Hi @Bob1234. Live View can only be automatically pulled up when there is a Doorbell push, not when there is motion. As we value your feedback, we’ve created a Feature Request board. Feel free to add this and any future feature requests there. This will help us to organize and share your requests with our teams here, as well as allow other neighbours to comment and add interest, all in one place. Feel free to link that post you make in the Feature Request board here so other neighbours that come to this thread can easily find your feature !
Thank you, it is a feature that should be included without asking, and available on practically all other security cameras. A security camera that does not display when there is a security breach is hardly a security camera, even the adverts imply that it can, reported to the ASA.
However it is possible using an Alexa routine.
The problem to run thus routine it needs the “custom” option and I am trying to find out why I can’t see this option, routine below.
Open the Amazon Alexa App to create the 1st Routine;
Select -> More
Select -> Routines
Select -> + to add a new routine
Select -> + Enter routine name – example-> FD-Cam Show
Select -> Next
Select -> + When this happens
Select -> Smart Home
Select -> FrontDoorCamera (or whatever you called your doorbell/camera)
Select -> Motion
Select -> Detected
Select -> Next
Select -> + Add action
Select -> Custom (scroll to the bottom of the list, also this Custom action has to be the last item in the Routine…)
Input -> type in the input field–> Show Front Door (this will tell Alexa to Start Showing Live View at the FrontDoorCamera)
Select -> Next (You will see this entered in the Action section as the Command, “Alexa, Show Front Door”)
Scroll down if needed
Select -> From \ Choose Device
Select -> your “Echo Show Device” that you want the Live View camera to be shown on
Select -> Save
