Protect your home with these cut-price camera deals.
There are plenty of security cameras to choose from these days, though not all of the options on the market can be classed as affordable. If you want to shore up your home's security without breaking the bank, Woot's limited-time sale on previously owned Ring security cameras is well worth checking out. It offers prices up to 57% lower than shopping brand new if you can live with a few cosmetic imperfections.
Investing in a security camera allows you to check-in on your home anytime you want. Alerts can give you a heads-up when someone is nearby, plus you can use your phone, tablet or compatible Echo device to see, hear or even talk to the person on the other side of your door. While each of the units have been tested and verified by Amazon, these are used products, which means there may be some cosmetic blemishes. But they also come with a 90-day Woot limited warranty, so you're protected if something goes wrong.
Right now you can save over $100 on the Ring Floodlight Cam Pro, bringing the price to $120. This a wired security cam has 360-degree motion detection and is attached to motion-activated 2,000-lumen LED floodlights. It also has a built-in 110 decibel security siren, two-way audio and connects to your home Wi-Fi. Or you can get the wired Ring Floodlight Cam Plus from $100, down from $200. It lacks the 360-degree detection and has a quieter alarm, but it's a still a solid choice for most homes and provides alerts, two-way audio and customizable motion zones. And if it's an indoor camera you're after, this sale has also got you covered with the first-gen Ring Indoor Cam on sale for just $34.
For those already set up with battery-powered Ring cameras that don't want to convert to a wired system, the sale includes a solar panel available for $21 that can help keep your devices charged up. The panel works with wire-free Ring Spotlight Cam and Stick Up Cam models as well as USB-C input Ring cameras like the Spotlight Cam Plus and Spotlight Cam Pro if you pick up the Ring barrel plug to USB-C adapter.
All of these devices can pair with Alexa, helping integrate all your compatible smart home devices together. But before you buy, you should consider your comfort level with Ring's current relationship with law enforcement. Keep in mind that if privacy is a concern, you can always opt out of some of Ring's data-sharing settings. And if you want to be able to record and review all of your videos for up to 180 days, you can also subscribe to a Ring Protect Plan, though that service is sold separately starting at $3 a month.
