MQTT, Can the Echo or similar device be a MQTT broker
My customer will own an Echo or similar Amazon device. The Alexa device is on the same local network as my device. They are not affected by Routers/Firewalls being on the same network (if they can talk to each other).
So... if the Alexa device can receive and transmit MQTT messages (Broker)
then when the customer “utters” the trigger word Alexa sends an “intent” to the amazon skill.
But I also want Alexa to send a MQTT message to wake up my device, (which all takes place on the local network on customers premises).
Then my device can poll my server (http request) until the wake up call is resolved. and go back to sleep mode and await the next wake up message.
