Do Ring products work with Alexa?
Yes! Once you install the Ring Video Doorbell Alexa skill, you can use your Echo speaker or other Alexa-enabled device to control your Ring devices.
What can you do with Ring products and Alexa?
You get different capabilities depending on which Alexa device you’re using. If you have an Echo Show or another device with a screen (including a Fire TV), you can say, “Alexa, show the front door” to see what your front entryway looks like. Same goes for any cameras you have around the house.
If you don’t have an Echo Show or other device with a screen, there’s really nothing you can do with your smart speaker and the Ring Video Doorbells. At this time, you can’t use your Echo speaker to hold a two-way conversation using your Ring’s microphone and speaker. You can add that capability with a $40 Fire TV, though. You would use your Echo speaker to say, “Alexa, show the front door”, and have your video come through your television.
