Ring has a new version of its Alarm Security Kit. Like the first-gen system, the five-piece starter kit comes with a hub, a keypad, one door/window sensor, one motion sensor and one range extender. It can be used alone or along with Ring's doorbells and security cameras -- and it still costs just $200.
You'll notice subtle design differences between the original and the new version. Ring says it added "one-touch buttons" to the keypad to quickly contact law enforcement and other first responders. The Amazon smart home company also updated both the door/window sensors and the motion sensors, making them "smaller and easier to mount," according to a Ring blog post published Thursday.
Add on a Ring Protect Plus plan for $10 a month for a professional monitoring subscription. Like other DIY security brands, you can cancel whenever you want, no early termination fees included. There's no contract associated with the system or the professional monitoring service.
