******************************************************************/

#include <IoT.h>

IoT *iot;

void setup() {
  iot = IoT::getInstance();
  iot->begin();

  // Create devices
  //Note: D7 is not a PWM pin, so it can only turn on or off
  //      The last 4th argument specifies this.
  //      The 3rd argument can be used to invert on/off.
  // Alexa will respond to "Alexa, turn L E D on" or "Alexa, turn off L E D"
  // You can change the name 'LED' to whatever you like, but it needs to be something
  // that Alexa can recognize.
  Light *light1 = new Light(D7, "LED", false, true);

  // Tell IoT about the devices you defined above
  iot->addDevice(light1);

  // The "behavior" defines additional commands that control things.
  // Note that the name of each device can be used to control it, so behaviors are
  //      not required unless you want to control more than one device with a commands.
  // Alexa will respond to "Alexa, turn photon on" or "Alexa, turn off photon"
  // You can change the word 'photon' to whatever you like, but it needs to be something
  // that Alexa can recognize. For now, use a single word.
  iot->addBehavior(new Behavior(light1, "photon", '>', 0, 100)); // On
  iot->addBehavior(new Behavior(light1, "photon", '=', 0, 0));   // Off
}
