Alexa Controlled Relay
d. bodnar 10-06-2017

 

Introduction
I wanted a way to have Alexa turn off the stereo in my workshop.  I found the code below on GitHub
https://github.com/kakopappa/arduino-esp8266-alexa-multiple-wemo-switch

It is easy to use and can be directly connected to Alexa.

Hardware
Wemos D1 -  the program toggles pin D2 which is connected to a 5 volt relay on my relay board - the board takes 5 volts (there is no regulator) and powers both the relay and the ESP8266
 

Code
This code can be used to toggle one relay with Alexa - device name in this case is "stereo".

Use Discover Devices on phone app for Alexa - it should find "stereo"

A zip file containing all of the subroutines is here:

// working d. bodnar 11-30-2016 with mosfet
// used a 7805 to drop 12 to 5 and fed that to the VCC input
//  1K resistor from pin 4 to base of mosfet
//  works well!
// FIXED with folder delete explained here   https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino/issues/1387
