Amazon’s new Blink XT2 smart camera is cheaper than the original

Amazon has announced the Blink XT2, tracking Blink XT camera that was launched in late 2016. The Blink XT2 is built with a new chip, which offers a longer battery life of two years to through two AA lithium batteries and improved motion detection over the original. Best of all, it costs less.

The Blink XT2 is now available for pre-order at $ 89.99 per camera, each of which includes free cloud storage at no monthly charge. If you plan to install multiple Blink XT2 cameras in your home or property, Amazon is selling a $ 99.99 package that includes an XT2 camera and a synchronization module, which is necessary to pair the Blink wireless cameras. Advance orders will begin to be distributed in the US UU On May 22 and the new camera will be available in Canada later this summer. Best Buy will also store the new Blink camera.

The XT2 looks almost exactly the same as the XT, and, similarly, the XT2 is weather resistant (IP65 rating), and can record 1080p footage. Amazon and Blink have incorporated bidirectional conversations into the XT2, and it also works with Alexa voice commands. Beyond the simple queries, you can watch a live broadcast of your cameras on your Amazon Echo Spot, Echo Show or Fire TV device saying "Alexa, show me the [name of your camera]".

It's still surprising why Blink cameras won Not integrate with Ring devices or with their own Amazon Cloud Cam. The XT2 competes directly with Ring's own Stick Up camera. While the new features and the lower price of the XT2 are appreciated, it does not change the fact that Amazon has several players in the connected home space, but currently they are all in disagreement with each other.
