I was reading the other thread on the ring doorbell pro and people complaining about the internal battery failing after 1 1/2 years...... This would certainly mitigate that issue

So I guess people online show a battery inside the doorbell PRO. I had no idea. I have the protect pro plan. If you equipment is within warranty period from the 1st year of activation, the warranty will be extended.
It is hard to find a alarm monitoring (Insurance discount), video cloud storage for multiple camera + extended life time warranty that beats this. $150 or $100 usd

I wonder if they will honour the $100 usd a year. That is the price I signed up with. I have a hardwired spotlight camera pointing at my front door. Do I need a ring DOORBELL? isn't the spotlight camera replace a doorbell? beside the doorbell ring function.

What a great system. I tore down my alarm and replace it with ring. $100 for monitoring and unlimited ring cloud for your ring devices. Also cellular backup.
Took me 30min to install and most of it was taking apart the old system and figuring out where I should mount the motion sensors.

Ah another IOT device. Make sure to setup 2FA/MFA if applicable on this device. Security concerns are a big thing these days for IOT devices, especially alarm systems. Just a heads up and food for thought. :)

The Ring Pro has an internal battery.
The post from the below does raise some concerns.

Oh. Hmm... I am guessing the alarm system is controlled by an app as well, on top of the provided keypad?

Smh. Sorry for expressing my questions, etc. It is just that I am in the field of Cyber Security, and IOT devices have piqued my interest. Ever since the whole Nest issue - where an attacker got a hold of a baby cam and started speaking through the mic. Then the father got upset at Google/Nest since he invested into a lot of Nest IOT devices and complained for a refund. All because he didn't setup 2FA/MFA.

Yes exactly, it will extend the warranty of the doorbell pro (and any other ring cam you have or get) as long as you continue to sub to the protect pro plan which is an awesome bonus imo.

Is the $339 at best buy (9 piece) with echo dot the best deal we've seen? It seems to be better than the US ring.com 10 piece deal since it comes with 2 keypads... So more expensive parts? And no risk of duties. Is this the go-to then? How does this compare with deals from last xmas, etc?

10% off regular price

I have order the same package , I receive this in 7 days. It is shipped by Fedex. You can call and e-mail them, you can ask for more discount once you have the subscription. You will get 5% off sale items and 10% off regular. I received the discount. I was not charged tax or duties.

Why no tax, was it shipped from Canadian warehouse?

I'm glad you brought it up, as we are so focus on "security", yet these devices are extremely vulnerable.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.
Point of the post is that the better deal by far is with ring.com

Definitely, especially for those with a no FX fee CC.
Based on current posted rate with MC and Visa, it's about CAD $210.51

I can attest this. Had issues with my doorbell pro since September where it will loose connectivity after someone rings the doorbell. I had to manually reset the device every time this happened. This came out of nowhere and I had the Pro when it was first released.

I bought the Spotlight cam when BestBuy had it on sale to replace the doorbell. Anyway, the Ring rep on the phone mentioned that If I went with their $100 plan, they would replace the doorbell at no cost. They would do the same for any other future Ring product I purchased
