Ring doorbell and Amazon devices
We’ve had a Ring for about a year now, and I’m not sure what I or my kids have done to an old fire stick that makes it turn the TV on when someone presses the doorbell button. I get the alerts on my phone and our Echo show, but we recently moved an old TV out to our deck and I’ll notice it has been turned on after a ring alert. Not the motion alerts, only when someone has pressed the button. Any ideas on where to change settings on this?

In the Alexa app, go to the doorbell settings. Then go to announcement devices and unselect the Fire TV stick.

Thanks, that did it. I had noticed that if I pressed the home button on the Firestick remote it would automatically turn the TV on, so I figured it was something to do with triggering the stick that did it. Just couldn't see it anywhere in the stick settings on the TV.
