node-red-contrib-wemo-emulator 0.4.0

Why might you want to emulate Wemo? Well I wanted to be able to control my Node-RED Raspberry Pi using my Amazon Echo. The Echo has Wemo support built in so I thought I'd give it a try.

npm install node-red-contrib-wemo-emulator

Why might you want to emulate Wemo? Well I wanted to be able to control my Node-RED Raspberry Pi using my Amazon Echo. The Echo has Wemo support built in so I thought I'd give it a try.

It's pretty cool to be able to say 'Alexa, turn my garden watering system on' and my Pi turns on the outdoor watering system.

This Node-RED node is only a slim wrapper around the marvellous wemore Wemo library written by Daniel Leong.

Installation

Change directory to your node red installation:

$ npm install node-red-contrib-wemo-emulator

Configuration

Drag the node on to your workspace, configure it as below and then ask Alexa to discover devices.

Config Description
Node Name This is the name of the node as it appears in the Node-RED workspace
Friendly Name This is the name that you'll see in the list of devices known to Alexa, it's also the name that you use in voice commands
Unique ID This ID should be unique across all the wemo-emulator nodes in your workspace
Port Wemore can automatically select a port to listen on, but it is recommended that you enter a unique port and increment it for each wemo emulator node you add to your workspace. This ensures that the port never changes.
