Blink cameras are one of the most well-known security cameras in the market, and right now, Best Buy is selling two third-generation Blink Outdoor security cameras for $71.99 (originally $179.99), which is less than what one usually costs. The deal is part of Best Buy’s three-day sale, which ends Sunday, Jan. 7.
The Blink Outdoor camera is Amazon’s staple camera, with the latest fourth-generation Blink Outdoor coming out in late 2023. The Blink Outdoor camera is one of the best and most affordable security cameras. If two is not the right number for you, you can also take advantage of these other options:
The outdoor is weather resistant and gives you a 1920 x 1080 video resolution with a 110-degree field of view. It is battery-powered, so installation is easy, and the battery lasts up to two years before needing to be replaced. Being an Amazon product, it works with Alexa and not with Google or HomeKit. It is Cloud storage, so there are no SD cards. It records at 30 frames per second and has night mode. You can read the full “excellent” review from PCMag here.
A subscription is optional if you want more than motion-activated notifications and more than five minutes of live-view streaming in a single camera. If so, you have two options for a Blink subscription plan: The Blink Basic Plan is $30 per year, and the Blink Plus Plan runs you $100 a year with more features, the most important of which is having an unlimited number of devices hooked up to your account. The cameras do come with the Sync Module, which connects Blink cameras to the Cloud servers, allowing you to store video locally, manually record, share live video footage (but no live view recording), and control up to 10 Blink devices with the Blink Home Monitor app.
