Blink is best known for its wireless security cameras which originally launched on Kickstarter before quickly receiving over $1 million in funding.
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.
"If you own one of our systems, nothing changes for now", the statement read. "We'll continue to operate under the Amazon umbrella", Blink said in a blog post. 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. Unlike rival systems that require a wired power connection, or the few battery-powered cameras already on the market which generally had relatively short battery life, Blink's promised more than a year of home monitoring from a single charge. Blink had raised almost $30 million in funding, most recently $3 million in convertible debt this past February, according to VC-research firm PitchBook. "We're excited to welcome their team and invent together on behalf of customers". The company's plan is to also release a full home security system at some point in the near future.
