How can I use Siri to voice control my Hombli devices?

If you have an iPhone with iOS 12 or later, you can ask Siri to control any Hombli device for you. This is possible by adding a Shortcut you have created in the Hombli app to “Siri Shortcuts”. This handy feature let you voice control your Hombli devices without needing the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

For example, use voice command: “Hey Siri, turn on the lights” to let Siri run the shortcut “Turn on my Hombli Smart Bulb”.

We use the previous example about the Hombli Smart Bulb to explain how you can add a shortcut to Siri. Of course, many other voice commands for other Hombli devices are possible as well.

  1. Open the Hombli app, go to Scenario and tap “Add to Siri” in the bottom right corner to add a shortcut to Siri.
  2. Select the shortcut you want to control with Siri.
  3. Add a custom phrase that you want to say to Siri to run the shortcut. In our example we set the phrase to “Turn on the Lights” but other phrases are also possible. Other examples: “Turn on my Hombli Smart Bulb” and “Turn on the living room lights” etc.
  4. Tap “Add to Siri” to finish the setup.
  5. Try out your new voice command by saying the phrase to Siri.
