Best Ring smart doorbell deals for Black Friday 2022
(Pocket-lint) - There's no better time to buy a new Ring smart doorbell than in the Black Friday sales. The day itself falls on 25 November in 2022, followed by Cyber Monday on 28 November, but this year we are seeing a long run up, particularly on Amazon, which has started its sales a week early. Similarly to Prime Day, there are always big discounts on Amazon's range of doorbell and camera products over Black Friday - so it's the perfect time to buy before the holiday season, when it's getting colder and darker earlier.
Some are bundle deals with other Ring or Amazon products included, others are single product deals. But all of them are bargains if you need to update your smart home security setup.
Where are the best Ring deals on Black Friday?
Despite Ring being attached to Amazon, you'll still find good deals from a range of wider retailers - with many, like Target or Currys, price-matching deals. As there are so many Ring products, it's often a great time to pick up last year's product at a cut of the price.
We've broken down this year's best deals so far, in the US and UK, into quick links below. We'll continue to update this as we find more deals that you need to know about: UK Black Friday Ring deals | US Black Friday Ring deals

Which Ring doorbell should I buy on Black Friday?
As always, the right Ring Doorbell for you comes down to your budget and the range of features you want your video doorbell to have.
The most recent Ring release is the Video Doorbell 4, which offers enhanced Wi-Fi, Quick Replies for when you're busy and colour pre-roll video previews of all motion events. It's all-singing-all-dancing, and it's the model for people that want all of the advanced features it can offer, but it's rarely in the sales. The Doorbell 3 is a more likely Black Friday candidate, and is the company's most popular model.
It comes with improved motion detection compared with the base model, some additional security features and still has dual-band Wi-Fi for a more stable connection. However, the 2nd Gen Ring Video Doorbell is one of the models you'll want to consider if you're on a budget. It's only a couple of years old, and still offers full HD video, two-way talk and a rechargeable battery for wireless install.
The Ring Doorbell Wired offers similar feaures but does need to be hardwired, making it the cheapest model in the range. As you'll see below, it's often chosen for further discounts in Black Friday sales, making it even cheaper. Don't forget with any of these, you may want to invest in the Ring Chime if you want to hear audio notifications when someone presses your Ring doorbell, as well as getting smartphone notifications.
