What to Expect from Your Blink Camera

Blink helps bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones through affordable, innovative, and easy-to-use smart home security devices. From our trusted security cameras to our Video Doorbell,  Blink helps you protect what matters most no matter where you are.  Armed with two-way audio, HD video, customizable motion detection, and more. Blink smart security devices allow you to see, hear, and speak from the free Blink Home Monitor app on your smartphone. Plus, they work with select Alexa-enabled devices! Other features include:

Blink cameras can monitor areas inside or outside your property up to 20 feet, and send motion alerts viewable from a smartphone or tablet. They can also provide live views with two way audio communication (Blink Wired Floodlight, Indoor and Outdoor (3rd Gen), XT2 & Mini cameras). 

Battery-powered Blink cameras offer greater flexibility of placement. These cameras are not meant to provide CCTV feeds or serve as baby monitors; however, if you need to monitor motion or view live video at intervals, Blink cameras are right for the job!

Additional information about Blink devices are accessible in our Using Your Blink System and FAQ pages.


Extended Live View

Blink Subscription Plans enable many premium features including Extended Live View - exclusively for Blink Wired Floodlight and Mini cameras! This feature provides images and sound directly from a camera to the Blink app, up to 90 minutes at a time without user intervention. In addition, you can view regular Live View sessions up to five minutes without tapping Continue.

Extended Live View is not compatible with Alexa and only functions within the Blink app. When using your Blink Wired Floodlight or Mini camera without a Blink Subscription Plan, you must tap Continue every 60 seconds in Live View and your total session length is limited to five minutes.
