Thanks for letting me be part of the community. I recently bought two Ring door bells and new echo show 5 in Prime day deals.. it was so cheap..! i am in the UK
Anyway haven't fitted doorbells yet but wanted to setup first and see how they work. Both bells are connected and running, from battery, i have enabled alexa skills, set up which echo's announcement on bell press.
However, when i press the button the Echo's ring and announce which bell has been pressed - however echo show's don't show anything on the screen at all - don't even come up with a graphic let alone show a live feed. I believe live view should come up automatically when bell is pressed.
If i press the bell and ask 'Alexa, Answer the Side Door' it does then login and show me a live view or if on a normal alexa 'talk to the side door.. '
Driving me and the household insane with me testing
I have tried:
Deleting skill, doorbells and re-adding
Change email address for Ring to same as Amazon as I read someone did that - although that makes no sense
Rebooting Echo Show
Only have one echo show in announcement list and removing all other devices of which there is a lot
Can Anyone help please?
TLDR: Press button Echo Show doesn't show live view automatically?
Hi @bounderboy. Does the Live View pull up on any other devices? If your Live View in general is having issues, it would cause your Echo Show to also have issues. Here is a Community article for troubleshooting Live View. If your Live View works on other devices, such as a phone or tablet, just not on your Echo Show, try going here for support on the Echo Show.
If you need support with your Doorbell and it's Live View function, please read our response to COVID-19 here to see how to contact support. We're taking additional steps to protect our team and help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This has resulted in longer than normal wait times.
Did you rename your Echo Show at some point? Sounds like the same issue:
Ahh thank you good spot. I added a new Echo Show (to make it 3 in my household) before I installed my Ring doorbells. But didn't rename I don't think..
Also if I had renamed would that mean it wouldn't work on any of them.
After a few days now - I get notifications of Movement on my Echo Show screens but nothing on screen when door bell is pushed on either device. I get the sound alerts as expected.
I can view or talk to cameras from my echo shows no problem at all
It's very odd indeed
