Connect sensors to smart home device?

<***>

Is it possible to have, for example, a temperature sensor connected to a smart home device (like Google Home or Amazon Echo) so that if the temperature reaches a certain point then the smart home device can take action? I want to be able to have control over things like temperature thresholds and the action taken, so most of the store-bought options I saw don’t look like what I’m looking for. Is the Alexa Skills Kit what I’m looking for? What kind of sensor should I buy or how could I build one that’s able to connect with a smart home device?
