You're probably already familiar with the Ring Video Doorbell, but the Ring Alarm (opens in new tab) is easily the first Ring product you need for your home. Luckily, today's your chance to snag the home security system at a discount, as Amazon has the 5-piece security system bundled with a free Echo Dot smart speaker (opens in new tab) on sale for $159.99 right now. That saves you $40 off the Ring Alarm and $50 off the Echo Dot.

Then again, you can save even more on the 8-piece (opens in new tab) and 14-piece (opens in new tab) Ring Alarm security systems; the 8-piece is now discounted by $50 while the 14-piece is discounted by $65. Along with the free Echo Dot, those are some pretty hefty savings.

Ring Alarm Home Security Kit with free Amazon Echo Dot (opens in new tab)

Amazon's tossing in a free Echo Dot with purchases of the Ring Alarm smart security system right now, and thanks to a discount of up to $65 on the alarm system, you can score one of the best deals ever on this smart home bundle.

The Ring Alarm home security system utilizes the same app that the Ring Video Doorbell (opens in new tab) uses, allowing you to manage both easily from anywhere in the world using just your smartphone. Of course, the app is available for download on tablets and PCs too. There are other, more robust Ring Alarm configurations on sale (opens in new tab), though the 5-piece version is the most affordable. Thanks to the included Echo Dot speaker, you'll even be able to voice control this alarm system, including arming, disarming, and checking its status by asking Alexa for assistance.

Ring's 5-piece kit comes with one base station, one contact sensor, one extender, one keypad, and one motion detector. You'll be able to use this system to get instant alerts for a variety of things including when doors or windows are left open or when the system detects motion. You can monitor it all from your iOS or Android phone or tablet. It's also easy to setup, requiring no extra tools or professionals.

If you already have other Ring products (opens in new tab), they can all communicate with each other. The system even includes a 24-hour backup battery and 110-decibel siren. You can learn much more about this home security system in Android Central's Ring Alarm review from 2018.

Amazon offers free shipping on orders totaling $25 or more, though you could receive your order even faster with an Amazon Prime membership. If you've never been a member before, you can start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) today to score free two-day shipping along with access to all of Prime's perks like the Prime Video streaming service, exclusive members-only discounts (opens in new tab), and more.
