Amazon Cloud Cam will be $59.99 (50% off) for Prime Day — Blink cameras will also be on sale

An Amazon representative has informed me that the Amazon Cloud Cam will be on sale for $59.99 during Prime Day next week. That price is 50% off the regular price and will be the new lowest price that Amazon has ever sold their security camera. For comparison, the Cloud Cam was $99.99 during Black Friday last year and reached an all-time low price of $89.99 during a sale in December. It is unknown if Amazon will offer additional discounts for customers who purchase multiple cameras, like they are currently offering. Currently, if you buy two cameras you’ll save an additional $40 and you’ll save an additional $70 if you buy 3 cameras. Amazon usually temporarily suspends multi-unit discounts when they hold major sales like Prime Day, but there have been instances where a sale price and a multi-unit discount have stacked together to provide double discounts in the past, so we’ll have to wait and see. Since Amazon acquired Blink last year, they will also be putting Blink security cameras on sale during Prime Day. The Blink XT 1 Camera System will be on sale for $74.99, which is down from $129.99, and the Blink XT 2 Camera System will be on sale for $139.99, which is down from $229.99. Both of those prices will be significantly lower than those camera systems have ever been in the past.

Amazon adds scheduled on/off to Cloud Cam and increases digital zoom

Amazon has added a couple new features to their Cloud Cam security camera. First spotted by AndroidPolice, the Cloud Cam app (Android | iOS) has been updated with a new option to automatically turn the camera on or off at a set schedule. Amazon’s Cloud Cam has always had the option to set the camera to automatically turn on when you leave the house and turn off when you’re home, but now owners also have the option to use a simple fixed schedule. The other change with this latest update is an increase of the camera’s digital zoom from 4x to 8x to make it easier to spot tiny or distant objects in the camera feed.
