You’ll never regret getting extra security for your home—but you might regret overpaying. Smart home video doorbells can be expensive, plus many have hidden monthly service fees. If you’re looking to avoid the sneaky costs, we’ve got you covered.

Enter the eufy Security Wi-Fi Video Doorbell, a smart home security device that doesn’t include any fees after purchase and it’s on sale at Amazon for just $117—$43 off.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The eufy Security Wi-Fi Video Doorbell offers 2K resolution and HDR (High Dynamic Range) for crystal-clear viewing on your phone or tablet. “This is what a video doorbell should be. The video fills up the entire screen on my iPhone 11 Pro Max,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Lots of other options you can set and the doorbell works with Alexa and Echo Show. I am very impressed with this eufy doorbell cam. I just returned two Ring Pro doorbells that just did not work well.”

Most video doorbells (we’re looking at you Ring and Arlo) don’t allow you to record on the device itself, instead opting to store footage in the cloud (which ends up being an additional cost). However, the eufy features 4GB of on-board storage, so you can record and store absolutely free.

You can also use the two-way speaker system to talk to visitors via the eufy app, even if you’re out grabbing lunch. The sophisticated algorithm ensures you’ll only get a notification when it detects the presence of a human (instead of alerting you to every time a stray dog or cat comes to your doorstep).

Another delighted shopper added, “This thing has been a phenomenal experience. It catches virtually everyone that comes near the front porch, which mostly just means deliveries, but occasionally delivers entertainment courtesy of the neighbors' cat and the children trying to catch her...”

The bundle comes with a free electronic bell chime, complete with volume control and eight fun ringtones.
