It is theoretically possible but it just takes a lot more work and there could be some severe bandwidth limitations depending on exactly how we can make it work.  These types of devices talk through the cloud, not on your local network.

 

 

Got it. It's not in my top 10 so if it happens great, if not I won't miss it.

It also requires a working https setup on the server so, until that becomes more automatic and easier to do (we're working on it) this will probably wait.

Go to Echo Show>Settings>Device Options>Web Options. Choose a Web Browser

 

Have Echo Show open chosen web-browser

 

Type in your In-Home (LAN) access: address (Make sure the Echo Show is on the same network as the server)

 

I was able to load access to the web-interface and watch my content. 

 

I haven't used the voice controls or attempted to play music to my everywhere group yet, will update if that all works.

Works great although a few clicks to get there. I didn't realize there was a browser built-in to the Echo Show. I'm going to try starting it by speech now.

Thanks.
