New weatherproof Blink XT camera features two-year battery life, 1080p Full HD video, infrared night vision and much more, now available for pre-order at $119

Boston, MA (December 5, 2016)Blink, the ultra-affordable, wire-free home security and HD video monitoring system, today revealed its highly anticipated outdoor camera, Blink XT, featuring 2-year battery life, weatherproof technology, infrared night vision and more. The new camera is available now for pre-order for $119 and will ship in February of 2017.

Alongside other recent upgrades Blink announced earlier this fall – including extendable 5-60 second clip length and Amazon Alexa integration – the outdoor camera features:

Industry-leading affordability – For the price of $119, it is the lowest in the market, making outdoor security accessible to all consumers

Two-year battery life – With two off-the-shelf AA lithium batteries, Blink XT cameras will last two years versus other battery operated cameras that have a battery life of only a few months

1080p full HD video – Blink XT is the only battery operated camera to offer 1080p support for crystal clear full HD video

Weatherproof technology – Blink XT is IP-65 rated to ensure that the water-resistant unit delivers clear, HD quality video no matter the forecast

Infrared night vision – Allows for round-the-clock surveillance, day or night

“After much anticipation, we are thrilled to announce our affordable outdoor camera so both loyal Blink customers and new users alike can fully protect their homes day or night, no matter the season,” said Peter Besen, CEO of Blink. “Our customers have been anxious for a weatherproof model, and this new camera illustrates Blink’s commitment to developing integrated products that serve consumers’ home protection needs while integrating flawlessly into their lifestyles.”

The Blink XT easily works with Blink’s indoor models, so current users can integrate seamlessly with their existing systems. Blink’s wire-free video home security and monitoring systems start at $99 and delivers crystal-clear, HD quality video through the Blink Home Monitor app available for iOS and Android devices. Each system comes with free cloud storage, Alexa integration, auto arming and disarming, a built in motion sensor and a temperature sensor.  Blink units can be purchased on Amazon.com or directly through the brand’s website at blinkforhome.com.

The outdoor camera will be on display at CES in January, where Blink has been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree for the second consecutive year. The brand won recognition for its system within the Smart Home category, which was chosen by an esteemed panel of judges that includes industry designers, engineers and media.
