Ring Stick Up Security Camera — $85, was $100

Ring

Every family has different security needs and preferences. The Ring Stick Up Cam Battery model is an excellent choice for most home security configurations. You can use it indoors or outdoors, and it doesn’t need to plug it in for either network connectivity or power. The battery-operated Stick Up Cam Battery lasts six months to a year on a fully charged battery, and recharging takes four to six hours. You can wall-mount the camera or use it in freestanding mode.

The Ring Stick Up Cam records 1080p full HD video with a 130-degree horizontal field of view when its motion detector senses movement. You can configure the camera to send an alert to your smartphone so you can talk to whoever is in range via the camera’s two-way audio feature. The camera is Alexa-compatible, so you can see live video or view recorded video clips stored in the cloud with any Amazon Echo-compatible smart display.

Normally $100, the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery is on sale for $85 at Best Buy and includes a free third-generation Amazon Echo Dot.
