I have a Ring Video Doorbell 2 and an Amazon Echo Dot. I cannot hear the chime of the doorbell throughout my home. There is an Alexa Ring Skill that seems to focus on the video. It technically does not support the Dot, but it installed fine, it just doesn't do anything since it is designed to show video. I was hoping the skill would allow the doorbell to play a notification through the Dot (and possibly allow me to talk to the person).

Is there a way to integrate the Ring and the Dot?

If I understand correctly, the major part of this is now working. My Ring 2 came bundled with an echo dot, and I receive both movement and 'ring' notifications on the Dot.

The ring shows up as a 'camera' in Alexa, and the two notifications can be controlled independently.

There is no support to 'talk' to the person at the door (or even listen to audio) when using the Dot.
