I am fairly new to the whole smart home and device hacking scene and would like some guidance

I currently have an Amazon Alexa and a Playstation 4,

I am looking to buy an arduino after being inspired by a video of someone hacking a coffee machine to turn on. Would it be possible to turn on my PS4 using the Arduino via a web app or even voice activation.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Look at this product. It makes it very easy to control the appliances, and you are not in any danger of getting shocked or setting the house on fire.

Thanks, only issue is that i am from the UK so a USA plug wouldnt work.

In Theory I would like to press a button and the playstation turn itself on without me having to turn it on. It always has mains power going into it so i assume its more of a device hack question

I'm pretty sure that you can turn on the PS4 with a remote control, right?

Make your Arduino send out that code via infrared. Problem solved.

Not that i am aware of? Its a sensor which turns the playstation on not a button, So i guess its figuring out how to activate that sensor
