Summer is already in full swing, but chances are you probably have a few more weekend getaways and summer vacations on the horizon. The last thing you want to do while traveling is worry about what’s going on at home — especially while you’re sipping a cocktail by the pool. Which is why a home security system is an important item to have in place for peace of mind while you’re on the road.

If you’re in the market for a new home security system, Amazon shoppers seem to have found their ideal option in this Blink XT2 Smart Security Camera System. The best-selling system comes with three cameras that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Each camera boasts two-way audio so you can speak to visitors through your smartphone, HD night vision capabilities, and a customizable motion detection sensor that will send you alerts to your phone.

The system’s cameras are completely wireless and come with a two-year battery life guarantee, and they are designed to withstand the elements so you can hang them anywhere you like. Plus, they are synced with Alexa, which means you can view live streams and arm or disarm the cameras through any Alexa device — talk about added convenience!

We’re not the only ones impressed with the home security system either. More than 1,000 Amazon customers have given it their seal of approval and a 3.5-star rating to boot. The best part? The top-rated security system is currently majorly marked down for Amazon Prime Day.

Normally priced at $250, the three-camera kit can be yours for just $160 — that’s a whopping $90 savings. The deal is only good for another 16 hours, at time of writing, so you’ll have to act fast if you want to score this popular home security system at such a steep discount.
