Trigger CMD - Run AHK Scripts Using Amazon's Alexa or ...

02 Jan 2019, 10:08

Trigger CMD is a cloud service that allows you to securely and remotely run commands on your computers.
Your commands could install updates, open your garage, run a script, or anything else you decide.
There are many ways to trigger your commands, including IFTTT, Alexa, Google Home, SmartThings, and Zapier.

Its voice command index is listed in a JSON (text) file so you can edit/swap those using AHK :)

Looking at this, you can do much of this with AHK and your e-mail account. Have a computer with AHK check your e-mail, Google Drive, or web server that has a document with command words. The person can send their command words to the document from any remote location, and their computer with AHK would check this document periodically. Then based on the command words in the document, execute various AHK scripts.

Of course the downside is that AutoHotkey is Windows and ReactOS (which is still now ready for prime time yet) only for now.

I 'like' these 'smart' things ( IoT )

( first answer to 5G )
How does 5G make everyday life easier for us?
5G will take the Internet of Things one step further.
Mobile phones that ask the fridge at home if there is enough beer left.

With the Internet of Things, cyber blackmailers could lock out owners from their homes.

My focus was to trigger the script using my voice via an Amazon Echo Dot II. That works great. Haven't had a try to create/modify a document hosted at Google Drive, which I think would need some extra effort. Feel free to prove me wrong ;)

For those who want to create an AHK option without using a third party app the following info might come handy (but is probably outdated?).

Good luck :)
