We lead busy lives, and no one can be waiting at the door to greet guests 24/7. Sometimes you just need a minute or two, and rather than letting your guest wait in confusion or leave before you're aware they're there, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro is prepared for every guest. It sends alerts straight to your phone when motion is detected, along with video feed of your doorway so you can see and speak with your visitor. While they generally sell for $249, certified refurbished models are on sale at Amazon for only $149 right now, saving you $100 off the cost of one in brand new condition. These doorbells have all been refurbished directly by Ring to ensure they're in working order and in like-new condition, and they also include a full one-year warranty with their purchase. Refurbished models generally sell for $224 at Amazon.
You can't always be around to see who's knocking at your door, which is why the Ring Video Doorbell Pro was created. It sends your phone notifications when motion is detected at your door; you can even see and speak with visitors via the Ring app.
Ring's Video Doorbell Pro takes the place of your existing hardwired doorbell at home. It's equipped with a 1080p HD camera featuring infrared night vision that lets you view its video feed using an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and you'll be able to do so from anywhere in the world. It's also equipped with a microphone and built-in speaker that allows you to speak with any visitors that arrive at your door. There's an integrated motion sensor as well which can send an alert to your phone even before the doorbell is pressed. Plus, with Ring's Lifetime Theft Protection, you can rest easy knowing that if this device is ever stolen, you can get a replacement for free.
Ring devices like the one above are even compatible with Amazon Alexa. That means if you have a device at home like the Echo Show, Alexa will not only share announcements whenever motion is detected or the doorbell is pressed, but also let you see and talk to visitors on the Echo's screen.
