Amazon slashes prices on Ring Alarm Systems and throws in a Free Echo Dot

Amazon is getting a fast start with smart home device deals this fall. The pressure builds for sellers and shoppers as Black Friday and Cyber Monday get closer, but you don’t need to wait for the day after Thanksgiving for excellent deals. Amazon and Walmart, in particular, know they can’t save all the best bargains till the end of the season, or too many shoppers would just wait. Amazon’s current video doorbell sale, bundled with free Show 5 smart displays, is an example of a great deal now. Continuing with its winning strategy of cutting prices on smart home security devices, Amazon just slashed prices on Ring Alarm Systems bundled with free Echo Dots.

We’ve found the best discounts on Ring Alarm Systems from Amazon and put them all in one place. These deals all include a third-generation Echo Dot for no extra charge so you could figure each deal saves an additional $50. Whether you’re buying your first smart home device and want to start with a security system, or adding smart components to an already fully- configured smart home, these five deals can help you save up to $90.

Ring Alarm 5-Piece Kit and Echo Dot — $50 off

The Ring Alarm 5-Piece Kit is the basic setup for this line. This kit includes a base station, a keypad to arm and disarm the system, a motion detector, one contact sensor for a door or window, and a range extender to help the base station wireless signal reach all components. You can configure the system to send alerts to the free smartphone app. No contract is required, but if you wish, your system can be professionally monitored with cellular backup and unlimited video recording (with optional security cameras) for just $10 a month after a free trial.

Normally priced at $199, the Ring Alarm 5-Piece Kit and Echo Dot is just $149 during this sale. If you have a small apartment or just want to try out the system before buying more components, this is an inexpensive way to begin.
