Can the Echo trigger RetrieveCameraStreamUriRequest?

I know that the RetrieveCameraStreamUriRequest API is used for Echo Show. When we asked the Echo "Alexa, show me front door camera", it will respond "Cameras don't support on this device". So my lambda doesn't get executed. Can we explicitly enable the API for Echo? So that I can redirect the camera URI to external display.

Best regards

No, if you use a smart home utterance on a device where it is not supported, you will get that error message and your Lambda function will not get triggered.
