Amazon Alexa️ Skill Integration

Amazon’s Alexa voice technology is opening new doors for user convenience; reducing the friction of daily interactions, and bringing new rhythms of life and routine.

We integrated an Amazon Alexa skill for voice control and monitoring for a cohort of equipment users. One-time user account linking connects each user with their own equipment. Commands are routed and dispatched to control nodes geographically distributed and co-located with equipment installations, via a secure, resilient, high-capacity network backbone tunneled through the internet. Cloud software components are high-capacity Python WSGI components behind nginx servers.

A companion web-site allows further configuration between linked accounts and equipment identification.

As principal system architect/developer, I architected, designed and developed the entire system end to end.
