Alexa for Home Automation
My name is Ranesh and my main project is Alexa for Home Automation. For my first few weeks here, I explored the web communication between Alexa and Particle, and the microprocessor used to control the components. I experimented by making Alexa turn on and off the LED lights and get temperature and humidity readings from the DHT22 temperature sensor. For my modification, I made an electricity budget system. This system monitors how much budget an electrical device has expended and if the devices crosses the budget, it is shut off. The users have the option of asking for status from Alexa or receive notifications on their phones. Additionally, the users can view previous budget analytics as graphs and predict the time duration for a given budget amount on an app.
