Dang-you, Amazon Prime Day! I now own an Echo Show 10, 8, and 5, and I have been thinking about adding at least two Echo Show compatible cameras to my Amazon smart home ecosystem. In my typical O.C.D. fashion, I have been researching cameras like crazy, and here is what I found out about both indoor and outdoor cams.

Here are my 11 picks for the best Echo Show compatible cameras this year:

  1. Best Overall: Ring Indoor
  2. Best Budget Option: Wyze Cam
  3. Budget Plus: Wyze Cam Pan
  4. Wyze Alternative: Blink Mini
  5. Most Versatile: Ring Stickup Cam
  6. Most Innovative: Logitech Circle 2

You can click on any of the links above to jump down to my mini-review for that particular camera. I will compare and contrast all 11 and weigh the pros and cons of each camera below. I will also include some infographics to compare key features for a few of my favorites side-by-side.


Echo Show as a Camera Monitor

According to the latest numbers by Modor Intelligence, the global smart display market is poised to reach a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18% year-over-year from 2021-2025.

Wow, that is some pretty serious growth.

echo show compatible cameras

With the release of the Echo Show 1st and 2nd Generations a few years back Amazon has been capitalizing on this trend for awhile.

Clearly, the Echo Show continues to be a major part of Amazon’s Alexa strategy. Last year, the company released the Echo Show 8 & 5 — and a few weeks back it recently unveiled a new Echo Show 10 model.

But did you know that the Echo Show also makes a great monitor when paired with a compatible camera? You can use it to monitor your baby, check up on your kids, spy on your nanny, monitor an elderly parent, check your front door, keep an eye on your pooch, catch a package thief, and more.

To quickly summarize your Amazon Echo smart display options that work with Echo Show compatible cameras, we now have:

  • Echo Show 10
  • Echo Show 8
  • Echo Show 5
  • Echo Show 2nd Generation
  • Echo Show 1st Generation
  • Echo Spot

In addition, most Echo show compatible cameras will also work with Facebook’s larger Portal Plus and some will work with Google Nest Hub Max, but that is a story for another day.

📚RelatedEcho Show 2 vs Facebook Portal Plus vs Nest Hub Max 

You can also broadcast camera footage on your Smart TV via compatible Fire TV cameras. (Ring, Arlo, Nest, EZVIZ, Vivint Smart Home, Amcrest, Logitech, and August are some options.) AND the latest Fire Tablets will support the display of camera footage as well. Cool.

In addition to all of these smart display options, there are also a ton of options out there now for cameras. However, it can be overwhelming to choose the best camera for your needs. That’s where I come in. I put more than 50 hours of research into this post to come up with 11 solid recommendations.

To help make your decision easier, I created a handy (colorful!) infographic comparing key features of my top 11 picks. I’ll include that below next. Then, I’ll dive into the details of all 11 best Amazon Echo Show compatible cameras in more detail below.

As you can see, many Echo Show compatible cameras have similar features but there are definitely some key differences. The standouts are in the areas of Google/Apple Hoomekit support, video resolution, field of view (FoV), and free vs paid Cloud storage.

I’ll go into more detail on the similarities and differences as well as the pros and cons of each in my mini-review of each camera below. I’ll also cover three additional options.

1. Best Value: Ring Indoor Cam

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

First on my list of the best Echo Show compatible cameras is the Ring Indoor Cam. Why is this my top choice?  For starters, it’s a plug-in camera, which means you never have to worry about battery life and you get a better overall picture and reliability. Second, unlike some of the other cameras featured here, it includes a live view, which lets you check on your home anytime through the Ring app.

(Some cameras only record when motion is detected, which means they won’t really work as a baby monitor or as a constant feed.

