Ring deals available now
Save $55 if you get a Ring Video Doorbell Wired bundled with a third-gen Amazon Echo Dot. We really liked the Video Doorbell Wired in our testing -- it's a great hardwired video doorbell at a reasonable price. That price is even better now; it's actually less than you'd spend on its normal list price of $60 to get it bundled with an Echo Dot.
If you don't want a third-gen Echo Dot bundled with the Ring Video Doorbell Wired, then this is your next best option. You can get the 1080p HD Video Doorbell Wired for $15 less than normal. It's a solid video doorbell that was already priced well, but this deal takes it under 50 bucks.
If you've been looking for an outdoor home security camera that doesn't require a power adapter to operate, the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery is a good option. Amazon sells them in single, two and three packs and they're all discounted. The single and two-pack options are $50 off while the three-pack kit is $147 off, at $450. The hardwired version of the camera is also $50 off, at its sale price of $200.
This is the latest version of Ring's Floodlight Cam, released earlier this year, so $40 off this new model is actually more significant than it may seem. It features a 1,080-pixel security camera with motion-activated LED floodlights, 105dB security siren, two-way talk and customizable motion zones.
Ring's indoor/outdoor Stick Up Cam is available in plug-in and battery versions, and it's the latter that's discounted right now. CNET's Megan Wollerton said the "camera's live feed was crisp and alerts arrived quickly after a motion event." The camera also works with an optional solar panel for power. The camera is normally $100 but now is down to $75.
This kit includes one base station, one keypad, four contact sensors, one motion detector and one range extender for Ring's DIY alarm system. None of the company's cameras are included in this package. However, you can get it paired with an indoor cam for $195 ($105 off) or a second-gen Ring Video Doorbell for $250 -- $90 off the normal price.
If you want a Ring Video Doorbell Wired with a Ring Chime, this is the deal for you. Get the two products bundled together for $75 -- that's a $5 savings. The Ring Chime is a range extender, a doorbell chime and nightlight.
Save $125 on the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery bundled with a second-gen Amazon Echo Show 5. If you've been looking for an outdoor home security camera that doesn't require a power adapter to operate, the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery is a good option. Add in a second-gen Echo Show 5, and you can ask Alexa to show you a live feed of whatever's happening on your Ring cam in real time.
Get the Blink Mini indoor home security camera for just $20 -- that's a savings of $15 off the regular price. For a basic indoor wired camera, the Blink Mini is a decent option, especially at this price. It has 1080p HD resolution, motion alerts, two-way talk and all of the other standard features you'd expect from a home security camera.
The Blink Outdoor camera typically costs $100, but it's currently on sale for $60. It's a pretty good security camera that's weatherproof and battery-powered so you don't have to deal with power outlets. The price was decent at $100, but the $40 savings makes it an even better option if you're looking for a versatile outdoor camera. Unlike the last-gen Blink XT2, this model requires a Blink subscription for cloud storage.
As its name suggests, the Ring Video Doorbell Elite is the Amazon company's most expensive smart doorbell. This refurbished model typically retails for $300 ($350 new), but is currently just $130. For your $170 in savings, you get a hardwired doorbell with a built-in camera. It features a flush-mount design and a power-over-Ethernet connection, and Amazon says it's "certified to look and work like new."
