Deploy your door for the battles to come with Amazon’s Ring Video Doorbell 2 at $129. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 usually sells for $199, and the fall today is one of the best we’ve seen outside of refurbished models.

If you’re interested in this, you might think of another Amazon bundle. This package includes a total of just $139 for the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Amazon’s Echo Show 5. That’s $10 extra and you’re getting a smart screen that can monitor your smart home and work with the video doorbell directly.

The Video Doorbell 2 allows you to view, hear and talk to anyone visiting your home using your mobile device or computer (or new Echo Show 5). The free companion app can be used or the video doorbell can be connected to your smart home. It works with Amazon’s Alexa to open the video with your voice. Just say “Alexa, speak to the front door” and you’re not even going to have to stand up to deal with your guests. Plus, since you can do this from anywhere in the world when that annoying neighbor comes knocking, you can pretend you’re out of the house. That’s right there a life-changer.

The doorbell camera uses motion detection, night vision, and records in 1080p HD video. A rechargeable battery is available to install anywhere. That’s good if you don’t have a standard doorbell where you’re planning to install this device. You still have the ability to make it hardwired, which is presumably why you won’t have to worry about the battery Nothing worse than a doorbell that is not belling because it needs to be recharged.

The ring supports it with theft protection for a lifetime.
