Amazon is discounting the Ring Video Doorbell 2 today, by $40. Bringing the price down to $159. But to sweeten the deal, Amazon is also tossing in an Echo Dot for free. Which sort of makes this $90 off of its regular price, since the Echo Dot is a $50 value.
The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is a really great doorbell to pick up and install outside of your home. It's going to allow you to see who's at your front door, even if they don't want you to know they are there. Ring will notify you when it sees activity outside your front door. Even if that is in your driveway.
There is a wide-angle camera on the Ring Video Doorbell 2, which is wide enough to also get the ground in front of the door. So you can see when packages are delivered and potentially catch someone grabbing one and running off. And with the holiday shopping season fast approaching, this is going to be a big deal in the next few weeks.
Ring does work with Amazon Alexa, hence the free Echo Dot here. With Alexa, you're going to be able to ask it to bring up the feed from the doorbell's camera.
It can also ring on your Echo Dot or other Alexa speakers in your home, like a traditional doorbell. And from there you'll be able to talk to whoever is at the front door.
It's a pretty cool feature, to be honest. Though it can be a bit creepy at times.
This bundle is really good together, and getting it for just $159 is really impressive. Especially considering the fact that you likely won't even see this bundle at this price when Black Friday comes around.
