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.
