Ring Video Doorbell 2 Inside Screen

I have bought a Ring Video Doorbell 2 and am thinking of putting a screen attached to an inside wall or similar and was wondering if a cheap tablet can be used for this and what would be suitable.

Any suggestions?

    any old wifi tablet or phone? that you no longer need/use is what I would have a go with.

    Ring support both Android and ios, so it works with any.

    I'm doing this with an old Samsung Galaxy TabS that was lying around unused. Put it on a stand on the kitchen bench and plugged into power. I've tried to automate things with Tasker so when a Ring doorbell press notification is received, it's automatically selected which opens the Ring app and displays the video feed. After a 60sec timeout the app is closed. This required a 3rd party Tasker plugin (NotificationListener I think it was). However, it doesn't seem to work reliably and I haven't bothered to troubleshoot much. Also be aware that (if it worked) every doorbell press would show up in the Ring history as "answered".

      I think you are try to automate it too much, its a bell concept, on demand (ring, click and view) or else get a Web Camera.
      Having said that, I got all the automation setup in ipad on the wall, but hardly use it. You are much closer to your phone these days.

        The point is that if someone rings the bell I can look over at the tablet from the kitchen table or couch and see who's at the door. I don't have to walk over to the tablet, hit the notification, and wait a few seconds for the app to open and connect to the camera. Why not automate those mundane steps?
