This Amazon bundle includes an Echo Show 5, a compact smart device with Alexa voice control, interactive display, crisp sound and an endless array of features to help you manage your day, entertain and connect, plus a Blink XT2 Smart Security Camera System, which boasts two-way audio, customisable motion detection, an extended battery life and compatibility with Alexa. Easy to set up making it ideal for everyone not just the tech savvy, make your home smarter and safer with the help of this amazing Amazon bundle.
Let the Show begin - the Echo Show 5 is made to fit your life. Featuring a 5.5" smart display, speaker and 1MP front-facing camera, it's ready to help you manage your day, entertain at a glance and connect to friends and family with video calling and messaging. You can call almost anyone hands-free including UK mobile and residential numbers (from UK only), other Echo devices and Skype. Designed with your privacy in mind, you can easily turn off the microphone and camera with the press of a button or simply cover your camera with the built-in cover. You can personalise your Echo Show too, by choosing the clock face that fits your style best or using your favourite photos on the Home screen. There's even an ambient sunrise lighting feature to get your day started the right way, plus you can easily follow step-by-step recipes, update to-do lists and calendars and glance at weather and traffic on your way out.

Just ask Alexa - a voice-controlled personal assistant, Alexa responds to your questions and commands when you say her name. Alexa can check your calendar, get news, weather, traffic or sports updates, and even create shopping lists, as well as order you a takeaway or an Uber, or you can ask her to look up a recipe and she will read it out for you to follow!

No more shouting up the stairs - grandpa in the attic? Dad in the study? Kids in the den? As long as there's an Echo Show or Dot in the room, you can ask Alexa to 'Drop In' and send them a voice memo to let them know "It’s teatime", or even to "Turn the music down!". Drop In is an optional feature that allows you to instantly connect hands-free with the Echo devices in your home, and it can also double as an intercom or baby monitor.

Indoor/outdoor security - with its ability to withstand the elements, place or mount your Blink XT2 wherever you want it, inside or out for comprehensive home security - no tools, wiring or professional installation required.

Peace of mind day and night - record and view in up to 1080p HD video during the day and with infrared HD night vision after dark using your Blink camera system, then keep hundreds of clips stored for up to a year with no additional monthly fees through Cloud storage.

Hear them, see them, speak to them - talk to visitors via the Blink app on your smart devices, and receive notifications, as well as set up customisable motion detection to choose where motion is detected, so you receive the alerts that matter.

If I had malicious intent it was quite clear that it would be safe to go ahead. Have you come to a different conclusion or just bought into the advertising for an overpriced piece of flawed tech?


Maybe they were sat on the sofa, saw it was you and when you didn’t go away they answered on the doorbell and pretended they weren’t in. lol

I have several Shows and several XT2s and whilst I mostly find them OK there are various annoying issues if you plan to use them together as camera and viewer. Here are the main issues.

1: It takes between 10 and 20 seconds for the Echo Show to load the camera after you have said "Alexa, show me the front door".

2: At least a quarter of the time it just doesn't work at all and fails to show anything even after the 10-20 second load time.

3: Whenever you ask to view the cameras, if it works and shows you it, the camera you are now viewing starts recording and you need to delete each viewing or you will run out of space eventually.

4: In an average house you will be putting this outside, this means the WiFi signal to them will be very weak if you have older thicker houses even if the router is right near them through the wall. If you keep them at the highest video quality then you will not be able to live view them at all due to low bandwidth. All mine are set at "saver" quality (the lowest setting) as a workaround for this known issue. Our router is less than 2m from the front door one and the WiFi signal is still the lowest strength.

5: They do not work at all on 5Ghz WiFi networks, so you'll either need to switch to 2.4Ghz or dual if your router offers that option.

I think you’ve had a few too many beers. Nobody mentioned anything to you. The thing is if I had a ring I doorbell and I was in the house when someone called I may just answer on the doorbell because I couldn’t be bothered getting up, so people would not know if your in or out.

Will forgive them at this price
RRP is misleading as full price from Amazon themselves is £160. Still a decent saving so heat added.

Voted hot, not a bad price. As far as I am aware cheapest Blink was £75 and cheapest Show £50, so decent save and you also get £5 as a new customer. There is a possibility Black Friday to beat this price, but probably not by much.

Decent for the price, the only other ones closer to this price, in fact cheaper are Reolink . Unfortunate Reolink cannot be used with Alexa or Google yet, but they do have wider viewing angle.

Me too, this might just might hit the sub £100 mark.
How long does delivery normally take from QVC? Kinda tempted with this but also put off with everyone saying there'll be better on black friday - especially when the blink looks like it was on offer 2 for £140 a couple of weeks ago...

I thought the main idea was to be able to see who is at the door and have some video evidence (like security cameras) if they did rob your house. You don’t have to speak to them but you could inform them you have called the police too. Also, isn’t a common way of robbing houses to check work patterns by knocking the door over a few days so they can be sure no-one is in at a certain time of day? At least you could pre-empt a burglary......maybe. Or you may just be a tech geek

This is like the third interation the doorbell by ring and the likes of Google are now in on the act.

I'd hazard that if they increase break-ins then they would have been discontinued a long time ago.

Besides, how is this really any different than a would be burglar ringing a doorbell, not getting an answer and proceeding to break in because now he knows someone isn't home? At least with Ring you have the uncertainty and video evidence as a deterrent, not to mention the opportunity to call the police earlier than you otherwise would have.

In your opinion it's a flawed piece of tech, but that's just like your opinion man. Not an informed one. Just because you don't see the value in it, doesn't mean everyone else is wrong.

Yes, you name the cameras and then say the camera you want to see. I've been using blink now for several yrs and very pleased with them. The only thing they lack is instant notification and able to view the feed live like on ring. This is something they have talked about bringing in with a future update.

Looks to be a good deal too!
The Blink XT2 is good but one camera seems largely useless. Also the sound quality of the Show 5 is pretty poor, so don’t buy it if you intend to listen to audio a lot.

As others said, best to wait for Black Friday, Amazon Echo devices always get mega discounts and the Blink may do as well (Amazon owned isn’t it)?

Agreed, no burglar would ring a doorbell and risk waking up the occupants.
Can't comment on the blink as I've not used it but my show takes forever to connect to my Neos cam and has a significant delay compared using my Lenovo display and wyzecam. The cams are in the same room as are the displays so there's no reason why one is so much worse than the other.

Echo show only takes only a few seconds to connect to my Nest cameras - suggest issue with Neos / Alexa integration.
