Amazon buys smart camera and doorbell startup Blink

Home security company "Blink" was founded in 2014, and now sells a small connected security camera and a connected doorbell.

Blink announced on its website Friday it was being acquired by the Seattle e-commerce giant. The deal was announced today, and for the moment will see Blink continue to operate as-is, with no changes to the company's line-up. As of writing, Amazon hasn't issued a press release on the matter.

Though the financial terms of this acquisition wasn't revealed.

"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", the announcement read.

The security Camera's of Blink was first introduced back in 2016, and is well known for their ease of set-up and no requirement of a plug because they can well operate on batteries.




"As one of their distributors, we already know customers love their home security cameras and monitoring systems".

As with any new technology, the key question is whether people will accept it. Blink has obviously tried to brand its wireless security cameras as friendly and comforting, rather than another intrusion into our private lives. "If you own one of our systems, nothing changes for now", Blink said in a statement.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been launching smart devices like insane this year, including and all-new Echo speaker, the Echo Spot alarm clock, and the premium Echo Plus speaker.

Amazon unveiled its own Cloud Cam security camera in the fall. "We're excited to welcome their team and invent together on behalf of customers".
