Project Description

This project leverages a PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Prototyping Kit with Amazon Alexa. An Amazon Echo is used in this project to control the speed of a fan by building a custom skill using the Alexa Skills Kit. The developed custom skill is hosted on the AWS Lambda service. A Lambda function is triggered from Alexa Skills and the function is coded to publish messages to a topic in AWS IoT based on the input from the developed custom Alexa skill. The physical device (PSoC 62 MCU + CYW4343W Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Radio on kit) subscribes to this topic in AWS IoT and generates appropriate PWM signals to control the speed of the fan.
