Echo Show / Sonos 1 / Ring Pro Interaction

I have a Sonos One in my living room and a Echo Show 5 in my entryway. I also have a Ring Pro doorbell. When someone is at the door, I can say "Answer Deck Door" and the Echo Show will use the Ring skill to show the doorbell camera. I have the Sonos One configured as an Alexa device.

The problem I have is that sometimes the Sonos One answers me instead of the Echo Show. There is no Ring skill for the Sonos, so it gives an error message. The Echo Show clearly hears me as well, because I get a blue bar at the bottom of the screen. The Echo Show and Sonos One negotiate and decide the Sonos One is closer, so it answers.

Is there any way to make the Echo Show answer me or have the Sonos pass the question to the Echo Show?
