Amazon has price cuts on Arlo and Blink home security cameras

With Prime Day deals now in full swing, a few incredible discounts have emerged on outdoor security cameras that are just too good to miss. One of the best is on the all-new Blink Outdoor camera. Another can’t-miss deal is the Arlo Essential Spotlight camera.

These deals come alongside a whole host of other home security camera deals, with Ring Video Doorbell discounts leading in price cuts.

Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera — $100, was $130

The Arlo Essential Spotlight camera is $30 off its retail price of $130. This battery-operated, wireless security camera provides users with 1080p, color night vision, and much more. Place it wherever you need coverage around your home or yard.

You will be notified of motion from any source, but the camera can distinguish between vehicles, peoples, and packages. The Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera will run for six months on a single charge and does not require a hub to operate. Color night vision means you can distinguish details even in total darkness, while the onboard spotlight will illuminate any intruders and let them know you are watching.

Blink Outdoor (3-Camera Kit) — $150, was $250

The Blink Outdoor camera is a wireless, battery-operated HD camera that lets you monitor your home all day and night. It is currently just $150, a $100 discount from its normal price of $250. It uses infrared night vision to give you clarity even in the darkest conditions and can run for up to two years on two AA batteries. When the Blink Outdoor camera detects motion, it will notify you via your phone.

You can speak to visitors in real-time thanks to two-way audio. All video clips and photos can be stored either locally (with the help of a Blink Sync Module 2) or in the cloud through the Blink Subscription plan.

At $100 off its standard price, this is a fantastic deal for a three-pack of the most versatile outdoor cameras on the market.

These two home security camera deals aren’t just some of the best savings on security equipment, but some of the best Prime Day smart home deals we’ve seen so far. The deals won’t last beyond Prime Day, and many smart home devices have already begun to sell out. If you’re interested in either one of these devices for yourself, act fast while you still have the chance.

Arlo vs. Blink: Which security camera deal is right for you?

While there is an obvious difference in price between the two cameras, choosing between them requires a closer look at features for the price. Both cameras offer night vision, wireless connectivity, and HD resolution.

So really the main difference in price can be attributed to the differences in cloud storage. Arlo cameras tend to require a subscription to a storage plan that saves video for up to 30 days. Which means if you’re looking for a camera without extra fees attached, the Blink Outdoor camera is a good choice.
