Unlock your building entrance using Alexa with Ring Intercom

To unlock the building door using Alexa, say Alexa, unlock [Ring Intercom Name] or Alexa, open [Ring Intercom Name]. If you have enabled Voice code for unlock in the Alexa app, Alexa will then ask you for your voice code to complete the action.
