Looking to give your home a connected upgrade? Amazon has just slashed £64.99 off the price of this Ring doorbell and Echo Show 5 bundle, offering both for £99 — a saving of £34.99 per if bought separately.

The Ring video doorbell is the second-gen 2021 model, with Advanced Motion Detection. It streams a crisp 1080p HD video feed which you can view on your smartphone, or the Echo Show display, and boasts improved night vision, to better catch late night visitors on camera. Two-Way Talk also allows you to see, hear, and speak to whoever is at the door.

Installation is straightforward. The Ring video doorbell can be powered via a rechargeable battery, but can also be connected to your existing doorbell wiring.

The Echo Show 5 display included in this bundle is also a 2021 model. If you’ve used an Amazon Echo before, this Show stablemate, with a 5.5-inch touchscreen, does much the same. You can ask Alexa to set a timer when cooking, stream music from Spotify or Amazon Music, play your favourite radio stations, and control other connected gadgets, such as lighting and heating.

New interactive features are being added to Amazon Alexa all the time. Included in the latest round of updates, you can ask Alexa for book recommendations or play an increasing portfolio of casual games.

Significantly, you can also use the Echo Show 5 to stream TV shows and movies from Netflix and Prime Video, if you fancy a quick catch-up while you cook.

The Echo Show also has a built-in 2MP camera that allows you to make video calls, and will work as a digital photo frame, useful for sharing your holiday and family snaps.

If you just want to buy the Echo Show 5, Amazon Prime is currently offering it for £44.99, a saving of £30 on its regular list price.

This smart home pairing is going down well with Amazon buyers, with the Ring doorbell being singled out for its picture quality.

As a security package, this deal is quite the steal.
