It would mark Amazon's second-biggest acquisition after the nearly $14-billion purchase of Whole Foods in June.

"We'll be able to achieve even more by partnering with an inventive, customer-centric company like Amazon," Ring said in a statement. "We look forward to being a part of the Amazon team as we work toward our vision for safer neighborhoods."

"Ring's home security products and services have delighted customers since Day 1," Amazon said in a statement. "We're excited to work with this talented team and help them in their mission to keep homes safe and secure."
