As new manufacturing processes develop, the ability to craft smaller circuitry becomes reality. Take a look at gadgets such as smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, cameras, and a lot more. Not only are devices upgrading overall processing power, but battery life is likewise improving along the way. Mobile devices are not the only ones that benefit from evolution, smart products, on the other hand, are likewise enjoying the upgrades.

To help illustrate this, let’s take a look at the Blink XT2 smart security camera. Blink Home Security, an Amazon-owned company, claims that its product can function up to two years without replacing the battery. It’s a bold claim considering it will be constantly running to closely monitor your home or office. Powering this versatile device are a pair of AA lithium batteries.

We like to point out that it does not have local storage and relies on your Wi-Fi internet connection. Aside from the caveats, functions such as 2-way audio, free cloud storage, and compatibility with Amazon Alexa far outweigh its flaws. The 110-degree 1080p HD camera clearly captures footage during the day, while the infrared unit handles low-light footage. Additionally, the built-in motion sensor is programmable to prevent false alerts.

The Blink XT2 is built to withstand the elements with its IP65-rated housing, which means that it’s safe to mount outdoor. You can get one for $99.99 or a bundle of up to five units for $379.99. This is ideal for homeowners who are in the process of automating most household functions and security.
