These two cameras are at their lowest price since Black Friday 2021, and Amazon threw in a free Blink Mini, which usually retails at $34) into the bundle as well. Collectively, it's a good deal, the best deal on these cameras so far.

One cool feature of these cameras is that you can see what's happening at any time with the Blink Home Monitor app. The app has two-way audio so that you can hear what's going on and talk back. Even when you aren't home, you can monitor security.

If you subscribe to the Blink plan, you can record, view, and save video clips in the app. Subscription fees are low, at just $3 per camera or $10 per month for unlimited cameras at one location.
