Heres my 'Alexa-controlled' servo driver, could be used for anything where a simple movement is needed - close the blinds, bolt the door, kick the cat, prod the dog:

The project relies on Kakopappa's excellent code which emulates a commercial Belkin Wemo switch. He snooped the traffic between a real Wemo and Alexa, and by recreating the appropriate responses with clever code, he has managed to convince Alexa that she's controlling a Wemo switch.
The only drawback of this approach is the fixed dialogue - "Alexa, turn XYZ off" and "Alexa, turn XYZ on" but its perfect for two-state applications.

By the way, are there any Sci-Fi fans here who enjoy "The Hundred" on TV? We've deviated a long, long way from Kass Morgan's books haven't we?

Well, I imagine Alexa to look like Ali the 'evil' AI who (it transpires) actually had our best interests at heart ...