Another plus is that it includes an easy-to-install wall bracket for you DIYers out there. It also includes some security stickers, which I think add a nice touch as a potential theft deterrent:

best echo show compatible cameras

  • Always-on recording
  • Easy setup
  • 1080 HD

  • Can watch multiple rooms by connecting multiple devices using the Ring app
  • Includes mounting bracket

Cons

  • In order to have saved footage for up to 60 days, you have to pay a fee. $3 a month but a little lower if you get the annual subscription.
  • Does not integrate with Ring Alarm
  • It is wired so it requires an available outlet

Dimensions

1.81 in. x 1.81 in. x 2.95 in. (46 mm x 46 mm x 75 mm)

What’s in the Box

2. Best Budget Option: Wyze Cam

best echo show compatible cameras

SEE IT AT AMAZON

I’m not technical at all and this took me less than 10 minutes to set up.Kara from Massachusetts

Next on my list of best Echo Show compatible cameras is Wyze Cam. Wyze Cam gets you the most bang for the buck out of any camera I have researched, reviewed, or tested. It provides many of the features that the premium cameras provide for a fraction of the price. It also works great as a video feed for both the Echo Show and Echo Spot. In fact, the price is so low that some have speculated that the company must be selling customer footage to the government. LOL.

All paranoia aside, this is a great value. And my boy Reed backs me up in the below video, the government it NOT a factor here!   I bought one of these for my non-techie sister last year for Christmas and it took her literally 10 minutes to set it up and get it paired to her Echo Show in the Alexa app. She uses to keep an eye on (and scold!) her carpet-chewing dog while she is working in a lab 30 miles away.

Pros

  • It’s super cheap!
  • Night vision
  • Zone detection
  • Camera sharing with multiple family members
  • Free Cloud storage
  • Mobile push notifications
  • Ability to record continuously to a MicroSD card (sold separately)

Cons

  • Compatible with 2. 4GHz WiFi networks only (does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi)
  • Must have an Apple (iOS) or Android mobile device for set up.
  • No Cloud storage option beyond 14 days of saved alert videos (free)
  • Designed for indoor use only
  • Requires a wired connection (no battery option)

Video Review: Wyze Cam

Here’s a really nice review of the Wyze Cam from Reed over at Smart Home Solver:


Wyze Cam Alexa Commands

To see your live Wyze Cam feed, you can say:

  • “Alexa, show me the baby room.”
  • “Alexa, show my bedroom.”
  • “Alexa, show the back yard.”
  • “Alexa, show me doggie cam.”

To stop your Wyze Cam live stream you can say:

  • “Alexa, stop.”
  • “Alexa, go home.”

💁‍♂️Pro Tip: Alexa commands are similar for many of the cameras here but some cameras are more limited in how they interact with the Echo Show. If this is a concern, make sure you review the manufacturer’s documentation before you choose a camera.

Dimensions

  • 2.2 x 2 x 2 inches
  • 3.53 ounces

What’s In the Box

  • Wyze camera
  • 6-foot USB power cable
  • Power adapter
  • Wall Plate
  • Mounting Tape
  • Quick Start Guide

3. Budget-Plus: Wyze Cam Pan

best echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

For a little more money, the Wyze Cam Pan is an equally affordable security camera that has all of the same features of the Wyze Cam, plus a few extras.  And the additional cost really is trivial – at least at the time of this writing. Wyze does a great job detailing the differences between the two models, but I will summarize the main points here.

The Wyze Cam Pan is best when you want visibility of an entire room. It lets you pan and tilt the lens to give you a 360° horizontal and 93° vertical viewing range (using the Wyze app). Wyze Cam Pan also has better quality night vision, thanks to six IR LEDs instead of the four that come with regular Wyze Cam.

Pros

  • All of the benefits of the Wyze Cam listed above
  • Pan, tilt, and zoom the camera remotely using the Wyze app
  • Motion tracking tracks motion at 110° per second and provides all-directional coverage (horizontal 360°, vertical 93°)
  • “Pan Scan” mode auto rotates the camera to get a full view of a room
  • Enhanced night vision distinguishes 18 shades of gray and provides clear images up to 30 feet away
  • Can be mounted to a standard camera tripod or mount

Cons

  • Pan has a higher power requirement than Wyze Cam v1/v2
  • Cannot be reliably used for daisy-chaining

Video Review: Wyze Cam vs Wyze Cam Pan

Craig’s Tech Talk does a nice comparing the Wyze Cam and the Wyze Cam Pan in this video review:


How To Use Wyze Cam With Alexa

Wyze put out this nice video showing how to use Wyze with Alexa. It’s a bit dated (note the Echo Show 1st Gen) but it still works the same!

