Nobody ever happily sighed, 'Home, Burgled Home.' It's your realm, your domain, your castle, and you want to keep it protected. But you can't be there all day, can you? Well, once again, the digital age comes to the rescue, this time via the folks at Ring, whose Spotlight Cam makes for a virtual 24/7 security guard keeping your possessions yours, your property un-trespassed and your family safe. 

This is a good investment anytime; right now it's a great one, as Amazon's got the Ring Spotlight Cam on sale for $150, or $50 off for Prime members only — as an early Prime Day deal. This is the all-time lowest price ever on this super popular smart home cam. In fact, it's so popular that it has earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 18,000 reviewers. 

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Security in a snap

Originally priced at $200, the outdoor Ring Spotlight Cam comes with a mounting bracket and installation tools and will stand up to wind, rain, snow and more. After installing the cam (shoppers say it's a breeze), 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.

"...The unit was up and running within minutes," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "It has a very sharp, clear picture and picks up every movement...We have two Maltese and they are constantly barking at the door as if they hear someone outside, so it’s good to have the camera to validate if they do...I also like how it will alert you when motion is detected. I can be in parts of my house and not hear the doorbell so it’s great to know when someone comes by or drops off a package."

Safety and convenience, all in one

Meanwhile, the Ring Spotlight Cam's built-in LED light strips and siren are sure to keep would-be intruders at bay, while its sophisticated motion detection and night-vision system will send you a notification upon being triggered. It features two-way talk, so you can surprise any visitors with your best scary voice or direct the delivery person to leave your packages in the garage.

"...The camera makes me feel at ease knowing if I’m at work I can still keep an eye on my front door and even talk to someone at the door through the camera," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I also like that it has a light to make nighttime visitors easier to see."

At $150 for Prime members only (was $200), the Ring Spotlight Cam is a great way to keep tabs on your home and property, even if you're just out for a quick supermarket run. It's easy to set up, easy to use and, at this discount, nice and easy on your wallet. 

Perhaps this Amazon shopper put it best: "Flawless."
