|This is a ‘how to’ tutorial guide on how to control your TV, Set top box, AV reciever and pretty much any Infrared device using Alexa and any old phone with an Infrared sender. This is a cheap alternative to buying a Harmony hub.
In this tutorial I’ve repurposed my Samsung Galaxy S5 to blast Infrared by simply enabling the Anymote skill on Alexa and installing Anymote on my upcycled phone. This tutorial will work with any phone with an Infrared eye
Before any Harmony Hub owners bash me in the comments, I fully appreciate the Harmony hub is a more slick solution, but this solution could save you £50 if you have a phone sat in a drawer! If you already own a Harmony hub, then this could be a cheap way to add the functionality to another room! 🙂
