Whether you're shopping for your first security camera or you already have a system at home that you'd like to expand on, you'll likely find something worth buying in Amazon's current Blink camera sale. As Lifehacker's smart home expert Amanda Blum mentioned in her review, the Blink Outdoor 4 is an entry-level wireless security camera worth buying, currently on sale for $59.99 after a discount (originally $99.99). After checking the price tracker tool, this is the lowest price I've ever seen for this specific camera, which is why it's my favorite Amazon deal of the day.

Blink Outdoor 4 Wireless Smart Security Camera, 2-year battery life, two-way audio, HD live view, motion detection.

The Blink Outdoor 4 is a cordless camera, which means you'll run on 2 AA lithium batteries, which will last up to two years. The camera is also weatherproof, has motion-activated alarms, a live view mode (for up to five minutes without a Blink subscription plan), shoots in 1080p, has two-way audio, and works well with the Alexa ecosystem. (Unfortunately, it's not compatible with Google or Apple Home Kits.) You'll get the Sync Module 2 with your order, which provides local storage for your videos on a USB stick, meaning you don't need to get Blink if you don't want to subscription. No matter where you set it up, the camera offers a 143-degree diagonal view and optional person detection if you purchase a Blink subscription plan.

Keep in mind that you need to subscribe to Blink to use all its features. Blink subscriptions start at $30 per year for the Blink Basic plan. You can also get the Blink Plus plan, which costs $100 per year and comes with more features, the most important of which is an unlimited number of devices connected to your account.
