Tech Reads: Siri Gets Smarter at Home
At the beginning of the year, I decided to only buy Apple HomeKit-compatible smart home products going forward, if for no other reason than simplicity. In doing so, I soon realized that I was really slacking when it came to using Siri to control my devices.
After a lot of work, I still don’t consider myself a Siri expert, although I’m getting closer to that goal. So much so, that I published “How to Use Siri With Your Smart Home Devices” over at MakeUseOf.com. Think of it as a modest cheatsheet for Siri commands.
Quote: “Siri commands are a useful tool to use with Apple HomeKit-enabled products. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to figure out which commands work with each product. You can find controls for many of these products through resources offered directly by the product’s website or apps. Other products may require more research through a Google search or a visit to YouTube.”

It’s been a relatively quiet month. A growing chorus of “iPhone 8” rumors, of course, but we’re still too far out for any of these leaks to be taken all that seriously. Little remains unknown about WWDC too, which is still a few weeks off (June 5th keynote). Hopefully, things will pick up soon.
