Amazon is offering a pretty terrific promotion on Ring Video Doorbells. For a limited time, if you buy the newer Ring Video Doorbell 2, you can get a free Echo Show 5 at checkout. To make the deal even better, Prime customers can save an additional $45 on the Ring Video Doorbell in the bundle, bringing the total savings up to $130.
You can find the Ring Video Doorbell with Free Echo 5 promotion right here on Amazon. The company did not indicate how long the promotion will last, so you might want to pounce on the deal while it’s still live.
The Echo 5 alone would typically set you back $85. Amazon announced the newer Echo Show 8 just a few weeks ago, and the Echo 5 device offers a 5.5″ smart display which can be used to watch videos and stream content. The reason for the bundle, is that the Echo Show’s display can be used to stream video from the Ring Doorbell, and the Echo Show features Alexa with voice activation and functionality. You can also use the built-in microphones on the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Echo 5 to communicate with whoever is at your door without ever having to leave the couch, or bed, depending on where you have the Echo 5 setup.
Using Alexa, you can choose to get alerts when your Doorbell is pressed or when motion is detected. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 also lets you see, hear, and speak to visitors from your phone, tablet or PC, and the device is easy to setup and comes with a rechargeable battery. You can check-in on the feed at any time with Live View on-demand video, and if your Doorbell gets stolen, Amazon will replace it for free.
It’s a great gift to make anyone feel safer about opening the door to strangers or when accepting deliveries. It can also be a terrific way to keep an eye on your place if you travel a lot, and some parents use them to keep tabs on when their kids are getting home from school, or when teens are getting home at night.
