I just purchased an LG OLED C9 smart tv. It has the Alexa app built in. I’m trying to get Alexa to show me my cams on the TV. When I ask Akexa to show me front door on the TV it comes up with a screen saying Front Door waiting but never displays it. Is there a trick to this.
No. There is a slight delay. Here’s how mine reacts with Alexa fire tv. Virtually same thing I believe.
I’m not using a firetv. There is an app which installs the complete alexa service on the tv. No need for an external one. Although I’m using an external so thats why I say Alexa show front door on the TV. It does switch but not to the Wyze one like on your screen but it does say waiting on front door. I do have a couple echo shows and they operate like you have shown. The reason I’m using the external one is because I do not want to push the button on the remote to activate the voice command.
I just say the cam name (name in alexa app), ie. “Alexa, Front Door”. But how did you get her to not say/reply “OK”?
Edit: opps, just tried it, and I have to say DISPLAY Front Door…
How do you have the LG OLED C9 smart tv hooked up to the internet, WiFi or Ethernet cable?
I’d try the other and see if it helps …
Try Wifi …if you haven’t already.
But Ethernet IS the better of the 2.
I’d try and move the Wyze cam temporarily closer to the WiFi router/extender it’s connected to…and see.
If it works, it’s Wyze related issue …
If not, the Alexa app in the smart Tv issue …check for update(s) ?
Just as a side note on signal, I have one outside cam connected to and old Linksys 54g running dd-wrt from inside a metal building, and while the cam shows a signal strength of 96% from the 54g wifi, the 54g is only showing a 38% receive from that cam. So it looks like it would be easy to have a good enough signal to setup a cam, but at the same time not be able to view it.
“Show me” the front door. “Display” the front door. Same thing.
