It wouldn’t be an Amazon Black Friday sale if the retailer didn’t discount some of the best gadgets from its in-house brands. Case and point: if you’re looking to add a security camera or two to your home, Ring devices are included in the long list of Amazon’s best Black Friday 2023 deals. The highlight of the promotion is a two-for-one package that bundles together a third-generation Echo Show 5 smart display with a Ring Video Doorbell. Normally, Amazon sells the two together for about $190, but after a 65 percent discount, the bundle is just $65, with both the satin nickel and venetian bronze Ring Doorbell colorways included in the sale.
For those who already own a compatible smart display, or prefer to use their smartphone to review footage, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is on sale on its own. At the moment, it’s 40 percent off, making it $150 or $100 less than its $250 MSRP. For comparison, the Doorbell Pro 2 offers 1,536p video capture where the more affordable Doorbell is limited to 1080p. Additionally, the flagship model features a radar sensor that enables two features Amazon calls 3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View. The former makes the Doorbell Pro 2’s motion detection more accurate, while the latter allows the device to track a person’s movement across your front year in real time. That said, if all you want is a no-frills option, both the Video Doorbell and Video Doorbell Pro 2 include two-way talk. It’s also worth remembering both devices require a Ring Protect Plan to save footage for up to 180 days, something that adds to the cost of Amazon’s security products.
As for the Echo Show 5, the second-generation model has been a perennial fixture on Engadget’s list of the best smart displays. The 2023 model is mostly an iterative update on its predecessor, adding a faster processor and a more capable sound system to the mix. The Show 5’s diminutive 5.5-inch display makes it best suited to sit on a bedside table, but in a pinch, it can double as a video calling device, thanks to the inclusion of a 2-megapixel camera. As part of a $65 bundle that includes another device, you could do a lot worse than the Echo Show 5.
