Home Security System

Ok so I was shopping for a system to put up at the house that gave me some versatility, captured what I needed and when I needed, and was cost effective. Well I found this gem and LOVE IT!

Just go to Amazon and search: Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera with cloud storage included, 5 camera kit

So these mount anywhere you can glue or screw. They use 2 Lithium AA batteries (and solar kits are already available) and work amazingly. I have a 1,950 sqft area with two Wireless AP’s to make sure I have sufficient WiFI for the house. I placed the main receiver hub in the attic right in the center. I have a camera on each corner of the house and one pointed at the front door.

The advanced motion zones on these are incredible and you can check out some of the other features on these below. I am a big fan and will be adding another camera or two in my setup very soon.

    • Extended battery life – 2 year battery life on two AA lithium batteries with a combination of two-way talk, live view, and motion recording. Double the usage of the XT on a single set of batteries when recording video.
    • 2-way audio – Talk to visitors through the Blink app on your smartphone or tablet.
    • Customizable motion detection – Use activity zones to choose where motion is detected so you receive the alerts that matter.
    • Free cloud storage – Keep hundreds of clips stored up to a year with no monthly fees or service contract required.
    • Works with Alexa – View live streams, motion clips, or arm and disarm your system through select Alexa-enabled devices.
    • Day and night coverage – Record and view in up to 1080p HD video during the day and with infrared HD night vision after dark.
    • Use indoors/outdoors – Blink XT2 stands up to the elements. Place or mount it inside or outside for whole home security.
  • Easy setup – No tools, wiring, or professional installation required.
