Use Echo Dot for NR voice commands?


is it possible to use an Echo Dot (5. Gen) as speech control for my Node Rede devices ?

There are many nodes for integrating with Alexa, from adding virtual devices and sending commands etc, at the node library. Library - Node-RED
Whether they work with Gen 5 is something you will need to check by reading help text or trying them.


I would personally recommend starting off with @hardillb Alexa eco-system

as it's the most reliable one I use

If you need more flexibility then try out node-red-contib-remote-applestrudel but be warned that it's unreliable at times

Or node-red-contrib-alexa-smart-home which appears to be a fork of hardill's node (also works with Google Home)
