The Ring Video Doorbell takes mere
minutes to install and comes with the
necessary hardware to get the job done.
It can be hardwired into your existing
doorbell power or can stand alone with
a rechargeable battery, and easily
connects to your home Wi-Fi
network. Install one at your
home and one at your vaca-
tion getaway, and monitor
them both in real time.
The Ring Video
Doorbell is available at
Costco for a fantastic
value. It comes bun-
dled with the Ring
Chime—a plug-in ringer
that alerts you to some-
one at your door, even
when you don’t have your
phone or tablet nearby—at no
additional charge. The Chime is a stand-
alone item at many other retailers. Ring
includes lifetime purchase
protection, so if someone
manages to steal the
device, Ring will replace
it free of charge.

I AM A gadget guy. I
love technology and the
exciting ways it allows
us to do various tasks in
life with more flexibility
and more range.
One such gadget is
the Ring Video
Doorbell. This allows
you to see who’s
at your front
door without going to the
door or even being home.
With a free app downloaded to your Apple,
Android or Windows
device, you’ll be notified when someone
rings your bell or even
just approaches it,
thanks to motion detection. You will also be
able to communicate with
the visitor via two-way
talk—not just from within your
home, but from wherever you are.
With the optional cloud recording you
can review past video at
any time. Think of the security applications: Not only
can you appear to be at
home all of the time as a
deterrent, but if someone
does steal a package left at
your door you’ll have a
video for the police.

ROUGHLY THREE out
of five fire deaths happen in homes with no
smoke alarms or with
alarms that aren’t
according to the
National Fire Protection
Many times, smoke
from cooking or steam
from a shower causes false alarms,
which result in many homeowners
removing the batteries in frustration. But
this means that when a real emergency
occurs, residents aren’t alerted in time.
Because of this statistic, I’m proud to
offer our members the First Alert 10-Year
Battery Smoke Alarm. First Alert is a
leading innovator in the smoke alarm
industry, and this product is equipped
with a photoelectric smoke sensor to
reduce false alarms caused by cooking
smoke or shower steam. The 10-year battery is embedded in the product, which
means replacements are not necessary
First Alert 10-Year Battery Smoke Alarm
for the life of the alarm, and you won’t
be bothered by disruptive low-battery
chirps in the middle of the night.
Another one of my favorite features
is the alarm’s slim design; it’s half the
size of typical smoke detectors, making
it a sleek addition to any room of your
house. First Alert recommends that
alarms be installed in every bedroom,
outside each sleeping area and on every
level of your home.
Costco offers these fire alarms in a
two-pack, offering increased home safety
at an incredible value. Item #829923.
