Amazon is already running Black Friday sales on Ring, Echo, and Fire TV devices #Breaking112
Black Friday is still a week out. But as we’ve seen year after year, deals start before anyone’s even begun cooking their Turkey.
And Amazon wasted no time this year, as we’re already seeing steep discounts on many smart home devices.
Ring, the maker of video doorbells, smart lighting and connected alarm systems has a slew of deals available to shop right now. As we’ve been spending more time at home this year, it might have you thinking about some upgrades you can make.
What better place to start then at your front door? Ring’s Video Doorbell 3, highlighted by 1080pHD video quality, night vision and pre-roll video is currently discounted, alongside the Video Doorbell Pro, which has to be hardwired, and the Peephole Cam, which replaces the non-smart peephole.
Here are the current Ring doorbell deals:
- Peephole Cam ($69.99, originally $129.99; amazon.com)
- Video Doorbell 2nd Gen ($69.99, originally $99.99; amazon.com)
- Video Doorbell 3 with Echo Show 5 ($149.99, originally $289.98; amazon.com)

Our favorite feature is that they integrate with your other Ring devices. For instance, if you have one set up in the front hall it can be triggered by an outdoor camera to turn on. You can even set schedules for the A19 bulb. They’ll connect to your Wi-Fi and the larger Ring ecosystem via the Bridge as well.
Here are all the deals:
If you need larger bulbs for a bigger fixture, Ring also makes PAR38 bulbs with all the same smarts. A two-pack of PAR38 with the Bridge is just $48.99, down from $69.99 at Amazon.
And the deals don’t stop with individual bulbs. Ring’s popular battery-powered Pathlights are also seeing discounts:
If you’re looking for outdoor lights that can recharge themselves, Ring offers a plethora of lighting solutions with solar power rays built in, a few of which are currently discounted:
- Solar Steplight ($22.99, originally $29.99; amazon.com)
- Two Solar Steplights and a Bridge ($59.99, originally $79.99; amazon.com)
- Solar Pathlight ($24.49, originally $34.49; amazon.com)
- Four Solar Pathlights and a Bridge ($111.99, originally $159.99; amazon.com)
- Solar Floodlight and a Bridge ($76.99, originally $109.99; amazon.com)
It’s important to remember that a single Ring Bridge can support a maximum of 50 lights. If you have more than 50, you’ll need another Bridge. Currently, they’re discounted to just $19.99, down from $49.99.
Last but not least, Ring Alarm is seeing discounts in nearly every configuration possible. Ring Alarm is a no-contract security system that you can really customize. There are base packs that include the panel and a bundle of sensors. The rest of the devices in the Ring Ecosystem — like the Video Doorbell, Cams and even lights — can be fully integrated into the Alarm system.
Here are the deals on Ring Alarm:
If you’re looking for a smart speaker, Amazon has savings on select Echo devices as well. The 3rd Generation Echo Dot is just $29.99, down from $39.99. That’s 25% off for a speaker that delivers instant access to Alexa.
The entry-level Fire TV Stick Lite is the cheapest way to add some smarts to your television. Amazon rolled out this entry-point earlier this fall and it’s now discounted to just $17.99, down from $29.99. It plugs directly into the HDMI port on the back of your TV and delivers content at full HD. Like the more expensive Fire TV sticks, this gives you access to thousands of streaming services with the tap of a button.
Along with the discount on the Lite, the Fire TV Stick is down to $27.99, down 30% from its original $39.99 price.

You can pair any of these Fire TV streaming devices with a Recast, which is ssentially a smart DVR with plenty of storage for storing local content. The 500GB Fire TV Recast is just $129.99, down from $229.99.
And if you’re looking for a simple smart TV, the 32” Fire TV Edition fits the bill at $119.99. With the brains of a Fire TV stick inside, you get instant access to thousands of streaming services like HBO Max, Netflix, Prime Video and countless others out of the box.
