How much do you think a home security camera with 1080p HD resolution, infrared HD night vision, motion detection, and two-way audio would set you back? Whatever figure just popped into your head, I can guarantee you it's actually significantly less. That's because Amazon has just rolled out a new compact, indoor security cam called the Blink Mini that retails for just £34.99. Working in tandem with the Blink Home Monitor app, the affordable plug-in camera offers a high-definition live view of your home, and will allow you to chat with whoever's in the house - including your adorable pets - in real-time. It also supports local or cloud video storage via the Blink Sync Module or Blink cloud subscription plan, and can be paired with an Alexa-enabled device. Talk about bells and whistles.
