The main difference between the first-generation model and the Video Doorbell 2 is that the latter can capture footage in 1080p HD. The Ring Video Doorbell was the company's first smart doorbell. The aggressive pricing is a move against the recently introduced Nest Hello video doorbell. "We're excited about their work, their products and their mission, and look forward to teaming together to keep delighting customers", said Dave Limp, SVP of Amazon Devices and Services.

Just ask Alexa to show Cloud Cam's live view on your Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Echo Show, or Echo Spot for a quick way to see what's happening in another room. Ring has contributed to keeping neighborhoods and neighbors safer-from helping people with disabilities more easily see who's at the door and respond, to helping prevent activities like package theft or home burglaries. The company's products will be joining a bunch of other smart home devices under the Amazon umbrella, including the company's own Cloud Cam and various devices by one-time competitor, Blink. Amazon has also said that customer service teams for each company will continue to operate to mitigate any interruptions in service. You can now get a Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell in Satin Nickel for just $100.
