This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

 Amazon Prime Day is here, and if you’re raring to bag yourself a deal on a security camera there are lots of options available. We’ve got all of the best Prime Day deals covered elsewhere, but we’re here to talk exclusively on home security cameras. There are some great savings to be had on products from ArloRing and Blink — we especially like the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera for $200.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for right now be sure to check back — we’ll be updating the deals as Prime Day goes on.

The Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera, which retails for $130, is $30 off for Prime Day. At $100, The Essential Spotlight Camera has HD live streaming, alerts, a built-in siren and spotlight — and optional advanced features with the Arlo Smart cloud subscription plan.

Amazon also has a deal on an Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera multi-pack for Prime Day — $300 for three cameras (save $50)

Arlo

The battery-powered Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is an excellent outdoor light fixture-security camera hybrid. Typically retailing for $250, it’s $50 for Prime Day. Like the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera, the Pro 3 Floodlight has HD live streaming, motion alerts, a built-in light fixture and siren — and more if you subscribe to the optional Arlo Smart service.

Amazon

The Blink Mini is on sale for $25 when ordered via the Amazon app or site, but if you have an Alexa-equipped device, use your voice to order it for just $15. (“Alexa, order a Blink Mini indoor camera.”)

That would put the camera below the CNET-favorite Wyze Cam ($20 plus shipping). Both models work quite well, though the latter includes free cloud storage, which the Blink doesn’t.

However, you get a free Blink cloud-storage trial through the end of 2020, and the forthcoming Blink Sync Module 2 will afford you subscription-free local storage for just $35.

Another great option: Get the Blink Mini bundled with an Echo Show 5 for just $50. These two have a combined retail value of $125!

Ring

Save $10 when you buy a Ring Video Doorbell 3 bundled with an Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker. They would normally cost $250, but you can snag both devices for $240. We reviewed the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, but the Video Doorbell 3 has a lot of the same features (minus the 3 Plus’s Pre-Roll option).

A Ring Video Doorbell runs for $200, and the Echo Show 5 smart display goes for $90. But on Prime Day, Amazon will offer them as a package for $150. If you’re looking to jump-start a smart home around a video doorbell, this deal is one of the best you’ll find.

Ring

Get a Ring Stick Up Cam Battery with an Echo Dot for $140, $10 off the regular price. The Ring Stick Up Cam Battery is a battery-powered outdoor camera by Amazon smart home company Ring. Like Ring doorbells, the Stick Up Cam Battery has live streaming, alerts and cloud storage if you pay for Ring’s monthly cloud subscription service. The Echo Dot is Amazon’s pint-size Alexa smart speaker.

Ring

The Ring Stick Up Cam, typically costs $100, but it will be on sale for $80 soon for Prime Day. Ring’s Stick Up Cam is similar to the Amazon company’s smart doorbells. It has live streaming, motion alerts and optional cloud storage via the Ring Protect cloud subscription service.
