Arduino based Amazon Echo using 1Sheeld #ArduinoMonday

Thanks to Ahmed for sharing his DIY Echo project with us! Check out more here.

A few months ago I visited a friend of mine and I was amazed with the Amazon Echo he owned.

It can play music, control the house lights, tell me news and weather status, and even the date and time, all of that with just voice commands.

At that moment, the maker inside me shouted “why don’t I make it myself!”.

And since that day I started to search for components that could help me to make an arduino based Amazon Echo, until I found the amazing 1Sheeld.

1Sheeld is a platform for Arduino that allows you to tap into your smartphone’s sensors and capabilities and let you use them in your Arduino projects.

Basically, it is a hardware shield that sits on top of your Arduino board and communicates over Bluetooth to this Android app, to transfer data between it and your smartphone.

You can check the getting started tutorial on 1Sheeld website which will take you step by step till you can operate the 1Sheeld very smoothly and it’s an awesome reference for great Arduino projects.

I have used in this project five shields from the 40+ shields in the 1Sheeld.

50-06Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
