Blink Video Doorbell — $40, was $50

The Blink video doorbell expands Blinks line of smart home devices.

Blink, an Amazon-owned company, specializes in indoor and outdoor cameras, and it joined the video doorbell space with the Blink Video Doorbell. Once installed, either wireless with lithium batteries or wired with an existing doorbell setup, you can access its 1080p HD camera with infrared night vision and two-way audio to see and converse with whoever is outside your door. You’ll get alerts on your smartphone when the video doorbell detects motion and when someone presses the button, and you’ll also receive a 30-day free trial to the Blink Subscription Plan, which offers benefits such as unlimited storage for live recordings.

If your partner is always worried about home security, the Blink Video Doorbell will grant peace of mind. It’s currently available from Amazon for just $40, after a $10 discount to its original price of $50.

After you purchase the smart home device, you will receive an email with details on the rebates that you may take advantage of from your area’s energy providers. In addition, the smart thermostat works with Amazon’s Alexa to automatically update your home’s temperature to keep you comfortable, though you also have the option of setting the temperature yourself from anywhere through the Alexa app.

For those who value thrift, the Amazon Smart Thermostat is a godsend as it will help save energy and money. You can purchase this smart home device from Amazon at $12 off, which lowers its price to just $48 from its original price of $60.

A woman checks the time on the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential.

If you weren't born before the 2000s, you may not be familiar with the traditional alarm clock that sits next to your bedside, especially since all the same functions can be found on a mobile these days anyway. Of course, for a lot of folks, they want to get away from over-reliance on a phone and opening it first thing in the morning, which is where the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential comes in. It acts like a traditional alarm clock but with a few added features to get the most out of it. Not only that, but it's going for an incredibly low $12 at Walmart, rather than the usual $50 you'd find it for, and even better, that's lower than the $15 it was going for last week!
