Need to upgrade your home security system? Ring and Blink security cameras are currently on sale at select retailers.
If you act fast, you’ll save up to 55% off security cameras at retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart. The limited deal applies to the Blink 2 Outdoor Camera (3rd generation), the newest Ring camera and other cameras.
The Blink 2 — Outdoor 3rd Generation camera is on sale at Best Buy for $79.99 (reg. $179.99). The flash deal ends at midnight on Tuesday (Jan. 26), which means you still have a few hours left to score half off two cameras.
Amazon introduced a fourth generation Blink Outdoor camera ($199) last year. The wireless, battery-powered HD security camera features infrared night vision and can be used outdoors for up to two years before the AA battery needs to be replaced.
It features upgrades in motion detection, enhanced lowlight detection and a broader field-of-view. The device is powered by Blink’s custom-designed, third-generation silicon offering advanced, dual-zone motion detection that provides broader coverage so customers can catch events earlier, and the battery lasts for up to two years like other Blink cameras. The camera has HD live view, two-way audio and works with Alexa, like other Blink cameras.
The Blink Sync Module (sold separately) is required to use your new Blink camera. And don’t forget about the Blink Subscription Plan — it lets you save and share videos for up to 60 days.
A subscription to Blink Cloud includes unlimited cloud video recording, up to two months of video history and person-to-person detection; plus, you can instantly watch videos as soon as they’re recorded and save and share clips. You can also customize what alerts you receive and from where on your property, along with the ability to save and share clips in the cloud. Plans start at $3 per month, or $30 for the year.
Also in stock, the first generation Blink Mini outdoor camera is just $35 (20% off with trade-in). The camera records 1080 HD video, has night vision, motion detection, two-way audio and works with Alexa.
If you prefer Ring cameras, consider the second-generation Ring camera (also released last year). The camera records 1080p HD video and comes equipped with night vision, motion detection and live view with two-way talk technology.
