Water heater control via alexa (Let alexa see water heaters as thermostat)

Water heater control via alexa (Let alexa see water heaters as thermostat)

I would think that this should be fairly easy to enable this functionality.
It seems that the same commands that you use to change HVAC thermostat controls could also work with a water heater (which is technically controling a thermostat also).
Couldn't you just set it up so that alexa sees an energy smart water heater controller AS a thermostat?
This would be unique functionality to iris. I don't think there are any other products on the market that let you set your water heater temperature via alexa or google home...

The problem with that is all of the plugs that I've seen are 110 volt Max, water heaters are 220 volts, therefore how do you link the water heater to Alexa safely and to code?

 Does anyonme, know how to hook up a normal hot water heater, to an Alexa??     We only use the hot water heater when needed.    It would be easier to have Alexa turn it on,   off   or for just an hour.

  any help??
