Use Alexa to change exact color of Hue lights. (Step 1 of 2)

Like my other recipes, this one takes two steps to work properly. Since Hue can recognize color names, you will use your phone as an SMS buffer to filter the color name and it works! Note: there is a delay due to IFTTT polling, although it's very rarely longer than 5 mins. Even so, this is currently the best option for using Alexa to change Hue color through IFTTT. Make sure you include your phone number in the SMS field below. Use the 'AddedItem' ingredient as well. Once done with this step, proceed to Step 2: https://ifttt.com/recipes/338628-use-alexa-to-change-exact-color-of-hue-lights-step-2-of-2
