- What many people might not realize, however, is that it’s not a very substantial upgrade compared to the Ring Video Doorbell 2 that’s currently on sale at Amazon with a huge discount.
- For those looking for the best of the best, the higher-end Ring Video Doorbell Pro is also on sale right now at Amazon with a discount that’s almost as deep.

Amazon recently took the wraps off the newest addition to its ever-expanding lineup of Ring doorbells, alarms, and other smart home security devices. The Ring Video Doorbell 3 is indeed a decent upgrade, but there are really only a few new features that are worthwhile. A 4-second pre-roll feature is a bit better at catching motion earlier so you can see the person or animal that triggered the recording sooner. There are also even more configurable motion zone settings, so you have better control over what triggers a recording and an alert.
Those features are great, and there are a few other minor improvements as well. If you’re a tech-lover who always needs the latest and greatest great, then you can order a Ring Video Doorbell 3 right now for just $200 from Amazon. If you’re willing to forgo the minor upgrades, however, you’ll find two terrific deals on different Ring doorbell models that offer much better value.
First and foremost, the best-selling Ring Video Doorbell 2 is currently available for just $139. That’s a mere $10 more than the all-time low price we saw last year during Amazon’s big Black Friday and Cyber Week blowout sales, and it’s the lowest price of 2020 so far by a sizeable margin. Again, you really don’t lose anything important by opting for the Ring Video Doorbell 2 instead of the newer Ring Video Doorbell 3 model, so saving $60 certainly seems like a good idea for most people.
If you want to upgrade to the Pro model so you can get all the higher-end features it touts, you’ll be happy to learn that Amazon’s current discount on the Ring Video Doorbell Pro is almost as deep as the one on the Ring Video Doorbell 2. Head over to Amazon now before this deal is done and you can pick one up for just $199. What’s more, you’ll get a free Echo Dot with your purchase! That’s a $250 Ring Video Doorbell Pro plus a $50 Echo Dot for a total value of $300, so you really can’t go wrong.
