Home Automation System - OpenHAB 3 - 27. The profiles, a nice and useful feature [Versione in italiano]

by Marco Lamanna

Twenty-sixth chapter related to OpenHAB 3.

In this video we see how to integrate Amazon Alexa in OpenHAB, to be able to control the devices managed by OpenHAB via voice and through the Alexa app on the smartphone.

As in the previous video regarding the integration with Google Home, we integrate in Alexa a button for a light and a temperature and humidity sensor, currently used on our test OpenHAB.

As an example we will see how to drive these items from Amazon Alexa and how OpenHAB reacts accordingly.

As a final test, we will use our voice to turn on the light.

We will then go to configure OpenHAB in the cloud to integrate it into the google home app.

This video does not pretend to be a tutorial. The hope is that it will help someone.
