Amazon Alexa, using a Home Automation Bridge

This is a home automation project leveraging on an Amazon Alexa (Echo or Echo Dot) control of Wiwo devices via Amazon Home Bridge. The Amazon Home Bridge is a JAVA 8 application which issues GET URL calls to turn on or off appliances.

Code is on Github.

You will need the following (a socket item 1 and an Alexa device ( 2 or 3) ):

  1. Orvibo Wi-Fi Smart Socket Outlet US Plug, Turn ON/OFF Electronics from Anywhere, White (WiWo-S20)
  2. All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – Black
  3. Amazon Echo – Black

Note, that this is a first attempt and will be making changes as time permits. It is possible that you can hook up other devices (Cujo, my vacuum cleaner) using the template on GitHub. Will be blogging those and adding new features.

Happy New Year – 2017 !!!
