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 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 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 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...
