Luzifer / FHEMHue

fhemhue is a bridge application able to expose FHEM devices to be controlled using Amazon Alexa enabled devices like Amazon Echo.

The application needs to be deployed in the same network as the Alexa enabled device as it uses UPNP for device discovery. Additionally it requires a telnet connection to be configured in your FHEM instance.

Setup

  1. Enable a telnet connection in your FHEM instance:
defmod telnetPort telnet 7072 global
  1. Compile a config.yml file containing mappings of your FHEM devices to speakable names in the language you set your Alexa to - you can take a look into the example folder for my configuration. (For example German speaking Alexa is not able to switch on the "Dashboard" device because it does understand "Alexa, Sport on"...)
---

telnet:
  ip: 127.0.0.1
  port: 7072

devices:
# - id: <fhem device id>
#   name: <speakable name in Alexas language>
#   states:
#     on: <fhem state to set: "set <id> <states.on>" (defaults to "on")>
#     off: <fhem state to set: "set <id> <states.off>" (defaults to "off")>
  1. Inside the configuration set the IP and port to be used to connect to the telnetPort opened in step 1
  2. Set up a start script / systemd service (example unit file in example folder)
  3. Go to your Alexa control panel into the "Smart Home" section and let Alexa discover your devices: You now should see your devices specified in the config.yml file.
