You may not have to pay a lot to increase the security of your smart home. Amazon sells Blink devices including a video doorbell and sync module for up to 43% off. for $60 (usually $85) — this is almost the lowest ever. Only $40 If you already have sync hardware. Most camera kits are also for sale. for $70 (Usually $100) Blink Outdoor for weather.
Blink is virtually budget-matching to Amazon’s Ring brand, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You get a lot of features for a low price. The video doorbell supports both wired and wireless connections, offers two-way audio, captures infrared video at night, and clips locally (USB drive) or in the cloud with a subscription plan. It also connects to Alexa devices, so it might be the ideal doorbell if you have an Echo Show.
Meanwhile, the Blink Indoor and Outdoor models continue to be our top picks for wireless security cameras. You get the same flexibility as a doorbell, including a 2-year peak battery life. Again, to get the most out of these products, you need to invest in the Alexa ecosystem. But if you can accept that, you may not have much to complain about.
