If you’re looking for the best video doorbell you’re going to love the brand new Video Doorbell from Blink, an Amazon company. Blink helps bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones through affordable, innovative, and easy-to-use smart home security devices – and that means the Blink Video Doorbell delivers all the features you need for just £49.99. That’s a brilliant price for a really clever and useful device.
This is Blink’s first video doorbell, and it shares the same design and DNA as Blink’s other popular and highly rated smart home security products such as the Blink Indoor and Blink Outdoor Camera, which TechRadar’s reviewers praised for their clear video quality, easy setup and affordability. It’s a great way to get into smart home security as well as an excellent addition for existing Blink indoor or outdoor cam owners – and if you have Echo or Fire TV devices, it’s a great way to make them even more useful too.
The video doorbell that works with Alexa
The Blink Video Doorbell is really easy to install and to connect to your existing Alexa devices, and it’s easy to customise too. You can set it up to trigger audio alerts, app notifications and motion alerts, and you can even get it to trigger your existing doorbell chime. And because it’s built to withstand even the worst conditions it’s more than a match for the British weather.
You can connect it to your existing doorbell wiring or you can use it wire-free. If you go for the latter, you can expect to get up to two years of battery life from a single pair of AAs. And because it works with Alexa you can see what it sees on any compatible Echo Show or Fire TV device. You can also use Alexa to control your doorbell via the Blink Smart Home skill, using your Echo or Fire TV to arm and disarm it and to talk to visitors or delivery drivers too.
Smart home security for a smart price
As you’d expect from an Amazon company, Blink’s Video Doorbell offers state of the art technology for much less than you’ll pay elsewhere. You’ll be able to see your visitors any time of day or night thanks to the sharp 1080p HD camera and infra-red night vision, and you get a free trial of the Blink Subscription Plan so you can store, save and even share footage from your video doorbell online.
Your Blink Video Doorbell becomes even more useful when you team it up with the Blink Sync Module 2, which will be available shortly and connects wirelessly to your doorbell and other Blink devices. That enables you to add a USB flash drive and save your video locally without any recurring fees, and it also enables two really useful features: Live View and two-way audio.
With Live View you can see the video from your video doorbell in real-time on any compatible device via the Blink app. You’ll also be able to communicate with visitors thanks to live two-way audio, so you can hear and talk to them and they can hear and talk to you. The Blink Video Doorbell with Blink Sync Module 2 is just £79.98. If you prefer, you can create a wired connection between the camera and your network to enable these features without the Sync Module.
It’s a family affair
The Blink Video Doorbell is a great smart home security product in its own right, and it’s also part of the wider Blink smart home family – so you can add additional devices to your smart home and get the same mix of high quality, Alexa-powered convenience and excellent affordability inside and outside your smart home.
