Voice command preferred service for Alexa?

I would like to control my lights with voice. I used to use the hue emulator when using OH2.1 and now i am in OH2.4 and wondering what to do. I do use the alexa binding for TTS, and alarms.

So we can control lights with hue emulator , the alexa skill,iftt or the alexa binding

So whats the difference between the 4 methods, pros cons?

  1. Hue emulator
  2. Alexa Skill
  3. IFTTT
  4. Alexa binding

The real question you should ask yourself is: “How can I make my lights smart so I don’t have to do anything?”

So if you already have and use Amazon Alexa, why you don’t use her for voice control?
