DIY Smart Lamp with ESP8266 & Amazon Echo

I upgraded a cool vintage lamp to work with voice commands through my Amazon Echo using an ESP8266 microcontroller and relay circuit. The fauxmoESP Arduino library is what does the heavy lifting in this project; it emulates a Belkin WeMo device, so the Alexa app setup is exactly the same as the store-bought device. I hollowed out the wooden base of the lamp to enclose the electronics, and installed a power override switch that controls the light independently of the voice commands. The full tutorial is on Instructables, and I talk through the code in the video.

Matt said he wished there were more projects on the blog. Well I published a project! It’s a Wifi weather display for the coat hook area of my entryway that helps me pick outerwear and shoes. I used an Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 wifi board, seven segment display, and some NeoPixels built into a shadowbox frame. Full tutorial with code, circuit diagram, and plenty of step by step photos is on Instructables.
