Amazon's is not reducing the price of Ring's monthly cloud subscription (that allows people to access any saved video captured by the doorbell).
Jamie Siminoff, CEO and Chief Inventor of Ring says, "Together with Amazon, we will accelerate our mission dramatically by connecting more neighbours globally and making our security devices and systems more affordable and accessible".
Amazon is quick to note in its press material that the Ring name is sticking around - for the time being, at least. You can order the Ring doorbell at the reduced price now, but the shipment is delayed to April 23 for the silver color.
Ring is dropping the price of its Video Doorbell to just $99.99, from $179.99 on Ring.com and about $132.99 on Amazon.

The company also sells a second-generation version, called Video Doorbell 2, naturally, which offers a 1080P resolution. The company backed Ring through the Alexa Fund, which has become a bit of a funnel for future acquisitions of late, as it looks to leverage the Echo/Alexa's success into an all-out smart home takeover. This specific smart doorbell comes in 'Satin Nickel,' 'Polished Brass,' 'Antique Brass,' and 'Venetian Bronze.'
Ring, Blink, and Amazon Cloud Cam will continue operations under their respective brands.

Research claims Android manufacturers dishonest about security
If a phone made by either of those companies is your daily driver, you might want to trade up to something a little more secure. While the smartphones of Sony and Samsung were found to have missed few patches, ZTE and TCL lied about 4 or more updates.
