9to5Toys Specials currently has the Ring™ Video Doorbell for $189 with free shipping using $10 off coupon code: ring9t05 at checkout (Tax in CA). That’s $40 off the original price and the lowest price we can find it. It lets you see who is on your front step via a live video stream on your phone. We reviewed it very positively on 9to5mac and it gets 4/5 star reviews at Amazon where it is $10 more expensive with tax in more states.
It’s nice to know who is on the other side of the door before you open it, but the Wi-Fi streaming is also great for when you’re away from home. The Ring™ Doorbell has motion detection and two-way audio, so it knows when someone is there, and it lets you tell the delivery guy to leave the package somewhere suitable. The video is available on both iOS and Android devices, and it is 720p quality. Optionally, you can record the video clips for later viewing (one year of this service is included in the deal). Installation is pretty easy, and the Doorbell can run on battery for 12 months at a time.
