      Is there a clean way to allow M1G rules to control Alexa?


      I’ve found a convoluted method.  Here it is…


      1. I make the M1G send an email message to a Gmail account.

      2. That account applies a label to incoming messages that match the M1G’s hard-coded subject line.

      3. I have a script that is to run every minute, which parses the thread matching the above label.

      4. It extracts the body of the message and executes a Voice Monkey call to Alexa via a RESTFUL API call.

      5. That call executes a routine on Alexa, which does whatever I want.


      It’s convoluted, but it seems to work ok.  I’d love to have a more direct integration though.
