Although it looks like one, the Ring Video Doorbell Wired isn’t a regular doorbell at all. It’s a smart doorbell that can provide you with a 24/7 video stream and a nice wide field of view (up to 155 degrees horizontal and 90 degrees vertical) — meaning you can see a broad swath of your property and any activity that might be occurring. The device syncs to your smartphone, tablet, laptop or streaming device (it’s easy — there’s a Ring app), so you can keep an eye on your home whether you’re inside, at work or away on that big vacation you’re already planning for this summer.

It's also hardwired into your home’s electric system, so there’s no need to worry about replacing batteries every few months. As long as there’s electricity flowing through your home, this guy is on the job.

The Ring Video Doorbell Wired has a customizable motion detection system that'll alert you when anyone sets foot on your property. It comes with a 'near' motion zone that detects areas between about five to 15 feet from your front door, so notifications are more accurate and precise compared to previous models. It even works after dark, using infrared night vision. Now you can always be aware of your surroundings even during the wee-est hours.

"I absolutely love this doorbell. I’m thrilled the doorbell doesn’t need batteries. I hated that. Because we’d inevitably have to change the batteries when the weather sucked. Not anymore," raved a five-star reviewer. "The setup is so easy and the doorbell notifications come through my phone and my Alexa Echo Dot...Plus the quality of the sound from outside is really good too... Being disabled I truly appreciate convenience. And with this device, I have it in abundance! I would absolutely purchase this particular Ring doorbell again."

This bundle gets you a free Echo Dot (third generation). It's a small, but mighty speaker that can stream tunes from Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM and more. In fact, you can pair your phone to this little guy via Bluetooth, so you can bring your own music to the party.

You can also pair it with another Echo Dot to create amazing stereo sound in your home for less than what it would cost for just one Bluetooth speaker from Bose or Sonos. And of course, the Alexa voice assistant is included, so you can always get the latest news, weather, sports updates and even control other smart home devices like the Ring Video Doorbell Wired with just the sound of your voice.

"The sound quality is great,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I was really surprised by how much sound comes out of this little device."

At $45 for Prime members only (was $100), the Ring Video Doorbell Wired bundle with Echo Dot (third generation) is a fantastic deal. Our advice? Pick up this bundle before it sells out or its price skyrockets back up.
