Re: How do I get Ring 2 video to automatically show on Echo Show 8

Hi Chuckster,

 

From the time someone rings the door:

-Doorbell "Ding-Dong" is activated (I have it hardwired to a physical doorbell too.)

-Echo Anounces that "Someone is at the Front Door"

-Echo Show displays a splash screen someone is at the front door

-At the 6-7 second mark the video will automatically display

-At the 20 second mark the video will automatically end and go back to the home screen

 

Regards

Now we just need to get the Android app to work the same.

During 20 seconds if you touch the screen to turn on micro phone, video will be continuously playing until you say "alexa, stop".

I do have the same problem. But within the ring app video shows up with no problems.

Does anybody have a clue?

For me if they press the doorbell it pops up automatically, but on motion it just pops up and says "Someone is at your door"

 

How can I make the video pop up automatically with motion?

Google Nest doesn't have this feature either..in fact it doesn't have anything at all like this.

 

I bought one yesterday and returned it for Ring today. At least the ring now pops up auto on doorbell and does say "Someone is at the door" on motion.

I had the same issue until 6/2/2020 where I can now automatically see my Ring Doorbell Pro video on my Echo Show screen.

 

Try disabling and re-enabling "Doorbell Press Announcements" in the doorbell camera under devices

Is there any way to use a Show as an "always on" monitor for a Ring Pro?

So that it defaults to show what the doorball cam sees as a home screen on the Show.

Not everyone rings the door bell or crosses the set monitoring boundry but this would be a great feature for my home.

I got it working on two (2) Echo Spots which are bedside, but the video doesn't last very long.  Is there any setting in the Alexa App to show the video longer?
