Costco has the Ring Alarm 10 piece system (Base station, Keypad, Range Extender, 1 Motion Detector, 6 contact Sensors) for $219.99

This is my first deal post as I've been lurking in this deal forum a while now and have been looking at all of the Ring Alarm system options. Only reason I came across this is because I almost pulled the trigger yesterday ordering the 10 piece system on ring.com for $259.00 when the coupon code I was trying to use kept disappearing after entering in my zip code. When I went back to the product page on Costco.com it shows a manufacturer $20 rebate starting today 2/6 - 3/3
This Costco 10 piece system is slightly different than the $259 deals currently on Amazon and Ring.com. Instead of getting 2 motion and 5 contact sensors, this deal is 1 motion and 6 contact sensors.

----UPDATED 2/12/2019---
Added #9 to the list after installing the Ring System
FAQ:
1) Is a monthly fee required with the Ring Alarm System?
---No, it is optional, you can use this system as a stand alone to only notify you via mobile alerts.
2) How much is the professional monitoring service?
---$10/mo or $100/year
3) How does the professional monitoring service work?
---They have you add 1 or 2 emergency contacts which they will contact first on alarm trigger, if no one answers or neither contact gives the correct pass phrase then they will dispatch police. Furthermore, if you have the new First Alert Smoke/CO2 Alarm's they can also dispatch the fire department if those trigger on the system.
------As a side note, please check with your local police/fire departments as some townships require you to register your alarm system with them and pay a registration fee. This cuts down on false alarms and you may be billed from your township for subsequent false alarms.
4) Does this system have glass break sensors as an option?
---Not yet, but Ring has aggressively been adding new options. For example, recently they added flood/freeze sensors and a panic button. As a side note, Amazon added the Alexa Guard feature for the newer Echo devices. Since Alexa integrates with this Ring system, it can also trigger an alert such as Glass Shattering or Fire Alarms sounding off. Currently Alexa Guard is in early stage release and only the newer 3rd Gen Echo devices support it. You can find out if you open the Alexa app on your phone > Settings > Guard
5) Does this integrate with Alexa?
---Yes, for example you can say "Alexa arm ring in [stay away] mode" or "Alexa, disarm Ring" she will then ask you for your passcode to disarm. For more information go here: https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us...with-Alexa
6) What happens if the power or internet goes out?
---This system comes with a cellular backup and battery backup
7) What if I already have other Ring products in my household?
---If you are already paying the $3/mo for the Ring DoorBell or Camera devices, this new $10/mo or $100/year service can also absorb those devices into the same fee for a cheaper bundled service and still include your cloud storage.
8) What if I already have Z-Wave Plus [Insert sensor or contact name here] will it also work on this system?
---Based on other responses, it sounds like some of them will work on this system to notify you on your mobile device of actionable items, but Ring will ignore them in the monitoring service to dispatch police/fire. You will need a Ring sensor to be used with the monitoring service.
9) How big are the contact sensors?
---After installing this system I realized the contact sensors are quite large. While they are not the biggest that I've seen, they posed issues with my double hung windows. As a result, I went on Amazon and ordered "60x10x3mm magnetic bars" these puppies with double sided adhesives did the trick to allow installation with only 1 contact sensor per double hung window. Installing the Ring contact transmitter on top of the bottom window while using the adhesive bar magnet against the bottom of the top window sill was slim enough to clear the hash to open/close without any issues. Without these slimmer magnets you will need 2 contact sensors per double hung window which can get very pricey. While you can still get away with only securing the bottom window, under certain circumstances someone can still lower the top window and climb over if you have obstacles they can climb on near your window (bilco doors, retaining walls, fences, etc.)

According to the Ring.com website, upon first installing your Ring Alarm system it can go into a 7 day trial mode. Where the monitoring service will not contact police while you are learning the system.

PRICING & FEATURE LIST:

Additional Contact Sensors, Motion Sensors, Flood/Freeze Sensors, Keypads, First Alert Smoke/CO2, and Panic Button can be purchased on Ring.com. If you are a current Protect Plus customer, you receive 10% off on these accessories on https://shop.ring.com

I have simplisafe and a nest doorbell and I'm thinking and dumping both and going with ring.

It should be pointed out that simplisafe's $15 s month monitoring has literally zero features and you have to pay $25 a month to get their full feature set that includes remote arm and disarm, sms alerts, smart home integrations and the ability to get secret alerts which is actually a highlight of the system for me. After having our motion sensors go off nearly 2-3 times a month, it would be insane to not have remote disarm. If ring's monitoring includes all of that, then it blows simplisafe's cost out of the water.

I would be curious to see how the features of ring's monitoring stack up to simplisafe. I like my nest and simplisafe combo, but I'm also paying $350 a year to record 5 days on nest and my alarm monitoring... with ring, it would only be $100 a year which is a really nice savings. I just wish rings cameras had the same high resolution as the nest.

This came at a great time. Question for people who use this - are you putting sensors on all your windows that can open? All your doors? I have a split level so wondering if I should get a second motion sensor? Or even a third?

I have a split level townhouse, I put the motion sensor in the basement and I put the window sensors on all the main level windows and doors

I'm in the same boat as you. Split level home with a wide open basement that has bilco doors. Problem is the HVAC system has vents that go into the basement near the basement windows, so in order for me to cover the 2 windows + bilco doors with a motion, there's a chance it could catch heat coming off the HVAC system triggering false alarms. This is why I went with the Costco deal as there's 1 less motion but 1 extra contact sensor. I'll just use contact sensors on the windows + door down there.

Nothing on the second level because it's more likely for someone to try and break in at the lower level than climbing on the roof for the second level?

Is the manufacturer savings just through costco? Seems strange if its like a rebate that it would not be available online/usable on the ring website...Would prefer the one on the ring website as I need the second motion.

FYI, the $25 off coupon code I tried to use when ordering the current $159/$259/$329 sale on Ring.com is "NBAPPLE" without the quotes. It did not work for me after entering in my zip code, perhaps it will work for someone else. It WILL add the discount after adding one of those 3 systems to the cart, but after I entered in my shipping info it kept taking it off and added tax.

Depends on the level of service you want. Not by default but if you want professional monitoring, it's $10/month.
