EXCELLENT job on the documentation! I've been watching for a project that enabled dimming a socket. This is on my list to replicate. Thank you!
Excellent instructions! As you point out, none of the components are extremely challenging but there are a lot of components that need to work together.
A couple thoughts to take this further:
Sounds to me like multiple Pi's can subscribe to the same Alexa skill. How can this be done?
Is there a way to create a wireless connection between the Pi and the Arduino so that multiple strips subscribed could run in multiple locations in the house without cables.
Finally, light strips on steroids: Can a Pi subscribe to multiple Alexa skills and if so, can you connect a given skill to a specific Arduino controller? Here I'm thinking of maybe creating an animated Christmas display with multiple strips.
Great work - thanks!
