Right now Amazon has a great deal featuring a Ring Video Doorbell Pro and the Amazon Echo Show 5 on sale for $179. Both items are certified refurbished and work like new. If you were to buy these individually refurbished, the Ring video doorbell would cost you $180 by itself. The Echo Show 5 goes for around $60 as a refurb, so you're saving $60 just compared to that. Brand new versions of the Ring device and the Echo Show 5 would run you almost $320.
These two devices make a great pairing. The Echo Show 5 has a 5.5-inch compact display and Alexa built right in. You can use it to control your entire smart home, but you can also use Alexa to check in on your Ring device and see who's at the door. Thanks to the Video Doorbell Pro's built-in speakers and mic, you can talk to visitors without leaving your kitchen. You can also get alerts sent straight to your device any time the Ring Video Doorbell Pro detects motion or someone rings the doorbell.
Outside of checking on the front door, there are plenty of other things you can do with the Echo Show 5. Manage your calendar, make to-do lists, get updates on the weather, traffic, or news, and even cook along with recipes. Use the display to watch your favorite shows, listen to the radio, or keep up with the latest audiobooks and podcasts.
The Video Doorbell Pro will replace your existing hardwired doorbell, and it comes with one of four different colored faceplates so you can match the exterior of your home. Then you just leave it there! The Pro is designed to work in any temperature with an operating range between -5 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
The camera has a 160-degree field of view that covers a huge space in front of your door. It can record in 1080p resolutions for crystal clear video, and there are integrated infrared LEDs so you can still see who's at the door even at night. The video that gets transmitted is extra secure, too, thanks to bank-grade encryptions.
