Home security cameras and video doorbells are the most common smart home devices after initial smart speakers or smart displays. Buyers can choose from single or multi-cam Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant-compatible outdoor security camera bundles from many brands. It’s helpful to have a selection of suitable products, and Amazon cut prices on outdoor security cameras from Blink, Ring, Nest, Arlo, and Eufy, five of the best-known brands.
Outdoor security camera bundles with two cameras are the sweet spot for many buyers because, with them, you can monitor two entry doors or one entry and a garage door. Most security camera systems have a base station or hub that connects to your home Wi-Fi network and controls and manages the video and audio from multiple cameras. If you’re looking for a multi-camera smart home security system, these five deals can help you save up to $200.
The Ring Spotlight Cam Battery HD Security Camera 2-pack does not require a system hub. Ring has a wired version of the same camera that doesn’t need recharging batteries. The battery is rated to last up to six months per charge, plus you can install a second, optional battery for twice the operating time. Wireless cameras have the advantage of installation choice because they don’t need to be in reach of a power source — as long as they are within your Wi-Fi signal range.
The Ring Spotlight Cam captures 1080p HD video with a 140-degree horizontal and 78-degree field of view. The camera has motion-activated LED spotlights, an internal siren that you can activate remotely, and two-way audio so you can talk with visitors or delivery people or warn off intruders. You can monitor and control the Spotlight Cam remotely via the Ring app or with an Amazon Alexa smart speaker or display. You can monitor live video remotely with the app and set the system to send alerts when the camera detects movement. With an optional $3 monthly Ring Protect plan, you can view video clips stored in the cloud for up to 60 days.
Ordinarily $398, the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery HD Security Camera 2-pack is $338 during this sale. If you want a self-contained wireless security light and a camera that can also integrate with Amazon Alexa and other Ring devices, this combination security camera and light is an excellent choice.
The Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera 2-cam kit, like the Ring Spotlight Cam above, is a wireless device so you can mount it anywhere within your Wi-Fi network’s reach. The Blink XT2 is rated to run for two years on a replaceable battery and records 1080p HD video with a 110-degree diagonal field of view when it detects motion. The XT2 supports two-way talk, is motion-activated, and can display live video. Free cloud storage allows you to view stored video clips for up to a year. Access via the free Blink Home Monitor or Amazon Alexa. The XT2 does not include a light.

Arlo has five smart home security camera levels, including the Arlo, Arlo Pro, Pro 2, Pro 4, and Arlo Ultra.

The cameras run on rechargeable batteries for up to six months, based on an average of five minutes of daily recording. You can also plug it into AC power.
The camera supports two-way audio and has a 100-decibel siren built into the base station. You can configure the siren to go off only on your remote command via the Arlo app, Alexa, or Google Assistant, or automatically when a connected camera detects motion or sound. The camera records in 1080p HD resolution. You don’t have to pay for a subscription to view stored video clips in the cloud, and the base station can connect to a USB device for local storage or backup.
Usually $480, the Arlo Pro 2 Wireless Home Security Camera System 2-cam kit is reduced to $280 for this sale. If you’re looking for an especially versatile smart security camera 2-cam kit, this is a chance to save a bundle.

The Nest Cam Outdoor also supports two-way talk and can send alerts to your smartphone.
The Nest Cam supports 24/7 continuous recording with cloud storage. Access to stored footage requires a subscription that costs $5 a month for 5-days of video history, $40 a month for 10-day history, and $30 per month for 30-day history.
