Electronic Project: Voice Controlled Lab Lights with Amazon Alexa and ESP8266

Eltronicschool. - This is one home IoT project in this time for you who want to control your lab light using voice with Amazon Alexa and ESP8266. So, in this project you should provide the Amazon Echo device to build this project.

Accordingly Electroschematics describe that the Echo allows you to use voice commands to do things like order from Amazon, play music, set timers, and get the weather forecast.  By adding additional “skills”, it also allows you to integrate with smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

In this project you can integrated it with the Hue lights and my SmartThings hub by installing the relevant skills for those devices and was able to control everything with voice commands to Alexa.  But being a maker, you were not satisfied with just buying premade devices.  You wanted to be able to create my own smart IoT gadgets that you could use with the Echo.

You had recently installed an Adafruit analog LED light strip for task lighting in my home lab but you needed a better way to control it.  Adding voice control to it would be a great solution.

Around 8 feet long, the lighting strip contains 18 sets of 4 LEDs per foot, in red, green, blue, and white colors, and runs on 12 volt DC power. The LEDs are arranged in repeating sets of 3, each with current-limiting resistors.
