So this feature was the prime reason why I wanted ring. I was at a relatives house and when someone came up to the door the ring doorbell would recognize who it is and would announce through chime the phone notification and their Alexa that “Bill” was at the front door. I have looked and searched and can not figure this out on how I can get my ring to do the same thing. Does anyone know how to make this happen with ring?
Hi there, @Tman24! Alexa has many options for announcements and setting up this integrations, as described further in our help center article. Announcing “someone is at your Video Doorbell (device name)” is the standard announcement, where as detecting who or announcing a specific person is not a feature that I am aware of with Ring/ Alexa. This may vary depending on the vast possibilities of integrations and any lengths others might go to obtain such automation, but for the intended operation, the article I shared above reflects how this should work.
