Blink announces new video doorbell coming for only $99

Blink Camera

Spotlighting its rising ambitions in Internet-connected home devices, Amazon has obtained the start-up of wireless security camera Blink. The e-commerce giant just bought a company called Blink that makes a popular wireless security camera.

With Blink, Amazon looks to become more competitive in a consumer market that's seeing a nexus with enterprise IoT products through cloud-based artificial intelligence backends. As of writing, Amazon hasn't issued a press release on the matter.

India sweeps Sri Lanka T20 series, with four balls to spare
MS Dhoni (16*) and Dinesh Karthik (18*) remained unbeaten till the end to clinch the match and the series 3-0. England posted the highest of 230 for eight wickets when chasing South Africa's 229 in the same tournament.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. "If you own one of our systems, nothing changes for now", Blink said in a statement.

Assumedly, Amazon will use Blink's cameras in conjunction with its Key service for Amazon Prime members, which allows deliveries within people's homes when they aren't there.

Twitter reacts to Kobe Bryant leaving own jersey retirement game early
Bryant apparently had a good reason for bolting before the game ended. "I kind of go back and forth", Bryant said with a sly grin. I looked up to that man as a player for so long and he's such a talent, but an even better competitor.

Blink products are already compatible with Amazon's Echo home assistant, which runs the Alexa voice service powered by Lex, an AWS-hosted deep learning engine for enabling natural language functions. Blink could keep selling products under its own name, or we could see its tech migrated into Amazon-branded hardware. For that price you get two-way audio, motion detection, night vision, unspecified "HD video", smartphone video alerts, and that long, two-year lifespan off a pair of AAs, just as you'd expect from Blink. It's Day 1 for us at Amazon, and we're looking forward to seeing what we can deliver to our customers together. Since launching in early 2016, we've been thrilled by your response to our ultra-affordable, truly wire-free video home security cameras and monitoring systems.
