As a concept, video doorbells rock, but despite its popularity we don’t recommend Ring. Fortunately, many alternatives exist, including the Arlo Essential Wired Video Doorbell. This is the best video doorbell you can buy, and right now it’s $31 for Prime Day. It’s a match for the best deal we’ve tracked down since last year’s Black Friday.
Arlo works reliably, records detailed video, and notifies you quickly when someone is at the door. And, unlike Ring, Arlo doesn’t have a troubled relationship with law enforcement. If you’re looking for a video doorbell, Arlo is our top pick.
