Amazon is known for exquisite deals on its home-brewed gadgets, especially when it comes to bundles that make them even more irresistible. Take, for instance, the Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen), accompanied by essentially a free Blink Mini home security camera. The best part about this is that the bundle deal comes out to $100, a cost that’s actually less than the regular $130 retail price of the Echo Show 8.
Again, we have to point out you’re getting two devices for a price that’s less than buying the Echo Show 8 by itself. The Blink Mini is already an affordable home security camera priced at $35 when purchased separately. Throw in that cost with the regular price of the Echo Show 8; the two together would fetch for $165. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that $65 is a pretty good amount of savings.
Since the two are already bundled, you’re in for a treat because there’s so much you can do with the two. Not only does the Blink Mini make for a decent security camera indoors, perfect for detecting motion when you’re not there, but you can conveniently use the Echo Show 8 to see a live view of the camera instantly. This feature is perfect if you’re working on something and don’t want to be bothered by having to get up and check yourself. Alternatively, you can feasibly use the combo to act as a baby monitor of sorts.
Whatever you end up doing, this is a deal that’s hard to pass up on because of the savings and utility the two offer together.
