Are Echo Show devices the only smart displays that can automatically show a live feed when a person is detected

Are Amazon Echo Show devices the only smart displays that can be configured to automatically show you a live feed from a Ring camera when someone is detected?

Just want to be sure before I purchase a smart display.

Further to this, can anyone point me in the direction of a routine for my ring spotlight cam that will automatically show the live camera feed on a smart display whenever a person is detected?


Hi @mandkring. The Ring skill for Alexa doesn’t officially support Live View automatically being displayed when motion is detected. Depending on what Ring device you have, we did work with Alexa to offer Person and Package Announcements, which may work for you. I’d also recommend reviewing this thread for more information. Some neighbors in the replies there have shared what Alexa routines they’ve used and what works for them in their systems.
