Ring Doorbell automatic live view on Fire tablet


I do have amazon echo show and fire tablet HD8 (8th gen). Both of them looks like fully supported for alexa skills, but I cannot manage to have live view automatically comming on when dorbell anouncing that “someone is in front…”. It is working fine on amazon echo show.

When I go camera inside devices setup I see in section “announcement Devices” only echo show device.

The fire tablet is set to be in “show mode” all time long.

Thanks for help.


Hey @mixi. The automatic Live View being pulled up when you have an event happen is a new feature that was just released to the Echo Show, and will not be available for the Fire tablet yet at this time. We are so glad that the Alexa team was able to release this for the Echo Show, and look forward to more integrations in the near future.

If you’d like, as we value our neighbors’ 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 neighbors to comment and add interest, all in one place. :slight_smile:

I’m still waiting for this feature too!

Any update on this feature? I’ve just installed a ring door bell and this would be great to have.

When will we get the update?

I have it wokring on my Fire HD10 with an Alexa Routine. Named it Answer Door When: Front Doorbell is Pressed, Alexa Will (last action in List), view front doorbell. It also lets you pick which device to display it on. Doesn’t work on non fire Androids. And it doesn’t appear that the voice answer will work. I get the dreaded “Front Door does not support that”. Fortunatly I have a dot nearby, so I created another routine to hae the dot talk to the door. Wish this wasn’t such a science experiment.


can shar the steps u took to creat this rotine also do it work if i have 2 ent doors one on the front of the house and other at side?

So I got this to work. But how do I get it to go back to home/show mode?

Not the cleanest way to do it but I just created 2 other routines and called them “back to home doorbell” and “back to home motion”. The actions were “wait” for 2 minutes. And then another action, custom, “home”.
