We’ve introduced a useful new feature in the latest version of the Vera iOS mobile app: Siri Shortcuts compatibility. This is a simple way to trigger your Vera scenes using custom voice commands.
Siri shortcuts currently works with all Vera controllers, if you are running the latest version of the iOS mobile app.
Shortcuts can be as simple or complex as you like. Several actions can be configured to run in sequence, so you could ask Siri to check the weather forecast, make your coffee using a Vera scene, then send a text message to say you’re on your way out.
To demonstrate the power of shortcuts, we’ll take a look at one basic shortcut — Link one of your existing Vera Scenes from your Vera Mobile app.
