Connecting Tahoma

I recently purchased the Somfy Tahoma but can't get it to comment with my Somfy Sonnesse 40T blinds or my Velux Integra blinds and windows. do i need to purchase anything or attach anything to make it work. The velux is working with the remotes that came with the windows. Thanks

Hi Rupesh,

You do not need any additional equipment to connect to connect to RTS or IO devices.

The configuration of devices must be completed on a web browser, it cannot be done through the app.

To do this head to the options menu by clicking the three horizontal lines at the top right of the TaHoma web page, and then selecting Configuration. This will present the types of devices that can be connected.

In regards to the Velux Integra products, you may need to select the io system section of the configuration screen, and select the option for receiving a security key from your Velux Integra system.

Thanks,

Somfy Team ☺

For anyone who has this issue still. To connect velux windows, you connect the velux remote control to TaHoma. To do this, you add the control as an io configuration but select no control. You then stick a pin into one of the holes in the side of the velux remote that has the settings symbol or the link symbol. I stuck a pin in both, so I’m not sure which one was needed. This generated the key that Tahoma could read. Magically, my velux window appeared in the app. You then set a scenario to open the window, and another scenario to close the window. Theoretically Alexa should then discover these as new scenes, but I can’t get this bit to link.
