  • You can use this website of course, but don't stop there. Check out this list of ways to run your commands on your computers.

    Smart Home voice assistant skills (Example: "Hey Google, turn on calculator")

    Original voice assistant skills (Example: "Alexa, ask TRIGGERcmd to run calculator"):

    Android apps:

    IoT Smart Home hubs:

    • Samsung SmartThings - Create virtual switches for each command, then flip the switches to run them.
    • Hubitat - Trigger a command like you'd flip a switch.
    • Node-RED - Run commands using an "http request".
    • Home Assistant - Use a "RESTful command" to run your TRIGGERcmd command.

    Run your commands when things happen in other Internet services:

    • Zapier - create a "Zap" that runs your command when something happens on one of their 1500+ supported apps.
    • IFTTT - If This Then run a command.

    Other cool stuff:

    • Bookmarks - Create and share URL's that run your commands without authentication. You can set an optional timeout to make bookmark URL's expire. People can also scan the bookmark's QR code to run the command.
    • Paywall URL's - Similar to bookmark URL's, you can also charge people via Paypal to run your commands.
    • REST API - Use curl or other client to call the API.
    • tcmd - Command line tool written in Go.
    • Tasker - Tasker is an Android app for automating things with your phone.
    • Slack app - Run your commands with Slack "slash" commands.
    • Powershell - Run a command on a remote computer from your powershell script.
    • Twilio - Run a command with the sender's cell phone number and text message as command parameters.


  • Is there a way to use TRIGGERcmd Smart Home in the UK? It says available for Amazon US only.



  • @kuldiin, man, I'm so glad you asked. I didn't think I could add UK english yet, but I just checked and I can. I'll submit it for approval today, so hopefully it will be available in the UK this week.



  • @russ

    Thank you. Will let you know when it appears :)



  • @kuldiin, I got an email that Amazon approved it for UK (and CA, IN, AU). If you like it, please rate it :).
    I think the Alexa TRIGGERcmd Smart Home skill is one of the best ways to use TRIGGERcmd because it recognizes your words so well, and all you have to say is, "turn on X."
