Amazon Father’s Day sale: Blink and Ring security camera systems get price cuts

Father’s Day is just around the corner and Amazon is slashing prices on Echo, Ring, Blink, and Fire TV devices for the occasion. Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for, but more often than not, a practical piece of technology can make a great gift for any discerning family man. With discounts on so many Amazon devices going on now, it’s the perfect time to pick up a present for your father before Sunday, June 16.

Security cameras and alarm systems, in particular, are a great way to give dad a little extra peace of mind around the home. Ring security kits are getting some of the best discounts from Amazon right now, but you can also pick up the more affordable Blink home system for just $64. We’ve also found some pretty great deals on 4K TVs for Father’s Day if that’s more your dad’s style.

Blink Indoor Home Security Camera Kit— $64

If you’re not to keep your home security simple, this indoor kit is a great option. With Amazon Alexa compatibility, it will work great with an existing smart home setup — though you don’t need an Echo to use it. It comes with a built-in motion detector, allowing for smartphone notifications to be sent to you via WiFi. This connectivity also allows you to easily control your camera from pretty much anywhere with a decent internet connection. Additionally, Blink offers free cloud storage, so you won’t need to pay monthly fees to store videos.

Normally priced at $80, this Blink security kit has been discounted to a nice $64 for a limited time. This 20% discount can also be applied to the 2-camera and 3-camera systems.

Ring Video Doorbell 2— $159
