This is going to be a really short how to as I haven't fully done my own design yet.

Siri works with a product called HomeKit, you are able to use generic home kit products such as https://www.npmjs.com/package/homebridge

Then you create a HTTP bridge to send openremote commands to Homebridge https://www.npmjs.com/package/homebridge-http

You then set it up using a Homekit app such as Eve on iOS.

Once it's set up you can say things like turn on Telly, open front door etc.

Exciting times I say, if someone wants to build on this or ask questions I am happy to answer them.

Now just need to do some more digging in the Openremote API.

Embroidery can be classified according to whether the design is stitched on top of or through the foundation fabric http://www.digitemb.com/what-is-embroidery.php

I have put the plugin on GitHub I will make another post explaining how it all works.

Anything that you can do via XML or JSON calls you can do in Homebridge, it is just limited what you can actually see.

So far I have implemented buttons, switches and ranges.

You can control lights, volume, switches or just buttons, it can be extended to control temperature and other things but since I don't have those devices its hard for me to program

Please look here: https://github.com/NovaGL/homebridge-openremote

Let me know if you need any assistance.

Thanks for sharing this. I've seen references to "HomeBridge" before but like a dummy I assumed it was some sort of hardware based bridge for HomeKit. I have been missing out on a lot of fun. I now have all sorts of Siri commands for my house. I love how I can give commands using "Hey Siri" while the phone is plugged in. It's perfect for those nights where you are in bed watching TV and start falling asleep. You simply say "Hey Siri, good night" and everything turns off. No more fumbling for a remote and waking yourself up.

Glad you are enjoying it, did you try my plugin or do your own?

Updated, now does real time polling!

It works great as it can tell me when someone opens the door and if there is motion in the hallway and then trigger something based on that motion.

Hello;

Perhaps it might interest you, I used '(SARAH google) for voice control of my home automation and it works very well.

@Pierre

Hello

Would you be kind enough to start another topic and explain how you've achieved the voice control with "Sarah"?

Many thanks,
Stuart

Works great on the Raspberry PI. Because I first had trouble with the default Rpi image and versions of Node.js etc, I would like to point to a useful SD Image I found: http://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Domoticz_RaspberryPi_SD_Image. It includes a.o.: Domoticz, NodeJS, Node-RED and HomeBridge. Adding the Homebridge-Openremote (-g) was easy. Thanks.
