Bought an Amazon Echo Dot last weekend and spent a few off hours working on an app. Got to show it off to my boss yesterday so that was cool. "Alexa, ask Origin App for the wi-fi password." "Alexa, ask Origin App to page Jeff." "Alexa, open Origin App." "Alexa, ask Origin App for another fact." etc Wrote the AWS Lambda function myself from scratch, as well as the Intents/Utterances/Slots for the Alexa Skill itself. And this morning, I wired up an external power switch to the printer and have that working from Alexa. Although I've got the ASK/Lambda happy for the printer control/status, I now have to work up some sort of gateway to get it through the firewall so that Lambda can ultimately query/control the printer from inside my private IP space.
