Add Alexa To Your Awning

Once setup you can use the Alexa voice assistant to trigger your custom scenarios. These scenarios can be created via the Tahoma app directly from your smartphone, tablet and computer. Ask Alexa to close your awning, turn off the lights and switch the thermostat to eco mode using just your voice!

“Alexa, turn on leave home”

To start your scenario use the wake word “Alexa”and the trigger word “turn on” followed by your scenario name. This interaction between Alexa and your awning can then provide protection when you need it most, whether it’s protecting furniture when the sun’s at it’s highest, or saving energy when you’re not at home.

Compatible With Major Brands 

Tahoma’s compatibility means it works with a number of major brands and can work alongside key home devices. Use the Tahoma app to create up to 40 intelligent scenarios and start programming your awning to open and close automatically at the touch of a button.
