Amazon Prime Day is officially confirmed for July 12 and 13, 2022, and just like past years’ events, I have every reason to expect big savings out of many of the industry’s best security cameras.

A huge draw of Prime Day, an annual event that’s billed as Amazon’s version of Black Friday, is the multitude of deep discounts on home security products from all sorts of different brands — from Arlo’s Ultra camera system to Canary’s All-in-One security devices. (Don’t worry, Ring is also in the mix.)

But by and large, the best savings you’ll find on security cameras on Prime Day will be among Amazon-owned products. Those, you might be aware, include Ring’s versatile cameras and systems, as well as Blink, a suite of affordable wire-free cams.

What exactly can you expect from these brands on this year’s Prime Day? Half the fun is discovering the deals day-of, but if last year’s savings are any indication of what to expect, you’re in for a treat. Take a look at these deals from 2021:

Final Thoughts: Security Cameras on Prime Day 2022

Although Amazon announced this year’s Prime Day will take place on July 12 and 13, it’s too soon to predict exactly which cameras will be discounted. I’m expecting pretty exciting developments in the weeks to come. Knowing what I know about the massive retailer, I anticipate plenty of price-slashing on Ring cameras as the event approaches, specifically on Ring’s Floodlight camera, so keep your eyes peeled for those.

Elsewhere, expect a good showing from SimpliCam, the camera from budget-friendly security brand SimpliSafe; if you’re looking to add or replace your home security system, Prime Day could be a fitting time to grab a SimpliSafe + free SimpliCam deal (check out my full SimpliCam review here).
