Up to 50% off security systems from Ring, SimpliSafe, and abode

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. But the July Prime Day isn’t the only Amazon sale we eagerly await year after year now.

This is the second year in a row that Amazon is hosting its Prime-exclusive sale in October. The company is calling the event Prime Big Deal Days, which runs from October 10 to 11. That’s right, the big sale has officially begun!

Tech gadgets are almost always the leading purchases during Prime Day, and they often offer the biggest savings. As such, Prime Big Deal Days 2023 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, particularly the Amazon-owned Ring Alarm as well as other security systems available on Amazon.

What Security System Discounts Are Available Now?

We’ve been monitoring the Amazon space since the sale started and they’ve certainly brought out the big guns early. We’re talking about massive discounts up to 50-percent off from brands like Ring Alarm, SimpliSafe, and Arlo.

That said, don’t expect to see a lot of security system deals. There’s simply not a lot of security systems available from Amazon. You’ll mostly find DIY security systems, but not professionally installed systems from top-rated brands like ADT and Vivint.

Without further ado, here are the security system deals for the Prime Big Deal Days sale happening now:

  • Ring Alarm: Up to 40-percent off Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro systems, and up to 37-percent off Ring Alarm plus Ring security camera or doorbell bundles. Prices start at $119.99 for the five-piece Ring Alarm system.
  • SimpliSafe: 40- to 50-percent off SimpliSafe security systems. Prices start at $143.99 for the eight-piece SimpliSafe package.
  • abode: Up to 15-percent off abode Smart Security systems. Prices start at $249.99 for the four-piece kit.
  • Arlo: 10-percent off the two-sensor Arlo Home Security System kit, from $199.99 down to $179.99.

Like we said, there aren’t a lot of security systems available from Amazon. However, keep in mind that there are other ways to strengthen your home security while taking advantage of one of Amazon’s biggest sales 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 is a Ring bundle that includes a five-piece Ring Alarm, a Stick Up Cam, and a Ring Video Doorbell for 37-percent off the retail price. That’s another way to enjoy savings and give your home security a boost in one shot.

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. Both of them are around 55-percent off right now. The latter is available for $17.99.

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, Arlo, 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 Big Deal Days?

One common theme we’ve found with Prime Day and Prime Day-like sales 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, and with brands like SimpliSafe and abode joining the fun, you have lots of options to choose from in terms of home security.
