameras into different zones and allow myself to set different schedules for each zone. Even if it meant the additional modules would not include free cloud coverage, I felt the scheduling control would be worth it.I was happily surprised to find that even the newer modules set up under the original system included free cloud coverage. Therefore, I now have three different zones that can be individually scheduled. And furthermore, I can add up to 10 cameras to each module.I only ran into one problem with the setup. The second module I had purchased had been sitting in the box for probably about a year. When I tried to add a camera to it, it would not connect. I called customer support and the first person wasn’t able to help me. I decided to investigate the problem myself and noticed there was a huge difference in the firmware on the second module.I expected that the firmware of the second module would automatically update, and there was no way to initiate an update within the App. Since it didn’t automatically update, I called customer service back and told them the problem. The individual I spoke with didn’t seem to understand the issue, so I simply insisted that the module’s firmware had to be updated by them.It took a number of increments to finally update the firmware once the issue had been escalated to the appropriately skilled technician. I insisted that the customer service representative stay on the line until the firmware of the second module exactly matched that of the existing module. I wasn’t trying to go through another 30 minute hold and 20 minute update again.After the firmware was updated, I was able to add cameras to the second module. I will monitor the module to make sure future firmware updates occur.I realize that the cloud coverage or camera support may change or discontinue in the future. But for the time being, I’m quite happy with my Blink system.
