If you're on the hunt for a video doorbell, there are some killer deals worth your consideration at Amazon today. Devices like the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Ring Video Doorbell Pro are discounted by as much as $50 but the real kicker is that they both come with a free Amazon Echo Dot. Given that the Dot alone is worth $50, you're saving up to $100 with these limited-time deals and, unlike previous offers, these deals are available to everyone — not just Amazon Prime members.
Ring's Video Doorbell Pro takes the place of your existing hardwired doorbell at home. It's equipped with a 1080p HD camera featuring infrared night vision that lets you view its video feed using an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and you'll be able to do so from anywhere in the world. It's also equipped with a microphone and built-in speaker that allows you to speak with any visitors that arrive at your door. Meanwhile, its integrated motion sensor can send an alert to your phone even before the doorbell is pressed. Plus, with Ring's Lifetime Theft Protection, you can rest easy knowing that if this device is ever stolen, you can get a replacement for free.
With the Ring Video Doorbell 2, you can see, hear, and speak to visitors at your door by using an app on your phone, tablet, or computer. It's equipped with a camera that records in 1080p HD with infrared night vision so you can see what's going on outside your home no matter what time of day it is, and it's all accessible from anywhere in the world. All you'd have to do is open the app on your preferred device.
The doorbell has a rechargeable battery pack, or you can connect it to your existing doorbell wiring to keep it consistently powered up. And unlike older models, the Ring Video Doorbell 2 features an interchangeable faceplate in case you ever decide to change its look. It also comes with Ring's Lifetime Theft Protection.
Your doorbell pairs with the included Echo Dot really easily. You can then use Alexa to turn the light on or send announcements to your Echo devices when the doorbell is pressed or motion is detected. You can use your Echo device to hear and speak to visitors, too. Of course, your Dot has access to all of Alexa's smarts so you can use it to find out the weather, get news reports, listen to radio stations, podcasts, audiobooks, and music streaming services like Apple Music or Spotify.
Both of the doorbells on sale are featured on our list of the best video doorbells of 2020, so you know you're getting a quality product. Alternatively, if $169 or $199 is out of your budget, you can pick up the original Ring Video Doorbell for just $99.99.