NOTE: You will definitely want to mute Alexa before you watch this to prevent her from going off.


Dimensions

  • Size: 2.36 x 2.36 x 5.02 inches
  • Item Weight 8.8 ounces

What’s In the Box

  • Wyze Cam Pan
  • Micro-USB power cable (not interchangeable with Wyze Cam USB)
  • Power adapter
  • Mounting kit
  • Quick Start Guide

4. Wyze Alternative: Blink Mini

echo show compatible cameras

SEE IT AT AMAZON

New on the scene this year is the Blink Indoor Mini. In case you didn’t know, Amazon owns Blink, and this is essentially Amazon’s answer to the Wyze Cam. I think the thing that encourages me the most about this little camera is that it has scored so many positive reviews since being released such a short time ago.

Also, since this is an Amazon product, chances are they will have some great bundle deals with this camera and the Echo Show for events like Prime Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.  📰Update! I actually scored one of these on Prime Day a few weeks back in a bundle with my new Echo Show 8 for $5!

Here’s a pic of my latest Amazon purchase (still in the box sigh):

echo show cameras blink mini box

I haven’t had a chance to take this out of the box yet, but I plan on creating a setup video over at my new YouTube channel very soon.

📰 Update! I finally got this out of the box. You can check out my review comparing Blink Mini vs Wyze Cam and Wyze Cam Pan. YouTube video to come!

Pros

  • Most affordable Blink camera
  • 1080p HD video quality at an affordable price
  • Motion detection and two-way audio
  • Night vision
  • Smartphone alerts
  • Speaker Output
  • Alexa/Echo Show commands to stream live, play recorded clips, and arm/disarm the camera

Cons

  • Video quality not as good as Wyze Cam
  • Requires Blink Sync Module 2 to backup video clips
  • Can’t record without fee-based Cloud service

Dimensions

  • 2 in. x 1.9 in. x 1.4 in. (50 mm x 49 mm x 36 mm)
  • 1.7 ounces (48 grams)

What’s in the Box

  • Blink Mini camera (depends on the quantity selected)
  • 1 stand (attached)
  • 2 mounting screws (per camera)
  • 1 USB cable
  • 1 power adapter

5. Most Versatile: Ring Stickup Cam

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

Next on my list of Echo Show compatible cameras is the Ring Stickup Cam. This is an outstanding camera from the leading video doorbell maker Ring that works with Alexa to launch crystal clear 1080 HD video using your voice. Like the Wyze Cam, it has night vision. Unlike Wyze, it has Cloud recording for all of the motion detected on the camera for a very low monthly fee.

Also like the Wyze Cam, the Stick Up Cam will alert you on your mobile when motion is detected. The best thing about this camera is its versatility. You have three options: wired, battery-powered, and solar-powered. The camera can also be used both inside and out. If you opt to mount it outside, you can get a solar panel that will keep it charged for you 24×7. You can price out the various options including solar at the Amazon product page (see button above). The solar panel looks like this:

best echo show compatible cameras

You can use the Ring Spotlight Cam to see, hear, and even speak to outside visitors from your phone, tablet, or PC. When motion is detected outside your home, the Spotlight Cam springs into action. It will send alerts to your iOS, Android, Mac, or Windows 10 devices. Unlike other products featured here, it also includes LED light strips and a siren.

You can also control the siren remotely—i.e., set it off if you see a shady-looking character in your video feed! Set up is easy. The camera and the solar panel contain all of the required hardware that you need to mount the camera on the inside or outside of your home. This is a good place for a stickup!

