Amazon is upping their home security game with the Blink Mini. The plug-in smart security camera can be set up in any room and can be activated on command. All you have to say is “Alexa, show me the kitchen camera” and it will relay you a live 1080p look into that room.
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. If you’re worried about home security or even want to have eyes in each room if you have kids or pets, then this is a perfect little solution. 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. The cameras are waterproof, wireless, and have a long-lasting battery life of up to two years. The cameras send an HD feed right to your Blink app and can also be controlled by your Alexa. Their one camera kit is $35 off for only 649.99 USD but you can also buy additional cameras or 2, 3, and 5 camera kits. Add the Blink Outdoor to your cart HERE.
The Amazon Smart Plug might be one of the biggest bangs for your buck. For only $24.99 USD on Prime Day these Smart Plugs are voice-activated through your Alexa and allow you to control everything from lights to appliances. The plugs also connect with your mobile Alexa app so you can create schedules or activate an outlet when you’re away. The best part is they’re small and sleek just like a regular outlet so you don’t have to worry about them ruining your home decor. Add them to your cart HERE.
