Amazon is bundling the Ring Video Doorbell Pro with its Echo Spot for $ 278, a savings of $ 102 compared to buying the two separately. At first glance, it may seem like a bit of an odd pairing, but the two of these devices actually work quite well together. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro allows you to answer your door and interact with the people on the other end from  [Read More…]

Which Ring doorbell should you buy?

What’s the difference between the four options of Ring Video Doorbell? I’ve used three and can help you pick the right one for your home.

I once said that a $ 200 doorbell was a very silly thing. I was very, very wrong. Because the Ring Video Doorbell — as well as the Ring 2 and Ring Pro — has very quickly become one of my favorite connected home products. It’s not inexpensive, and it’s not perfect. But it’s paid for  [Read More…]

Finally, a security camera that doesn’t scream “look at me”!

There is no shortage of home security camera options out there, and they range in price from well under $ 100 to well above it. Picking the right one can send you down a dark spiraling path trying to pick the right style, one that you can power easily, and one that is easy to manage.

Nest Hello vs. Ring Pro: Say hello to the new best connected doorbell

Nest Hello, left, and Ring Pro.

And just like that, I have a new favorite video doorbell.

Ring has made quite the name for itself the past couple years thanks to its stable of video doorbells, DIY security cameras — and I’d say some damned good marketing. So good, in fact, that Amazon reportedly scooped up the company for something like $ 1 billion.
