  2. Amazon has finally caught up to Google uses Ring Doorbell with Echo Show vs Nest Hello and Nest Hub! As of 6/2/2020, my US-based system can now automatically display on my Echo Show without my workaround Echo Dot backpack!! https://youtu.be/K0mxaygdHiU The Amazon setup has a few pluses in that you can add custom announcements in Alexa Routines and that motion is also announced, but NOT displayed Frank
  3. I was contacted by a son who wanted a means to help his Mom hear and see Alexa calling notifications on her Echo Show. The problem is her TV is playing loud all the time and she can't hear well Here is my suggestion using a Fire TV Cube to pause the TV on an incoming call BTW, thanks @AYL_Brian for the kudos at 2:10 in your video as he used that to contact me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lZcJKRvAaQ
  4. Amazon recently published some help for people wanting to remotely setup their parents Echo Show units https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00007FA1BESA1/help-loved-ones-connect-their-echo-show-remotely This is something I have been trying to help with for quite some time... https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zSpI5SAK/you-dont-need-to-get-grandma-a-smartphone-to-setup-alexa-calling Amazon covered the basic use cases, but didn't mention one problem that I have run into... when grandma doesn't have, nor want, a smartphone to receive the setup text message.... I recommend the use of a free "Google Voice" number
  5. Amazon is introducing new feature to its Alexa Show device designed to help blind and other low-vision customers identify common household pantry items by holding them up in front of Alexa’s camera and asking what it is. The feature uses a combination of computer vision and machine learning techniques in order to recognize the objects the Echo Show sees. https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/23/amazons-echo-show-can-now-identify-household-pantry-items-held-in-front-of-its-camera/

  7. Amazon UK currently have a half price deal for the Echo Show 8, it's currently available for £59.99 (only £10 more than the Echo Show 5) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07SMN7FYZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_piQ8Db5W6YT9Z
  8. Thought this was pretty interesting that someone got their Hubitat Dashboard like dashboard setup on their Amazon Echo Show: https://community.hubitat.com/t/show-off-your-dashboards/1715/485?u=alan_ayl They did this by asking Alexa to 'Open Silk' (the Amazon browser?), then type the URL of the Hubitat. Hey that could bring more Amazon users to Hubitat.
