Running external script - TTS Alexa

Question

So, dont shoot the newbie :)

 

What i want:  Let alexa speak out some actions, from a QA. Like when i open the shades, i can add a QA with a variable that inserts the words in a syntax that will run in a script on a external system.

 

What i acomplished: Shell script, that i run locally. Thats sends a TTS command to my Echo show. Alexa speaks! Works perfect.

 

So, i have a virtualbox running with ubuntu, i can start a syntax that sends out command to my echo show, and it speaks.

The plan is to have a rpi running this script. (or anything else, i'd like some suggestions"

 

Would this be possible with a QA ?

    Ofcourse, i assume you have some linux machine you can run this on:

    There you have the script, you only need to edit it with your credentials. And amzon.DE or .COM

    The cookie part, and MFA (i dont use) is important. Otherwise you will get login errors.

    Also i needed an extra pacakage install. JQ - For filtering the JSON data.

     

    If you have multiple Echo devices, be sure to select the one you want to play with.

     

    Please login or register to see this code.

    This will send the TTS to the selected Echo device

    This will send the TTS to the first in the decive list on amazon.com/de

    Oke, my knowledge is minimal. I hope someone can help me out.

     

    I am testing the setup. I need a LUA code, that can do a SSH login and execute.

    What do i do ? This is what i have.

     

    ssh running on: 192.168.1.21

    script location: //home/peter/Downloads$

    script filename: alexa_remote_control.sh

    string to execute: ./alexa_remote_control.sh -e speak:'Welcome back buddy!'

     

    If all works, i would like to make a variable for entry "Welcome back.....

  • Oke, this seems to be much to complex for me :) My head explodes. I am not 

    the expert i would like to be, so i cant achive at the moment what i would like to do with the HC3.

     

    Anyway i found @SebastianD his topic. And well that worked out a little bit better.

    Please login or register to see this link.

     

    Only thing is that he made it with a vritual device, and i cant use that.

     

    Maybe someone else already got this up and running at the HC3 ?

    Big brain /me worked it out :)

     

    I now have a quickapp, where i can add a variable "what to say". That variable gets inserted in a small php code that opens on a LAMP server and executes the TTS on my echo show.

     

    To be continued....
