When it comes to video doorbells, you really can’t go wrong with any of the models Amazon-owned Ring currently offers. Prices start at $100 for the entry-level Ring Video Doorbell with 720p resolution, and they climb as high as $500 for the Ring Video Doorbell Elite with 1080p resolution, Ethernet support, and plenty more. That’s a hefty chunk of change to cough up for a video doorbell though, which might be why most people land on the $200 Ring Video Doorbell 2. And now, Amazon has unveiled a new version of this model dubbed the Ring Video Doorbell 3. It’s currently available for pre-order ahead of its release on April 8, and it costs $200 just like the second-generation version it replaces. Before you order one though, there’s another route you should consider.
The Ring Doorbell 3 shows you who’s at your front door with a vivid 1080p live video stream to your smartphone, tablet, TV, or even a smart display like the Echo Show 5 (which is on sale right now for $59.99 if you pick up a refurb on Amazon). Whether you’re 10 feet from your front door or 10,000 miles away from home, you can always see what’s going on. The doorbell can automatically record video and alert you to movement as well if you want, and there are plenty more great features to be found. Of course, the Ring Video Doorbell 2 does all that as well! The only real differences are 5Ghz Wi-Fi support and slightly different motion detection controls. Is that worth paying extra for?
You should definitely consider checking out the Ring Video Doorbell 2 instead. It’s super easy to install — power comes either from a battery pack or from the cables that were running to your old doorbell depending on how you install the Ring Video Doorbell 2. The doorbell is also fully compatible with Alexa, so you can say things like “Alexa, talk to the front door” and you’ll instantly be talking to whoever might be approaching your home. You can set motion zones as well so that you’re not alerted when cars drive by, for example.
There’s no question that the Ring Video Doorbell 2 is well worth its regular price of $200, but Amazon just dropped the price for a limited time to $169. It’s the first time the standalone Ring Doorbell 2 has gone on sale this year so far, but this deal won’t last long so definitely get in on the action before it’s too late.
Also of note, there’s another great Ring Doorbell deal right now on Amazon if you don’t mind 720p resolution and missing out on a few other features. The Ring Video Doorbell and Ring Chime normally cost $130 combined if you buy them separately, but you can pick them up today as a bundle and only pay $109.98 total.
