Things to try with Siri

  • Hey Siri, set the temperature to 72 degrees. (in heat-only or cool-only mode)
  • Hey Siri, set the temperature range to between 65 and 70 degrees. (in auto mode, for systems that can heat and cool)
  • Hey Siri, set the thermostat to cool. (try heat, cool, auto, or off)
  • Hey Siri, turn on the air conditioning.
  • Hey Siri, what's the temperature at home?
  • Hey Siri, what's the temperature in the Basement? (get the temperature from a Nest Temperature Sensor)

Please let me know if you find this useful or come up with any novel implementations.

Enjoy!
