While the Ring Video Doorbell 3 is a great way to keep an eye on everything going on outside of your house, what if you have an apartment?
Enter the Ring Peephole Cam, an Amazon’s Choice and just $80 right now—a sweet $100 off and the lowest price we’ve seen. Like many of its smart siblings, the new home security cam delivers high-definition video, top-of-the-line motion detection and seamless syncing with your phone, but for apartment-dwellers and condo owners.
To sweeten the deal, Amazon is even throwing in a free Echo Dot. That’s a $50 value! Plus, you’ll get free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime. Not a member? Sign up for a free 30-day trial now. Otherwise, shipping is free on orders of $25 or more.
Let’s take a look (or shall we say peep)
Powered with a rechargeable battery (it runs for about six months before needing more juice), the Ring Peephole Cam provides a 24/7 HD video stream of everything going on outside your door. It features two-way talk, so you can speak to whoever’s at the door without physically answering it.
It’s easy to install—no drilling or wiring necessary. Simply sync the device with your phone, tablet, laptop and streaming device via the Ring app and you’re good to go. The Ring Peephole Cam is compatible with Android and iOS phones and tablets, Echo Show and Echo Spot devices and Windows 10 and MacOS laptops. It even works for the Fire TV.
It even works as a doorbell too. “Great for apartments,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Video quality is great during the day or night, and we can view from our phones or on our TV with our Fire TV stick. It also sounds a chime on our Echo Dot when anyone rings the door bell or knocks on our door.”
Motion detection and night vision
A customizable motion detection system can alert you to anyone who sets foot near your home. You’ll also get an alert when anyone knocks. Infrared night vision keeps you covered at night.
“Being renters, we appreciate an option that doesn't require any wiring or drilling of new holes,” added a delighted shopper. “The peephole is far clearer and has a wider view than the one that was in our door, and the motion detection is accurate.”
The Echo Dot, one of the best mini smart home hubs out there, is a fine addition to the Ring Peephole Cam, especially for hands-free navigation and voice commands via Alexa. It even doubles as a Bluetooth speaker, so you can stream your favorite music and podcasts via Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music and much more.
