Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I’ve been too busy to work on any real home automation projects, but I found some time (and inspiration) over the weekend to work on an idea of mine.
Without further ado, here’s a video of my Amazon Echo controlling my Plex. Plex is running on a Roku 3.
Like I mentioned in the video, the code isn’t quite ready for public release yet. I’m not catching as many errors as I should be, it’s too slow, things that should be variables or constants are hard-coded, etc. For those of you interested, the skill is written in Python using Flask. The interaction with the Plex API is done using the excellent python-plexapi package.
If you’re interested in the source or have any questions or comments, let me know! The comments section is below. I try to get to every comment as soon as possible.
