I understand that Ring Skills (for video) work only for Echo Show or Fire TV, so I am trying to use the "Motion Sensor" capability of my Ring Doorbell via an Alexa Routine like follows:
1) WHEN "device" (ring doorbell motion sensor) DETECTED MOVEMENT THEN Alex Say "Intruder"
But when trying to create the Routine, the save will fail because Alexa couldn't find any audio device.
How is that possible if Alexa lives "inside" de "Audio Device" SONOS BEAM?
Any help will be appreciated!

I just did a test to confirm this and yes, I can run the same routine you were doing on the couple of echos I have, but none of the sonos devices, the ecobee thermostat (w/Alexa), or the fire tvs (except the fire tv cube).
I don't know if Amazon intentionally left certain features for it's own echos exclusively, if there were hardware constraints, or something of that nature. I do wish that marketing folks had coming up with more distinct naming conventions so customers could get a better understanding of what exactly they are buying.
