So I got into the Amazon Echo beta SDK, they still don’t want people sharing code and such - so I wanted to share what I can without getting into any details that they shared with us.
NOTE: Not going to get into the SDK, docs, code, etc - until they say we can… sorry… if you are in the SDK and PM me I’d be happy to chat
I made a quick video of the Echo driving my lights and sonos, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_N83OkPBdw
You could probably do all this with just a smartthings app, but I used a bridge app to do the communication between smartthings web services and the amazon cloud.
I used some smartthings REST API sample code I found to make a quick endpoint to drive my house with oauth for auth.
Then made a simple app with just a couple commands; turn on some lights, turn off some lights, play the X, pause the X, etc.
As soon as amazon says it’s ok to share code I’ll post a write-up of the whole thing in detail… but at this point, I think it’s great and people are going to find it pretty easy to build really cool stuff.
(not sure if they will allow 3rd party apps, or they will bring them all in-house like they did with the wemo stuff)
So this might not be relevant - just points to more reasons they don’t want people discussing the SDK. It’s still super early.
