How are these IOT devices such as smart plugs, lights and other stuff like thermostats able to communicate and link up to samsung smart things and/or alexa?  What protocol are they using?  I am speaking in very general terms here so I can understand.

Perhaps a link or two to some reference material or article on how to get it done would help.

Thanks a lot.

Most IOT devices talk to Alexa and Google Home over Wifi. Alexa has a development environment provided by Amazon. You can go to:

https://developer.amazon.com/docs/ask-overviews/build-skills-with-the-alexa-skills-kit.html

and learn about how to develop a skill for Alexa.

Has anyone done any samples of this that can show me around?  Maybe have some sample code to share?
