If you've been meaning to improve your home-security setup over this long year but never got around to it, don't sweat it. Extra-credit projects have fallen by the wayside for lots of people lately. But spring is here, with signs of hope — and fresh opportunities to hit that to-do list and finally begin (or complete) your home-security plan.
Amazon is in major motivation mode at this very moment. Right now, they're offering up to 30 percent off select Ring devices. In case you're not familiar, Ring is the maker of the massively popular, easy-to-use smart-home security items that you're always hearing about, from doorbells to cameras. In this sale, prices start at just $70.

Down from $100 to just $85, the Ring Stick Up Cam is an all-weather camera that connects to your smartphone, tablet or laptop via the Ring app. It's happy outdoors or in and can stand on its own or mount on a wall; adhesives and mounting brackets are included. Setup on your phone takes minutes. Then you have an instant feed — and an eye on your belongings —whenever you want. Image quality is stellar, and battery life is up to four weeks per charge.
"All I can say is wow," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "Bought this camera, as we believe someone is scaring our dog while she is outside...and it's been a total game changer. We have the doorbell one out front and this security cam out back of our townhome. The picture quality both day and night is superior...I'm super impressed with the night vision and am also loving the much larger battery which is lasting way longer. The videos are crystal clear and would have no issues catching anyone causing problems..."
The Ring Stick Up Cam features a sophisticated motion detection and night vision system that notifies you when triggered. It even has two-way talk, so you can, say, ask the delivery person to leave your package around back right from your phone—while you're in the basement elbow-deep in laundry!
The Ring Video Doorbell 2 has a full HD video feed with a wide viewing angle — so it can show all the activity in front of your home. The video stream is accessible by smartphone, tablet or laptop. Wherever you are — at work, the supermarket, or just in the backyard — you can see who's at the door. The two-way talk feature even allows you to chat with anyone who comes a-knockin'.
"This blew away my expectations for a used item," wrote a savvy shopper. "From the packaging to its physical condition, I couldn't tell that this wasn't a brand new Ring doorbell. Installation was super easy as well — very convenient that all the installation tools (and extra faceplates) are already included in the box."
Amazon is offering the pre-owned Ring Video Doorbell 2 for just $70, down from $100 — that's 30 percent off. Don't let the "pre-owned" tag deter you. Amazon has rigorously tested the device before making it available for re-sale, and it comes with the same accessories and in-box documentation as new devices — plus a 30-day money-back guarantee. It looks and works like new, but maybe has a couple of cosmetic imperfections.
