Amazon has taken $60 off of the regular price of the Ring Video Doorbell 2, making it the cheapest it has ever been. This is all part of Amazon touting its Early Black Friday Deals. There are a ton of great Early Black Friday deals going on right now, including the Ring Video Doorbell 2, which is an absolute steal at just $139, it's only $40 more than the original Ring Video Doorbell.
The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is a video doorbell that is a bit wide, it's not as skinny as the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, but that is also why it's cheaper. It's a smart doorbell that will send you a notification when someone comes to the door. Whether they ring the doorbell or not. That is because there is that camera built into the Ring Video Doorbell 2, which is going to be streaming all day and night. So it doubles as a security camera as well, which is a nice feature to have, especially if you are looking to keep an eye on your front porch – especially with the holidays coming up and lots of packages coming in. The camera here is going to stream in 1080p, which is not the best quality, but it is going to make it so that you can actually see who's there, even in the dark. With the Ring Video Doorbell 2, you will be able to see and talk to whoever is at the door. There is a microphone and a speaker included here. So if you are at work, and FedEx comes by to drop off a package, you can tell them to leave it under a chair on your porch so you can get it when you get home. Finally, and perhaps the most impressive feature of the Ring Video Doorbell 2, is the fact that it does also work with Amazon Alexa. This means that you can use your voice to ask Alexa who is at the door, when you don't have your phone nearby. This will only work on Alexa devices that have a display, like Fire TV, Fire Tablets, Echo Show, and Echo Spot. Unfortunately it only works on devices that have Alexa built-in, and not just compatible with Alexa.
This 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. However, if you are in one of the select areas that has Prime Now, this is also available and you can get it within a couple of hours, if you are in desperate need. 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 $119/year (or $59/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. That includes Amazon Prime Video, Twitch Prime, and even some benefits at Whole Foods.
