Product Overview

Put your home security worries to bed with this Blink XT2 smart

I think it's slightly cheaper at currys cos of 10% at checkout
I am after a good system. There are so many out there and I think with Blink ones, you don’t need to worry about installing the power sockets as they run on batteries. Is that correct?

I think it might be best to wait until the Black Friday for a better deal. However, need to know which one is an idea system beforehand.

That is correct. You can run a usb cable to it for external power too
I have heard of peoples cameras being nicked as well though. I know they don't work with other systems because they are locked to yours (I think) but I still dunno if I like the idad of how easy it would be to remove one. Yes you can mount them higher up etc but still reckon you could get them nicked.

I guess if it's in the right place then the person will most likely be on the camera but still.

Also how reliable are these as if they drop off the WIFI ya then have no recordings.
I've got the Blink XT2 2-camera system and it is OK, but certainly not perfect. I bought it at the end of August and have had the system completely fail a few times, with either or both cameras not detecting motion or liveview around once a week. It seems to be getting worse, despite not changing a thing, and I've currently got a ticket open with Blink support to find out what I can do. Before I can progress I've got to change the batteries (bear in mind they are supposed to last 2 years and I have had the system 2 1/2 months!) and play about with my WIFI. When it works, it is great, but it just seems to be getting more and more unreliable.

The mounts they come with are awful and I bought third party enclosure mounts to make them a little bit more secure and allow me to get the angles I needed.

Did you get a solution ?
The advice I received was change the batteries and change the name of the WIFI extender to that of the router so both were detected. I had, before I got that response, managed to get the sync to see the WIFI extender (by having it face it a foot in front of it) which meant the WIFI and sync were both halfway between each of the cameras. The WIFI and sync signals were then full and the cameras have both stayed stable and responding since. The conclusion I have come to is that the range of the cameras and the sync module is very limited - my suggestion in the ticket was the sync module was faulty. Whilst it is perfectly fine for what I currently want to do, I doubt I would be able to add another pair of cameras to the same sync module, and am pretty sure I would require another WIFI extender if I went for another separate pair co cameras and sync module.

Whether this is because my house was built just post war and is brick for the outer and inner walls, which reduces WIFI range, I don't know. With modern houses seemingly thrown up, of less dense construction (hardly a brick in sight) and much smaller, this may not be a problem. The third-party mounts are still the best for getting the view angles I need and securing the cameras, but they are a real sod if I have to change the batteries and getting the position correct again.

Now it is working, the BLINK will do all I currently need. If things change, I'll probably go over to a full, multi-camera, CCTV system.
