Whether you want to safeguard your house against burglaries, or just want to make sure you don't answer the door to an unbearably chatty neighbour, having a bit of tech that can tell you exactly who's on your porch without you having to make the effort to get there is important.

Video doorbells have become increasingly popular in recent years as people look to keep their homes protected, particularly now that we can all head out into the world and back to the post-lockdown commute.

One of the most established brands in home security is Ring, which is owned by Amazon and has been around since 2012. It has a little lens fixed above the doorbell and captures anyone that comes to your door, giving you live footage if you’re away from home, or the ability to communicate with visitors through your smartphone.

The problem? Ring has a lot of different models to choose from, so you’ll need to figure out which one is best for you. However, with the Black Friday sales right around the corner, there are always a few deals to be had to help you save some money.

What is a Ring doorbell?

Whenever someone presses the Ring doorbell, you’ll get a notification to get a live video feed where you can talk to whoever’s there, even if you’re not at home. If you want the doorbell to alert you when you’re there, you can also get a Ring Chime (£30), which dings around your home whenever someone presses the button.

You can then sign up to a Ring Protect Plan (£2.50 per month) that will automatically start recording if it detects motion, saving the footage in the cloud for you to look at whenever you want.

It’s a good way to deter burglars, keep an eye on deliveries, and decide if you can't be bothered to answer the door based on whoever you see on your smartphone screen.

There are two broad options: wired models which will require installation into your home (start dusting off your DIY skills) or battery-powered ones that can just be screwed in and recharging every six months or so.

What is Black Friday?

If you’ve somehow never even heard of Black Friday before, it’s basically the biggest online shopping event of the year where you can find big discounts on top gadgets and tech, as well as clothes, watches, and household items. Been keeping your eye on that top-spec cinema projector? It will likely get some kind of price drop over the sale.

Hundreds of retailers take part every year, and we’ve seen some solid discounts that can give you up to 70% off things like TVs, headphones, smart speakers, and watches.

However, you should be aware that some retailers are sneaky and slowly increase prices in the months leading up to Black Friday before dropping discounts, making it look like you’re saving a heap of cash when in reality, it’s similar to what it was six months ago.

Our Esquire editors are experts at finding a good deal among the chaos so we can help you find the genuine offers.

When is Black Friday?

Officially, it kicks off at just-gone midnight on Friday 26 November and runs through until midnight on Monday, which is known as Cyber Monday.

It got this name as this was often when the tech deals landed, but over the years, it has grown to a point where you can often find a discount you’ll want to go for throughout the month.
