Looking to make your home safer? Don't have the cash to hire a 24/7 security guard? No worries: A smart-home video doorbell is just what you need, and we've got just the one, at an unbeatable price.

Most smart-home video devices cost a small fortune, but you can grab this Ring Floodlight Cam for $185, or $65 off, at HSN. That's a nearly 30 percent savings and the lowest price on the web right now. In fact, it's not even this cheap at Amazon, who owns Ring itself. Mind blown, right?

In true HSN fashion, they're throwing in a tasty extra to sweeten the deal: A Ring Assist+ plan that extends your warranty from one to three years (a $40 value).

And not only is the $185 price a steal, you don't even have to pay it all at once; HSN lets you opt for five 'FlexPays' of just $37, with no interest at all. (No interest on their part, I mean — you should be very interested!) Plus, you get free shipping!

New to HSN? Wanna save still more money? You can get an additional $20 off with promo code HSN2021 at checkout. That'll bring the price down to just $165, or $85. It's nice to be a newbie!

Need your breezeway surveilled? It's a breeze!

The outdoor Ring Floodlight Cam attaches to garages or just about anywhere around your home that's considered a blind spot. Then just sit back and rest assured: Its built-in dual ultra-bright LED floodlights (which pump out a blazing 1,800 Lumen each) and loud sirens will alert anyone within its perimeter that you have their attention (and vice versa). Watch this video to learn more.

It comes with a mounting bracket and installation tools and will stand up to wind, rain, snow and more. After installing the hard-wired cam (shoppers say it's a snap), just connect it to your smartphone, tablet or laptop via the Ring app for an instant live stream with sharp and clear Full HD video quality at 1080p via Wi-Fi. 

"I cannot speak highly enough about what a wonderful product this is," raved a five-star reviewer. "The quality of the Ring Floodlight itself is great and the quality of video is superb in both day and night...It is simple to use and I was able to install it out of the box, get it connected to Wi-Fi and up and working in less than 30 minutes. This is a must-have...I will be getting another one for the side of my house...Thank you, Ring. This should win an award for best product of the decade!!"

Safety and convenience, at a rock-bottom price

Easy to set up...even easier to use. The Ring Floodlight's sophisticated motion detection and night-vision system will send you a notification when it's triggered. It features two-way talk, so you can surprise any visitors, or "visitors," with your best scary voice or direct the delivery person to leave your packages in the garage. And you can do it all even when you're not home! That Wi-Fi capability means the cam is also great for keeping an eye on your domicile even if you're in another town, city, state, country, even continent!

"Worked beautifully when we were in Spain," shared a satisfied Ring shopper. "We had a friend take care of the house while we were gone, and one day he showed up at the house, we got the notice of movement at our driveway, and we were able to talk to him from Spain through the floodlight camera! I was floored at how well this worked..."

Although you can expect years of trouble-free use, it sure is nice that this deal comes with Ring Assist+ (a $40 value), which protects the Ring Floodlight Cam with an extended three-year warranty, VIP support, incident protection and lifetime tool and theft replacement. If someone steals your floodlight cam (which, admittedly, would be not only a bummer but the height of irony), Ring will replace it for free!

To sum up: At $185 (was $250), the Ring Floodlight Cam is a great, high-tech, super-economical way to keep tabs on your home and property, even if you're just out for a quick supermarket run. 

"...We opted for the Ring Floodlight Cam because I love the sense of lighting up the area to anyone who gets close enough, but also capturing anything they do on camera," added another five-star reviewer. "I love that we can even talk to anyone without them being aware we are at home or not..."
