I have been searching online for a way to trigger a smart plug connected to Alexa from a Raspberry Pi. I have found lots of resources and examples that create Lambda Functions and custom skills, but I am not sure whether all these are required in my case. I have a smart plug connected to Alexa and controlled by voice as normal. I want to be able to control the device from my raspberry Pi without requiring to be activated by voice. I already completed the Code-Based Linking (CBL) for Other Devices and Platforms from my Raspberry Pi as described here:
After successfully completing it, I am able to register and get an access token in order to communicate with my Echo Dot. What are the next steps to be able to control my smart plug from my Raspberry Pi? Do I need to create a Smart Home Skill and a Lambda function?
Many thanks in advance,
