Home security has come a long way. These days, you can place cameras all over your home — inside and out — for a bargain. Whether you’re concerned about protecting your property from intruders or just want to keep an eye on the dog, you can run your business without much fuss.
And if you have Amazon Prime, of course you get free shipping. not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your 30 day free trial here. (And by the way, the ones without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Here’s the low point:
Unlike the cameras that you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on, this Blink Indoor Mini is only $25 for Prime members only. It features Full HD live streaming and two-way audio, so you can talk to house guests through the Blink app. It also detects motion and records when it senses activity in your home.
“This is a great little camera monitor”, noted one delighted five star reviewer. “It’s easy to set up, easy to manage with your smartphone, with a clear view and motion detection… I bought this to use in my master bedroom next to my desk, where I keep sensitive information.”

On sale for $70 (was $100), the Flashing outdoor camera detects motion and starts recording as soon as it detects activity. The Blink app lets you see what’s happening on your phone. Equipped with night vision, the Flashing outdoor camera — powered by two long-lasting AA lithium batteries (included) — is sharp even in the dark.
“The clarity of video and audio is excellent and the cameras capture everything”, a happy Amazon shopper shared. “Detection is almost instantaneous… I am so impressed with the cameras that I ordered two more to expand the cameras I already have installed. Installation and setup was a breeze… Video daylight shooting is high definition and night vision is extremely clear…”
The Flashing outdoor camera stores video and audio via microSD card so you don’t have to worry about losing it. And with the two-walk talk function — with built-in microphone — you can confront intruders or unwanted guests at a distance.
The Flashing outdoor camera is weatherproof, so feel free to use the camera wherever you need it.

Both Blink smart home cameras work with Alexa and come with a 30-day free trial of Blink cloud storage. If you like, you can sync them with Echo and Fire TV devices to watch the live feed on your big screen TV. Cool!
