Ring Doorbell 2 with Echo Show 5 and Echo Dot?

I’ve recently installed a Ring doorbell 2 and use it with an Echo Show 5 which is in the living room.

I can’t hear the Show upstairs, so when the doorbell rings & I’m upstairs, I can’t hear it.

I’ve also got an unused Echo Dot. Can I set that up to act as a chime upstairs whilst still keeping the Show 5 for downstairs?

If so, how do I set up both devices to alert me simultaneously when the bell is rung?


Good question, @Nezza42! You can certainly setup the Alexa announcements to come through on multiple Alexa devices. You can select which of your Echo devices make an announcement in the Alexa app by following the instructions below:

  • Download the latest Alexa app.
  • Tap the Devices tab at the lower right-hand section of your screen.
  • Tap All Devices .
  • Tap the security camera or doorbell camera you wish to be notified about.
  • Tap “Announcement devices” and select the Echo device(s) on which you wish to hear announcements.

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Thanks, it’s working!
It’s easy when you know how :laughing:
