About Virtual Buttons

- NOTE -
You do not have to join a membership level to use Virtual Buttons.

Do you own an Alexa? Are you into home automation? Would you like to trigger Alexa Routines via IFTTTZapier, an ESP8266, or REST API? If you find these questions more intriguing than confusing, read on!

Virtual Buttons combines an Alexa Smart Home skill with a REST API, allowing you to trigger Alex Routines based on just about anything -- an incoming tweet, a weather alert, a server error, or even an actual button wired to something like an RPi. It's all up to your imagination.

Warning: This is a truly nerdy tool. If you've never heard of IFTTT or a REST API, or are uncomfortable creating Alexa Routines, Virtual Buttons is likely not for you. Still not scared? Great! Then please continue on to the Getting Started post...
