Do you own an Alexa? Are you into home automation? Would you like to trigger Alexa Routines via IFTTT, a web browser, or a RESTful API? If you find these questions more intriguing than confusing, read on!
Virtual Buttons combines an Alexa Smart Home skill with a web API, allowing you to trigger Alex Routines based on just about anything -- an incoming email or tweet, a weather alert, a server error, or even an actual button connected to something like a Raspberry Pi or Arduino. It's really up to your imagination.
Warning: This is a truly nerdy tool. If you've never heard of IFTTT or an 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...
