Amazon and Ring Celebrate Acquisition with $99.99 Ring Video Doorbell Deal

Amazon cut the price of Ring to under $100.

The Ring Video doorbell is $99.99 on amazon.com. The deal saves 25% over the previous cost. The deal is in celebration of the announcement that the Amazon acquisition of Ring is complete. You can order the Ring doorbell at the reduced price now, but the shipment is delayed to April 23 for the silver color.

The dark-colored Ring doorbell is also on sale for $99.99 and ships April 22 on amazon.com. The gold colored Ring doorbell model already ships April 17. Shipment deals might increase as this deal is pretty tempting and Amazon will move a lot of these video doorbells today. The Ring doorbell is already the bestseller in Tools & Home Improvement.

Amazon announced the Ring deal in February. The two companies will work together to accelerate Ring’s mission to reduce crime in neighborhoods with affordable, effective home security products and services, so more customers can see, hear, and speak to people on their property from anywhere. The aggressive pricing is a move against the recently introduced Nest Hello video doorbell. Amazon wants to be the market leader for video doorbells.

“Our mission to reduce crime in neighborhoods has been at the core of everything we do at Ring,” said Jamie Siminoff, CEO and Chief Inventor of Ring. “Together with Amazon, we will accelerate our mission dramatically by connecting more neighbors globally and making our security devices and systems more affordable and accessible. The entire Ring team is excited to continue working hard to create products and services that bring real benefits to people’s lives and build safer communities for all our neighbors.”

Ring’s Video Doorbell has been effective in reducing burglaries in neighborhoods by as much as 55 percent, according to an LAPD pilot program. Now, with Amazon’s aim to deliver premium products at non-premium prices, the two companies can help make peace of mind at home a reality for more neighbors than ever before.

“Ring’s talented team has invented home security products and services that customers love. We’re excited about their work, their products and their mission, and look forward to teaming together to keep delighting customers,” said Dave Limp, SVP of Amazon Devices and Services. “And this is just the beginning—we will continue to move quickly and work hard to empower customers with a suite of security solutions that provide an affordable, effective way to secure homes and neighborhoods.”

Amazon’s relationship with Ring began in 2016 through the Alexa Fund, the company’s investment arm to support companies with cutting-edge technologies that are innovating with voice. The investment provided a strong foundation for Ring to be able to lean into new Alexa APIs and capabilities, and develop a new Alexa skill that allows customers to use voice to view camera feeds directly from Echo Show and Fire TV.

Neighbors experience the power and impact of the Ring Video Doorbell every day. Ring has contributed to keeping neighborhoods and neighbors safer—from helping people with disabilities more easily see who’s at the door and respond, to helping prevent activities like package theft or home burglaries.

Customers can now choose from a large selection of home security products, cameras, and solutions under the Amazon umbrella, including:

Ring Video Doorbells

Ring Spotlight Cams

Ring Floodlight Cams

Ring Accessories

Blink XT Indoor/Outdoor Camera

Blink Indoor Security Camera

Blink Accessories

Amazon Cloud Cam

Ring, Blink, and Amazon Cloud Cam will continue operations under their respective brands. Customers will not experience any interruption in service and can contact the appropriate company’s customer service team with any questions or issues.
