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.
