[Amazon.ca] 2 Blink outdoor + echo show 5 - $159.99

I think this is a pretty good deal for that combo. If I didn't already have the cameras I would buy it for sure.

And even with sync module 2, the local files are not stored in real time -- they are copied to the local usb drive as a daily backup. So most users will need to buy an annual subscription.

damn that sucks! my indoor blink takes around 10secs to notify my phone when it senses motion detected, seems pretty long time?

Guys... Am I reading it correctly? I have Blink XT2 which provides 2gb of cloud record for free. Looks like this is "Blink Outdoor" latest model you must pay $5/month after Dec 31 2020.

Check this chart :
"Free cloud storage (no matter purchase date).........................................."

Thanks.

from https://support.blinkforhome.com/blink-storage-options

With your purchase of Blink Outdoor, Indoor, or Mini, a Blink account created after April 15, 2020 receive a free trial of Subscription-based cloud storage for the rest of 2020.

The Sync Module 2 accepts a USB powered drive for storage.

Accounts created before April 15, 2020 will continue to enjoy their existing cloud storage benefit without requiring Subscription, but some newer features are only Subscription-based.

You can still use the Blink Outdoor with your current XT2 system. No sub required.

That makes this a hot deal for anyone that has a XT2 system since you'll never find an Echo Show 5 for less than $49.99.

Why the downvotes? Isnt this still a good deal?

What am I missing if I don't have the Blink Sync Module 2? I would most likely purchase the unit in the future, but want to know what it is the module does.

The Sync Module 2 accepts a USB flash drive for storage of recorded video.

"Back up video clips from up to 10 cameras to the Blink Sync Module 2 in your home and view them on your computer with no additional fees. Up to 256GB USB flash drive required (sold separately)."
