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.
