Amazon’s indoor, outdoor Blink cameras can work for 4 years on one set of batteries
The new Blink cameras are also Alexa compatible and come with 1080p video, night vision, motion detection etc.
Amazon had acquired smart camera company Blink a while ago and have now announced two new cameras. These two new offerings also helps Amazon push its business into a subscription model. One of the main features of the Blink cameras is that they can last up to four years on normal use on a single set of batteries.
The Blink Outdoor camera is priced at $99.99 ( ₹7,318 approx) and the Indoor one comes for $79.99 ( ₹5,854 approx) and includes a free trial to Blink’s cloud storage plan. Once the free plan is over you have to pay $3 ( ₹219 approx) per month to keep the cloud storage going. There is an unlimited plan too which is going to set you back by $10 ( ₹731 approx) per month.
Customers have an option to save their recording locally with the Sync Module 2 that comes included in the box and any USB flash drive.
Both the Blink cameras come with basic home camera features like 1080p video, night vision, motion detection, two-way audio etc. The cameras are Alexa compatible too.
The cameras can last for up to two years in a pair of AA lithium batteries and later this year Blink is going to release a battery expansion pack that will up the number of AA batteries to four. This doubles the camera stamina to four years in normal use. The expansion pack costs $30 ( ₹2,195 approx).
