How does tado° work with Amazon Echo / Alexa?

You can use your Amazon Echo to control your tado° devices. Simply enable the tado° skill and connect your tado° device as a smart home product in the Alexa portal (https://alexa.amazon.com).

Once tado° is connected to your Amazon Echo device you can adjust temperatures with Alexa, for example: “Alexa, set the temperature in the Living Room to 22 degrees” or “Alexa, decrease the temperature in the Bedroom by 2 degrees”.

Your tado° will receive the command as a Manual Control input which overwrites the automatic operation of the Smart Schedule for the default duration, defined in the tado° settings.

We are looking forward to the future development of the Amazon Alexa API and will implement more functions as they become available in the Alexa API.
