This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I love the Blink and Arlo camera system.
why I hear a lot of you ask?
free online storage with no monthly cloud costs I scream back!

joking aside these camera kits are normally £179.99 so it’s a good deal in itself.
what makes this even better is that screwfix are throwing in a free echo dot 3rd gen and most places have stock. On amazon you will need to wait for early December to get this delivered and no free echo dot

EDIT: amazon configuration is now showing the option to add a free echo dot.
good deal all around

here’s a review online for the camera system.

The 1 camera was £75-80 on offer plus additional camera for £50-60, so almost the same price as this. But the Dot is a bonus. I do hope to see the 2 camera system for £99 or under on BF, but it seems they are doing bundles now, and even it is better value, I do not need anymore lights, smart speakers and so on, I've got too many.


Cool story bro

Hi,best deal I seen on these so fare, heat
>On amazon you will need to wait for early December to get this delivered and no free echo dot


Maybe its account specific. On AMZ I see this same kid for 134.99 with a free echo dot - if you click "configuration" it says "With Echo Dot(£0)"


Tempting but heard too many stories about battery life
These's cameras any cop for ourdoor use? Heard reports of battery life not being great and rechargeable not able to be used. does the hub need to be hard wired to the router? tia
The hub uses wifi it does not need to be wired to router.

I use these indoors and outdoors and the batteries have always lasted in excess of 12 months. They aren't triggered very often at all however so perhaps those with short battery life have their cameras triggering far more frequently?

I find them very useful as you don't need to run any cabling anywhere to use them.

It's true you can't use rechargables.
Dont argos have these at the same price with a echo dot worth £22 free ?

Awesome thanks for the info. I must admit I was I was looking for something, ideally I didnt have to wire in. I was considering the ring floodlight cam (which is weird) - Hows the picture clarity on these? at night also? I like there's no monthly fee, are files stored on the hub or do they require micro sd?

Read about Reolink too. They have good reviews. Wireless and HD, but they do not work yet in the UK with Alexa or Google, they do outside of Europe.
If you look to get Reolink, go on their site, unless Amazon has a good price. Reolink Argus 2, Argus Pro and Eco are a few options. Usually about £80 a piece, but got mine from their site at £55. Delivered from Germany. Worth to have a look

Thanks OP, been meaning to fit security cameras but just haven't got round to it. Ordered and pick up tomorrow, Heat from me.

Just been browsing, was looking at the Reolink Argus Pro (out of stock on website) as it looks more sturdy for outdoor use. How would you say the battery life is? And how is it charged without the solar panel can I ask? Just looking to get one for the garden to watch the dog really and use the two way audio to tell him off if needed!

I've got one for the garden, the pro version. Unfortunately still in box, as I've got it after the summer, so is for next year. Paid £55 and best price I came across was £53.50.
I only know is good based on reviews. I was planning to buy the solar panel too, but decided to give it a go first without and see how it goes.
Unfortunately I will be unable to tell you how it works until the summer, sorry😁. The reviews suggest it is better than Blink and the viewing angle is better. I think the Eco one has the same angle view as the Blink and the cheapest I came across was about £50 on sale.

Just been reading the amazon reviews, your right they do all suggest its better than blink and ring, and the reviews seem legit too!

Hope it will be good, £66 is not bad. Please leave some comments here, I do hope I've made the right decision getting this. Maybe you should have waited for the BF/Cyber Monday, but I guess you can buy again and return this one if the price will be better.

It's the same price on amazon
Bought the three camera version via Amazon for £155 on Saturday.
Very impressed with them. Very easy to set up.
Cheaper on ao if you don’t want the echo dot

He said in another Blink XT2 thread that he paid £175 ! According to camelcamelcamel, the cheapest the 3-camera system has been is £195 (on Amazon, at least)

Yep, I’ve been checking sites over the last weekend and I though £195 was the lowest on amazon, £189 on ao, currys had a 10% code last week but I was too late and the 3 pack was oos

Just picked up my twin pack from Screwfix (ordered yesterday) it took me about 15 minutes to get up and running.
Great quality pictures, very impressed.
I now just have to fit them on their brackets tomorrow....
Is this going to best offer available for BF? Was expecting better deal than this!
Just wanted to chime in on the blink, I've had mine for a year and its been solid as a rock, kept signal and I've not had to change the batter once (this is dependent on how often your camera is triggered).
I've just got this deal for some camrea's around the back of my house, thanks OP! Heat!
Anyone after the 2 camera system...buy 2 separate one camera systems...sell one dot and one hub..bargain price of about £110 with a dot.

Just like Arlo the free storage is for "life" also from their website
"How much storage do I get for recorded videos?Blink’s server provides each system storage for up to 7,200 total seconds of video (or 1,440 five-second events). If you reach your storage limit, your oldest alert clips will be overwritten by the newest."
Ok I guess as long as amazon does not go out of business or sell of the blink business the cloud is for life
response back from blink,

Thank you for your email. Blink’s server provides each Sync Module storage for up to 7,200 total seconds of video (or 1,440 five-second events) for as long as you like (no expiration). If you reach your storage limit, it will automatically delete the oldest clip in order to make room for the next one.

You are able to set clips to automatically delete based on a time limit. By default, this is set to 14 days, but you can also change that to 3 days, 7 days, 30 days, and 1 year.

You are also able to manually delete clips at anytime and any important clips can also be saved to your mobile device at anytime by using the share feature on the clip within the clip roll folder of the APP.
Is there anyone relatively smart who can explain why blink keeps triggering on noise (not just visual motion)...isn't it then useless to be used as an internal camera???

Basically I want to install in kitchen and point to garden, but not to be triggered by normal kitchen noises ONLY movement in the garden!!!

Anyone brighter than me who can suss this out?
