Ring Video Doorbells and solar powered 'Stick Up' cameras are being sold through distributors as kits:
We have tested Ring Pro, and while not flawless it is a decent product that could prove a valuable upgrade for many households. We've not tested the 'Stickup' cams, but the video components are the same. The solar panel seems like an eyesore at best, but we have no results on performance.
This offering is interesting, because Ring is overtly a consumer item and is widely available sold directly to the public.
Ring is making a play at the pro-sumer/ commercial market by offering this through distribution, and they are leaving 'some meat on the bone' with the price.
Purchasing this $380 kit is about 30% less expensive than buying from Ring direct:
- Pro Doorbell: $249
- Stickup Camera: $199
- Solar Kit for Camera: $49
- Lighted Sign: $49
The total "DIY" buy is $546, although buying parts from other retailers/online sources is likely to be modestly discounted.
So, does Ring's distributor discounted kit make it an appealing offering for you? Would you sell these?
