The Rako Cloud gateway allows simple, intuitive voice commands to control of all Rako products. It Communicates with new and existing RA, WA, RTC or WTC-Bridges and provides complete control of your Rako system via IoT enabled devices.
The Rako Skill for Amazon Alexa supports the full home-automation feature set offered by Amazon Echo products. Operate your lights, curtains, blinds and even water features, conveniently with a spoken command.
With Apple HomeKit you can ask Siri to turn off the lights from your iPhone, iPad or Mac. Control remotely with the help of Apple TV and even tell your new HomePod to set the lights in a room. Using the HomeKit automation functions, timed events and automating a Rako system when you leave or arrive home is possible too.
Rako works with the Google Assistant too. With the Google Assistant, dim the lights using only your voice. Simply say “Hey Google” to activate the Google Assistant on your mobile device, Smart Display, or smart speaker.
Set-up of the Cloud Gateway requires the user to register at my.rakocontrols.com with the unique code displayed on the unit's LCD screen.
