Expose your Amazon Echo Smart Home devices to Siri and HomeKit by using a Raspberry PI with a speaker to speak commands to a spare Amazon Echo using Homebridge.

This is a demo YouTube video and blog post.

First get Homebridge installed and running on your Raspberry PI. Plug a speaker into the Raspberry PI and position it next to your Amazon Echo. Ensure your speaker is used for audio output.

Next clone this repository, and edit your Homebridge config.json to include your Amazon Echo Smart Home devices:

"description": "Name the devices the way you name them in Alexa.",
"accessories": [
        {
          "accessory": "AlexaSwitch",
          "name": "Kitchen"
        },
{
          "accessory": "AlexaSwitch",
          "name": "Bathroom"
        },
{
          "accessory": "AlexaSwitch",
          "name": "Everything"
        },
{
          "accessory": "AlexaSwitch",
          "name": "Lounge"
        }
    ]
}

Finally run homebridge, telling it about the Alexa plugin:

homebridge -D -P ~/homebridge-alexa/
