What customers say about "Key Specs"
Blink Indoor Camera Home Security System with Motion Detection
  • True wirefree home security monitoring system. Easy setup. Strong sync module reception.
  • Camera is truly wireless. It runs on battery which lasts very long so I don't have to worry about wires. I hate wires so I automatically love this.
  • The resolution is pretty nice, I was able to catch a UPS thief this year steal a package from my front porch, so all good there.
  • Great resolution, good contrast, good sound quality, quick motion detection. Option to run the camera completely wirelessly. Syncs to Blink module quickly. Ability to schedule recording times.
  • The minimum motion sensing delay setting between the events. The minimum delay setting between the events is 10 seconds.
  • I recommend the camera but but first note the field of view is fairly small.
Blink XT Home Security Camera System
  • Picture quality is pretty good, especially for something powered by a pair of AAA batteries.
  • Image quality during day is excellent. Night time usage isn't crystal clear, but I live in a dark area and still amazed at what I can see!
  • No wires to deal with--great when you live in a house that can't easily run cabling or power.
  • The resolution is clear day and night. Actually captures people walking onto my porch, not as they're walking away (like the Ring did).
  • Picture in night mode is sub par for a 1080P camera (my $60 960P Amcrest camera's perform much better night mode).
  • No ability to zoom in which renders the 1080P resolution pretty worthless.

  • The size and weight of the camera, allows for many mounting and placement options.
Blink XT Home Security Camera System
  • It's really, really easy to set up. Cameras are really small and light.
  • Very compact and inconspicuous. Love the no-wires feature. Would be perfect if it had live view.
  • Like the easy set up and compact size of the unit. Picture is clear and sharp.
  • The camera is compact, and easy to mount interior and exterior.

What customers say about "Features"
Blink Indoor Camera Home Security System with Motion Detection
  • No expensive proprietary batteries. The system uses readily available AA batteries.
  • Mounting options included are well designed to give you close to unlimited viewing angles.
  • I can view Live from any camera from anywhere! (I would never have purchased these otherwise.)
  • Has motion sensor to capture videos when there is a motion and camera is armed. This means I don't have to record all junk.
  • Has app and connected to internet so I can see it from anywhere in the world.
  • No motion sensing zone setup. Anything moves anywhere in the field of view will set off recording and alert.
  • You cannot arm/disarm the motion sensing of the individual cameras. Either they are are all armed or disarmed.
  • It does capture based on motion within its range but doesnt have night vision. I have few recordings at night but cant see a thing in there as it pitch dark.
Blink XT Home Security Camera System
  • Snapshot option and live view. Easy to set times for arm/disarm.
  • Reliable connection during the week plus I have it (much less bandwidth demanding than Ring doorbell for example for the same picture quality).
  • Can choose between battery operation or microUSB power.
  • WIFI Range--very good. I have one camera at the front of the house and the other camera about 100 feet away on the front of the garage.
  • This is a big one - no motion zones. This severely limits placement of the camera.
  • Live view takes too long to load (over 10 seconds at times).
  • Cameras do not handle shooting into bright light--for example, my front porch is 8 feet deep and sometimes the cameras have a static white balance and people can appear dark once they come onto the porch.
