Siri, Pi, iOS8

Thu Nov 06, 2014 2:25 pm

Hi all,

I had a good deal of home automation working w/ my RasPi and Siri with iOS6. As I'm sure anyone who cares knows, iOS7 broke all of that when it was released.

I've done a *bit* of searching and couldn't find anything, so I thought I'd just ask. Is there a Siri/Pi solution that works with iOS8?

Thanks,

Jonathan

SiriProxy will likely never work with anything but iOS 6. Apple made a number of protocol changes which cannot be overcome using a MITM SiriProxy.

As you may have heard, Apple announced HomeKit Accessory Protocol this year. It is still in beta, but there are two prominent efforts to develop a HomeKit Accessory Protocol (HAP) Bridge, which allows one to implement HomeKit support to legacy devices.

https://github.com/KhaosT/HAP-NodeJS
https://github.com/etwmc/PersonalHomeKit

I do not own either repo, but I successfully got both installed and running on a RPi, which I added How-To instructions to their respective wiki pages. Similar to SiriProxy, there is significant risk Apple may change the protocol and/or require use of proprietary MFi chips, which may thwart everyone's efforts.

Hey, thanks a lot for the info. You were my "go to" source for my first implementation. =)

It was fun while it lasted.. I'll check into the new stuff you mentioned.
