On Friday, smart home start-up Blink said it agreed to be acquired by Amazon.

The bulletin covers Midland, Bay, Huron, Saginaw, Tuscola, Sanilac, Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, and St. The Genesee County 911 consortium page reports only a few vehicle crashes as well.

Blink also has significantly cheaper prices for its cameras compared to its competitors, and even the ones Amazon's made.

Blink's Doorbells run on two AA lithium batteries that last the cameras up to two years before they're needed to be replaced. The e-Commerce giant has looked into ways of leaving packages in trunks of vehicles and having Amazon deliverers access customers' homes and leave the package inside. The indoor camera and doorbell both start at $99, while the outdoor monitoring system is available from $129. "We'll continue to operate under the Amazon umbrella selling and supporting the same great products you know and love". "We're excited to welcome their team and invent together on behalf of customers". That started with the Amazon Cloud Cam, a streaming video camera that requires mains power, and which is an instrumental part of Amazon Key, its home delivery service. "It's Day 1 for us at Amazon, and we're looking forward to seeing what we can deliver to our customers together", reads the press release from Blink.

Longer-term, Amazon may change that arrangement to align the startup's hardware better with Amazon's homegrown smart appliance lineup.
