Ring Video Doorbell video monitor

I like the Ring Video Doorbell, but one thing I don’t like is that I don’t get an automatic video feed of who’s at the door when the doorbell rings. This isn’t an issue when I’m not at home, but when I am, it’s a PITA.

As it is now, when someone rings the doorbell, I have to either open the Ring app on my phone, or ask Alexa to show the Ring video, and wait for either of them to connect (usually taking around ~30 seconds to do so.) It’s faster for me to just answer the door, but that defeats the purpose of what I want.

There are other video doorbells that offer this feature; they use a dedicated monitor (usually around 8"-10" in size) that displays the live video feed as soon as someone rings the doorbell.

I would pay extra if Ring were to offer a dedicated monitor to instantly display the doorbell video feed, and I could mount it next to my door.
