Amazon Echo and Alexa are now even better combined with the iHaus App. Due to the iHaus App networking with KNX devices from building technology, the Amazon speaker can create and trigger various scenes in your smart home. Trigger a previously defined scene
automatically via voice command to Alexa. Amazon Echo and Dot can access your smart home devices such as heaters, light bulbs, smoke detectors and appliances, regardless of the brand, via the iHaus App.
Alexa Skills are needed to control many smart home products such as lamps, heaters, weather systems, alarms, smoke detectors or surveillance cameras. KNX devices are used especially in building technology - for example blinds or shutters, sockets, keyless systems, air conditioning and heating controls. All these devices can be combined and configured in the iHaus App to time sequence related scenes. In this case Alexa can start these scenes also via voice command.
Name SUM-ITUPs as easy as possible so Alexa has no trouble understanding them. We recommend for example: "LIGHT ON" or "SONOS OFF". If you want to turn off your lights, call the SUM-ITUP "LIGHT OFF". With the command "Alexa, START SCENE LIGHT OFF" the defined lamps switch off. We show you how to do so in this VIDEO: Alexa & IKEA Tradfri Tutorial.
„Alexa, start scene LEAVING HOME!”
Trigger this SUM-ITUP via voice command: the lights, the music and the shutters close automatically, before you leave the house.
„Alexa, start scene WAKE UP GROUND FLOOR!”
In the morning you may want to stay in bed, but Alexa is the pick-me-up you need. On your voice command she takes care of you in the morning. She raises the blinds for example and plays your good-mood music, when Alexa turns on the SUM-IT-UP "WAKE UP GROUND FLOOR".
You can now control SUM-ITUP, your smart home scenes, via voice command with Amazon Alexa and iHaus. We will show you here how to connect Amazon Alexa with iHaus. The iHaus App works with the following Amazon devices - Fire TV, Fire TV Stick and Fire Tablet. Start with the iHaus skill in the Alexa app.

With Echo you activate the application with the code word “Alexa” or with the push button directly on the device. When asked questions, she accesses information online and via apps.

The corresponding Alexa app allows you to activate and deactivate your skills and allows you to view and delete voice recordings.
Amazon calls Alexa’s abilities and application possibilities "skills”. They vary on a scale of info skills and smart home skills. With info skills you get information such as train schedules, weather reports, recipes or taxi services.

A large selection of these skills is organized in categories in the Amazon Shop including the iHaus skill - and the range is expanding.
