Amazon's own hardware is always discounted in the best Black Friday deals, and this year is no exception. There are some really good deals on its Blink security cameras: the Blink Mini indoor camera is down to just £29.99 while the rugged Blink Outdoor HD security camera is down to just £49.99. The cost of creating a multi-camera smart home security system just dropped dramatically.
In our Blink Mini review we said that it "could be the best budget security camera out there … it's a very appealing package overall – two-way audio, night vision and motion zone customisation all add up to a home security camera that won't disappoint you."
Meanwhile, the Blink Outdoor camera is a really easy way to set up home security – thanks to a weatherproof build and two-year battery life, you can install and then just not worry about it for ages. It's a great-value way to secure your home inside and out.
I've reviewed Blink cameras, and they integrate really well with Alexa and are very straightforward to use. If I were starting a smart security system from scratch, these are the cameras I'd buy.

The Blink Mini is a brilliant little camera with motion detection, Alexa and good quality 1080p HD video. It also has two-way audio so you can frighten your pets when you're away, and you can create custom motion detection zones to eliminate false alarms.
