Home Arduino Logistics: Send custom commands to your Arduino via your Echo
Were you a bit disappointed with the home automation abilities of the Echo and wanted to add your own? Using my skill (Home Arduino Logistics, AKA HAL) now you can. My code creates the bridge between your Echo and your Arduino, using this you can now have your echo do almost any home automation task that you can design. To get more info (including the code and setup instructions) check out my website:
