Good question @Camuser33! At this time the Alexa enabled devices and skills work through commands. As you stated, saying "Alexa show me the Front Door" is the intended functionality of this skill. Check out our help center article about Alexa enabled devices' skills with Ring.
Of course, most integrations offer great potential to accomplish various things. Perhaps a neighbor will share their experience, suggestions, or ideas here.
THE most requested feature, whether you look at Echo or Ring at Amazon, or look at Echo and Ring here, or just search the web. EVERYONE knows it's a no-brainer -- but impossible to solve.
Yes, it's a skill, and yes, skills are enabled by voice commands, but surely Ring could work with Amazon to have this ONE feature built-in, particularly given they are bundling Ring with Echo Shows. It's the first thing everyone wants, and it's the one thing that's impossible.
Not only that, but in a household with more than one Show if you try saying "Show me the door" it won't always show on the one you're near (unlike most Echo commands, activating the Ring just happens with any particular Show that can hear you, not necessarily the one you are nearest. Which does you a crapload of good if you then can't see it).
I know a lot of folks are returning both the Ring and the Show because of this -- you folks really need to pressure Amazon to fix.
My son has a Nest doorbell and a Google Home Hub (I think that is what they call the product with screen). As soon as someone rings the doorbell the live wiew is active on the screen. As was mentioned, asking Alexa to show the view takes time and, in my case, ineffective over the barking dogs.
