Integrating Alexa with my Harmony Hub

I had a few hours, so as an experiment, I decided to integrate my Harmony Home Hub with Alexa allowing me to control my TV, Netflix etc through the Echo. I have published all the code with directions at https://github.com/jon-c/harmony_echo_control Thanks Jon .

Actually Amazon Echo has added a new function "Trigger" into IFTTT. This allows statements to be created "Alexa, trigger my tv off" where the statement "tv off" is a phrase that Harmony activity is associated to perform all the hardware functions in powering down the TV. Any of the Harmony activities can now be "triggered" using this. Well done!
