ALEXA is the cloud‐based voice service that powers Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. ALEXA is always getting smarter—just ask and ALEXA answers questions, plays music, reads audiobooks, turns on and off the lights, gives you sports scores, checks the traffic, and more.

Now, with the new TaHoma skill for ALEXA, you can also control your TaHoma Smart Home as well.

Just by asking ALEXA, you can launch and control one of your pre‐programmed TaHoma Smart Home scenarios — allowing you to control blinds, shutters, curtains, lights or heating using just your voice. Just ask, and Alexa will take care of it for you.

Compatibility between TaHoma and Amazon ALEXA from Autumn 2017, depending on ALEXA availability in your country.

 

If this happens then launch a TaHoma scenario…

IFTTT empowers people to do more with the services they love. The acronym stands for If This, Then do That.

Working with over 510 apps, services, and devices including Facebook, Twitter, Philips Hue, Dropbox, Google, Nest, Fitbit, BMW, and Slack, with Applets. Applets bring these services together to create new experiences of all types, from automating simple tasks to transforming how someone interacts with and controls their home.

You, (the end user or manufacturer) can experiment with all IFTTT partners and create your own Applets. (Applet = smart automatism created between your devices under the condition “If This happens Then do That”).

 

With IFTTT and TaHoma, you can look for existing applets proposed by SOMFY or other TaHoma users who decided to publish them or create your own applets.

Any compatible service with IFFFT can then interact with TaHoma and launch pre‐ programmed TaHoma scenario. More than 400 apps work today with IFTTT: home appliances, AC systems, connected cars, gardening equipment, health devices and personal trackers, security solutions, voice assistant, weather information … and much more. The only limit will be your imagination.

All our insulated roller doors from AlluGuard have the Somfy Control Box fitted as standard, and can be easily connected to the TaHoma hub & Alexa.
