Ring's equipment selection extends beyond security cameras into a full-fledged security system with professional monitoring. You'll need to pay for the Ring Protect Pro plan (about $20 a month) to use the monitoring service—it even includes the perks from Ring's cheaper, camera-only plans.
With a Ring Alarm system, you can add door sensors, motion detectors, and smart locks that aren't usually compatible with Ring security cameras. Ring Alarm is also a great way to use Z-Wave devices with your Amazon Echo, which supports only Zigbee smart devices. Ring also sells quite a few smart lighting options for enhancing your yard's security and landscaping design at night.
We're also big fans of how many accessories Ring sells for its security cameras, like various mounting brackets, spare batteries, power cords, solar panels, and wireless doorbell chimes.
