If you're on the hunt for a video doorbell, today there are some killer deals worth your consideration. One such deal is the Ring Video Doorbell 2 (opens in new tab), which is currently available for $199 at Amazon. The kicker is the inclusion of a free Echo Show 5, a device that plays well with the video doorbell. It usually costs $90, so when that's factored in, you're essentially getting the doorbell for $110. Shipping on this bundle is free.
This doorbell takes your home to the next level. Installation is simple, too. You can use the rechargeable battery that's included, meaning you just stick it up and keep the battery charged. Alternatively, if you know your way around the inside of a wall, the doorbell can also be hardwired. Once installed, you'll be able to get a notification on your phone, tablet, or computer when motion is detected or the doorbell is pressed. Thanks to the two-way communication and 1080p live video, you can see, hear, and speak to visitors, even if you aren't currently home, even at night. Another amazing feature is the Lifetime Theft Protection. If some jerk comes and steals your doorbell, Ring will replace it. For free.
Amazon's Echo Show 5 (opens in new tab) is equipped with a compact 5.5-inch smart display that can show you the weather, news reports, movie trailers, and more, or you can listen to radio stations, podcasts, audiobooks, and music streaming services like Apple Music or Spotify. It's best utilized as a hub for any smart home devices you have too, as it allows you to voice control any compatible devices using Amazon Alexa.
If you'd rather go pro, you can pay just $50 more and get the same bundle with a Ring Video Doorbell Pro instead. Alternatively, if $200 is out of your budget, you can pick up the Ring Video Doorbell 2 on its own for only $70 in used condition.
