Alexa, Show my front door

Hi All,

Not sure if this is possible - but I have a new Amazon Fire 4K Stick, a Ring Doorbell, and a Harmony Remote.

I can ask Alexa to 'Show my front door' and it will ping up on my TV Screen.
BUT
It doesn't integrate with Ring notifications, so if the doorbell rings, it doesn't do it automatically.

Is there a way I could trigger this via Indigo somehow?
When the doorbell rings, and my TV is on (fine up to this point) then somehow in the background start the 'Alexa, show my front door' command.

Re: Alexa, Show my front door

Likely a silly option, but if you have a sonos speaker, you can have it say "Alexa show my front door) and this works. The sonos can be triggered by the Indigo plug in.

Alternatively, you need to install Android Debug Bridge (ADB) on the Indigo Mac, then run an ADB command when the bell rings. I do this option with my driveway camera when the driveway sensor goes off. It brings up the Camera on my FireTV Cube. You can see the implementation here: viewtopic.php?p=170976#p170976
