Amazon slashes price of the Kasa Cam Outdoor by $55, bringing it down to $85

TP-Link Kasa review
Terry Walsh/Digital Trends

While wireless security cameras offer a more flexible installation setup, they are prone to interference, signal fade, and hacking. If you don’t want surveillance interruptions getting in the way of your home monitoring, you’re better off with wired options. Right now, Amazon is discounting the Kasa Cam Outdoor by 39%. With this deal, you’ll only be paying $85 instead of the usual $140.

The Kasa Cam Outdoor boasts excellent specifications at a price tag that won’t burn a hole in your wallet. Whether you’re starting to build your home surveillance system or looking to expand your existing security setup, you better not miss out on this deal.

Compact in profile, this security camera can be easily tucked away out of sight. An IP65-weatherproof rating ensures that it’s protected against rain and dust, while a magnetic camera mount and wall plate allow for easy installation and angle configuration.

The Kasa Cam may not be as convenient or versatile as the battery-operated Arlo Pro or Nest Cam IQ, but its impressive imaging capabilities make up for it. For starters, it has a night vision that can take clear images with good contrast for up to 30 feet. It also has a 130-degree field of view for the maximum area coverage. To save on battery, resolution is set to 720p by default but it can be easily switched to 1080p.

When the camera detects sound and motion, it can send notifications to your smartphone within seconds. Detection is sensitive, but you may opt to create up to four custom activity zones to reduce potential false alerts. You can also use the two-way audio to speak and listen in, as well as activate the siren to scare off thieves. All these functions can be easily set up through the Kasa smart app. If you want to view a live or recorded video, you can do so through the app or by connecting the camera to an Alexa or Google Assistant-supported display device.

With strong specifications, attractive hardware, and solid pricing under its belt, the Kasa Cam Outdoor (KC200) makes an attractive pick for home surveillance. Improve your property’s protection by ordering yours today on Amazon at a discounted price of $85.

Xbox Series S and Series X just had their prices slashed at this retailer
Xbox Series X and S system.

We've found an unlikely source of Xbox Series S deals and Xbox Series X deals, if you're planning to buy one of Microsoft's current-generation consoles. Dell has slashed the price of the Xbox Series S by $60, so it's down to $240 from $300, while the Xbox Series X is discounted by $50 for a lowered price of $450 from $500. We're not sure how much time is remaining on these savings, so if you want to get either console for cheaper than usual, it's highly recommended that you proceed with the purchase as soon as possible. If you keep delaying the transaction, there's a chance that you miss out.
Microsoft Xbox Series S -- $240, was $300

The Microsoft Xbox Series S is the cheaper version among the two consoles, primarily because it goes fully digital as there's no disc drive. You'll instead be downloading your games from the Xbox Store, or through your subscription to Xbox Game Pass. You'll still be able to play the best Xbox Series X games on the Xbox Series S, whether they're multi-platform hits or the best Xbox Series X exclusives. If you prefer going digital with your games anyway, and you like the titles that you can access through Xbox Game Pass, the Xbox Series S may be more than enough for you, and it's going to let you save some cash compared to buying the Xbox Series X.

Hurry! This DJI drone just had its price slashed to $300
The DJI Mini 2 SE drone in flight.

Getting a dependable drone made by arguably the most popular brand in the industry doesn't have to set you back hundreds of dollars, as there's an option to shop Best Buy's offer for the DJI Mini 2 SE. From the drone's already relatively affordable sticker price of $340, it's down to an even cheaper $300 following a $40 discount. We're not sure how much time is remaining on this bargain because DJI's products almost always get sold out quickly whenever they appear in drone deals, so you better hurry with your purchase if you're interested.

Why you should buy the DJI Mini 2 SE
The DJI Mini 2 SE, which was released in February 2023, is a less expensive variant of the DJI Mini 2, which was rolled out in November 2020. The two drones are very similar, but the huge gap in their prices is due to a downgrade in the camera. From the DJI Mini 2's capability to record 4K video at 30 frames per second, the DJI Mini 2 SE is only capable of taking 2K video at 40 frames per second. If 2K quality is more than enough for you, then the DJI Mini 2 SE is recommended because it's a much cheaper drone with most of the same features.
