It features a flush-mount design and a power-over-Ethernet connection, and Amazon says it’s “certified to look and work like new.”
Expired deals: May return for Prime Day
Save $125 on the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery bundled with a second-gen Amazon Echo Show 5. If you’ve been looking for an outdoor home security camera that doesn’t require a power adapter to operate, the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery is a good option. Add in a second-gen Echo Show 5 and you can ask Alexa to show you a live feed of whatever’s happening on your Ring cam in real-time.
Save $55 if you get a Ring Video Doorbell Wired bundled with a third-gen Amazon Echo Dot. We really liked the Video Doorbell Wired in our testing — it’s a great hardwired video doorbell at a reasonable price. That price is even better now; it’s actually less than you’d spend on its normal list price of $60 to get it bundled with an Echo Dot.
If you don’t want a third-gen Echo Dot bundled with the Ring Video Doorbell Wired, then this is your next best option. You can get the 1080p HD Video Doorbell Wired for $15 less than normal. It’s a solid video doorbell that was already priced well, but this deal takes it under 50 bucks.
If you want a Ring Video Doorbell Wired with a Ring Chime, this is the deal for you. Get the two products bundled together for $75 — that’s a $5 savings. The Ring Chime is a range extender, a doorbell chime and nightlight.
Get the Blink Mini indoor home security camera for just $20 — that’s a savings of $15 off the regular price. For a basic indoor wired camera, the Blink Mini is a decent option, especially at this price. It has 1080p HD resolution, motion alerts, two-way talk and all of the other standard features you’d expect from a home security camera.
The Blink Outdoor camera typically costs $100, but it’s currently on sale for $60. It’s a pretty good security camera that’s weatherproof and battery-powered so you don’t have to deal with power outlets. The price was decent at $100, but the $40 savings makes it an even better option if you’re looking for a versatile outdoor camera. Unlike thelast-gen Blink XT2, this model requires a Blink subscription for cloud storage.
