Thank goodness I found this post. I have an Echo on the way and was thinking it would be nice to be able to tell Alexa to Snooze my cameras and doorbell when doing activities like mowing the grass. Mowing the grass while wearing Air Pods while forgetting to snooze the alerts is deafening. To know that hooking Ring to Alexa will just create another annoyance with the speaker going off in the house bothering anyone inside is unthinkable. I suppose until there is a more graceful way to handle this I will not be hooking up Alexa to my Ring system. Come on Ring people lets get this issue to work.

I'm confused. Has the Alexa app changed? If I go to Routines I'm shown existing routines, featured routines, and I'm offered an opportunity to create a new routine (the "+" at the upper right corner). The "devices" button is at the lower right corner, and touching that will take you out of "routines." So I've got two choices (neither of which matches what you've said here) - Go to devices and try to set up the Ring camera there (as we know, that doesn't work), or to create a new routine. Creating a new routine there is no "motion" variable "when this happens." Going to "Smart Home" offers an opportunity to use the Ring camera, but the only variable available is "not detected" or "detected" - not a schedule. Sure could use some help here. Perhaps this is something that cannot be done. Sure would be nice to have the Ring app integrate fully with Alexa, as do the apps for Nest thermostats and Kasa lighting.
