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

Thanks for you information. I am in Panama Country and we have the same issue we hope Ring and Echo Team can work and fix that. We want to make Real Smart Home Automation.

Can someone from Ring respond here? This is a basic functionality issue. Even if it is Amazon's to fix, we'd all really appreciate it if Ring would show some acknowledgement and possibly engage with Amazon to make the products better.

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

I have an echo show 8 and thought it would show automactically but soon realised it doesnt and suppose its work in progress..... but there are work arounds as i am sure yall might have read on here and i tend to not rely on the echo and have a android tablet automactically show me, its set on the rapid ring app notification and the load time it quick i would say approx 3sec to load live view automactically.

 

So until there is a offical feature for this from Amazon/RING this method fulfills this need for me atleast Smiley Happy

I agree.. it's annoying actual echo show reviewers don't call out Amazon on this
Only when it affects Ring and Echo sales will they release a simple update

Workaround using Echo Dot with Echo Show works perfectly with only a 8 second delay from motion detection to camera view! Switched wake up name on Dot so both units don't respond for other inquires. Wish the function was integrated within the Show, but I had a Dot I rarely used in a spare room & this gets the job done. Thanks for the solution!

That is great news. Is there documentation/videos anywhere on how to do this? 

 

Been waiting for a while. Would be great improvement.

Now that the auto display works for Echo Show devices, it be great to have the option to auto display for motion detection too.
