Blink announces new battery-powered outdoor camera


Earlier this spring I reviewed the Blink Wire-Free HD Home Monitoring system and since then they’ve gone on to sell over 250,000 of their battery powered security cameras. Today Blink is announcing the addition of a new camera. The Blink XT is an outdoor version of their battery powered camera which features a two-year battery life when used with two off-the-shelf AA lithium batteries. The Blink XT has a weatherproof design and is IP-65 rated to ensure water-resistant. This camera also has infrared night vision unlike their indoor cameras which use a flashlight illuminator.

The Blink XT will be available for pre-order starting today Monday, December 5th for $119 and will ship by February 2017. Also, just in time for the holiday season, they are offering a free Blink XT to customers who purchase a 5 camera system before the end of the year. For more info visit and Amazon to order.

  2. Yay! I have their indoor system in my home and my office, and I’ve really wanted something to monitor the urban wildlife in my back yard. I’m hoping they offer me a loyalty discount 🙂
