Devices that fall into the “smart home” category are starting to pick up these days in terms of popularity, but they haven’t taken off like most analysts thought they would. It’s simple: not everyone is convinced that everything in their lives needs to be connected. Of course, there are some smart home devices that just about everyone can agree will improve and enhance the lives of anyone who uses them, and the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell is a perfect example. Well guess what: It’s on sale right now for $74 off list price, but this killer Black Friday deal is only good for a short time.

Here’s what you need to know about the Ring:

  • See, hear and speak to anyone at your door from your smartphone, tablet or PC.
  • Get instant alerts when visitors press the button on your doorbell or trigger motion sensors.
  • Watch over your home in crystal-clear HD video.
  • Protect your home—day or night—with infrared night vision.
  • Communicate with visitors via two-way audio with noise cancellation.
  • Set up your doorbell in minutes with the included tool kit and installation guide.
  • Dual-powered: Runs off the internal battery or can be connected to existing doorbell wiring.
  • Lifetime purchase protection: If your doorbell gets stolen, we’ll replace it, for free!

How awesome is that?!
