Automate Everything In Your Home Using Siri And A Raspberry Pi

We’ve shared quite a few DIY tips for automating your home, but YouTube user Elvis Impersonator takes it a step further, controlling everything in his house with the help of Siri and a Raspberry Pi.

Elvis Impersonator’s tricks all revolve around SiriProxy, a tool we have talked about once before — but he’s got loads of plugins for it:

  • Open the garage door
  • Enable or disable the security alarm
  • Adjust the thermostat
  • View the security cameras around his house
  • Turn off, turn on, or dim the lights
  • Change the channel on the TV, or turn it off

He has put up all the plugins on his GitHub page, linked below, so you don’t need any kind of coding experience to set it up. Check out the video above to see all the home automation hacks in action, or hit the link below to check out the plugins.
