SIRI Shortcuts app

Carl Thomas Myklebust shared this thanks 14 months ago

Hi there. I read you are having problem with licensing the Apple Home Kit. And we have been waiting a very long time for that.

Apple has know announced that they will be coming with a possibilty to learn Siri to use third part apps : https://www.imore.com/siri-apps-faq

It seems that with this app, also Zipato users might use the voice control of SIRI to handle our smarthomes. Then again it says that the app has to support the new app (Zipato needs to support Siri Shortcuts app) So the question is, will Zipato fulfill this wish from all of us apple users?

Hi

I tried successfully the new Shortcut App to control a switch via Siri command.


1. You have to create a virtual http switch device.

2. Customize a workflow to call the http request

3. Record your command to enable SIRI control

Hi Michel.

Thanks for posting.


I just tried it, and faced a problem.

In the Shortcut app, it seems likely to use the URL choice, but doing that does not work for me. Then again, If I place my URL in the RSS stream choice in the app, it works, but then Siri tells me there is a problem with the app (probably since it is not a RSS stream link).

How did you solve this?

Hi

Please have a look to the attached image.

I sent the URL to Safari


Best regards

Yes, that worked ! Thanks so much Michel. Nice to control things with Siri again, but I wish she could give a better reply on the command :-) Like when I say "Good Night Siri", and she turns off all the lights and heaters in to night mode, she should just reply "good night", not "using the shortcut", but things are new, and maybe we also can edit her respond in the future.. Again, thanks and have a great day!

Hola Michel


¿Podrías mostrarme la regla en zipato para hacerlo?

At the end of the URL, you must place a value such as 1 or 0?

Lo intenté pero todavía no funciona.

Gracias

Hey Michel,


your language on your pictures are in german? Do you speak German? Can you explain how you get the URL of the Virtual Switch?

I found exactly what you are looking for.

Please have a look to the attached images


Instead of the Safari component use Get URL content and the following components

So happy for your help. I got her to say the text, and it works perfectly if you push the button, but not if you are using "Hey Siri". The last thing here. I dont seem to find the "Inhalte von URL anbrufen" Where did you find that?

I used the search function using the search term „http“


Maybe the translation is something like „get content of URL“

Great. Found it. Though it worked fine with the Alta Vista also.


But still, when using Siri she still says "using the shortcut" (as you said, it works fine when pushing the button), but not with "HEY SIRI" Did you solve that?

You have to record your preferred Siri phrase in the settings of your Shortcut


1. Goto the Shortcut overview

2. Select the three dots in the upper right corner of the Shortcut

3. Press the marked button in screenshot 1

4. Record the Siri phrase (screenshot 2)

I think I've done it right, sincel pushing the button works the way I want it (executing perfectly) but if you are not opening the shortcut app, and just using the "hey Siri" modus, she starts with"using shortcut", and then she says "shortcut says" and then she read my text. So it is only in Hey Siri I have the problem. Is there something I dont get here?

Hi again. AS i wrote, they are exectuted with Siri, but she allways starts with "using the shortcuts" (in Norwegian) When she reads the text, she says "Shortcut says" and then reads the text.

So your Siri just says the text when activating Michel?

Hello

since yesterday stopped working siri with the application of shortcuts on my iphone 7.


I execute the actions manually from the application of shortcuts and it works but when I say "hey siri, turn on ligths" it tells me that I do not have anything configured in the home kit and it does not execute the shortcut.


Does anyone else have this problem?

Yes, got the same problem. Have no idea why. The shortcuts are still registered and connected to Siri and the shortcuts, but does not work with the hey Siri commands. There could probably been an update gone wrong, but I cant see any update in the log. Anyone else who knows?

hi

there is an update of ios and the application shortcuts update them and it did not work. Create the shortcuts again and they are already working.

you have to say the exact word, then it works.

However Siri says also "Kurzbefehl wird ausgeführt" / Shortcut will be executed. Is there a way to delete that?
