The Ring Video Doorbell Pro (opens in new tab) has dropped back down to $199 on Amazon from a regular price of $249. We saw this deal very briefly earlier in April, but it only lasted for one day. If you missed that deal, today's your day because this one comes with a free Echo Dot, too. The Echo Dot (opens in new tab) is $30 on its own, but that's also a sale compared to its regular $50 price.

You can also save $30 and go with the Ring Video Doorbell 2 (opens in new tab). It's on sale for $169 from a street price of $200. Get a free Echo Dot with this deal as well. The major differences between the two devices is the Doorbell 2 has a rechargeable battery pack and is easier to install, especially in places where you can't hardwire it. The Doorbell Pro has much more advanced motion detection and works with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands.

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro pairs with that Echo Dot fairly smoothly. 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. With the video doorbell you'll record video in 1080p and be able to watch that video anywhere using your phone and Live View on-demand video and audio. Get mobile alerts, too.
