Using Siri to control your Alexa Smart Home devices

I have many Smart Home devices that can be controlled from my Amazon Echo, however none of those devices can be controlled from Siri on my Apple Watch or iPhone. None are HomeKit compatible.

What I’ve done lets me control my Alexa Smart Home devices via Siri on my Apple Watch or iPhone. This solution is not elegant (it involves a Raspberry PI, HomeBridge and a speaker) but it does work…

    set up webhook in ifttt so loading url

    https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/event1/with/key/123yourkeyxyz

    triggers an activation of ifttt service that switches device

    Then in homebridge with the ultra simple cmdSwitch plugin have a config.json like this:

    {
    “accessory”: “cmdSwitch”,
    “name” : “Tablamp”,
    “on_cmd”: “wget https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/event1/with/key/123yourkeyxyz“,
    “off_cmd”: “wget https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/event2/with/key/123yourkeyxyz
    },

    Much improvement possible.. get it so that status can be checked etc. but this works well enough for controlling off the shelf sonoff basics using siri for example
