Can this be used in macro photography or stay with ring lights?
You could but it would be way too big, bulky and heavy for macro. It just wouldn't be convenient for that. This is more of a studio flash that sits atop a light stand with the convenience of being able to go out in the field because of it being battery powered but you'd need something a lot smaller and more portable for macro work.
For macro, a ring light would be a good choice. Personally I'd get an on camera speed lite and use a diffuser. They have some small one's specifically for macro work that are tear drop shaped and similar to a reflector disc in the way that they are cloth with a hole to snug mount over a lens.

Awesome deal! I'm about to pull the trigger on it! This monolight will be more portable than the AD600 right?

I was thinking of the AD600Pro non-TTL for $679.
Is the AD600 Pro non-TTL a feature worth getting?
I would get the AD600 Pro HSS Non-TTL combo kit for only $699. A saving over $347

Definitely not worth getting or paying extra. TTL is basically an auto mode for your flash. It guesses what would be the best flash output and many times doesn't come out as desired and you still have to dial up and down to suit your taste anyways.
It also causes and annoying double flash before the shot is taken and many times causes the camera to miss focus. I rarely have mis-focus issues when using manual on my flash units.
I have the ad600 manual flash and love it. Also have an ad200 and tt860 and work great as well but never use TTL on those either.
Right on...it has its own benefits...for me - i am good with manual setup , where i dont want to miss by micro seconds...

Oh, man, OP is not making this easy for me.

The AD400, or 2x AD200 Pro with the dual head adapter? I'm hoping that the AD200 will drop to around the $275 mark on BF, which would put this around the same price as the AD400 sells for normally (which does not appear to go on sale all that often).

They should be similar power-wise (with the dual head kit) and the AD200 setup would be more flexible. However, with this deal, the AD400 would be cheaper and more robust.

Decision, decisions....

I second that. And if you plan on having a multi-flash setup, I personally think that TTL causes more problems than it solves.

I have 2x Godox TT685F speedlites that I use to take shots of my escape rooms. (So I never use them outside.) I'd like to add a third and was going to get another speedlite, but I'm wondering if this would be overkill. I'm not a pro and don't use flash all that often outside my business. Thanks!

Unless you got extra $$...
dont purchase this...it might be overkill and additional luggage to store and move around...

Probably not. This is only on sale maybe twice a year (at a deal price). If you want one get it now.
I also got that Neewer. How much better is this one?

Does anyone know if there is a way to sync these to an iPhone or one of its many camera apps?
Yes! Use the Flashpoint R2 APP in the App Store. Use the Flashpoint R2 Pro or Pro Mark II wireless transmitter as the link to your smartphone. It's great.
