One of the biggest trends in consumer technology over the last few years has been the rise of the smart home. The number of different device categories that now make up the 'Internet of Things' (IoT) has grown immensely, with connected appliances now found in many households across the US and beyond.

One of the best places for a smart camera is your front door. That way it doesn't record anything that goes inside the house, if you're wary of privacy issues, but it still lets you see who got near your home.

Ring makes one of these smart doorbells, and its first-gen one (the non-Pro) is currently discounted as Best Buy's "Black Friday Ad Deal." It's down to $99.99, the lowest price we've ever seen it reach. Read More
