Get this Blink + Echo Dot Deal

Update

Amazon is now also offering a free Echo Dot (3rd Gen) with the purchase of any Blink Indoor Camera System or Blink XT Outdoor Camera System. All kits are on sale at their Black Friday prices, starting at just $66.99. Just add the kit you want and an Echo Dot to your cart, and the Echo Dot will be free at checkout.

Best Buy currently has the Blink XT Security Camera w/ Echo Dot 3 Bundle on sale for $78.99. This is the exact same price that Amazon was selling the camera alone during Black Friday, so you’re essentially getting the camera for a great price already and a free Echo Dot 3rd Gen included. For those of you who already have a Blink camera system, you can instead get a Blink Add-on Camera w/ Echo Dot 3 for $71.99. This is Blink’s higher end camera that is weather proof and can be placed outdoors. It is completely wireless, since it runs for 2 years on a pair of AA lithium batteries. It achieves its stellar battery life by remaining in a low-power mode until the built-in motion sensor detects movement, at which point it powers up within a second and begins recording. Since Amazon now owns Blink, these cameras work with Alexa, so you can bring up their live feed on Fire TVs and Echo Shows. Also available is the Blink XT 3 Camera Kit w/ Echo Dot 3 for $191.99. In all cases, the Free Echo Dot will automatically be added at checkout.

Get these Blink Camera Deals

Amazon just kicked off their Black Friday sale for Blink XT Security Cameras this morning. These are the weatherproof outdoor cameras that are completely wire-free and run for 2 years on a pair of (included) batteries. They achieve this by remaining in a low-power state until their motion sensors detect movement and begin recording instantly. There’s no monthly subscription fee with these cameras and you get free cloud storage. The Blink XT 1 Camera System is $78.99 and the Blink XT 2 Camera System is $149.99. These prices are $4 and $10, respectively, higher than they were during Prime Day, but they’re still a great deal. Where you’ll really start saving is with the 3 and 5 camera kits. The Blink XT 3 Camera System is $229.99 and the Blink XT 5 Camera System is $349.99. These are both the new lowest price that they have ever been. These kits come with everything you’ll need to start monitoring your property in minutes and they’re Alexa compatible, so you can pull up the camera feed by voice on your Fire TV or Echo Show. If you don’t plan to use them outdoors, the regular Blink Cameras are also on sale, starting at $66.99. Those are about 15-30% less expensive than these beefed up outdoor versions.

Get this Blink Camera Deal

Amazon’s Black Friday sale on Blink Indoor Security Camera Systems has just gone live. Each system includes the necessary hub and a number of cameras.

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 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.
