One of the essential pieces of information that comes with this year’s Prime Day deals is that Amazon has let us know that it won’t be offering deeper discounts on Black Friday or Cyber Monday than the company is now. That means that key items, like this Ring Doorbell, which is

$30 off

(it’s only $70, down from its regular price of $100), won’t be this cheap again until next year’s big sales. This is your best shot to get amazing tech like a Ring Doorbell for prices this low!

This is the all new, second-generation, Ring Doorbell. Amazon’s Ring totally upgraded its tech for this model and gave it some impressive specs to provide you with better, clearer, views from more angles, and greater peace of mind.

Most importantly, it has a 1080-pixel camera with a 155-degree field of view, so you can get a clear picture of whomever (or whatever) is at your door. Also, the brand has installed two-way audio options, motion sensors, and night vision features. That means that you can double down on safety and security when the sun drops, and there’s the added convenience of being able to speak with whomever is at your door, and have them speak back to you.

Even better, Ring added an additional motion zone monitoring. This motion detection technology turns on the Ring Video Doorbell’s camera whenever it sees something, giving you a jump on whatever’s going on outside your home. The Ring Video Doorbell connects seamlessly to your Alexa, and is specially designed to update you via your smartphone, tablet or computer. So when someone rings, or sets off the motion sensors, you can be notified no matter where you are. Also, there’s a built-in rechargeable battery that makes this device economical; if you don’t want to worry about batteries at all, you can always connect it directly to existing doorbell wires.

For one last layer of protection, Amazon offers the Ring Protect Plan (for an additional charge). It’s a safe-monitoring service that allows you to go back in time and review any footage to catch anything you may have missed. You can save and access imagery with Ring Protect Plan for just $3/month per device or $10/month per household.

Most likely, we will not see Ring Video Doorbells this cheap again until 2021. This is your chance to score a Ring Doorbell and have peace of mind, no matter where you are. It’s only $70 right now, which is

$30 off

its regular price of $100. And it won’t be this cheap again for a long time.

Want something a bit different? You’re in luck — there are plenty of other Prime Day smart home deals happening right now, as well as a bunch of other Prime Day Ring Doorbell deals.
