I have written a post to the following thread
However this may now be a closed thread because it’s over a year old.
I have researched for hours and hours and still I cannot get this to work.
All I want to do is basically get my tablet to automatically open live feed video from my ring video doorbell (I have doorbell 2) whenever the button is pressed,
I have downloaded and paid for sharptools, and tasker.
There is no actual explanation or step by step to get this up and running and cannot find anything online.
Once I downloaded the relevant apps. First I go to smartthings, and authorise sharptools.
Then I open sharptools and authorise front door which is my ring doorbell. The I long press on front door (still in sharptools) and subscribed to button press
Then I open tasker and create new event, choose plugin, choose sharptools, then choose state.
Then I choose new task and launch app then choose ring.
From everything I’ve read, this is what need a to be done, but there is no actual step by step instructions to do this, only one or two sentenced replied saying do this and this but not actually explaining how to get it done.
From the link I’ve posted above, Rajeev made a YouTube video that was over 30 mins long and I have watched every second of it, it’s a detailed video and has helped however, again, there is no explanation on what steps need to be taken to enable tasker and sharptools and smartthings to all work together all that when my doorbell is pressed , I instantly get a live feed video from it showing on my tablet.
Please please please can somebody help me!! If there are so many that have been able to do it, please reply and share your knowledge so I can get this up and running.
All I want to do is see an instant live view of the doorbell when it’s pressed.
I even bought a fire tv stick in the hope smartthings would be able to launch the video feed straight on my tv, but that doesn’t work either unless I physically say to Alexa to show me my front door cam.
I can go into smartthings and create an automation to change my tv source to fire tv stick when the button is pressed but this just opens the home screen and not the video feed
Just like Rajeev, I want it completely automated without the need to press or say anything.
Many thanks in advance. I will really appreciate anybody who can help.