💁Pro Tip: Make sure you fully charge the Ring and connect it to Wi-Fi before you mount it.

Pros

  • It is the only camera here that offers three power options: Wired, Wireless, and Solar.
  • You can use it inside as well as outside.
  • You can place it on a flat surface or mount it to a wall or ceiling.
  • The 80-degree viewing area will let you get a full view of most large rooms and good sized yards.
  • Live view via intuitive Ring app
  • Add a Ring Protect Basic Plan for $3/month and record all your videos, review up to 60 days of footage
  • Share videos with friends, family, neighbors and more.

Cons

  • As Erin points out, the camera will not work in temps below 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 Celsius).
  • There is no free Cloud storage plan, so you’ll need to commit to at least a few dollars a month if you want to playback video.

Video Review: Ring Stickup Cam

Here’s an excellent review of the Stickup Cam features and installation from our friends at TechGadgetsCanada.com:


Erin, are you single? Call me! 🤙 LOL.

6. Most Innovative: Logitech Circle 2

echo show compatible cameras

SEE IT AT AMAZON

Next on my list of Echo Show compatible cameras is the Logitech Circle 2.  This wi-fi connected home security camera from the innovators at Logitech records 10 to 60-second videos when motion is detected. It then stores the video footage in a secure, private cloud. It works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, and it will allow you to stream video to your Show or Spot.

Depending on your camera model and settings, the length of time you can stream the feed may vary. The feed automatically times out if you’ve exceeded the streaming limit for your camera. You can reopen the feed at any time by asking Alexa to show your camera again. To show your camera feed, you just activate Alexa and say, “Show [camera name].” The Circle has many similar features to the other cameras we reviewed. These include:

  •  Night vision
  • Smart alerts with snapshots
  • Two-way talk

Pros

  • The best looking camera of the bunch in my opinion.
  • Mobile alerts display snapshot of detected motion.
  • Built for indoor and outdoor use.
  • Works with Alexa, Homekit, and Google Assistant.
  • Night Vision, 2-Way Talk, Alerts, Free 24-Hours Storage
  • A 180-degree wide-angle lens gives it the most coverage out of cameras we tested.
  • The free daily smart time-lapse briefing gives you a 30-second time-lapse video recapping the most important moments of your day. Cool.

Cons

  • Access to some advanced features is via paid subscription only (e.g., person detection).
  • Some customers have complained that the notifications don’t go out fast enough.
  • Others have complained that the battery drains too fast., although it looks like this has been addressed in the newer models.  Battery life depends on use. The company provides the following guide to help owners estimate battery life. This seems reasonable to me.

Check out this video review from CNET of the wired model (the wireless features are essentially the same):


Logitech Circle Alexa Commands

To view your camera’s live stream:

“Alexa, show me the Front door camera.”

To stop watching the live stream:

“Alexa, stop the Front door camera.”

To see the most recent recording:

“Alexa, show the latest event from the Front door camera.”

  • Privacy Cover

7. Best Video Quality: Arlo Pro 3

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

If video quality is your primary concern, then Arlo Pro is worth a look. It is more expensive than the other Echo Show compatible cameras listed here, and the quality output you get on the Show or Spot itself is going to be negligible. However, if you want to hook this up to your TV, HD smartphone, or video monitor, the quality is going to be AWESOME.

By awesome, I mean it is twice as sharp as the feed from the other cameras here. This really is the main selling point of this camera. Other special features include enhanced color night vision and a built-in siren and spotlight. The premium storage plans after the one-year are up are around $10 bucks a month, but if you are already paying for a home security system, this can save you money over time.

Pros

  • 2K UHD video quality (yes that is 1/2 ultra high def folks, just like on Netflix).
  • Works indoors and out.
  • Review up to 30 days of Cloud footage.
  • Works great as part of a multi-camera home security setup.
  • 180-degree diagonal field of view reduces the “fish-eye” effect.
  • Enhanced night vision in color.
  • Two-way audio.
  • Include siren and spotlight.
  • Includes 1 Year of Arlo smart Premier service with rolling 3-day cloud recordings (for 1 camera).

