Amazon marked the close of the deal by slashing the price of Ring's original video doorbell from £159 to £89, a move that it is expected to be the first of many across Ring's product line. That's right, no tricks or anything. In case you're wondering, the new pricing is permanent, not temporary.
The dark-colored Ring doorbell is also on sale for $99.99 and ships April 22 on amazon.com. The more recent Ring 2 retails for $199. Ring's doorbell has a built-in camera, intercom, and Wi-Fi connection, so you can see and talk to visitors from other devices. If you're looking to kit out your home with smart gadgets that play nicely with Amazon's platform and all the others, it's worth considering Ring and its connected buzzers. However the firm alongside its video doorbells, also provides security cameras and camera equiped floodlights to provide a "ring" of security around people's homes.
