Looking for a powerful new security system to protect your home or property this summer? Amazon just dropped a brand new edition of the Blink XT2 system that might just be the option for you.

The updated system has enhanced motion detection, a longer battery life, and better memory to improve the security of your home, and it’s actually quite affordable.

Amazon has quite a few security systems, and all of them are Amazon Alexa-enabled, meaning you can connect it to your Echo or smart device and have a two-way conversation with anyone at your front door, and livestream whatever the camera sees to your phone.

This new camera system has a brand new processor chip inside which means it can store up to 80,000 seconds of video on a single set of the lithium AA batteries, which is double that of the previous model.

That battery also lasts for two years of continual use, which is super helpful and reduces maintenance of other systems.

The biggest upgrade, though, is the enhanced motion detection, which is fully customisable, so you can set up micro-activity zones for the camera to focus on and detect more minute motion and reduce false alarms.
