Amazon Echo: Support for Alexa
I would like to see support of Amazon Alexa so that Alexa can trigger any remote control command of the server.

@huha sorry for hijacking your post but this is a great suggestion and exactly what I want/need too. Unless Unified Remote are planning on releasing and Alexa like hardware device an Alexa integration would be a great business case to develop. Alexa would be a compliment to the Unified remote client. Implementing it would not mean that people just downloaded the server and stopped buying the client app.
Adding this functionality would also mean you could release a REST API that could be used by other applications. I really like the way you can easily create custom remotes bur it feels a bit locked in to only be able to use them from the UR client. I think your customer base could increase a lot by opening the server up to other clients. Have a look at what Plex has done with Alexa. You could do something very similar.
