Enable or Disable pi-hole from Alexa

The easiest way to enable or disable ad-blocking from your pi-hole using Alexa is to install fauxmo – with which you can create fake Belkin devices that are Alexa-enabled.

You then configure fauxmo with URLs like this:

# disable for 600 seconds
# enable
# get status

Get YOUR_AUTH_CODE from the WEBPASSWORD= line in /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf

See example conf at GitHub
