Do you want to automate your doorbell with other smart home devices?
For example, when the doorbell is pressed, light up the porch light or let echo speaker say a customized word.
We can use the Alexa Routines to do that.
To get started, please follow below steps:
Setup the wired or battery video doorbell and make sure they’re working fine on the eufy Security App.
Open the Alexa app, search for “Eufy Security” Skill. Enable the skill to link your Eufy Security account with your Alexa account.
Discover your devices.
Go to Side Menu - Routines.
Create your routine by defining the name, time, trigger and action. There’re a lot of useful and funny actions you can explore, like saying a customized word, playing a funny sound or linking to IFTTT actions.
This is great! Been waiting for this feature to get hooked up for a while now. I had made a routine where Alexa announces on all my devices: Someone just rang the front doorbell. It just started working yesterday for me.
I haven’t checked to see if “Alexa, answer the front doorbell,” works yet, where I can see the doorbell camera on my show display and speak with the person who is there. Seems Amazon’s doorbell can do this and I’m better others can with the right API hooks in place.
Would be great if we could trigger routines for motion detection by the camera.
Please can we get access to motion trigger? I need my porch light to turn on with motion, well before the actual button is pressed! I have steps and it’s dark here at 4:30 in the fall/winter months! I was able to do this with Ring and Smart Things , but switched to Eufy because I wasn’t happy with Ring’s policies.
