Features are the only thing that makes a particular product attractive or useless. So in this case, we have got some extraordinary features to discuss. We will be taking a look at the technical specification and features.
We will discuss features such as video, night vision video, storage and all other, in detail. You can consider this section as an important part of this review because all valuable details will be provided here.
While having a look at the 1080p HD video, the first thing comes in my mind is perfect clarification and distinction of every object, the camera focuses on. The industry-standard video assures clean and clear vision.
However, the space for field view is a bit narrow but still, it has the ability to cover 110 degrees. What I prefer is to have a view of 120 degrees. So, we cannot say it as a deal-breaker camera in the market but can be regarded as a fine gadget for outdoor use.
Moreover, you will not be able to get the desired coverage because the Blink XT2 smart security camera system only allows you to zoom in digitally rather than zooming in optically. To me, it appears an ordinary camera at the video front.
Blink XT2 camera system appears to be a fine camera for night vision. The camera will be providing you clear video streaming at night via its infrared LED lights.
Most of the experts prefer to have infrared LED lights as compared to color night vision. The bright light in the night vision appears more authentic than the colored vision at night.
And, if you want to know either the camera is recording or not, then the company has introduced a blue light as an indicator. The indicating light indicates that the camera is on and it’s recording. Overall, the camera gives a perfect night vision and I think you will love it.
The major difference between the Blink XT2 camera system and its predecessors is the inclusion of two-way audio. And, this feature makes it superior. The company is offering a Blink Home App.
The app allows you to speak out to the person, whom you are recording. This camera can be an ideal one if you want to contact a person away from you. For instance, you are in your restroom and someone knocks at your door.
You can speak out to him/her even staying in your restroom. Moreover, it will help you to make intruders stay away from you and your house. No doubt, it can perform extraordinarily in such situations.
Because robber or stealers requires one voice to ran away from their target. So, audio seems impressive.
The storage options with Blink XT2 camera system seem more impressive and that might be an attractive package for you. The company is allowing two different ways to store your footage and both are impressive in every sense.
So, if one of them gets fails, you will have other options to avail. Blink XT2 camera system comes with cloud storage that you can avail of free of cost. The cloud storage has the ability to store particular footage for one year and it seems good for me.
And, from there, you can easily download the footage to your local storage, if you find that footage important. But, the cloud storage only holds video footage of 7200 seconds.
So a total of two hours of footage can be stored on cloud storage. To me, this security camera is no more than an ordinary device as it only provides limited storage. Moreover, no local storage option is available for you.
Smart Platform Integration
You might feel happy to avail of this product. You will be happier even more if you are already using Amazon home. The best thing about the Blink XT2 camera system is that it allows support for Amazon’s smart home ecosystem integration.
The security camera allows you to integrate with Amazon Alexa for enabling voice commands. But, this camera might not be a perfect fit for you, if you integrate it with your Google, Apple, or Microsoft ecosystem.
However, the integration with Amazon Alexa enhances the credibility of this product.
In the market, there are numerous high-end security cameras, which notify you whenever they detect some type of movement in the vision. The high-end cameras send you a notification when they detect the movement of a person.
They are considered more sophisticated cameras. They use face recognition. The more suitable and smart notifications are being broadcasted whenever they detect the movement of a human.
Unfortunately, the Blink XT2 camera system does not feature face recognition, therefore, you will not be getting any notifications as well. I feel a bit depressed after knowing that Artificial Intelligence is not up to mark.
In order to make this security camera more convenient, you should use the Blink XT2 camera system with a sync module. The module will start the camera installation on your request.
You just need to plug in the module and then integrate it with Wi-Fi. The integration can be done using the Blink Home app. After that, you need to plug in two AA batteries in module and camera as well.
Then, start an integration process and you are on the go. The two AA batteries of the Blink XT2 camera system make it’s last for two years.
Moreover, you will not have to use any type of mount, just place this security camera on a flat surface. Yet, the Blink XT2 camera system appears to be a perfect fit for you in terms of convenience.
There are different price tags for different versions of this security camera. Obviously, you will have to pay more for getting the upgraded and advanced version.
With such durability and comfort, you should pay $200 max. As mentioned above, the Blink XT2 camera system hits an IP rating of 65 and with such price, this security camera is affordable as compared to other similar security cameras. Overall, it is a great deal to grab.
Wait! You have something new coming up here. Blink XT2 camera system comes with a lot of exciting features. Let us have a look at those extra features.
Blink XT2 camera system comes with built-in temperature sensing. This extra feature allows you to read the most accurate temperature just like some other standard temperature tools.
Blink XT2 camera system comes with an amazing feature of activity zones. This feature allows you to focus on some specific locations and you can also ignore places that you don’t like. This feature just makes this security camera perfect for outdoor cameras.
For instance, you owe a security camera and you just need to focus only on your property rather than focusing on the street. Therefore, you will be receiving important messages only. This seems amazing.
