Heating voice commands
You can use Amazon Smart Home voice commands to adjust the following for your tado° heating setup:
Turn your tado° devices on or off in one or multiple rooms.
Ask for the current temperature in any room with a tado° heating device.
Adjust the temperature in any room with a tado° heating device.
Adjust the Hot water setting.
Switch between manual control and the smart schedule.
Keep in mind you can phrase these requests in different ways, for instance: ‘Hey Alexa, set living room to heat’, ‘Alexa, heat living room to 25 degrees’, or ‘Alexa increase living room temperature by 3 degrees’. So play around to see what works best for you.
Switch between Manual Control and the Smart Schedule
To switch between Manual Control and the Smart Schedule, a special scene called “Manual Control” has to be used. This scene, including the custom command, is automatically created every time a tado° account is connected to Alexa.
To activate a scene with a voice command, you’ll have to combine the name of the scene with the name of the room in the same command. For example, to deactivate manual control and switch back to the smart schedule you’ll have to say "Alexa, turn off Manual Control Living Room".
Cooling voice commands
You can also use Amazon Alexa commands to adjust the following for your Smart AC Control:
Turn your Smart AC Control on or off.
Select Cool/Heat mode.
Adjust the temperature.
Voice command limits
At the moment it is not possible to adjust the following using Amazon Alexa voice commands:
The Smart Schedule
Automatic manual control activation
If you give Alexa a command that includes tado° devices, the affected tado° devices will automatically switch to Manual Control in the tado° app. This will end depending on the Manual Control duration of the device that you selected in the tado° app, or when the Google Home Scene ends.
Alexa supports English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, and more.
