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.
