Blink Captures Second Consecutive CES Innovation Awards Honoree Recognition
Home security and video monitoring company named a 2017 standout in the Smart Home category for Blink 2.0

BOSTON, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Blink, the ultra-affordable, truly wire-free and battery-powered home security and HD video monitoring system, today announced that it has been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree. The brand won recognition for its Blink 2.0 system, marking the second consecutive CES Innovation Award victory for the brand within the Smart Home category as chosen by an esteemed panel of judges that includes industry designers, engineers and media.

Unveiled earlier this fall, Blink 2.0 takes the brand's signature features – unmatched battery life and ease of use – to the next level. In an effort to further solidify Blink's competitive advantage, the company's world-class engineering team did not simply increase battery life, they doubled it. Blink's revolutionary cameras now run for an industry-leading two years on just two AA lithium batteries, with the ability to record up to 60 seconds and auto-stop recording when motion is no longer detected.

"This award is a testament to Blink's explosive growth and ongoing commitment to product innovation," said Peter Besen, Blink's CEO. "Through customer feedback, we learned that our users wanted to further engage with the system without sacrificing battery life. We accepted this challenge and delivered a solution that offers two years of battery life and longer recording options, giving our customers the best of both worlds while also solidifying our competitive advantage over those who still measure their battery life in months."

Blink upended the smart home security industry last year, taking CES and the consumer tech market by storm with an unbeatable price point ($99), unprecedented battery life, and unmatched ease of installation and use. Blink has continued this momentum as demonstrated by its announcement of two-year battery life and the title of CES Innovation Award Honoree for the second year in a row.

For those looking to meet the team behind the award-winning product, Blink will be at CES Unveiled on January 3 and CES 2017 from January 5 to January 8 at Booth #40136 in the Smart Home section of the Sands, Halls A-D. Systems can be purchased on or directly through
