You would think having a routine as simple as: “Alexa, what was that” that we could achieve some simple things.
- Turns on my front door lights; for 10 minutes
- Turns on my front garage door lights; for 10 minutes
- Turns on my kitchen lights; for 10 minutes
- Shows me the Ring Doorbell Pro video
I am able to achieve all those, except step 4, as it shows in the routine to add it as UNSUPPORTED device.
Forget about Ring + Echo/Alexa = Amazon, and forget about having the smartphones receive notifications that someone is at the door by either motion or by pressing the doorbell, that works. Forget about saying: Alexa, show me the front door, and it does… all that works.
But a simple ADD TO ROUTINE is not supported? I have to assume that if I were to order an outdoor RING camera, it can’t be added to a routine either, so I will have to cancel my order for such, as I already have cameras recording the outside that are not supported with the Echo product.
