'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Black Friday sales have officially kicked off the holiday shopping season. That means that most people will probably have tons of packages arriving at the front door in the next couple of weeks, making them a perfect target for a holiday robbery (we've all seen Home Alone, right?). The Ring Video Doorbell can make the perfect early holiday gift for yourself or your loved ones. Peace of mind and safety is the best gift, especially when its 40% off on Amazon right now.

With the Ring Video Doorbell, you'll get live video feed of what's happening at your door on your smartphone, tablet or PC. The latest model of the Ring Video Doorbell features improved motion detection, privacy zones and better night vision. In addition to seeing what's happening, you can also talk to whoever is at the front door, even if you aren't home. 

I have a Ring Video Doorbell on my own front door, and I love it. Its very handy when you're expecting a package all day and don't want to miss the delivery person. You can also check when you didn't get a package you were expecting and want to make sure it wasn't stolen.

The Ring Video Doorbell is a fantastic gift for people of all ages. I love the extra sense of security it gives me and I am sure many other young adults would appreciate the gift as well. The doorbell is so simple to operate and install that my mom uses one and loves it as well.
