I recently received an Amazon Dot and fell in love with it almost instantly. I'm a home automation guy from way back and have played with voice recognition for some time. However the recognition with Alexa and the Dot is fantastic. I already had started to add a park feature to the Suntura using a very inexpensive $7 low voltage Wi-Fi module. This allows me to park the suntura from any where over the intenet using the companies Smartphone App. The only draw back was it was cloud based meaning if the internet was down no control! That's not good! I knew there were ways to flash the devices firmware to enable local control but was hoping the company would see the need for local control. Recently they announced they were going to provide Alexa integration. Very cool but local control would have been better. Tired of waiting for local control I flashed the Wi-Fi module. This still gives me control from anywhere via internet but I now have local control. With local control I now wanted Alexa control! ( I know never happy). Cool thing is the firmware I replaced with intergrates with the Smartthings app (provided you have a SmartThings hub) I don't have a hub. This didn't stop me as I'd been creating some software to utilize with Alexa and the BWS systems HA-Bridge( already capable of Alexa control). Simply adding the url of the Wi-Fi module into the HA-Bridge for a on and off command I was able to control the Suntura park via a Alexa voice command: "Alexa turn on Sun Tura Park" or "Alexa turn off Sun Tura Park"
