You can now buy Ring video doorbells for just $35 on Amazon
Home security is no longer just about making sure you lock your doors and windows. Thanks to the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, we can now monitor our homes in real time, no matter where we are, and take advantage of everything from motion sensors to shaped doorbell.
These devices are not always cheap and it can be expensive to start a home security ecosystem. However, if you’re willing to compromise a little — like choosing a refurbished model over a brand new one, for example — the price can drop dramatically.
Such an agreement is available. At Amazon, you can pick up the 2021 model of Ring doorbell video just under $35, $20 off, or 36%.
The Ring doorbell video is a complete wired product with 1080p HD recording, two-way talk, 2.4GHz connectivity and night vision. You can connect your doorbell to the Ring mobile app to check in on your home at any time and talk to guests — expected or not. There is an optional subscription, Ring Protect, which saves recordings and photos in the cloud.
