The more we utilize smart technology in our homes, the more we’re surprised by how many things work together seamlessly. Most people use the Ring Doorbell with their mobile device to broadcast video through the Ring app. However, can you see your Ring Doorbell footage on your smart TV using a Fire Stick or another device?
Ring Video Doorbell Pro video footage can only be seen on a smart TV that is compatible with it. This function is not accessible on other Ring Doorbell models. If you don’t have access to a suitable smart TV, a Fire TV Stick will work for this purpose as well.
You can also set up the Ring Video Doorbell Pro to send motion alerts and doorbell activation notifications to your smart TV. We’ll show you how to get started connecting your Ring Doorbell to your TV’s Fire Stick or seeing video from your doorbell using a compatible smart TV.

Viewing Ring Doorbell on Fire TV
You can see all of your devices on your TV screen once you’ve connected the Ring Doorbell app to your Fire TV. It’s easy to do because all you have to do is begin the proper speech command.
You’ll need to know the precise names of your gadgets before you start. When you originally set up your devices, you gave them these names. The majority of people give them names based on where they are, such as “Front Door” or “Backyard.”
If you’ve given them a different name, you’ll need to use the corresponding voice command. If you’re unsure about the names, open the Ring app and hit the ‘My Devices’ option to search them up. All of the mentioned devices, as well as their names, are displayed in the following menu.
Following that, you can use any of the following commands:
- Say “Alexa, show me the [device name]” to have the Ring Doorbell camera appear on your TV screen.
- “Alexa, hide the [device name]”: to hide the device from the display.
- “Alexa, play the last event from [device name]”: to play the most recent event that has been recorded.
- To pause the video, say “Alexa, pause.”
Is it possible to use Ring Doorbell with other Amazon devices?
The Ring Doorbell is compatible with all Alexa-enabled devices. All additional devices will be linked after enabling this skill through the Alexa app. If you have an Echo Show or Echo Dot in addition to the Fire TV, your Ring Doorbell will connect to those as well.
You may now use the Echo Show or Echo Dot to begin Ring Doorbell commands. Consider the following scenario:
- “Alexa, answer the [device name]”: This will allow you to see the video and communicate using the device’s built-in microphone and speaker.
- “Alexa, talk to the [device name]”: This is a separate command that accomplishes the same goal.
Aside from Alexa, the Ring Doorbell is compatible with a variety of other smart devices and gadgets, including Samsung TVs and even certain Samsung refrigerators. Check to see if you have any additional devices that can be connected to your Ring Doorbell.
