Home Arduino Logistics: Send custom commands to your Arduino via your Echo

Were you a bit disappointed with the home automation abilities of the Echo and wanted to add your own? Using my skill (Home Arduino Logistics, AKA HAL) now you can. My code creates the bridge between your Echo and your Arduino, using this you can now have your echo do almost any home automation task that you can design. To get more info (including the code and setup instructions) check out my website: http://www.willstr1.com/p/home-arduino-logistics.html Note: currently there are some limitations mostly due to the protocols I am having to use, you can currently only send simple commands and the commands have to be set in the lambda code (they have to be converted into numbers) and the communication is only one way (since the echo can not be triggered from skills).

Since now we can control Lego devices via Bluetooth. Is it possible to use Bluetooth to connect arduino and send command to the device.?
