The biggest shopping day of the year is fast approaching, and we expect quite a few Black Friday deals as retailers jump-start the prime shopping season.
If you're in the market for a Ring Video Doorbell or a Ring security camera, many of the smart-home-device maker's products are going to be discounted. Here's what you can expect, as well as Ring deals you can find online right now.Best video doorbellsRing Video Doorbell vs. Ring 3 vs. Ring Pro: Which should you buy?Ring vs. Nest: Which video doorbell wins?Ring Video Doorbell deals you can get now
Ring Video Doorbell Wired: was $59 now $44 @ Amazon
Ring's least expensive video doorbell is even cheaper, currently marked down by $15. It's not a bad deal, but it's important to know that it requires a wired connection, and will not work with existing chimes, so you'll also need to pick up the Ring Chime ($29) or the Ring Chime Pro ($59.99).View Deal
Ring Video Doorbell Wired w/ Echo Dot: was $99 now $54 @ Amazon
This deal gets you the Ring Video doorbell Wired along with the third-generation Echo Dot, which you can use instead of the Ring Chime if a visitor buzzes your door. This is an older-generation Echo Dot, but is still very functional — in some ways, we like its lower profile better than the 4th-gen Echo Dot.View Deal
Ring Video Doorbell Wired w/ Echo Dot: was $109 now $94 @ Best Buy
If you want the latest 4th-gen Echo Dot, then check out this deal at Best Buy. The Echo Dot and the Ring Video Doorbell Wired typically sell for around $60 each, so you're getting a bit of a discount here. Amazon also offers this deal, but as of this writing, was out of stock.View Deal
Ring Video Doorbell Wired w/ Echo Show 5: was $139 now $124 @ Amazon
This deal gets you the Ring Video doorbell Wired along with the first-generation Echo Show 5, which is still quite good — the second-gen Echo Show 5 is only a minor upgrade. It's handy for when someone rings your doorbell, but you don't want to dig your phone out to see who's there. The Echo Show 5 also makes for a decent bedside clock.View Deal
Ring has seven doorbell models for you to choose among: The Ring Video Doorbell Wired ($59.99), Ring Video Doorbell 2020 ($99.99), Ring Video Doorbell 3 ($179.99), Ring Video Doorbell 4 ($199.99), Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 ($249) and the Ring Video Doorbell Elite ($349.99).
All have a camera at the top of the faceplate with a button below, 1080p video, intercom capabilities, Wi-Fi connectivity and Alexa support built-in. And all but the last have traditionally seen big discounts.
Because Ring is owned by Amazon, most Ring Black Friday deals involve a Ring Video Doorbell being bundled with one of Amazon's smart speakers or smart displays. Typically, this will be an Amazon Echo Show 5 or Amazon Echo Show 8, but can also include the Echo Dot, too. It's not a bad deal, as you can use the smart displays to see who's at the front door and talk with them, too.Other Ring Black Friday deals
In addition to video doorbells, Ring also makes security cameras and smart lighting, many of which are also offered at a discount around Black Friday, or bundled with other smart home devices.
We expect plenty more to come, but here are some of the other Ring deals you can find today.
Floodlight Cam Wired Plus w/ Echo Show 5: was $259 now $199 @ Amazon
The Ring Floodlight Cam Wired comes with two very bright floodlights and a siren, and lets you designate motion-detection privacy zones. Unlike Ring's newer floodlights, this model has to be connected to your home's wiring. Alone, the Floodlight costs $179, while the Echo Show 5 is $79, making this a deal worth considering.View Deal
