We love the Arlo range of home security cameras, but there are two big problems we have with them. First, they’re really expensive. Second you have to deal with the hassle of recharging the batteries every two to three months. If you want something comparable that’s way less expensive and that has battery life that Arlo cameras couldn’t even dream of, today is your lucky day. Amazon is offering discounts on both the Blink Indoor Home Security Camera System and the upgraded weatherproof Blink XT Home Security Camera System. They’re all available at their lowest prices yet, but these deals probably won’t last long.
