    Forked from cakebake/node-red-contrib-alexa-remote-cakebaked which was forked from 586837r/node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2 to keep dependencies up to date.

    This is a collection of Node-RED nodes for interacting with the Alexa API. You can emulate routine behaviour, control and query your devices and much more!

    All functionality is from alexa-remote2. The goal is to expose all of its functionality in node-red nodes.

    Migration

    In case you've already installed Node-RED nodes from alexa-cakebaked or alexa-remote2 the installation won't work due to conflicting names. You have 2 options:

    Command Line

    node-red admin remove node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2
    node-red admin remove node-red-contrib-alexa-cakebaked
    node-red admin install node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2-applestrudel
    

    Node-RED UI

    1. Export all of your flows to a file (Menu -> Export -> all flows -> Download)
    2. Delete all flows (Double Click on each Tab -> Delete)
    3. Delete configuration node alex-remote-account node (Menu -> Configuration Nodes) and write down settings (Cookie path, refresh time)
    4. Deploy empty state
    5. Uninstall node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2 or node-red-contrib-alexa-cakebaked (Menu -> Manage Palette -> Palette -> Nodes -> remove)
    6. Search and install node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2-applestrudel
    7. Reimport all flows from file (Menu -> Import -> Clipboard -> select a file to upload)
    8. Restart Node-RED

    Setup

    1. Drag an Alexa Routine node into your flow.

    2. Create a new Account by pressing the edit button at the right side of the Account field.

    3. Choose a Service Host and Page and Language depending on your location. For example:

      Service Host Page Language
      USA pitangui.amazon.com amazon.com en-US
      UK alexa.amazon.co.uk amazon.co.uk en-UK
      GER layla.amazon.de amazon.de de-DE
      FR layla.amazon.de amazon.fr de-DE
      ITA alexa.amazon.it amazon.it it-IT
      AUS alexa.amazon.com.au amazon.com.au en-US
      ES alexa.amazon.es amazon.es es-ES
    4. Set This IP to the ip of your Node-RED server

    5. Enter a File Path to save the authentication result so following authentications will be automatic.

    6. Add the new Account.

    7. Deploy

    8. Follow the url you see in the node status

    9. Log in, wait until you see the node status ready

    10. Write "Hello World!" in the Alexa Routine node text field.

    11. Select a device in the Alexa Routine node devices field.

    Now trigger the Alexa Routine Node with any message and your Alexa will say "Hello World!". (Hopefully!)
