We love the Blink Mini because it is so small and compact that it’s hardly noticeable and won’t stick out like a sore thumb against your normal home decor.

Each Blink Mini is $10 off for Prime Day making it only $24.99 USD. Add it to your cart HERE.

Outfitting your home with smart technology isn’t regulated to the inside. Amazon’s Blink security system has an all-new outdoor system.
