How to Use Siri to Control Your Tapo Smart Devices
The Shortcuts app on your iOS device lets you quickly control your Tapo smart devices — all with just a tap or by asking Siri. It’s easy to create a new, custom shortcut using the Shortcuts app for iPhone or iPad.
Before You Start:
- Ensure your Tapo device is set up successfully and the remote control is working.

5. Choose a shortcut you want.
e.g. I want to turn off my bedroom lamp when I go to bed, so here I choose “Turn on/off a device”.
6. Add actions in the shortcut editor by tapping on blue sectors. Tap Next.
e.g. Here I choose “off” as the target state and “Smart Plug” in my bedroom as the target device.
7. Create a name to tell Siri to run this shortcut. Tap Done.
e.g. Here I set “Have a Good Night” as the shortcut name.