Cons

  • It’s expensive.
  • A few customers have reported problems with getting 4K video quality.
  • At least one customer complained that the siren isn’t loud enough.

8. Doorbell Camera: Ring Video Doorbell Pro

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

OK, ok, this is not really a typical “video camera” sure [or is it?].  If your goal is to monitor your front door, my review of the best Echo Show compatible cameras would be remiss if I didn’t include at least one video doorbell option. And you can’t go wrong with the award-winning Ring Video Doorbell Pro.

Packed with features like 1080 P HD video, motion-activated alerts, and easy DIY installation, the Ring video doorbell is a great value for a camera that works with Echo Show, especially if your goal is to monitor your front door or replace an existing doorbell. You will need to have an existing doorbell /wiring in place though or you are going to need to call up your handy brother-in-law, er I mean an electrician.

Pros

  • 1080 p
  • Answer your door from anywhere
  • Interchangeable faceplates let you switch colors (Satin Nickel, Pearl, Venetian, and Black)
  • The camera also doubles as an Echo doorbell
  • Customize motion detection to focus on coverage areas you want
  • Connects to existing wiring so no battery required
  • Automatically see a live view of your camera on Echo devices with a screen.

Cons

  • Requires “Ring Protect Plan” to see, save, and share videos and photos (low monthly fee)
  • Need to say: “Alexa, talk to the front door” to initial two-way talk via Echo Show

Dimensions

4.50 in x 1.85 in x 0.8 in (11.43 cm x 4.67 cm x 2.03 cm)

What’s in the Box

  • Ring Video Doorbell Pro
  • 4 Colored Faceplates
  • 1 Retrofit Plate (for an upgrade from Ring Video Doorbell)
  • Installation Tools and screws
  • USB Charging Cable
  • User Manual
  • Security Sticker

9. Budget Nightvision: Wansview

echo show compatible cameras

SEE IT AT AMAZON

Coming in at number 9 on my list of best Echo Show compatible cameras is another budget option, the Wansview camera. I wanted to make sure I included at least one product that was a little less mainstream than the others. I arrived at this camera from Wansview as it enjoys some of the highest ratings and deepest praise that I have come across for both a pet camera as well as a baby monitor.

Full disclosure: while I don’t own this camera (yet), my research has shown that parents (of both babies and pets) consistently give this little guy high praise both for its consistency and reliability as well as its crisp night vision images.

Like others on my list of best Echo Show compatible cameras, it includes 1050 P HD video, as well as two-way audio, and smart motion alerts.  Unlike some of the budget models, it also adds Smart Pan/Tilt/Zoom as well as “Crystal Night Vision” technology.  If you are looking to try out a camera as a baby /pet monitor and don’t want to break this bank, this camera seems an excellent option.

Pros

  • Inexpensive 1080 P option
  • Ideal for budget baby cam or pet cam
  • Crystal Night vision technology appears to work great
  •  350° pan, 90° tilt, 110° field of view
  • Supports both Cloud storage and local Micro SD right on the camera [card sold separately]

Cons

5G Wi-Fi networks not supported [true of most cameras here]


Dimensions

5.2 x 4.8 x 3.5 inches

What’s in the Box

  • Packing List
  • 1 pc Wansview WiFi Camera
  • 1 pc UL Power Adapter
  • 1 pc 5 foot Micro USB Cable(Required to be plugged in while working)
  • 1 pc Quick Installation Guide
  • Mounting Accessories (Bracket, Screws,)

10. Indoor/Outdoor Premium: Arlo Ultra

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

Since I already covered the Arlo Pro earlier in this review of Echo Show compatible cameras, I won’t continue to sing the praises of the super crisp video display that the Arlo cameras provide over the competition. Oh wait….

