In the world of video doorbells, there's one that reigns supreme — Amazon's Ring Doorbell.

With six different models, each highly-rated and boasting rave reviews, a video doorbell like this is usually the first point of call for those of us who are looking to invest in a seamless home security system.

But it goes without saying, they're not exactly cheap. Well, not usually anyway...

That's right, as part of Amazon's Black Friday sale, a range of Ring's best-selling doorbells have gone on sale, including the brand's most top-rated pick: the Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Gen).

Up for grabs for just £49.99 down from £99.99, you can save 50% right now on what shoppers have dubbed as the best video doorbell "by a landslide".

On sale for £49.99, this is the cheapest price we've seen all year (even cheaper than Prime Day). Not to mention, it's the latest model from Ring.

Why we rate it

First off, it's wireless, which means there's no fiddling about with unnecessary wiring and connections during set-up.

It gives you instant notifications when anyone presses your doorbell or when motion is detected, and even lets you pair it with other devices (that are Alexa-enabled) for further hands-free notifications.

Using HD video, it offers a crisp playback which lets you see, hear, and speak to anyone from your phone or tablet — a handy feature for when you're not home.

Plus, it comes complete with night vision and adjustable motion zones which allow you to focus on specific areas, as well as the ability to save and store videos for future viewing.

If that wasn't enough, it runs on a rechargeable battery and comes with a mount for easy installation.

And to top things off, it's the sleekest looking video doorbell we've come across.

As far as value for money is concerned, this doorbell has everything you could want, and is even more of a bargain now that it's currently on sale for £49.99.

We would recommend you shop fast, though, as we suspect this model to sell out *very* quickly...

Amazon has also slashed the price of a number of other Ring Doorbells and bundles.

If you're looking for a more affordable number, then this wired version should fit the bill. It has all the same features (alongside interchangeable face plates and advanced previews), but instead requires wiring. Which, if you already have a compatible doorbell wiring system, is super simple to do.
