Ring's fantastic video doorbells are a doddle to set up, work with Alexa and help you keep an eye on everyone who comes to your door

We're just weeks away from Amazon's Black Friday event but the retailer is already dropping the price of some of its own range of products.

Until October 13, Amazon-owned home security and smart home company Ring is offering up to £50 off the price of its Ring Video Doorbell range, including the Ring Door View Cam. 

These fantastic video doorbells are a doddle to set up, work with Alexa and can help you keep an eye on everyone who comes to your door via your phone, a tablet or a PC. As you can no doubt tell, we're enamoured with them: in our Ring Video Doorbell 2 review, we call it "the best product of its type you can buy." 

If you want to add video recording, rather than just a live video feed, to any of your Ring Doorbell purchases, you'll need to subscribe to Ring Protect. Each subscription comes with a 30-day free trial and then prices start at £2.50/mth from Ring's website.

Below, you'll find the Ring savings at a glance.


1. Ring Video Doorbell 2 (Was £179, now £139)


The Ring Video Doorbell 2 usually costs £179 but is on sale for £139, representing a saving of £40 or 22%. It lets you monitor your property with 1080p HD and check in on your home at any time with Live View on-demand video and audio.

When someone presses your doorbell, or triggers the built-in motion sensors, you'll get an alert on your phone. You can then check who is at your door and talk to them, even if you're out of the house. This is pitched as a way to see off unwanted visitors but can also help you tell a courier to leave a parcel in a safe place, for example. What's more, it works with Alexa and if you have an Echo device with a screen, you can see who is at the door without having to find your phone.  

It really is simple to set up, but if you'd rather get an expert to install it, you can add £100 to the price.

2. Ring Video Doorbell Pro (Was £229, now £179)


The main difference between the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Doorbell Pro (other than the price) is the fact the Doorbell Pro is hardwired. This means it's more difficult to install, and you'll need to have existing doorbell wiring, but you don't have to worry about replacing the batteries.

The Doorbell Pro offers the same video quality, Live View, two-way audio and infrared night vision. Whereas the Doorbell 2 is weather resistant at temperatures from -20 degrees Celcius up to 50 degress Celcius, the Pro can handle slightly colder environments down to -25 degrees Celcius but only up to 48 degress Celcius. Seeing as the UK never reaches those extremes, we purely mention this difference for reference. 

You can read more in our Ring Video Doorbell Pro review but unless the battery-power is an issue, we highly recommend the Ring Video Doorbell 2.

3. Ring Video Doorbell Cam (Was £179, now £139)


The Ring Video Doorbell upgrades your existing peephole with a 1080p HD Door View Cam that lets you see, hear and speak to visitors remotely. It largely offers the same features as the Ring Doorbell 2 and Ring Doorbell Pro – instant notifications, Live View, two-way talk and support for Alexa – but it additionally lets you set up privacy zones and disable audio to help you control when you get notifications.
