Amazon acquires connected camera, doorbell, and home security company Blink

Amazon has acquired Blink, a startup that makes wire-free connected cameras, smart doorbells, and is working on a new home security system. Blink started with a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $1 million for their indoor security camera that is capable of running for up to 2 years on a pair of AA batteries. They’ve since released an outdoor camera and are about to release a video doorbell and home security system. While Amazon recently released their own security camera, the acquisition of Blink will surely result in more home monitoring products in the future.

    On good! Amazon done did buy their own Nest. Now them and Google can be even more at odds with each other… For joy!

    I think this is good. I love amazon. And I own a blink for home system. Should be good. The tech should get better and cheaper.
