Detailed overview

1. Connect your TDS system to the TTcloud


Your TDS installation needs to be connected to the TTcloud cloud service. This connection is free of charge and needs to be done by the system integrator (see TTcloud movie for professionals in the professional part of our website www.teletask.be).


2. Configure in PROSOFT/VOICESOFT all voice commands and transmit to your central unit.

  • Now you can do the configuration of voice control in PROSOFT 3.7.3.16 (or higher). You’re your .nbt (local or remote) and select “VOICESOFT”.
  • Select the different functions in the rooms and give them a unique, to be recognised, text. This text will then be used to control the device(s) or mood under control.
  • After clicking all desired actions and giving them a unique name, save and transmit this new. nbt file to your central unit (in the PROSOFT menu ' communication ' – ' Transmit '). The concerned TELETASK central unit will automatically upload all text items to TTcloud where they can be connected with the Amazon Alexa servers.
RECOMMENDATION: if you have no voice control experience yet, start with a few main lights in a few rooms and test this first. Later you can always add/delete voice commands any time you like.


3. Buy the VOICE CONTOL subscription on TTecomm


Now you (the System Integrator) can buy (and automatically activate for your specific installation) the VOICE CONTROL subscription (a yearly fee applies) on the TTecomm platform (you can start from www.teletask.be and select TTecomm).


4. Install the Google Home app on your mobile device (e.g. smart phone) and add your Google Home device and test


The next step is installing the Google Home app on your smart phone (from Android store or Apple App store). Connect your Google home device in the app and test it. The device should for example give you an answer when you ask “OK/Hey Google, what is the current time?”. If not, don’t proceed with the TELETASK setup before this issue is solved.



Open the Google Home app on your mobile device.

  • Find the ‘+’ for adding devices, it can be in the middle or in the top left corner

VoiceControl Google (1)

  • In the next screen you again find a ‘+’ ‘Set up device’

VoiceControl Google (2)

  • Next screen gives you two possibilities, select “Works with Google”

VoiceControl Google (3)

  • In the next screen, search for the TELETASK service

VoiceControl Google (4)

  • Next you will have to enter your credentials of the TTcloud

VoiceControl Google (5)

Now you will have your TELETASK items (e.g. ‘Main light living room’) in the main screen of your Google Home App, and you can control them with your voice.

Tip: After making VOICESOFT changes in PROSOFT (and downloading your .nbt to your central unit) you can update the Google Home settings by simply saying “Hé Google, sync my devices”.
