Raspberry pi Alexa Smart Plug Control

Fri Dec 07, 2018 4:28 pm

Hi! I am going to be installing Alexa on my raspberry pi that runs in my magic mirror. However, can i use the alexa in my raspberry pi to control smart plugs? I can not seem to find any clear information about this online. Thanks in advance!

All depends on how you link to the plug but if the Pi can currently do it then you can through Alexa skills.

Have a look at https://www.hackster.io/awshome/awshome ... iot-a3d3dc for one method.
