Amazon currently has the Ring Video Doorbell Pro on sale for just $199, which knocks $30 off of its regular price. Bringing it to its all-time lowest price, but more importantly, dropping it below the price of the Nest Hello - its latest competitor.
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is a smart doorbell that you can install outside of your home. Now it does require some existing doorbell wiring, as it is not battery operated like the original Ring Doorbell. But it is pretty simple to install. Once it is installed, you'll be able to see who is at the door without going to the door. As the name states, there is a camera built-in, so you can see who's there, even when you aren't home. The camera does have the option of recording motion outside, so that if someone were to try to break in, or perhaps steal a package from in front of your home, you will have proof that it happened, and even help the police catch the person. This is actually something that has happened quite a bit recently, so while many aren't too excited about these smart home products, they are helping to stop crime and make people feel safer in their own home, and that is definitely important.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
