Another month, another new name for Amazon's daily deals. Now the section that used to be just the Daily Deals page is called "Early Black Friday deals," and luckily for us there are some great early deals in there. For example, you can get a Blink outdoor wireless security 2-camera kit (opens in new tab) on sale for $99.99. That's an $80 discount off the usual price of this 2-camera kit and the first time it has ever gone this low. Last year's Black Friday was the first time this kit had actually ever gone on sale at all, and even then it only dropped to $110. This is a new low, and it's definitely as low as this kit is going to get. Grab it while you can.
If you want to put together your own home security system, this is a good place to start. The Blink cameras are great because you can pick up this 2-camera kit and then add on more when you find more places that need an extra set of eyes.
Right now only the 2-camera kit is on sale. The other kit bundles might go on sale as we get closer to Black Friday, but this is a great place to start. For one thing, as far as security systems go the Blink cameras are very modular. You can stick with the two you have or add more later. If the three or four camera kits go on sale, pick those up, too. It'll all work together.
These are outdoor cameras that can operate completely wirelessly. That means you can set them anywhere you need them and let them go do their thing without much interference from you. They can survive independently for up to two years on a pair of AA lithium batteries. Plus, they are designed to resist rain and other precipitation so they can survive outside.
Other features include infrared night vision for capturing clear video at night, motion detection that can send alerts to your smartphone, customizable motion zones so you don't get false alerts, and two-way audio so you can hear what's going on and communicate with visitors. The cameras also work with Amazon Alexa so you can monitor your home through your smart displays.
If you want to save video and photos to the cloud, you can get the Blink Subscription Plan. Otherwise, save stuff locally on the Blink Sync Module included with this kit.
