Siri Home Automation Integration from Start to Finish
Author - Mark Anderson
I've been wanting to get Siri up and running with my Home Automation system for quite a while. I tried and failed last year, but recently attacked the problem again; this time with great success. Not only did I get it running on 4 versions of Linux (long story), but also on my Raspberry PI.
Further, I now have it integrated with my Home Automation system. (The approach I chose for this should work with virtually any Home Automation system.)
The instructions in this article will get you up and running--virtually guaranteed--in under 30 mins. If you don't want to start from scratch, you can download a 250MB VMware appliance with it fully installed. All that's required are a few minor config changes for your own IP address.

In Part 2, we'll cover Raspberry PI installation.
In Part 3, we'll cover Home Automation integration.Read the complete article in AVSystemsMag, the new eMagazine at HomeToys.com
