Today, Blink who make the popular Blink wireless home security camera system which I’ve reviewed and continue to use is announcing the addition of the new battery-powered Blink Video Doorbell to their selection of smart home products.
The weatherproof Blink Video Doorbell features HD video alerts, motion-detection, live streaming video with 2-way audio, and infrared night vision.
Anyone can install this video doorbell because it doesn’t require special wiring or an existing wired doorbell. It’s is powered by 2 AA lithium-ion batteries that will last for up to 2 years!
“While other companies try to wow early-adopters with tech and unnecessary features, at Blink we are disrupting the smart home industry through a zealous focus on simple products that provide huge value at an unmatchable price,” said Peter Besen, CEO of Blink. “We’ve taken our award-winning experience from our security cameras and applied it to the doorbell. We feel this has resulted in the absolute easiest to install, full-featured video doorbell on the market today. Combined with our existing wire-free cameras, consumers will have peace of mind that their entire home is safe when they are away.”
Unlike many other video doorbells on the market, the Blink Video Doorbell won’t lock you into a monthly service plan.
If you already own other Blink home security products, you can add the video doorbell for just $99. New Blink customers can purchase a stand-alone system consisting of a Blink Video Doorbell and a Blink Sync Module for $129. Pre-orders will be available soon at the blinkforhome.com.
