How do I show the camera on my Echo?

Answered by Cody Janus

To show the camera on your Echo device, you can use the Alexa app and follow these steps:

1. Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet.
2. Tap on the menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
3. Select “Smart Home” from the menu options.
4. Tap on “Devices” to view all your connected devices.
5. Look for the camera device you want to show on your Echo and tap on it.
6. In the camera settings, you will find the current camera name listed. Make sure it is the name you want to use when giving commands to Alexa.
7. If you wish to change the camera name, you can do so by tapping on “Edit Name” and entering a new name.
8. Once you have confirmed the camera name, you can now use voice commands to show the camera on your Echo device.

To show the camera, say “Alexa, show [camera name].” Replace [camera name] with the name you have assigned to your camera. Alexa will then begin streaming the camera feed to your Echo device with a screen, such as the Echo Show or Echo Spot.

It’s worth noting that not all cameras are compatible with Alexa and may require specific skills or integrations. Make sure your camera is listed as a compatible device in the Alexa app or consult the camera’s manufacturer for any additional setup requirements.
