There are dozens of capable home security camera systems out there.

But you don’t need all the bells and whistles — if the system is easy to set up and maintain while also offering peace of mind (and real protection), go with that.

So while Blink XT isn’t the brand’s most recent release, there’s no reason not to take advantage of Woot’s one-day sale on the security set-up. The deals site is offering steep discounts on two- and three-camera kits, as well as add-on cameras for existing Blink customers.

This system has all the basics covered: The cameras are battery operated (they’ll run up to two years on two AAs), weatherproof and you can install ’em in minutes; plus, there’s no monthly subscription fees. And you can pair the cameras with an Amazon Echo for voice support.

Only downside? There might be some “cosmetic” blemishes and the cameras won’t arrive in their original packaging. But they do come with a 90-day warranty.
