Amazon-owned Ring is offering an affordable entry into smart home security, compared to existing systems out there. Nest, for instance, sells a similar setup for $399. Ring8217;s system can be self-installed without a professional monitoring service, though. You can also deal with alerts yourself, or pay $10 per month for professional monitoring. Other niceties include LTE backup and unlimited video backup for cameras.
