node-red nodes for interacting with alexa
This is a collection of Node-RED nodes for interacting with the Alexa API. You can emulate routine behaviour, control and query your devices and much more!
All functionality is from alexa-remote2. The goal is to expose all of its functionality in node-red nodes.
