Amazon expanded its security camera lineup with the new Blink Outdoor 4. The latest generation offers indoor and outdoor use, a wider field of view, improved image quality and low light capabilities, as well as enhanced motion detection.
The Blink Outdoor 4 looks like a significant upgrade from past iterations of the camera. In a release, Blink Chief Operating Officer Mike Harris said the new camera is the company’s most versatile yet.
There are dozens of security cameras to choose from, so more customization capabilities can give a device an extra edge with the competition. The Blink Outdoor 4’s indoor and outdoor versatility already has a leg up on the last generation of Blink cameras, which sold indoor and outdoor cameras separately.
The new device boasts a two-year battery life and supports person detection with a Blink subscription, which starts at $3 a month. The Blink Outdoor 4 is powered by the company’s custom third-generation silicon, which supports advanced motion detection for users to catch events earlier and reduce false alerts.
The Blink Outdoor 4 is Alexa-compatible, so users can monitor and control the camera on the go, view multiple cameras simultaneously, adjust privacy settings and zones, receive and customize alerts, as well as activate two-way talk.
The Blink Outdoor 4 starts at $120 for one camera, a Sync Module 2, two AA lithium batteries, a mounting kit, a USB cable and power adapter. Customers can tack on a Mini camera with a purchase of up to four camera systems for an extra $25.
