Ring Cameras

As a top seller in the home security industry for the past five years, Ring has clearly figured out what today’s homeowners are looking for. They’re a consistent favorite camera of ours, with reliable equipment and excellent 1080p HD resolution, not to mention an easy-to-use mobile app powered by none other than Amazon.1

So it should come as no surprise that Ring is poised to take a leading role during Prime Day 2021, which is scheduled for June 21-22, according to insider sources.

As the date draws closer, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the latest discounts and promotions to help you save on the Ring Indoor camera, as well as the Spotlight Cam, Stick Up Cam, and Floodlight Cam.

Even though we know the Prime Day dates, it’s tough to predict exactly how much you’ll save on Ring cameras during the big sale. One thing I know is that there’s sure to be plenty more surprises and announcements in the weeks to come (so be sure to bookmark this page!). Here’s what we know so far…

Ring and Prime Day: What to Expect

Ring’s security cameras have exploded in popularity ever since their breakout Ring Video Doorbell Cam pretty much rewrote the rules of home security about a decade ago.2 Their devices are meant to work together as a “Ring of Security,” powered by Amazon, and a relatively easy way to build a smart home. It’s no accident that we’ve consistently rated Ring our top pick in our best overall security camera roundup.

Though they certainly aren’t without their flaws – some folks aren’t thrilled with Ring cameras’ boxy design, particularly in the Ring Spotlight Cam – they continue to deliver the industry-leading performance and ease of use I’ve long admired about Ring, as well as a strong adherence to DIY and user friendliness.

Ring’s Floodlight Camera is another standout you’ll want to keep your eyes on in the lead-up to Prime Day. This camera boasts a pair of ultra-strong LED floodlights that made a perfect fixture for backyards and big outdoor spaces when I recently tested the Ring Floodlight Camera.

While it’s a bit steep at $249, I always say you get what you pay for in this business – and Ring Floodlight is a good one to pay for. And now, there’s even more reason to spring for a Ring Floodlight Cam: It just got a sweet design upgrade.

Yes, that’s right. Starting in May, Ring will start shipping pre-orders for the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro – a cleaner, glossier version of the (above pictured) original Ring Floodlight. It also adds 3D to its motion detection and HDR for video quality, so in theory you’ll get sharper images that can make sense of finer detail, which can help you contextualize the scene and get lots of coverage on your property.

For now, the Floodlight Wired Pro is priced the same as the original, but again, with Prime Day being held earlier than ever, it’s always wise to keep checking for more developments on Ring’s new and improved floodlight cam.

For another versatile option, I’ve long recommended the compact Ring Stick Up Cam, which normally retails for $100.

But as the date draws near, the discounts appear to be growing; currently, you can own a Stick Up Cam for $85, and there’s sure to be more where that came from.

While it might not seem like much, remember that a $15 savings on home security equipment is ideal when you’re trying to buy several cameras at once. This happens to be one of Stick Up Cam’s biggest strengths – it’s great for buying as a package and keeping several of them around your home.

As an alternative to Ring, Blink cameras represent a slimmer, more basic alternative for folks who want an Amazon-backed camera without Ring’s prices or boxy build.

FYI: Want to learn more about Amazon’s other camera brand, Blink? Visit our hands-on review of the full Blink camera suite here. And check out Blink’s latest Prime Day deals.

But when comparing Ring to Blink, I always like to note that Blink cameras have mostly basic features. So you won’t get the same quality of a Ring camera, but performance-wise, you’ll likely be quite pleased.

So that about wraps it up for Prime Day 2021 deals on Ring Cameras. Again, keep checking back, as this resource will be updated with the best Prime Day discounts as the big day nears.
