Amazon hosts Prime Day, but it’s also an active participant. The company has slashed the prices of its Kindles, Fire TV streaming devices, Ring cameras, eero WiFi routers, and more. These gadgets can help you finish your work efficiently and then kick back once the day is over to enjoy your favorite TV shows and movies. Whether you’re treating yourself or want to get a jumpstart on holiday shopping, there’s a little something for everybody in these deals.

Note: You’ll have to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of most of these deals, so be sure you’re signed up before making a purchase.

Ring Video Doorbell $54.99 (was $99.99)



Ring’s Video Doorbell is among the best-known smart home security gadgets and is down to its lowest price ever for Prime Day. The doorbell’s camera can record 1080P video, has a night vision to capture clear images in low-light situations, and a motion sensor to alert you when someone has approached your home. You’ll need to connect this doorbell to a home with preexisting wiring, but battery-powered models are also on sale—see more on that below.

Once the doorbell is installed, you can set it up and manage it using the Ring app. You also have the option to subscribe to the Ring Protect Plan, which comes with cloud storage for your video clips and costs $3.99 per month or $39.99 per year. Nobody likes to think about what to do if a burglary happens, but the Ring Video Doorbell can act as a deterrent and leave you with valuable evidence if someone does happen to get inside.
