Ring has been the biggest name in video doorbells for a while now, and it’s no surprise—its features and functionality are the cream of the crop. Of course, the Ring name comes with a hefty price tag, but a refurbished option can give you all there is to love about Ring at a much lower price. Today, you can get a Certified Refurbished bundle for Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Ring Chime for just $99, down from a combined brand-new list price of $230.
The Chime is essential for any Ring doorbell user, allowing you to get audible doorbell alerts inside the home—very convenient if your phone is in another room or muted. The Chime also serves as a WiFi signal extender that’s 100 percent dedicated to Ring data traffic.
As for the doorbell itself, the Ring Video Doorbell 2 is a solid option and a big improvement over the original Ring Video Doorbell. We like its 1080p video quality and adjustable trigger zones, though in our review from 2018 we noted it was a bit tricky to set up (these issues have since been cleared up). We gave it 4 stars out of 5, noting its improved motion sensors and strong video quality as reasons to buy.
Bottom line: This is a great bundle and extremely attractive at just $99.
