Android based node / VM / other for IFTTT, Tasker


Active Member
Hi all,

Currently running combination of Echo, Echo Dot, Hue, TP-Link smart plugs etc. Want to incorporate RM Pro for RF and IR as I have conservatory ceiling fan etc I want to add. iOS devices in house as phone / tablet. Need an always on home device to run tasker (specifically rm tasker plugin to communicate with Alexa) and IFTTT. Could us a cheap Android phone tablet but looking for something more robust. Ideal world would be a virtual machine running on my server or hard wired (power and Ethernet) type device running Android capable of downloading needed apps. I have a spare pi. What are my options? Don't want a cheap simless phone responsible for parts of the house.

Q's. Can I run Android as a VM caperble of accessing play store?
If yes, Is there an image / ISO I can download?
Is there the same for raspberry pi 2?

Thanks all.
