It’s no surprise that home improvement projects have had a huge uptick over the past few years, but according to Houzz's 2021 Reno Report, installing home security systems has been one of the most popular projects of late. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your own system, or putting one in for the first time, you’re in luck—Amazon Prime Day 2022 has tons of Ring Home Security devices included in its mega savings bonanza. And all are incredibly easy to install, no electrician required.

No quite sure where to start? Try PureWow’s executive editor Candace Davison's PureWow100 review of the Ring Video 3. In addition to an easy 10-minute set-up and adjustable motion sensors, Davison says: “Once you install the Ring app, you can get real-time video notifications to see who (or what) is outside your door. The 1080p footage is crisp—even in Night Vision mode—though I soon found myself springing for the $30 a year Ring Protect Plan, which records video and stores it for 60 days. So, if I missed a notification, I can go back and review it later. It provides particular peace of mind if you’re away from home and want a quick glimpse to see what’s going on outside. (If you own multiple Ring devices—say, security cameras—you can pay $100 a year for coverage across them all).

“When you install a video doorbell, you’ll become strangely entranced by it. I can’t explain the psychology behind it, but there’s a sudden endorphin rush akin to getting a hotly anticipated group-text reply the moment your phone buzzes that 'motion was detected outside your door.’ Yes, the bizarro bird-leg side table I impulse-bought at 2 a.m. has arrived! Or an adrenaline rush: Duck for cover! Somebody is trying to sell me…something,” Davison raves.

But we haven't even gotten to the best part: From now through tomorrow, July 13 at 11:59 EST, you can save tons on Ring Alarm kits like this nine-piece setup for $225 (originally $425)—which includes a base station to keep your system online, one keypad for in-home control, four contact sensors, one motion detector and one range extender to ensure every corner of your home is covered, and, of course, a Ring Video Doorbell with Echo Show 5.

So, if you’re ready for a home upgrade with some alternative entertainment, we suggest you *run* to checkout before these kits are all gone.
