Demonstration



“Why uses PHPoC for this project?”. The answer is PHPoC is an IoT hardware platform which has a web server and a variant of PHP interpreter. From PHP script, We can control others device or read value from sensor an send back to client via HTTP response.



How It Works

Google Home -> Google Assistant -> IFTTT Applet->PHPoC
  • You say a phrase “turn on/off the light” to Google Home.
  • Google Home send it Google Assistant.
  • Google Assistant trigger an event to IFTTT Applet
  • FTTT Applet take action of making HTTP request to PHPoC
  • PHPoC performs a work according to that phrase (e.g. turn on/off the light)

What We Need to Do
  • Configure Google Home (e.g. Wi-Fi information, Google Account)
  • Create an IFTTT Applet
  • Writing source code on PHPoC to handle HTTP request from IFTTT applet

Configure Google Home

Create IFTTT Applet

An IFTTT applet include two components. “trigger and action”. IFTTT stand for “if this then that”, where “this” is trigger, “that” is action.
In this project, trigger is “turn on/off the light” which is created using “Google Assistant” service on IFTTT, and action is “Make a web request” which is created using “Maker Webhooks” service.
So, when the applet is created, “if this then that” becomes “if you say ‘turn on/off the light’ then make a web request”.
Now let’s see how to create it.

1. Create an Applet

Go to https://ifttt.com/ and log in.

where $ symbol represent for ingredient. Ingredient is something like argument passed from trigger to action.
For example, if you say “turn on the light”, the text “on” is ingredient and is passed to action.
Click “Create trigger” button. After creating the trigger, the following screen will be shown. Click “that” button to create the action.

Now upload source code to PHPoC and test it with Google Home

PHPoC Source Code

This code handles HTTP request from IFTTT applet and turns on/off the light

PHP Code:
<?php
    
include_once "/lib/sd_spc.php";

    
$text_ingredient  _GET("state");
    
$is_on strpos($text_ingredient"on");
    
$is_off strpos($text_ingredient"off");

    if(
$is_on !== false || $is_off !== false)
    {
        
spc_reset();
        
spc_sync_baud(115200);
        if(
$is_on !== false)
                
spc_request(144"set 0 output high");
            else
                
spc_request(144"set 0 output low");
    }
?>
