Blink cameras offer a no-frills setup; you don’t need to recharge a battery pack or wire them into your home’s electrical system. Rather the XT2 runs on two AA batteries, which should last for around two years before needing to be replaced, indoors and outdoors, with constant live streams and recording. Since users change the batteries themselves, the Blink XT2 can be set up anywhere — along the side of a house, in a room, above the front door or even under a deck.
The XT2’s view is captured by a 1080pHD lens with a 110-degree viewing angle, and the stream is sent over your home’s Wi-Fi network. It also boasts night vision, a microphone, an LED light, and a motion sensor, and it’s IP65 water-resistant. Plus, a speaker allows for two-way communications from a FireOS, iOS or Android device with the Blink app. That companion app is also necessary for setup.
