[ARCHIVED] City of Monterey Park to Offer Discounted “Ring” Video Doorbells at December 11 Event

The City of Monterey Park will offer an additional 200 households discounted doorbells outfitted with surveillance cameras. 

This promotion will be offered to Monterey Park residents on December 11, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. at George Elder Park, 1950 Wilcox Avenue. Residents will be able to purchase one subsidized Ring doorbell product per household on a first come, first serve basis. Residents must provide a utility bill under their name and government identification with photograph. Households that have already received a Ring subsidy are not eligible to participate (one subsidy per household). A credit card will be the only method of payment accepted. 

Following a similar discount event in July 2018, the city agreed to set aside an additional $10,000 to provide a $50 subsidy on Ring doorbells for 200 more households. Ring will match that with a $50 discount of its own, meaning residents will save $100 total on each unit. Monterey Park’s program reduces the cost of the video doorbells from their regular pricing of between $199 and $249 to between $99 and $149, depending on the model selected. 

All of the models enable residents to receive instant alerts when visitors press the doorbell or trigger the built-in motion sensors, and see, hear, and speak to anyone at their front door from their smartphone, tablet, or PC. The intercom capability enables residents to respond audibly and view live video feed – even if they are not home. 

Monterey Park has joined Alhambra, Arcadia, La Cañada Flintridge and Temple City in partnering with Ring.
