Buy a Discounted Ring Video Doorbell, Get a Free Amazon Echo Dot
The front-door camera and smart speaker both work with Alexa
Doorbells have gone the way of the telephone; if you don’t already know who’s on the other end (of the phone call or the door chime), there’s a good chance you’ll hesitate to answer. Thankfully, there are ways to thwart robocalls. As for your front door, there’s Ring.
The video doorbell company, which has been on Shark Tank and is now owned by Amazon, just discounted two top-of-the-line models — the Pro and the second generation — plus they’re throwing in a free Echo Dot with each purchase.
This isn’t just some random giveaway, either. Both of these Ring doorbells are compatible with Amazon Alexa, so apart from keeping tabs on the goings on in front of your home with 1080HD video and infrared night vision, you can get alerts and speak through the connected Echo Dot smart speaker. Below, we’ve listed the main differences between the models.
Ring Video Doorbell 2 + Free Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
This is the easier of the two options. You can set it up in a matter of minutes in wireless mode with the rechargeable battery pack, or you can hardwire it to your existing doorbell.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro + Free Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
While both models have customizable motion detection, this Pro model is more advanced. Also, the Doorbell 2 has two interchangeable faceplates, but this Pro has four. Otherwise, they’re pretty much the same.
