Amazon Acquires the Smart Camera and Doorbell Company—Blink
Blink—a smart camera and doorbell startup, has been acquired by Amazon, as per reports published on December 22, 2017, in The Verge.
The company which launched a connected doorbell with a built-in camera, which also operates independent of batteries. It is also working on a full home security system.
Amazon also announced a delivery service that allows a person to walk into someone’s home to deliver a package. This service requires the use of cameras. Although, Amazon already launched one of its own cameras, it bought several more. Smart doorbells are witnessing a hike in demand, due to which the acquisition of a company developing such doorbells would be of great value to Amazon.
The acquisition was just a rumor until Amazon itself confirmed the same in an email to The Verge, stating, “As one of Blink’s distributors, we already know customers love their home security cameras and monitoring systems. We’re excited to welcome their team and invent together on behalf of customers.”
Blink reported that all of its products remain under the Blink brand and are not integrated with services of Amazon, for the time being, which their possible integration with the home delivery system is just speculation for the time being. Blink said, “If you own one of our systems, nothing changes for now,” and that it’ll continue “selling and supporting” the same products.
The camera has a two-year warranty and is powered by a pair of AA batteries, which means you can easily put them around a home without having to worry about wiring. This technology is smart power technology, which allows for optimal utilization of resources in order to enhance power generation.
