Shutdown my mac via Amazon Alexa using Mac's folder actions and IFTTT.

This recipe is based on the original "Shutdown my mac via email" concept by ziwax, but utilizes Amazon Alexa to add a file to a specific Dropbox folder. In order to function, you must enable Folder Actions on your mac and monitor the new Dropbox folder for new files. You may then add a custom Apple script via Automator to shutdown your Mac upon any new files appearing in the folder.
