While you may be investing in technology to make your home smarter, you may not necessarily be paying as much attention to how tech can make your home more secure. However, Amazon is currently offering Ring Alarm home security systems (opens in new tab) with up to 40% off, with the majority down to all-time low prices, giving you the opportunity to protect your home and its contents for less. The systems come in 5- to 15-piece kits and even bundle in the newest Echo Dot (opens in new tab) at no additional cost. At this price, it's one of the best Ring product deals you can get right now.

The Amazon-owned home security brand is perhaps most well-known for its line of video doorbells (opens in new tab), which also work great with its Alarm security systems. Rather than just protecting your front door, Ring Alarm is a whole home security system with a bunch of smarts. Whichever kit you opt for, Ring Alarm comes with the necessary base station and keypad as well as a variety of motion detectors, door and window contact sensors, range extenders, and even smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, depending on which configuration you pick.

The smallest 5-piece Ring Alarm kit (opens in new tab) is 32% off and includes a window and door contact sensor, range extender and a motion detector for $169. The $204 8-piece kit (opens in new tab) gives you two addition contact sensors and one additional motion detector. Kits in 11-piece (opens in new tab) and 14-piece (opens in new tab) sizes are down to their lowest prices ever with yet more sensors, and you can save $55 (not to mention the value of the Echo Dot) on the largest 15-piece Ring Alarm system (opens in new tab) that includes the base station, keypad, seven contact sensors, two motion detectors, as well as a range extender, smoke and carbon monoxide sensor, flood and freeze sensor, and even a panic button.

You'll be able to use these system to get instant alerts for a variety of things including when doors or windows are left open or when the system detects motion in your home. You can monitor it all from your iOS or Android phone or tablet. It's easy to setup, requiring no extra tools or professionals. If you already have other Ring products, they can all communicate with each other and you can continue to add more sensors to your setup over time. You can also use your bundled Echo Dot to easily check or change the status of your alarm. Read more about it in our review.
