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 1, we'll cover the basics (using a Linux VM).

In Part 2, we'll cover Raspberry PI installation.

In Part 3, we'll cover Home Automation integration.

This is a FANTASTIC article and is well written. I would probably never have gotten Siriproxy running without this article from Mark.

I set up a Raspberry Pi using the image Mark provided, followed the steps, tweaked a few things, and now I'm sending strings to my Crestron system. biggrin.gif
