Edit: I’ll overhaul this main post once we find a solution, test it, and put it more in a tutorial like manner so others can repeat it once we’ve got it figured out, in the meantime I’m brainstorming possible solution paths here.
Currently talking with @Tacticalsatan and we’re trying to figure out the best way to make it so that when he scans his nfc implant he can have his phone send a command to trigger lights and potentially outlets through his amazon echo. I’m open to coding some stuff to interact with the alexa api once I figure out how, but was wondering if anyone has had any experience with tasker or various other automation apps to refine the process. If possible I’d like to avoid coding and all the other mess that comes with working through amazon’s systems.
Edit: Looks like integrating tasker with home assistant on a raspberry pi server might be the way to go, going to continue looking for other routes in the future
Edit 2: Alexa pi & autovoice seem like potential solutions to try.
