node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2

npm downloads

This is a collection of Node-RED nodes for interacting with the Alexa API. You can emulate routine behaviour, control and query your devices and much more!

All functionality is from alexa-remote2. The goal is to expose all of alexa-remote2s functionality in node-red nodes.

Setup

  1. Drag an Alexa Routine node into your flow.

  2. Create a new Account by pressing the edit button at the right side of the Account field.

  3. Choose a Service Host and Page and Language depending on your location. For example:

    Service HostPageLanguage
    USApitangui.amazon.comamazon.comen-US
    UKalexa.amazon.co.ukamazon.co.uken-UK
    GERlayla.amazon.deamazon.dede-DE
    ITAalexa.amazon.itamazon.itit-IT
    AUSalexa.amazon.com.auamazon.com.auen-US
  4. Set This IP to the ip of your Node-RED server

  5. Enter a File Path to save the authentication result so following authentications will be automatic.

  6. Add the new Account.

  7. Deploy

  8. Follow the url you see in the node status

  9. Log in, wait until you see the node status ready

  10. Write "Hello World!" in the Alexa Routine node text field.

  11. Select a device in the Alexa Routine node devices field.

Now trigger the Alexa Routine Node with any message and your Alexa will say "Hello World!". (Hopefully!)

Easy to deploy, has wide range of features - namely TTS for Speak and Announcements to any Alexa device in the home. There's other features too, but the Routine node is what I have been using most.

It is easy to use and to get Hello World to one of the devices, after that it is getting more and more difficult.
