Protecting your pad has gotten a lot easier in the last few years. A home security system with cameras on every corner of your property can be set up in a snap — and at a steal! Whether you're concerned about protecting your home from intruders or simply want to keep an eye on the dog, you can take care of business without a lot of effort or cash. Here's one you can't miss out on: Blink Smart Home cameras and doorbells are up to 50% off at Amazon right now.

Here are two of our faves:

Blink app-operated, this camera allows you to watch what's happening right on your phone. Equipped with night vision, the Blink — powered with two long-lasting AA Lithium batteries (included) — is sharp even in the dark.

This camera also comes in bundles of up to five cameras or you can get a single-camera kit. If you are on the fence about it, let the more than 100,000 five-star fans make their case.

"My house was robbed 3 years ago. I did not have cameras and all of the special things I treasured were stolen," shared a rave reviewer. "My son suggested I purchase the same cameras that he uses and I am so happy that I did! I am several states away from my home and last night Blink detected motion in my driveway. I was able to watch a man knock on my side door, walk down my driveway and then come back and leave a note under my car windshield! I was able to call my son who came to my house and got the note! I could speak to my son over the camera and find out what the note said…all from 4 states away!
I can check on my house anytime I want and it brings me such peace of mind to see that all is well. I am amazed that I can even hear the cicadas in the trees outside my home!"

Unlike the cameras you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on, a pair of these is just $30. You'll get Full HD live streaming and two-way audio, so you can talk to house guests via the Blink app. They detect motion too.

Another fan favorite with more than 154,000 five-star reviews, this camera also comes in a three-camera bundle or a single-camera kit.

"I have an elderly family member in a care home and needed some extra peace of mind that she was being cared for properly," shared a five-star fan. "This camera allows me to see what I need to see and also check in with her. I can communicate with her from the talk function, which is wonderful because the cell service is horrible there, so we can communicate perfectly via wifi on the camera. If you have little ones or elderly family members this is a perfect buy."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
