Mozilla is currently working on the API standard "Web of Things" to control IoT devices. This is very flexible and allows the connection of almost any IoT device. By implementing the standard in the devices, different models can be controlled via the same software. The standard allows simultaneous control of one or more devices via the same API endpoint.
I therefore ask if it is possible to implement the "Web of Things" standard as a client and thus enable the connection of e.g. the Mozilla IoT Gateway to Alexa. The simple implementation of the standard not only makes it easier for hobbyists to control their own Smart Home systems via Alexa, but also saves manufacturers from having to develop their own skills. This will drive the whole standard forward and not only the number of consumers of the standardized API but also the number of publishers will increase.
In addition, calling the API in the local network would be extremely practical. This would not require a tunnel to the Internet, but the Echo device can directly send API requests to a Mozilla IoT gateway or another gateway on the local network.
I am personally enthusiastic about the Echo hardware, but I would also like to control self-built and developed devices via Alexa. But that's when I reach the limits of the system. The development or hosting of my own skill is out of the question for me, because I want to think bigger and not selfish. If my suggestion is not implemented or cannot be implemented, I am unfortunately forced to switch to another language assistant.
