Today’s top Ring deals - the biggest savings on video doorbells, alarm kits, security cameras, and more

Our edit of today’s best Ring deals - save up to 50% on Ring’s best-selling home security systems

When you put so much time and money into making your house a home, you want to protect your investment. Thankfully, today’s top Ring deals can help you keep an eye on everything from your front door to your outdoor garden space. 

Ring is known for creating the original video doorbell - one of the best video doorbells on the market today. Invented by Jamie Siminoff in 2013, his wife coined it a 'caller ID for your front door.’ And after the company was acquired by Amazon in 2018, it has since grown into the ultimate one-stop shop for smart home security. 

But while this Amazon acquisition has taken the company from strength to strength, the market is now overloaded with Ring products - from video doorbells to floodlight cams and even full-house alarm systems. Because of this, it can be easy to spend more than you realistically need on Ring products. That’s where these deals and discounts can help. 

We’ve prioritised these Ring deals based on our own tried and tested experience with the products, focusing on the most affordable retailers to stock the brand. So, read on to snap up the best Ring deals to protect your house and save money at the same time.

Ring shopping advice

One quick look online, and you’ll see that there are so many Ring home security products available. While it’s pretty easy to determine whether you need the intercom system or a floodlight camera for your garden, finding the right doorbell can be a minefield. After all, there are so many of them. 

So, we’d suggest comparing the different doorbell options and looking into the specifics of the following: 

The generation: When making the most of a Ring doorbell deal, you’ll see that different Ring doorbells have different names. For example, Ring Video Doorbell (1st Gen) or Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Gen). The difference in names essentially means that there’s a difference in the products. The different generations have different features, so we’d suggest comparing them against each other to see which features suit you and your home best. 

The installation: Ring video doorbells come in three options: battery-powered, hard-wired, or both. Which option you choose depends on your home’s circumstances, but it’s important to understand the difference between them. If you want a battery-powered Ring doorbell, you’ll cut down on general energy costs but need to buy a charging station. If you opt for hard-wired, however, you know that the doorbell will never run out of battery. 

The subscription cost: While the best Ring doorbell deal can save you money on the price of the product itself, Ring comes with optional subscription costs that allow you to record and store the alerts. At the time of writing, Ring Basic (which covers one device) will set you back £4.99 a month. If you want to cover your whole house (and an unlimited number of devices), it’ll be £8 a month. 

When to shop

Ring deals run throughout the year, but there's no doubt that most major retailers use key times of the year to plan their promotions. Below, we've explained more about these major dates and what this means for the best Ring deals. 

Amazon Prime Day Ring deals

Amazon Prime Day, the brand's yearly price-slashing event, seems to get bigger and bigger each year. This can result in some unmissable Prime Day Ring deals. Especially as Amazon owns Ring. 

In 2023, Prime Day Ring deals ran from July 11th to July 12th, with many customers choosing to update their home security in time for the darker winter months. 

However, Amazon then treated us all to a second Prime Day from October 10th to 11th, which was a great time to scoop up some end-of-summer Ring discounts on indoor cameras and full home security alarm kits. 

Exact dates for this year's Prime Day are still to be confirmed, but it's always a good idea to keep an eye on our Amazon Prime Day deals page to be the first to hear when they're announced. 

In the meantime, you could sign up for Amazon Prime membership now, so you're all set to shop when the next Prime Day Ring deals take place. Generally, you need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the biggest discounts on Prime Day. You can sign up or renew your membership below. Usually, new Prime members can also access a free 30-day membership trial to test out its perks.

Bank holiday Ring deals

In recent years, bank holiday deals have well and truly become part of the consumer discount calendar, with many retailers choosing to slice the prices of their products on these days - and the days running up to these bank holidays. This is especially true in July and August when consumer spending often increases.

In fact, those who are looking for the best bank holiday Ring deals should be able to snap up some serious bargains on these summer bank holidays. And it could be the perfect time to perfect your outdoor security while the evenings are still light. 

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Ring deals

The term 'Black Friday' originated in the US to denote the first day following Thanksgiving when retailers would cut prices to draw holidaymakers to shop their store's sales. Driven by global brands, the price-slashing event soon crossed the pond, and now Black Friday – closely followed by Cyber Monday – has become one of the UK's biggest consumer extravaganzas, rivalling traditional Boxing Day sales. 

Often hailed as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday always falls on the last Friday of November, so the next time it will officially roll around is Friday 29th November 2024.

That said, in recent years, the event has spread to encompass more than just one day, with retailers starting Black Friday discounting earlier and earlier so that a full Black Friday 'week' of discounts isn't uncommon. In fact, in 2022, we saw retailers running Black Friday promotions throughout the whole month of November, and the same happened in 2023. Black 'month' now seems to be a thing.

Whether or not you agree with the rampant consumerism Black Friday has now come to represent, there's no denying it can be a great time for Black Friday Ring deals and Cyber Monday Ring deals.

Last year, Black Friday Ring deals were a dime a dozen, with many different retailers slashing the price of their smart home security to give homeowners extra peace of mind. This year, we expect them to be even bigger and better. 

We'll be keeping our eye out for all this year's top Black Friday Ring deals and Cyber Monday Ring deals right here, but make sure to bookmark the Ideal Home Black Friday home deals page to get alerts for all the biggest Black Friday homeware sales as they launch.

Boxing Day Ring deals

If leaving your home unattended for hours or days on end over the Christmas period left you unnerved, taking advantage of the Boxing Day Ring deals could give you peace of mind and save you money at the same time. 

You can almost guarantee that every Ring stockist will slash the prices of bestselling Ring products and accessories at this time of year, so it’s a great time to pick up a bargain.

January Ring deals

By the time January comes around, the Ring doorbell deals should still be in full force. Retailers will be taking advantage of the darker nights and upcoming spring and summer holidays to push this smart home security, and the Ring discounts are certainly a worthwhile investment.

Why should I buy a Ring doorbell?

Video doorbells have three main purposes – to let you know when you have a visitor, to allow you to communicate with these visitors, and to also act as a security camera for your property. 

Everything can be monitored through an app on your phone, which means that it's never been easier to keep track of your home. This comes in handy if you're not at home or can't get to the door for any reason. 

It also helps you keep tabs on your home. If the camera captures a potential intruder, you'll be able to warn them off or at least record them in the act of trying to break in.

Is Ring useless without subscription?

This all depends on your wants and needs. Without a Ring subscription, you can use the devices in real-time, but you won’t be able to record or store the alerts that pop up on the devices. This could work for someone who simply wants to answer the door to delivery drivers while they’re at work.

However, if you’re serious about your home security, want to keep tabs on the comings-and-goings around your house, and have the ability to record alerts, you really do need a Ring subscription.
