Amazon Alexa: Control your smart SILENO conveniently via voice 

“Alexa, tell smart system to send Robi home until the next schedule.” With the GARDENA smart system Skill for Amazon’s Alexa, you can control your smart SILENO conveniently via voice control. For now, you can start and park your mower using English or German. All you need to do is to say “Alexa, tell smart system to start my SILENO for 2 hours”. Or “Alexa, open smart system and park the mower until further notice.” We are working on making other devices and functions available to you by Alexa in the future.

How to get started?

To be able to use the skill, please first connect your GARDENA account to your Alexa. Activate the skill and open it with: "Alexa, open smart system". The skill will explain to you how to continue.

GARDENA smart system works with Apple Home

GARDENA smart Water Control, smart Irrigation Control, smart Sensor and smart Power work with Apple Home. Simply add your GARDENA products to the Apple Home app and have Siri® control your devices. GARDENA has leveraged Apple’s software authentication for Home to enable compatibility without the use of other new hardware.
The initial setup of watering schedules is managed through the GARDENA app, which advises users on the optimum settings. Once that is set up, irrigation systems can then be easily controlled by voice using Siri or with the touch of a button on the Apple Home app on iPhone, iPad, Mac and HomePod.

Networked all around – lawn care and irrigation easily controlled via Google Home

From all GARDENA robotic mowers to the smart Water Control, smart Irrigation Control and smart Sensor to the smart Power Adapter, GARDENA devices can also be controlled with Google Home. Once configured within the GARDENA smart App, your products can be controlled by voice with Google Assistant, or via the Google Home app with just a few clicks, as well as switched on and off.
The one-time setup of the watering or mowing schedules is first done via the GARDENA app, which advises the user on the best settings. Once this is done, the irrigation and mowing then literally listen to the word or follow the click in the GARDENA or Google Home app.
