Amazon smashes prices of Ring Alarm system kits by 40% with a free Echo Dot

If’ you’ve been waiting for a sale on Ring’s Alexa-compatible DIY Home security alarms, this is it. Matching the best prices we saw during last year’s Black Friday to Cyber Monday sales, Amazon just smashed the prices on Ring Alarm systems kits by 40% with a free third-generation Echo Dot.

Each Ring Alarm kit includes a Base Station with a 104-decibel siren, a Keypad to arm or disarm the system (which you can also do with the Ring App or Alexa), one or more Contact Sensors for windows or doors, a Motion Detector, and a Wi-Fi Range Extender.

The Base Station, Keypad, and Range Extender plug into AC outlets. The sensors and motion detectors are battery-powered with battery life rated to last approximately three years. The biggest attraction of battery-powered devices is their ease of installation. As long as they’re within about 250-feet of the Ring Alarm Base Station, you can pretty much stick them anywhere. The Wi-Fi Range Extender reinforces the wireless connection.

You don’t need an Alexa device to monitor the Ring Alarm kits, because you can monitor and control the system remotely with the free Ring app. With Alexa-compatible smart speakers or smart displays, such as the included Echo Dot smart speaker or an Echo Show 5 smart display, you can use voice commands to control the alarm system.

Ring Alarm kits all have Ring Protect service at no extra cost. The free service includes motion-activated notifications to your smartphone, real-time Live View video with any Ring-compatible connected smart cameras, two-way talk with Ring video doorbells and properly equipped security lights and cameras, and lifetime theft protection. The optional Ring Protect Plus plan costs $10 a month or $100 a year. It includes 24/7 professional monitoring service, extended warranties for all Ring devices at your address, and 10% off select Ring devices.

So if you’ve been waiting for the prices to drop again for Ring Alarm kits, this is it. These five deals can help you save up to $160.

Normally priced at $249 purchased separately, the Ring Alarm 5-Piece Kit with the Echo Dot is just $139.

Ring Alarm 8-Piece Kit + Echo Dot — $120 off

Ring Alarm Smoke & CO Kit + Echo Dot — $140 off

Ring Alarm 14-Piece Kit + Echo Dot — $150 off

This is always one of the best times of the year to shop for tech and there are plenty of great Prime Day smart home deals on tap right now. One of the best applications of this burgeoning technology is home security, and for Prime Day, Amazon has the excellent Ring 8-piece home security system on sale for a whopping $100 discount. Read on to find out more about it.

The "smart home revolution" may have been a bit over-sold when this phrase first entered common parlance, but few can deny that leveraging new technologies for home security actually makes a lot of sense (much more sense than an internet-connected washing machine, at least). Ring largely led the way here with its excellent video doorbells and other smart home security devices, and the new second-generation Ring Alarm system has just about everything we love about this do-it-yourself tech.
