At Ring, our mission is to reduce crime in neighborhoods. By making smart security devices that are easy to use, we help families around the world stop crime in its tracks.

We strive to improve our products everyday, so that all our Ring Neighbors can get superior home security and peace of mind at their fingertips. Today, we’re proud to announce a partnership that is sure to take your home security to the next level.

We’ve listened to all your requests, and we’re happy to announce that select Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cameras now work with Amazon Alexa!

If you have an Amazon Echo Show, you can now instantly access your Ring device by simply using your voice!

The Ring Skill connects Ring Video Doorbell 2, Video Doorbell Elite, Video Doorbell Pro and Floodlight Cam to your Echo Show. You can use Alexa to start a new video or join an existing one, but there is currently no support for two-way talk.

The original Ring Video Doorbell and Stick Up Cam are not fully supported at this time. We’re currently working on adding full support for all Ring devices, so stay tuned for updates!

Alexa also works with Shared Users, so anyone connected to your Ring can also use Alexa to view activity.

Using Alexa to access your Ring is simple. By saying “Alexa, show my front door,” you’ll instantly get a live video feed of activity at your home. To stop viewing the feed, simply say “Alexa, hide my front door.” Note that “front door” is used here as an example, and this should be replaced with whatever name you used to label your Ring device (e.g. “backyard,” “side door,” “garage,” etc.).

By working with Alexa, Ring is making home security even simpler and more convenient. Now, you not only have the power of home security at your fingertips, you can also have it at the sound of your voice.
