Amazon acquired Blink at the end of last year, a manufacturer of affordable, easy to use and powered AA battery-powered security cameras. According to a new Reuters report, the acquisition would have cost Amazon about $ 90 million, although the terms of the deal have not been disclosed by Amazon and that it has not been released. 39 provided no comment on the details.
The acquisition of Blink is something that could help Amazon further develop its connected home strategy, which includes its Cloud Cam and Amazon Key program to allow deliveries to their homes during their absence. However, it is unclear how the two product lines will integrate.
Blink's cameras are still available on Amazon, and the company planned a video doorbell for broadcast in 2018, powered in the same way by standard batteries.
