Hobbyists and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts interested in creating DIY HomeKit enabled projects and devices may be interested in a new tutorial published to the awesome Hackster.io website this week to show you how to make your very own smart home devices which can be controlled and monitored using Apple’s Siri personal assistant or Apple’s Home application.
After completing the tutorial you should be able to monitor any kind of sensors and control any kind of devices, which are listed by Apple. Siri supports multiple languages and only needs to changed via a language setting on Siri without do need to apply any code to your project.
The tutorials use a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B equipped with a PHPoC Blue which offers a wireless LAN programmable board embedded with a PHPoC interpreter and offers support for various interfaces to connect with sensors. The PHPoC Blue plugin completes two main tasks, periodically making HTTP request to PHPoC board to get states of sensors/devices and updating these states to Home App and on-demand making HTTP request to PHPoC board to control, monitor sensors, devices when there is request from Siri or Home app.
