Best Black Friday Ring doorbell deals: Savings on Ring doorbells, floodlight camera, alarm kit and more
This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.
Black Friday is here and while many of the biggest and best deals are starting to run out, there are still great discounts remaining on Ring doorbells, Ring floodlight cameras and security kits.
While some of the best deals this Black Friday are a return to Prime Day pricing lows, there are some new additions to the line-up of home security products, including the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, now with a free Echo Show 5 (save $170). Walmart’s sale began on Nov. 25 and Best Buy started discounting on Nov. 22, but Amazon saved many of its biggest price drops for Black Friday, and we anticipate that prices won’t be this low again between now and Christmas.
You’ll notice that some of these items are now on back-order for two to three weeks, and those ship times will likely increase. Amazon devices rarely go “out of stock,” however, so in the worst-case scenario shipping dates may just get pushed further back.
We’ll keep the list below up to date with the best Ring doorbell deals and discounts for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, so check back often. Pricing and availability were accurate at time of last publication, but may change without notice.
Deals available now
The Ring offers live 1080p video, motion alerts and two-way voice communication and a feature called Pre-Roll (when someone or something trips the motion sensor, you can see what happened before that). This deal saves nearly 50% off the regular $250 retail price and throws in an Echo Show 5 ($90 list price) to boot.
Note, the Ring Pro doesn’t have a rechargeable battery. If you can’t connect it to the existing doorbell wires at your front door, this isn’t the video doorbell for you.
The Ring Peephole Cam is perfect for apartment dwellers or people without hardwired doorbells. It’s super easy to install, and $70 is a super welcoming price. If you’re interested in video doorbells in general, this is a great place to start.
Ring Alarm is a modular-style home security kit, and you can get various arrangements of the kit for great discounts. The five-piece with a free Echo Dot is the best deal, though, at 50% off the list price. You can also get the 14-piece set for an impressive $200.
Amazon notes that stock is running low, and it looks like this deal will be delivered in December if you order now.
Ring’s Floodlight Cam usually sells for $250, so finding the camera for under $200 — let alone with a free Echo Show 5 smart display thrown in — is a pleasant surprise. This package is perfect for jumpstarting your outdoor security system, whether to keep your house safe from burglars or just to spy on the raccoons who keep getting into your garbage.
Like the five-piece alarm deal above, Amazon notes that stock is running low, and it looks like this deal will be delivered in December if you order now.
