Alexa integration or HA-Bridge support

I wluld like to control Mozilla IOT with Alexa, The way i did it with domoticz is with HA-Bridge (https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge/wiki/HA-Bridge-FAQs) witch is an philips hue emulator running on another raspberry pi.
Could this be used for Mozilla in some way?

@andrenatal is currently looking at Alexa integration. See also issue 654.

The idea is to get an Alexa skill to call the gateway’s Web Thing API directly.

I wondered where we are with this, as we are now in August 2018 ?

Not much progress yet I’m afraid, but it’s getting quite high up our backlog.

let me know, when testers are required…

I am just getting started with my home iot. Im not super impressed with any voice control. But I think it is a neat feature and definitely something to keep up with.

I think integrating Alexa and Mozilla bridge would be a great start.

The key word “Alexa, tell gateway to…” seems like a good way to segregate the systems.

I will also be happy to help with testing.
Count me in as well.

Ohkayyy does it work?

I tried Tim’s implementation:


and it seemed to configure ok, but I did not get it to work. Maybe try yourself and if unsuccessful, post issues for Tim in his github repo.

There are even better, private approaches to voice commands in the works. The existing voice-controller add-on needs to be transitioned into a separate installable application, that will communicate with the gateway using the web thing API. The cool thing about these other approaches is that they work locally, without the internet. :slight_smile:
