Inspiration - I wanted something to let users control their devices in a more customer friendly way.

What it does - Add's Alexa voice control to the Pura device.

How I built it - with lots of love, pain, and javascript.

Challenges I ran into - we authenticate users with custom tokens. Figuring out the exact request structure from amazon and the structure amazon expects in return was the most annoying challenge. Each request is different.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of - Two live skills!

What I learned - just how vast the IoT and amazon ecosystems are.

What's next for Pura - Have an idea? Want to reach out? We're available 24/7 through
