The cameras can be used without any echo’s.
If you buy 2 of these you will have one extra camera module to sell. The module is what connects the cameras to the internet.

You can set up the extra hub on one account to boost the signal for the cameras if required I read on Amazon
I was really about to buy the Blink xt2 before Xmas, but then after reading some reviews on Amazon I thought I had to dig further. Many customers seem satisfied but some 1 and 2 stars reviews mentioned about poor performance in terms of response from servers when trying to activate the cams, plus a below average quality of videos and pics in dark light conditions. The good points are about the free cloud and versatility of the accessories, plus solar panel available. But then, if the quality of lens is not good enough to identify potential intruders in dark light during night times,then it's not much use to me. I don't want to go for traditional wired systems, mine has to be wireless and this seemed perfect at first..Reolink seems a valid alternative according to many, now I'm stuck with endless researching and not reached any conclusion yet. I also wanted optical zoom ptz and wireless, but those cameras basically exist only on very expensive systems and couldn't find anything below £600ish for a single camera with included solar panel.
I need real life stories and seeing actual footage and shots in dark light conditions of these Blink xt2 cameras before taking the plunge. I would appreciate any useful suggestions from owners of those.

Nah these cameras are great. Upgraded from Arlo Wireless. They take 4 seconds to connect via app when I’m not at home. I just ordered two of these to add to my single camera setup. I figure 3 separate cameras with different hub locations is better than one as I can move each one closer in terms of range. I’d highly recommend them, quality is brilliant, sound through the speakers is really loud too and I experience maybe half a second lag. There’s some half decent brackets too on Amazon, be sure to put them up a height though. Can’t comment on battery life yet but my Arlo setup was every 4-5 months.

In terms of identifying intruders, don’t see how these lack in comparison to any other cameras. I’ve actually had pics/videos thieves with my Arlo and they were hooded and never caught, second time I made it to my property to catch them myself (was getting building work done), they also know the cameras are there most of the time. I use mine for live notifications, but each to their own!

Let us now when QVC do it again please.

I just checked QVC and this system that is selling here is £179 so I'm a bit skeptical a 3 camera system was £139 or anywhere near.

What that person above may have bought was this the indoor version.

Reolink are great and more recently they are now able to link with Alexa and Google devices.
Reolink Eco was on Amazon for £49 which is a good price. I've checked a couple of days ago, you may still find it at that price, see the discount voucher. Reolink solar panels were also reduced from £25 to £20.
The other wireless models are Argus 2 and Argus Pro. The advantage of these is removable battery and wider viewing angle. Argus 2 has better vision during the night.
Got my Reolink Pro for about £55 directly from Reolink, shipped from Germany. They also have 5-10% off as first customer.
I did my research and concluded Reolink are better value than these.
With regards to my real experience with Reolink, unfortunately mine is still in the box, for the summer.
Another good alternative is the Eufy system posted a couple of days ago. It was about £160 from Amazon Germany for 2 cameras. I think the price is good, particularly if Reolink is at their RRP which is about £75-90 per camera. The disadvantage is Eufy does not have removable batteries and they do not have solar panels, but may work with generic ones. On the positive side, the risk of getting water in the cameras in low, as battery is not removable.
If I was to choose in between the 2, for £100 I will go with 2 x Eco. But if the price is over £120-130, I think Eufy are better value if you get them from Amazon DE.

The difficulty is there are often terrible reviews on all products, I nearly always get put off products because of the bad reviews.
If you buy from amazon then you can set it up and if it doesn't work their fantastic CS will come to your aid.

Reolink can be hooked up to HomeKit (and therefore live display), via Homebridge using ffmpeg. It’s a bit technical but a lot of cameras can be hooked up this way. Homebridge has a plugin for Yi cameras also... which is great. Easy to set up and their outdoor camera is cheap.

Hope this helps

I was surprised at how much better the XT2 was, the software, response (on the same network) and video quality are all upgrades, I even prefer the software and storage system. Then you have the features Arlo doesn’t have. I prefer the small hub on the xt2 than Arlo... (mine was wired via Ethernet and still slower than the blink). I had the very first Arlo, can’t speak about the newer models but you can deffo count Arlo first gen out over the blink xt2. Echo Show is a nice touch too with the display, 3 seconds and you’ve got the live video feed on there, can’t talk through it (or I can’t figure out how to) but that’s fine...

Thank you, I read about this, but a bit too technical for me. Was hoping for something more straight forward, out of the box to work with Echo or Google. I only have Google smart display and Alexa speakers (which do not count with the cameras anyway).
The blink's are brilliant. Got a 3 pack and they're extremely useful and easy to use - Especially with a Show or Firestick. 'Alexa show me the front door' and it shows the front door on the TV! Brilliant kit, and the batteries to seem to last ages- Battery life was my main concern. Still on the batteries they came with (unbranded) for 6 months, that includes a lot of usage on the lounge camera too as I always use it to check on the dog.

I thoroughly reccommend these!
I have the XT2, 3 camera setup. I bought on Amazon’s Black Friday Event for £184 including an Echo. It’s incredibly easy to set up. Placement is important - mine are about 12’ from the ground. A determined thief (with stilts or a ladder) could take them as they are easy to remove from their bracket. Of course the images of the thief would be transmitted to your app.
The xt2 is configurable according to what you need...
The only grief I’ve had in 3 months is the lenses steaming up on foggy or misty night time images. I treated this with some anti-misting windscreen solution.
Would I buy them again? Absolutely yes. Good quality clear images and a good battery life.

Mine is a year old and on original set and has high usage as it's a front door but I have short clips etc to save battery since all I want is a trigger, 16 today so far. Saying that tomorrow it could say replace batteries as there is no battery level indicator.

I have just got rid of my 2 camera arlo pro, good picture, let's you keep recordings for 7 days free, my Biggest gripe is the fact if anyone breaks onto your house, shed or wherever you had the cameras, in a court of law the footage is useless as there is no date or time stamp on the footage, and arlo have no desire to add it, its now been mentioned on their own forum by thousands of customers, not even the new 4k cameras have it, they have just never listened to customers, it's an easy update to do to the firmware.
Just order 2 (one for the mother-in-law), been looking at these for a while. I know the Echo show 5 was £59.99 not long ago, but it's gone up to £79.99 again now and the camera system on its own is quite expensive.

I have tried other ip camera systems and they are ok, their price tends to be cheaper, but if you want cloud storage that's an extra £5 a month extra etc.

I like the fact that with the Blink system you get cloud storage included, you get weather proof cameras with 2 way audio and you can set the area you want to detect motion on the picture (handy as we live on a main road). You won't get that with a cheap ip camera. Plus with this deal, you get the Echo Show 5 too.

Heat added!

EDIT: The ip camera the mother-in-law has is compatible with the Echo Show too, so it can be added to the system anyway.
