The best Ring doorbell cam and Show 5 bundles in Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals

Video doorbells are the bestselling Alexa-compatible, function-specific smart home devices that work with smart speakers such as the Echo Dot. Today’s Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals include the lowest prices we’ve seen for two Ring video doorbell bundles, even on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We monitor the prices of smart home devices and device bundles carefully because there are frequent changes. These prices may not last.

The Ring bundles in today’s deals are complete packages with motion-detection video cameras with two-way audio and Show 5 smart displays. You can use the Ring smartphone app remotely with the video doorbell cameras to see and talk with visitors, delivery people, solicitors, and anyone else that shows up at your door. With the Show 5 display, you can view the Ring camera’s livestream and recorded video and talk with visitors hands-free when you’re inside your home. When you use a smart display with the Ring video doorbells, you don’t need to find your smartphone and click on the app. Whether you’re buying Christmas gifts, building a smart home network, or want a convenient audio-video security system for your home, these two deals can help you save up to $150.

How to get Alexa to answer a Ring Video Doorbell
Ring Video Doorbell Pro with two-way talk

A Ring Video Doorbell is ultra-convenient; it lets you receive packages or respond to deliveries from anywhere in your home -- or anywhere in the world using the built-in camera and the Ring app.

You may also know that you can have Amazon’s Alexa smart speaker devices alert you to a doorbell ring -- and even show you who’s there. But if you want to take this a step further, you can actually have Alexa respond for you if you’re too busy to run to the door from your home office, or if you’re on the phone and can’t respond to the Ring Doorbell notification. Here’s how to get Alexa to answer your Ring Video Doorbell.
Smart Responses include Alexa Greetings
Smart Responses are a feature of Ring Video Doorbells that let you respond in the right way to whoever’s at the door, when you can’t do it yourself. Quick Replies, for example, let you allow visitors to leave a video message on the Ring Video Doorbell that you can view later. Alexa Greetings are a relatively new Smart Response feature where Alexa greets your visitor, takes a message, or provides instructions on what to do with a package.
What to know about Alexa Greetings on Ring Video Doorbell
Alexa Greetings is optional on Ring Video Doorbells and for now is only available to customers in the U.S. with compatible versions of the Ring Video Doorbell Pro. You also must be opted in to Ring’s Protect home security and cloud recording plan. They’ve been rolling it out in stages starting earlier on 2021 so it may or may not be available in your area.

How to connect a Ring Video Doorbell to Alexa
Ring Video Doorbell Pro with Echo Show 5.

Ring Video Doorbells are among the fastest to set up, providing an easy way to increase your home’s security. They allow you to view visitors and deliveries and get notified when there’s motion in the area in front of your door, day or night. While normally you need a smartphone and the Ring app to view who’s at the door, there is a way to have the doorbell camera pop up in more places.

You can make viewing your doorbell rings or motion alerts even more convenient by connecting your doorbell to Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant Amazon Echo smart speakers and displays. Not only can you get verbal alerts when someone is at the door, but if you have an Alexa device with a screen like the Echo Show 10, you can instantly see who’s there without doing a thing. Here’s what you need to know.
