Best Buy has the Video Doorbell 3 Plus on sale right now for crazy cheap, at $50 off. That means you can grab it for $150 with free shipping or free in-store pickup.

Not sure where to start building your smart home? Here’s a guide to the best smart home devices of 2021, and guess what’s a recommendation on there? A smart home video doorbell, so you can answer your door safely, and remotely.
The Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus connects to your local Wi-Fi network — Ethernet is possible too — and allows you to view a live feed remotely. You can listen in, record video for reference later, or even communicate with anyone that’s at your door. It offers good, 2K-quality video with a full-HD resolution. When alerts trigger, they record a four-second preview so you can see what happened. You can also save and share those videos, and photos, with an active Ring Protect Plan — which is a cloud subscription service. Bear in mind, you don’t need to subscribe to use the device, just to store videos.
Ring works with Alexa so you can get announcements on your Echo devices, and interact using voice commands. Pair the doorbell with a smart lock and you get even more control over who comes and goes into your home.
Best Buy is offering the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus for $50 off $200, which brings the final price down to $150 with free shipping. You can also pick it up within an hour of purchase if there’s a Best Buy near you.
A smart video doorbell isn’t the only way to convert your house into a smart home. There are a bunch of other related tech deals available too. We gathered all of the best ones for you below.
