Your smart lock even detects when you’re near your door, automatically unlocking it so if your hands are full of groceries you don’t have to bother fumbling around with your keys. Your door will also lock up every time you leave so if you’re ever running late you don’t have to keep worrying about whether you locked your door on your way out.

If you’re ever on an extended trip away and just need some additional security, you can add biometric verification to unlock your door. Just enable your smartphone’s biometric or facial recognition features on the August app to make sure your front door is only accessible by you. The added Connect Bridge helps your smart lock connect to Wi-Fi to not just enable this feature but also so you can monitor your front door with just your voice. Ask Alexa, Google, or Siri to lock and unlock your door or just check the status of your door. If you don’t already have an Amazon-enabled device, the added free Echo Dot (3rd Gen) in the bundle will do just that for you.

With added privacy measures, voice assistant compatibility, and automatic lock/unlock features, the August Smart Lock Pro is a great addition to your existing smart home. You even get an added Connect Bridge for Wi-Fi connectivity and a free included Amazon Echo Dot in this bundle, all for the low price of $155 — usually $230.

Get a Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Dot for $40 today (save $65)
Two people saying hi with a Ring Video Doorbell Wired.

Today is the second and final day of Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale, the second mega sales event of the year following the traditional Prime Day in July. We're calling it Prime Day October 2022 and it's certainly replete with compelling Prime Day deals. One of the most outrageously appealing deals today is an Amazon smart home bundle that includes the Ring Video Doorbell (wired) and Echo Dot (Gen 3) for a just $40 a of $65 from the normal combined $105 price.

Why you should buy the Ring Video Doorbell  and Echo Dot (Gen 3)
Ring, which is an Amazon-owned brand, isn't the only video doorbell company but it's the most well-known. There are other compelling Prime Day Ring Doorbell deals, but when you can pick up a Ring doorbell with an Echo Dot smart speaker for just $40, it could be hard to justify spending more on fancier models. The Ring Video Doorbell Wired includes all the features most people seek, including 1080p HD video with night vision, two-way talk, and motion detection to alert you to visitors before they ring your bell (or if they don't). Everything you need to install the Ring Video Doorbell Wired including tools comes in the package. Note that even though this Ring model connects to existing home doorbell wiring, it won't ring an existing doorbell chime, so you'll need to buy a Ring chime if you want a traditional doorbell ring. Otherwise, you can set the Ring software to send alerts to your smartphone or to an Alexa device such as the bundled Echo Dot Gen 3 smart speaker. if you want to view previously recorded videos, the Ring Protect Plan, sold separately, stores your recordings for up to 180 days.
