What is it?
Making the choice to answer the doorbell can be complicated — after all, it could be a nosy neighbor swinging by for a chat when you just don’t have the time. But your doorbell ringing could also signal a loved one is here for a visit or that package you’ve been waiting on has finally arrived. That’s why you need a smart video doorbell. These handy devices let you see what’s on your doorstep, so you can decide if you actually want to answer the door. They can also allow you to keep tabs on what’s happening outside your home for safety reasons. Well, heads up: Just for today Amazon has slashed prices on the popular Blink video doorbell and two outdoor security camera package by 50%. You can snag this deal for both black and white doorbells, giving you options.
Why is it a good deal?
Blink video doorbells are so popular they don’t need to go on sale and this particular package has been full price for most of the year. At 50% off, you can pick one up and use the rest of the money you saved to buy lots of things online…that you can watch arrive on your new smart doorbell.
Why do I need this?
Blink’s video doorbell system delivers plenty of data to you about what’s happening outside your home, ultimately making you more informed and safe.
The doorbell syncs up to an app on your phone, allowing you to answer the door from anywhere. You can see 1080p HD live view and speak through the app to chat with people who have come by, even if you can’t get to the door in time. There’s even infrared night vision for clear visuals after dark.
This video doorbell and camera set has motion detection that alerts you when there’s movement within zones you set. You’ll appreciate the two-year battery life over time, and you can save and share clips in the cloud (enjoy a free 30-day trial before upgrading, if you decide it’s for you).
Blink even connects to your Alexa-enabled device if you don’t feel like using the app in any given moment.
This particular kit features a video doorbell, two outdoor cameras and three mounting kits to get you up and running. Choose from white and black doorbells to match your home’s exterior.
What reviewers say:
Blink has an army of fans — nearly 77,000 — who swear by everything from its crisp visuals to clear audio. One happy customer called the installation process “slick as snot.” They added, “Just put in the batteries, scan the QR code and add them to the system using the Blink app. So far—and it has been about two weeks—nothing has disconnected.”
Another fan also raved about the easy installation. “The whole set-up was a breeze with the Blink app,” they said. “It gives you step by step instructions. I ended up wiring it to my original door bell. So, not only does it ring on my phone it also uses my original bells. The night vision is really good. I love the ability to block out certain zones to prevent false triggers.”
A former ADT user also gives Blink the thumbs up. “I thought I’d give Blink a try and was truly impressed,” they said. “I absolutely love these cameras. The picture quality is great and the app was very easy to navigate.”
This is a limited-time sale. Snag this Blink video doorbell combo at a serious discount while you still can.
