How to remote trigger display of arlo camera on echo show device without saying "Alexa, show camera"

I would like to remotely trigger the display of an arlo camera stream on an echo show device without having to say "Alexa, show camera" out loud.

Or is the even the more generic approach possible to send text snippets(i.e. via curl) to an echo device to emulate the spoken word?

It isn't possible to trigger skills w/o voice interaction for the Echo Show.

If there's a good use case, I suggest submitting a feature request and we can forward it to the product teams.
