This discounted Ring Home Security System comes with a free Echo Dot

Smart home gear doesn't just mean easy-to-control lights or hearing the weather from your voice assistants. You can also make your property much more secure thanks to the advances in smart home tech. For example, today Amazon is offering the Ring 5-Piece Home Security System (opens in new tab) for only $169.99, saving you $30 off the usual price and matching its previous best. As an added bonus, you'll get a free Echo Dot with your purchase, which is valued at $50.

This kit includes a base station, contact station, motion detector, keypad, and range extender. Get alerts on your phone when doors and windows open, or when motion is detected. Want to protect yourself from nefarious characters? Need to make sure your grounded teenager isn't sneaking out? Trying to figure out who keeps stealing from the cookie jar? This kit can help you accomplish all of the above and more. Setup is easy and takes only a few minutes, and you can use the included Echo Dot to arm, disarm, and check the status of your system. The kit also plays nicely with other Ring products, and you can add more sensors over time if you wish. Check out Android Central's review for more details.
