Get a Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Dot for just £44 in bonkers Black Friday deal
Ring doorbells and Echo Dot speakers are among the most popular smart home devices, and we’ve always thought they offered good value for money. But get this… a Ring and Echo Dot bundle has tumbled below half price on both Amazon and John Lewis, down to a ridiculously cheap £44.
Yes, £44. For not one but two of the best smart home devices you can buy. Both amazingly easy to set up, and with a ton of useful features including live video from your doorstep and voice control via Alexa.
The offer isn’t quite the same on each site. Amazon’s offer is a one-click bundle (previously £88.99). At John Lewis, the Ring Smart Video Doorbell is £34 (down £15) and comes with a checkout code to add the Echo Dot for just £10.
If you only want the doorbell OR the Dot, you’re best off sticking with Amazon, where the Ring’s solo price has dropped to £28.23. The Echo Dot is £18.99 on its own from Amazon, £20 off its usual price of £39.99.
So, what exactly are these devices?
The Ring Smart Video Doorbell in the Amazon and John Lewis Black Friday bundles is the wired model. It works with the free Ring app (for iOS, Android and FireOS) to send you instant alerts on your phone whenever someone presses your doorbell or triggers its built-in motion sensor. You can see, hear and speak to visitors via your phone (or PC), and control by voice using Alexa.
The doorbell is strong as well as smart. It’s weather-resistant, operates day and night thanks to night vision, has a 155-degree field of view with 1080p HD resolution, and encrypts your data to ensure privacy.
The Echo Dot in both the Amazon and John Lewis deals is the 3rd generation of this fabulous little speaker, one of our favourite smart speakers ever. In our five-star review we loved its audio quality, stylish design and seamless Alexa support.
Both devices are really easy to set up, and you can even buy an adapter to make the Ring work with your existing doorbell if you want. Two smart home superstars for under £45? That really is a steal.
