Up to 52% off home security systems bundles from Ring
What began originally as a 20th anniversary celebration for Amazon1 in 2015 has ballooned into one of the most highly anticipated shopping events of the year, considered a sort of “Christmas in July” for the behemoth retailer.
Year after year, Amazon smashes its own records in terms of Prime Day sales. Last year, for instance, Prime members saved a total of over $1.7 billion during the two-day event, the highest in all of Prime Day history.
Tech gadgets are almost always the leading purchases during Prime Day, and they often offer the biggest savings. As such, Prime Day undoubtedly presents a great opportunity to enjoy discounts on the best home automation security systems and top-rated security cameras.
With all that in mind, let’s talk about all the ways we can save on security systems on Prime Day 2023, particularly the Amazon-owned Ring Alarm as well as other security systems available on Amazon.
When Is Prime Day 2023?
Prime Day 2023 is underway. The two-day event started on July 11 and runs until July 12.
This may not be the last Prime Day of the year, however. Last year, for the first time ever, Amazon hosted the Prime Early Access Sale in October. It was widely considered a “second Prime Day,” although it was technically an early holiday sale for Prime members.
For now, let’s focus on the present, the Prime Day 2023 sale.
What Discounts Are Available Now?
Amazon has been dropping deals here and there since the first week of July, but now that Prime Day 2023 is here, Amazon upped the intensity of its special offers. Right now, you can save anywhere from 30-percent to 60-percent on DIY security systems available from Amazon.
Unfortunately, not all security systems can be found on Amazon. We’re mainly tracking and reporting on DIY home security brands like SimpliSafe, Ring, abode, and Frontpoint, and these are their best deals.
- Ring Alarm: Ring Alarm kits are available for up to 40-percent off.
- Ring Alarm Pro: Another Ring security system, the Ring Alarm Pro features a hub that doubles as an eero router. Ring Alarm Pro is a tad pricier than Ring Alarm, but you can get it for up to 30-percent off right now.
- Ring Alarm and Alarm Pro bundles: You can save more if you bundle Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro with Ring video and security cameras or Amazon Echo devices. Discounts up to 60-percent are up for grabs.
- SimpliSafe: Outside the Amazon branding, you can buy a SimpliSafe security system and enjoy 40-percent off with on-going Prime-exclusive discounts.
There aren’t a lot of home security system Prime Day deals right now, but keep in mind that there are other ways to strengthen your home security while taking advantage of Amazon’s biggest sale of the year. You can look for security camera Prime Day deals or video doorbell Prime Day deals – there are a lot more offers available on those fronts.
You may also want to check out bundles, such as from brands like Ring that offer both security systems and cameras. For example, there’s a Ring bundle that includes a five-piece Ring Alarm, a Stick Up Cam, and a Ring Video Doorbell for 44-percent off the retail price. You can take advantage of such bundles to improve your overall home security in one shot.

Improve Your Home Security This Prime Day 2023
Not a lot of security systems are available on Amazon, so we don’t have a lot of brands to keep an eye on. That being said, installing a security system isn’t the only way to bolster your home security. A smart home system may also help you manage your day-to-day life better and improve how your home reacts to security incidents. For example, smart lights linked to your security system can deter burglars.
We suggest staying on the lookout for smart home deals. Amazon launched a new generation of Echo Dot speakers last year, and then followed it up with the smaller and cheaper Echo Pop. Keep an eye on those two lines of smart speakers, along with other Alexa speakers and displays. We hear they’re up to 50-percent off right now, with prices starting at just $18.
Once you have an Alexa speaker (or a Google Home speaker if that’s more your style), you can easily outfit your home with smart devices that work with your Alexa-compatible security system. (Hint: Ring Alarm, SimpliSafe, and abode all work with Alexa.) For more help, here’s our guide to home security systems, which touches on smart home integrations as well.
Why Shop on Amazon Prime Day?
One common theme I’ve found with Prime Day is that it has always been an ideal time to buy home security equipment; items like security cameras, sensors, and the industry’s best home security systems are often marked down during events like this. With several of these items produced by Amazon itself, I don’t think it’s a stretch to expect big savings coming from Ring, Blink, and other Amazon products. In the meantime, check out our latest roundup of Ring’s deals and discounts.
You can also look for savings on new and upcoming items. Ring released a car security camera this year, called the Ring Car Cam, and although we find it quite expensive, Prime Day might just give us a chance to test out this new innovation.
Final Thoughts on Prime Day 2023
Year after year, Prime Day proves itself a great time to purchase either a whole home security system or additional pieces to add to an existing smart home security system. With Prime Day 2023 already turning out to be bigger and more glamorous than ever, don’t miss this opportunity to strengthen your home security while saving a lot of money.
