Today, I'm going to show you how to set up an Alexa routine so that if your Ring, Blink, Arlo, Wyze Wi-Fi cameras detect motion, it will automatically stream the live view to your Amazon Echo Show devices. Using Alexa routines, you can also get your echo show to stream the live footage when somebody pushes the doorbell of your Eufy Video Doorbells. There are some caveats though that I will be talking more in the video. In this video, I will set up the routine for my Ring cameras - Wired Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Ring Spotlight Cam and also tested it with my Ring 3 Plus Doorbell and my Ring Spotlight Cam battery. I also tested this with my Blink Outdoor, Arlo Pro 3's and Ultras, Wyze Cam V3 and my Eufy Battery Doorbell.

hello ! i’ve been watching your videos for long time , they are great videos. Thank you for everything and I have a question: How can I set up multi cameras( Lorex ) with echo show 8 ? they say we can do that up to 4 cameras at ones
I set this up on my cameras back in may or so. Last month it stopped working for some reason, only the door bell triggers the cameras view. I deleted the routines and set them up again but still isn't working. did something change in the app, i have it set to show video when it detects a person and worked perfectly for months. Any ideas?
Brooooo , help lol , I’ve got the show 8 and 2nd gen ring , how do you get full screen when activated via motion as mine goes small screen in the corner and then won’t close when I tell it
Works perfect when door bell pushed
Thank you I have been fighting to get this set up and you show me how to do it under 5 minutes ❤😂
The feature "Auto Live Streaming: When someone rings the Doorbell, a real-time video of the Eufy doorbell will display on the device with Alexa" is not supported. Furthermore, the latency/buffering issue is frustrating. My Alexa Echo Show 8 used to make an announcement when the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K was pressed/detected emotions, or it showed on the screen that "someone is at the door". Now Alexa stops doing that altogether. Appreciate your input.
Do you know if they updated the detention time settings for the wyze cameras bro?
I wonder if it's possible to set up a second routine triggered by the doorbell that would stop the stream after one to two minutes to avoid draining your doorbells batteries. Even when you connect the doorbell to the standard 24 vac doorbell lines, the smart doorbell only trickle charges off the 24 vac and still runs off batteries when streaming, it's just that when wired, it will recharge afterwards.
i did everything perfectly but my echo show says "At the moment it is not possible to turn on the camera But you can ask me to view it ..." why? it's really frustrating, someone help me thanks
Too slow connecting
This video is too fast, makes it hard to follow, I had to slow it down
I upgraded to an echo show 8 and also added the ring floodlight cam and everything was working fine until I got home from work,it won’t display live view on motion detection,just give me the notification. Ugh so frustrating
Thank you for this video!
Odd.. I have the latest Ring Doorbell Pro2, and routine seems to work "manually" or in test mode, but when I actually walk in front of my ring, it doesn't seem to auto-run. Took off the "Alexa, End" routine even.
Do you need a Subscription to Ring in order to have Alexa open the live view on the phone when motion is detected
