Amazon’s new cameras, called Blink Indoor and Blink Outdoor, boast a sleek design and offer 1080p HD video, infrared night vision, motion detection and two-way audio
Amazon has announced two new home security cameras that run on two AA batteries for a whopping two years.
The cameras, called Blink Indoor and Blink Outdoor, boast a sleek design and offer 1080p HD video, infrared night vision, motion detection and two-way audio.
Users can control the cameras via a smartphone app, on which they can see a live view of their home, receive motion detection alerts, and use two-way audio.
Eric Saarnio, Vice President of Amazon Devices EU, said: “For Blink, providing peace-of-mind and exciting new products to our customers is everything.
“While Blink’s Outdoor and Indoor cameras include many of the innovative features our customers have come to love and expect – like a powerful two-year battery life – we now offer more options and customisations than ever.
“From new features like privacy zones to an exciting new battery expansion pack that provides up to two additional years of battery power, we’re excited to deliver our new flagship cameras to our customers.”
While the cameras can run for two years on 2 AA batteries, Amazon also offers a £29.99 battery expansion pack which can fit four AA batteries, and extends the battery life to four years.
The cameras are also Alexa compatible, allowing you to arm and disarm the cameras or watch recorded clips simply by asking Amazon’s smart assistant.
Blink Indoor is available for pre-order today at £79.99, while the Blink Outdoor can be pre-ordered at £99.99.
Amazon offers a cloud storage option costing from £2.50/month, or a local storage option, with no monthly fees.
