Welcome to Alexa Home! The goal of this project is to use your Amazon Echo* to control various home automation software. Interested in integrating a new module? Check out some of the code and send in a pull request! Glad to help out.
The repository includes two components: a web scraper to get commands from Amazon Echo history (
watir-login.rb) and a Sinatra server that takes those commands and, using various modules, triggers certain actions.

######*New Hue Module The new Hue module adds several features. 1) It can handle multi-word light and group names. 2) Full scene support: recall scenes, and save current light configuration as a new scene. 3) Any command that can be given to lights can be scheduled. See hue readme.md
