Doorbell cam feature

TL:DR - Feature to use a voice command to display the simpslisafe doorbell cam on my echo show.

I am considering discontinuing my subscription and switching to another like Blink. I recently bought an echo show and can view my Arlo cams with a voice command on it. Simplisafe only works with Alexa by allowing you to set the alarm, I don't need that feature and never use it. What I would like, is to use a voice command to display the simpslisafe doorbell cam on my echo show. This is a quality of life improvement for the system to which if they don't add that feature soon, I will discontinue my subscription. Veiwing it on my phone can be a hassle most times.

Agree, there really needs to be way to have the doorbell trigger a video feed on a dedicated device - tablet, hub, or even a simplisafe tablet if need be - and the ability to communicate through the device. The phone is a nice feature but inconvenient for 99% of the time when you are at home. This is a major failing of the system atm.
