Video storage and transfer: SanDisk 64GB Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive
To go with your Sync Module 2, you'll need a fast USB flash drive to store your video footage and transfer them over to your PC. This USB 3.0 flash drive comes with encryption and 130 MB/s transfer speeds, so you'll protect your private footage and access it as quickly as possible for a reasonable price.
Easy cable management: Corner Camera Shelf Security Mount
Screwing your Blink Mini into the wall can be a challenge. This shelf has a hole in the back to allow the USB power cord through for a cleaner way to get the cable down to the outlet rather than draping it over the side of the shelf. You can easily attach the shelf to the wall with screws or use the included adhesive strips.
Never change batteries again: Power Adapter Weatherproof Cable 25 ft
This weather-resistant adapter, with a 25-foot cable and adapter, keeps your Blink XT or XT2 plugged in and charged 24/7. It has a good quality fire shell to prevent short-circuiting, and it's thin enough (3.5mm) to run out windows or doors while still allowing them to close fairly well.
Value pack: Aotnex wall mount bracket and sync module outlet (3 pack)
This pack comes with three weather-resistant mounts for your XT and XT2 cameras and a power adapter outlet for the Classic Sync Module. These mounts will keep your cameras up and out of danger while increasing your field of view options. The wall outlet will keep the Classic Sync Module powered 24/7.
The best Blink security accessories
In fall 2021, Amazon announced a host of new products and that included some new accessories for Blink cameras. There is now an official motion-triggered Blink Floodlight and a Blink Solar Panel Mount. Currently, these items are only being sold as a package with a camera along with the accessory. Should these become an item for separate purchase, we'll be sure to update this collection of accessories.
Blink home security cameras are excellent on their own, but to create a functioning Blink system of cameras, the Sync Module 2 is a vital purchase if you don't already own it. With it and a USB drive like the Sandisk 64GB USB 3.0, you can store motion-activated clips locally to your PC from up to ten cameras. If you don't pay for this upfront, you'll have to pay a monthly fee for a cloud subscription plan starting in 2021, which will cost you much more than the hardware in the long run.
We also highly recommend you invest in an official Blink Battery Extender for any Blink Indoor or Blink Outdoor you purchase. In theory, the built-in two-year battery life for these cams works great on its own. Still, most cameras don't live up to the company's lofty promises — especially outdoor cams mounted to observe high-movement areas where they'll detect motion frequently. Double the actual capacity of your cams, and you won't be disappointed.
