Step 2: Connect 1Home to your voice assistant

Install 1Home skill from your Alexa app, it's as easy as installing an app on your phone.

Step 3: Start using voice control

Create scenarios that complement your daily habits. You decide what you say and what happens when you say it.

I haven't expected that! My extensive KNX installation is significantly simplified and enhanced by 1Home. At first my wife didn't like it, but now she uses voice control even more than me.

Set up was a breeze. After that I was looking for ways to enhance my voice control experience. The support team was very helpful and always replied to me in a couple of minutes.

I was looking for a simple way to integrate voice to my KNX home when I stumbled upon 1Home. Their software immediately recognized all my KNX devices and in the next 5 minutes I could say the commands and Alexa would execute them. Amazing!
