The Ring Alarm Pro is a DIY home security system, but you’ll get the most out of it if you plan on upgrading your whole home’s smart systems. It has a built-in Eero router, so adding an extender can turn your network into a Wi-Fi 6 mesh system. Plus, it includes cellular-supported backup Wi-Fi, so if you lose power or network connection, your internet stays intact. Finally, you get local video processing and storage, and cool integrations with Alexa if you have an Amazon Echo device.

In short, it will turn a regular old home into a surprisingly robust smart home in no time.
