Ring is 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 taking a leading role during the Prime Day Early Access Sale, which started October 11 and runs through October 12.

The Latest Deals on Ring Cameras for Prime Day

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. 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.

Ring started the Early Access Sale with huge markdowns on its Floodlight Cam and Indoor Cam prices. Additionally, bundles are available for those looking to buy more than one Ring product for their home security.

Here are the best deals we found:

  • Get the Floodlight Cam Wired Plus for $139.99, $60 less than its original price.
  • Pair the Floodlight Cam Wired Plus with an Echo Show 5 for $149.99, 47 percent less than the original bundle price.
  • Add a Ring Indoor Cam to an eight-piece Ring Alarm kit for $234.98. The original price is $299.99.
  • Add a Ring Indoor Cam and Echo Show 5 to an eight-piece Ring Alarm kit for $234.98, a 39% discount.

We should also mention that there are deals on certified refurbished Ring Stick Up Cams. Given the dismal savings amount ($15 off the price of a new one), we suggest sticking to a brand new Ring camera when the sale starts.

Another thing to keep in mind: If you want to be an early adopter of Ring technology, keep an eye out for the Ring Spotlight Cam Plus and Spotlight Cam Pro, both of which are in pre-order stage and will ship starting October 26. The Ring Spotlight Cam Plus costs $199, while the Pro version costs $229.

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.

FYI: The newly released Spotlight Cam Plus and Pro both feature a slightly slimmer design than the original Spotlight Cam. In addition, the Pro version adds 3D Motion Detection with Bird’s Eye View, one of the Ring Floodlight Cam Pro’s most premium features.

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.

For another versatile option, I’ve long recommended the compact Ring Stick Up Cam, which normally retails for $100. This camera is a solid indoor/outdoor camera. It’s not too big, meaning it likely won’t clash with your interior design if you place it indoors, but it’s also rugged enough to go outside as long as it’s far from direct rain or sunlight.

The Takeaway

We love Ring security cameras because they’re versatile, easy to use, and affordable, and Prime Day October is a great opportunity to pick up these reliable cameras for less. Whether you’re new to Ring, or an existing Ring user who wants to upgrade their home security, you should take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day Early Access Sale to save money while adding some of the best cameras in the market to your home security.

In addition to Ring, though, check out Blink cameras. Blink is another brand owned by Amazon, but compared to Ring, it offers fewer camera options. On the upside, though, Blink is even more affordable. Both Ring and Blink are slashing their prices, alongside Amazon’s Alexa devices.
