TL;DR: Pre-Prime Day sale alert: now through Sunday, July 14, Amazon Prime members can order a Ring video doorbell Pro (worth $249) and a third-generation Echo Dot (worth $49.99) for just $169 altogether — a 43% savings.
Is that a wannabe burglar on your doorstep, or just the Amazon delivery guy?
You can find out in seconds if you’ve got a Ring Video Doorbell Pro installed by your front steps. The device lets you answer the door from anywhere — provided you download its free companion app — and hear and speak to whomever’s there via HD video. It can also be set up to send you a mobile alert every time its motion sensors are triggered. (Take that, bad guys.)
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is usually listed at $249, but if you act fast, you can grab one for super cheap *and* get a bonus third-generation Echo Dot (worth $49.99) as part of a smart home bundle that Amazon’s put together ahead of this year’s Prime Day sales event. Altogether, you’ll pay just $169.
When paired with the Echo Dot, Ring’s doorbell is able to use the smart speaker’s built-in Alexa virtual assistant to make announcements about visitors (invited or otherwise) when they press its button or trip its sensors. It’ll also illuminate the Dot and other connected Echo devices throughout your home to make it easy for you to know if someone’s outside. If you don’t want to go all-out with a full-fledged home security system, this setup makes it simple to an add an extra layer of protection to your home.
A $298.99 total value, you can snag Amazon’s Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Echo Dot bundle for that gloriously discounted price now through Sunday, July 14.
