Ring is relaunching its original Video Doorbell, first introduced in 2014, with features found in its more expensive doorbells without raising the price. That includes 1080p video, improved night vision, and motion zones for $99.99. It’s also introducing a new $49 solar charger that frames and powers the doorbell.

The new Video Doorbell can run off rechargeable battery or hardwired connection and supports two-way talk with noise cancellation. It also features privacy and motion zones to help fine-tune alerts and recordings. So basically, it’s the $199 Video Doorbell 2 (now discontinued) for half the price. The Video Doorbell 3 offers better Wi-Fi performance and motion tracking for $199.99.
