Blink XT2 is the first device to feature Blink’s exclusive new chip
technology, making it even more efficient. It features extended battery
life, offering two years of battery life with just two AA lithium
batteries. When used exclusively for motion-activated recording or Live
View, Blink XT2 provides double the usage of the original Blink XT on a
single set of batteries. Or customers can use two-way talk and still get
the same two-year battery life. It also comes with enhanced motion
detection, including micro-activity zones to more precisely customize
motion detection and reduce false motion alerts, so you are alerted only
of the movement that matters. Plus, Blink XT2 is wire-free, making it
easy to install indoors or out for complete coverage and peace of mind.

“We listened to our customers and delivered a product that not only
improves existing standout features such as two-year battery life, but
also adds new features like two-way talk and enhanced motion detection
to further improve the product experience,” said Peter Besen, GM of
Blink. “Starting at $89.99, the all-new Blink XT2 provides an affordable
and high-performing option for customers seeking whole-home security and
peace of mind.”

Two-way talk provides added security by allowing you to have
conversations with whomever is at your home. Simply use the microphone
talk button in the Blink app to greet guests or scare off bad actors no
matter where you are. Blink XT2 will also store your clips for free on
the cloud, so you can review or share whenever you want. Additionally,
you can use the live view recording feature to capture and save any live
streaming events you wish to review or share later. Blink XT2 also works
with Alexa for added convenience. Just say, “Alexa, show me the [camera
name] to view your livestream on your Echo Spot, Echo Show, or Fire TV.
