Introduction to Voice Control and IFTTT

IFTTT is a free service to get things work together. It can make WeBeHome and Copenhagen Blinds work together with Google Home and Alexa so you can voice control your home.

IFTTT stands for IF This Then That. You select the This and That.

For example: IF "you say Movie time to Google Home" THEN "start WeBeHome scenario Movie time"

This is called an Applet. You can define as many Applets as you want.


This tutorial focusses on how to voice control your WeBeHome system. Using all the integrations in IFTTT, you can make a lot more good and fun things you can do.


The IFTTT integration requires that the location has a Basic, Premium or Copenhagen Blinds subscription.

NOTE: Google Assistant tries to identify devices that are added to Google. If you defined a phrase like "Kitchen blind down" Google will try to find a blind that is named Kitchen blind in Googles system. Therefore it is good to start the phrase with Trigger or have a phrase that don't include any device. For example "Trigger Kitchen Blind Down" or "Movie time".

Example of a Scenario Action Set to enable the alarm away mode with a delay


This is possible for those locations that have a subscriptions that includes alarm functions like arm away, arm home and disarm modes.

  1. Add a Scenario Action Set and name it something like "Arm away with delay"
  2. Add an Action "Send command to alarm … " and change the "Minutes after start" to for example 1 minute'

You can then add an Applet in IFTTT which starts this WeBeHome Scenario when you for example say "Hey Google, Arm away"
