Alexa-ing the Worcester Wave

This page still gets a few hits per day, so I've broken out the steps and example code into a bitbucket repo. If that's all you're after then head over there now --> https://bitbucket.org/iainxyz/wave-via-ifttt/

Our new boiler came with one of those WiFi thermostats that everyone has these days. Unfortunately, not a Nest, as that would have knocked a couple of years off the guarantee. So I went with the sensible OEM option and ended up with a Worcester Bosch Wave.
While it does come with a half decent smartphone app, it doesn't appear to be compatible with Google Assistant, Alexa, IFTTT or any other third party do-things-with-stuff type services. Which is a shame - mainly because I just bought an Echo Dot on #primeDay!

Or so I thought...
