The Best Home Security Solutions for Every Budget

By Ring on October 10, 2023

Whether you’re just entering the world of home security or are looking for the most innovative upgrades with features you can’t find anywhere else, Ring has solutions to fit every goal — and budget.

From cameras and lighting to security systems and accessories, these are the best ways to enhance security at any price point.

Simple Setups to Get You Started

Adding a layer of security to the place you call home is simple and affordable with these reliable security solutions.

Video Doorbell

A video doorbell is the perfect first line of defense for your home since it alerts you when people come and go, from friends to delivery drivers. You can also talk to the people who stop by from the Ring App, whether you’re tied up feeding your kids in the kitchen or wrapping up a project in the office.

With a Ring Protect subscription, sold separately starting at only $3.99 a month, you can look back at stored footage to see any missed visitors or deliveries1. And if you see something notable, you can share those clips with the authorities, an insurance adjuster, or people nearby using the Neighbors App.

Stick Up Cam

If you’re looking for a versatile camera that works inside and out, Stick Up Cam is a waterproof option you can mount or set on surfaces. From outdoor patios and yards to living rooms and hallways, you can use Stick Up Cam to monitor the areas your video doorbell can’t capture.

Spotlight and Floodlight

These motion-activated lights provide helpful illumination for you and your guests while alerting uninvited visitors they’ve been noticed. With a Ring Bridge, you can get notifications to the Ring App when motion is detected2. And for an extra layer of security around your home, you can connect your video doorbell and outdoor security cameras and set them to automatically begin recording when a light turns on.

If you want to upgrade security and add the convenience of motion-activated lighting with an outdoor camera, Floodlight and Spotlight Cams are the perfect leveled-up solution.

Ring Alarm Security Kits

Industry-leading security systems haven’t always been accessible to everyone — but Ring Alarm changes that. We have budget-friendly, ready-to-install kits for every home, including apartments and rentals, that you can customize with additional accessories now or down the line.

While everything you need comes in the box, you can subscribe to Ring Protect Pro, sold separately, to arm and disarm your system from your pocket, access 24/7 Alarm Professional Monitoring, and potentially save on your homeowner’s insurance3 4.

Products to Help Level Up Security

These leveled-up solutions unlock convenient features that enhance protection and privacy.

Ring Alarm Pro

Ring Alarm doesn’t just protect your home — when you go Pro, the Base Station doubles as an eero router to safeguard your data.5 You’ll get automatic security updates to ensure your network has the most advanced protection and built-in encryption, so your information can’t get intercepted before it reaches the cloud. Plus, with a Ring Protect Pro subscription, sold separately, you get 24/7 backup internet to keep you and your system connected during an outage.3

Outdoor Security Cameras With Lighting

Floodlight Cam and Spotlight Cam combine the security of motion-activated lighting with crisp cameras to record activity as soon as it occurs6. After you receive a notification in the Ring App, you can use Two-Way Talk to speak with visitors and sound the built-in siren if they’re unexpected.

Floodlight Cam and Spotlight Cam also allow you to create Privacy Zones, which black out areas you don’t want to record. And if you don’t want your camera on while you and your family are at home, you can create motion schedules to disable alerts and footage at certain times.

Indoor Cam

When your house is full of rambunctious pets and kids, keeping an eye on the inside can be just as important as monitoring the exterior. With an Indoor Cam, you can check Live View to see what your family is up to and use Two-Way Talk to chat or answer questions from wherever you are. When you want some privacy, you can slide the cover closed to turn off audio and video.

Innovative Upgrades for the Smart Security Enthusiast

If you’re looking for the most cutting-edge technology to make your life easier, these upgrades provide the most advanced capabilities Ring offers.

Accessories Bundle

With an Accessories Bundle, you can unlock additional functionality from your Ring Alarm Pro to help improve your family’s safety and potentially prevent property damage. In one convenient bundle, you get the following devices that connect with your Alarm to provide critical notifications and assistance when you need it most:3

  • Panic Button: When enrolled in 24/7 Alarm Professional Monitoring with your Ring Protect Pro subscription, sold separately, you can press the Panic Button to request fire, medical, or police response with one click.3 4
  • Glass Break Sensor: This sensor triggers the Alarm if glass breaks, which can alert you to a storm, break-in attempt, or accident.
  • Smoke & CO Listener: If your smoke or CO detector goes off, this sensor will detect the sound and trigger your Alarm. You can also include this sensor in professional monitoring to ensure an agent can request emergency assistance if you’re not available.4
  • Flood & Freeze Sensor: It’s easy to miss minor leaks beneath your sink or washing machine, but they can cause major damage when undetected. This sensor triggers the Alarm when it detects water or temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can take steps to prevent frozen pipes.
  • Pro Outdoor Security Cameras

    The Pro versions of our Floodlight and Spotlight Cams provide the highest level of visibility when someone enters your property with 3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View. These features offer more accurate Motion Alerts and pinpoint a visitor’s path in Live View when they enter your property. And if you need to chat with someone through your camera’s speaker, Audio+ offers echo cancellation and crisp sound.

    If you’re looking for a camera that matches your home’s aesthetic, Floodlight Cam Pro comes in premium colors to add a stylish touch.

    Video Doorbell Elite

    This professional-grade video doorbell uses Power over Ethernet to access data and power, which ensures 24/7 connectivity and high-quality video. And with a Ring Protect subscription, sold separately, you can customize your settings to ensure you only get notifications for people or packages.

    Video Doorbell Elite has a flush-mount style and is compatible with several sleek faceplates, so it looks like a built-in feature on your home.

    Virtual Security Guard

    Whether you’re out of town or have a hectic work schedule, you don’t always have time to check your camera notifications when they come in. And with Virtual Security Guard, you don’t have to worry that something’s happening at home when you don’t have time to check out Live View. Trained Rapid Response professionals will watch for real-time notifications, check your camera feeds, use your cameras’ sirens and Two-Way Talk feature, and even request assistance if necessary. That means you can enjoy a relaxing vacation or sleep in on Saturday morning with the peace of mind that nothing will get missed.
