The Ring video doorbell and Spot are being offered as a bundle for $278, about $100 less than their normal combined price. The Spot is a new favorite of mine thanks to its compact size and screen to see whatever it is you’re looking for, whether its the news, a music video, or an instruction guide for pitching a tent. It’s also the perfect accessory for the Ring video doorbell, as you can use it to see who is at your front door from anywhere in the house.
The Ring doorbell is a must in this day and age, as it allows you to communicate with those outside your home, from deliverymen to unwanted visitors, without ever opening your door. And you can control it all using the Spot or your cell phone.
One of the best bundles is the Echo Show and Cloud Cam, on sale for $300. The Show is one of the best new Amazon devices and lets you see anything you need, whether you want to look up fun facts or watch the news. And paired with the Cloud Cam you can use it to monitor any room or area the camera is.
For those looking to see what is happening in their home on their TV screen, this bundle is sure to put a smile on your face. On sale for $200 you get a camera and Firce Cube streaming box. So you can stream the latest content and then switch over to see what is happening in your kid’s room with a simple voice command.
The new Echo Show is similar to other Echo products in that it has Alexa and is voice controlled but has one huge difference; it has a screen. This means that it can show you things just as easily as it can tell you. And, even better, the deal on the Echo Show is $100 off.
With the Echo, Alexa can help you every morning by telling you how the weather is like, play your favorite music, and control your smart home devices.
Amazon’s very own Echo Dot will have its own deal on Prime Day: $15 (the lowest I have ever seen). That means that at the regular price of $50 you would get a brand new Echo Dot for nearly half price.
Talk about awesome. The Echo Dot is the little brother to the Amazon Echo and provides access to Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, and all of her skills like playing music, controlling smart home devices, and much more.
Moving out of the Echosystem, we have a security camera from Funlux that will <strongprotect your home like it never has been protected before.
