Amazon Echo ESP8266 control, with natural speech commands

great job. How long before WeMo/Google/Amazon works out they are being used indirectly by fake WeMo devices and closes this avenue off? (But that may prevent all the existing WeMo devices from working so they may not plug it!)


#265

I have both but with the same name, anyhow, if I understood the debug log correctly, the fact that this messages appears means that something is sent from Alexa to esp and back. Moreover I’m plenty of other devices running at 2.4 and communicating with Alexa.

@DaleSchultz While Belkin and Phillips may have an interest in locking out emulators, Amazon really doesn’t. I’ve been using these devices for more than 2 years now without any serious problems. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be hiccups as Amazon continues to evolve Alexa. Adapting to them is just part of the price of enjoying this hobby.

aha! solved! with latest esp core you shall set LwIP Variant to “v1.4 Higher Bandwidth”. You can change it from the Tools menu in the Arduino IDE


#268

ah yes, but Google may tell WeMo to clean up their act or they cant play on Google…
