Amazon Sidewalk is a low-bandwidth shared network for devices like trackers and motion sensors to be able to connect to the internet without needing full-fledged Wi-Fi or cellular connections. The connection is intended to emanate from devices you already own, like Echo smart speakers and Ring cameras, which is why it is a bit surprising that Ring appears to be working on a standalone dedicated “Amazon Sidewalk Bridge Pro” device that just appeared in a new Bluetooth regulatory filing last week.

Amazon is offering certain Prime Day Deals only if you order through Alexa via voice commands. These deals must be ordered through an Alexa device, like an Echo or Fire TV, to get the lowest possible price. You can also order by voice using the Alexa app for iOS or Android phones. Currently, there are only 5 Alexa-exclusive deals, but, during previous Prime Days, Amazon has cycled new deals in and old deals out throughout the day, so keep an eye on this page for the latest Alexa-exclusive deals. I’ll keep an updated list of current and past deals here as well. Read more ›

Get this Floodlight Camera + Echo Dot Deal
The Ring Floodlight Security Camera is on sale for $189.99 and it comes with a free 3rd-gen Echo Dot. It features a motion-activated camera that will turn on the lights as well when its dark, a siren, and two-way talking through a built-in mic and speaker. This is the first time that it has ever been priced this low. Strangely, only the White version is this price with the free Echo Dot. The Black version on its own is also $189.99, but it does not include a free Echo Dot.
Get this Ring + Dot Deal
Best Buy currently has a great deal on the Ring Video Doorbell 2 with Echo Dot 3 for $139.99. This sale is essentially two different deals that happen to be stacking on top of each other. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 normally costs $199.99. Best Buy has put it on sale for $139.99. However, Amazon is simultaneously including a free Echo Dot 3 with the purchase of this Ring Doorbell, both at Amazon and other retailers like Best Buy. So, Best Buy’s sale on the Doorbell and Amazon’s free Echo Dot stack to get you this great deal. When you added the doorbell to your Best Buy cart, you’ll automatically see the free Echo Dot appear at checkout. Also worth considering is the Ring Spotlight Camera 2-Pack for $249.99. That pack is $100 off the regular price. You have to be logged into a Best Buy accout to see these prices.
Best buy is currently offering a very interesting bundle. They are selling an Amazon Echo Spot + Ring Doorbell Pro + 6 Month Plex Pass Subscription for $204.99. Purchased separately, those three items have a retail value of $399.97. If you just consider the current Prime Day prices for the Echo Spot and Ring Doorbell, you are still paying $274 for the pair, so this deal saves you $70 off of Amazon’s current sale prices. To get this deal, follow this link, check the box next to the Ring Doorbell and next to the Echo Spot color you want and click the Add to Cart button at the bottom. The Plex subscription will automatically b added to your cart.
Amazon has put Security Cameras from Blink, Ring, and Amazon on sale for Prime Day. The best deal of the bunch is the Amazon Cloud Cam for $59.99. At 50% off the camera’s regular price, this is the new lowest price that this camera has ever been. Amazon offers free 24 hour cloud storage for their cameras and very well priced plans that start at $6.99 per month if you need more storage with extra smart features like person detection and zone monitoring.

Amazon has closed their acquisition of Ring, a smart home hardware company best known for their video doorbell. To celebrate, they’ve lowered the price of the standard Ring Video Doorbell to $99.99. The retail price of the doorbell was previously $179.99, however, Amazon currently lists it as having an old price of $132.99, which is around the price it sold for during the last few months. The new price matches the lowest price it has ever been in the past, which occurred during this past Black Friday. The doorbell being discounted is Ring’s first doorbell. None of Ring’s other product prices, such as their 2nd generation doorbell or Pro doorbell, are being lowered. Ring, much like Amazon’s recent acquisition of Blink, will continue to operate as an independent company, but it’s probably safe to expect to see deeper integration with Amazon’s other products and services in the near future.