However, I did want to give an even more advanced option for those where video quality is of paramount importance. Enter the Arlo Ultra. This is the only camera on my list to provide 4K UHD video quality. Yeah, that would be just like Netflix people! This is one of those Echo Show compatible cameras that is more expensive sure, but it might be worth it for those who can afford it and if UHD video quality is of primary importance.

Designed for indoor and outdoor use, the 3-camera kit also includes night vision, 180° field of view, 2-way audio, a spotlight, siren, and it’s compatible with both Alexa and Apple Homekit. This could be a viable option for someone who wants to replace a whole-house security system.

Pros

  • 4K Ultra High Def (UHD) video quality
  • Impressive 180° wide-angle field of view
  • Auto image correction reduces fish eye effect
  • Color night vision
  • Integrated spotlight
  • Integrated siren
  • Noise-canceling technology for audio
  • Includes 90 Days of Arlo Smart Premier service with rolling 30-day cloud recordings Auto-zoom and tracking
  • Affordable monthly charges

Cons

  • It’s more expensive than other options here
  • Sells out fast, availability can be limited over at Amazon

Dimensions

3.5 x 2.05 x 3.09 inches

  • Ultra SmartHub [Required]
  • For each camera in a kit:
    • 1 Camera + Battery
    • 1 Power Adapter
    • 1 Magnetic Charge Cable
    • 1 Magnetic Mount
    • 1 Wall Mount Screw Kit
    • 1 Quick Start Guide
    • 1 Decal

11. Budget Two-pack: Blink Indoor

echo show compatible cameras SEE IT AT AMAZON

Last – but not least! – on my list of the best Echo Show compatible cameras is the Blink Indoor Cam.  Fully wireless, this superior little plug-in camera lets you keep tabs on any room in your home, and you can easily add additional cameras to cover additional rooms as well.

Like all of the Echo Show compatible cameras in this post, it will work with Amazon Alexa for voice control, and it also has two-way talk so you can communicate with your kids, pets, nanny, or whomever else you like. As the product name says, this camera was designed for indoor use, so I wouldn’t suggest using it outside. Perhaps its best feature is its whopping two-year battery life so you can feel secure for a long time after it is installed.

Pros

  • Alexa commands let you stream live video, play recorded clips, let you arm/disarm the cam and more
  • Two-year battery life
  • Simple set up
  • Custom motion detection and privacy zones
  • Two-way talk
  • 1080p video resolution

Cons

  • Requires either synch module or Cloud storage plan (after free trial) to store videos
  • Does not provide continuous live feed
  • Dimensions
  • 71 x 71 x 31 mm
  • 48 grams

Dimensions

71 x 71 x 34 mm

What’s In the Box

What Is the Best Echo Show Camera?

Despite some minor shortcomings, all of the Echo Show compatible cameras I tested provide great video quality and convenience features you would expect from a smart video camera. Also, the advertised integration with the Echo Show works pretty flawlessly.

All in all, I like the Ring cameras for their versatility and fuller field of view. I also like the Logitech Circle 2 best for its innovative features like the wider field of view and daily time-lapse briefing. Plus, it also looks really cool on my bookshelf! However, the price is a bit more, so you’ll need to weigh that against the additional features.

For a budget option, you can’t go wrong with either Wyze Cam model here.

Finally, the Arlo Pro footage will look stunning on your big screen TV as well as your Echo Show.


Do You Really Need a Security Camera?

To be honest, I was super skeptical about these before I bought one of these Echo Show compatible cameras. Why would I want to peer inside my own empty apartment, I thought.

echo show compatible security cameras

But then I started reading some of the reviews on Amazon. One guy tells an amazing story about how his Echo Show compatible camera saved his dog’s life while he was at the office. He received a notification showing that his house had caught fire! So, he called a neighbor and the neighbor was able to get the dog out of the house just in time.

One guy tells an amazing story about how his Echo Show compatible camera saved his dog’s life.

There are also several posts among Amazon’s ratings of video footage showing actual robbers getting caught on tape inside customers’ homes and apartments. According to statistics published by Safewise, a property crime occurs every 3.9 seconds in the US.

Pretty crazy.
