Amazon’s Blink Wireless on sale
Amazon has discounted most of its Blink wireless security cameras for Prime Day this year, but one of the best deals is the budget wired version of the camera. You can now buy a two-pack of Blink minis, which is more than half the original price. In addition, you can buy a Blink indoor kit, an Outdoor Kit and a Blink video doorbell.
If you are not sure about choosing the Blink system for your home, trying a Blink Mini is a good start. Not only are they the lowest of the bunch, but they also contain most of the features offered by Standard indoor and outdoor cameras. The biggest disadvantage is that the Minis are wired, so you have to place them indoors and need a power outlet. Otherwise, they behave in the same way as normal Blink cameras, record 1080p video, send motion alerts and support two-way conversations. The Minis also feature infrared night vision for clearer night shots, as well as Alexa support.
For those who already have Blink cameras at home, Prime Day offers the opportunity to pick up a little more at the best possible prices. The indoor and outdoor cameras have all the features of the Blink Mini and are completely wireless. This makes it much easier to place them anywhere in your home, especially if you have the right mounting accessories that can be combined with them. Both versions are powered by AA batteries that last up to two years before needing to be replaced, and the outdoor models are also weatherproof.
Amazon recently expanded the Blink system with a video doorbell, which is essentially a affordable version of a Ring doorbell. Blink has a slimmer profile and can be wired into your doorbell hardware or installed wirelessly. Just like the cameras, the video doorbell records in 1080p, sends you motion alerts and allows you to talk to the people at your door via the two-way audio function.
