Siri is an incredibly powerful personal assistant that can help you with just about anything. With Siri, you can make calls, send messages, set reminders, play music and so much more. But one thng that Siri can’t do on its own is control your smart home. That’s where WiZ lights come in.

WiZ lights are compatible with Apple HomeKit and Siri Shortcuts, making it easy to connect your WiZ lighting system to your home automation network and control it using voice commands. With Siri, you can turn lights on and off, dim them up or down, change colors and more with simple voice commands.

Setting up WiZ lights with Siri is easy and doesn’t require any extra hardware or software purchase. All you need is a WiZ hub and the WiZ app installed on your iOS device. Once the app is installed, simply follow the instructions in the app to connect your WiZ hub to your home network. Once connected, you will be able to control your WiZ lights using voice commands via Siri.

To get started with controlling your WiZ lights uing Siri, open the Home app on your iOS device and select “Add Accessory” from the menu at the bottom of the screen. Select “WiZ Lighting System” from the list of accessories and enter the 8-digit code found on the back of your WiZ hub into the text box provided by Home App. Once that step has been completed successfully, go back to Home App’s main page where all of your connected devices will be displayed in a list format for you to choose from when issuing commands via Siri.

Now that everything is setup properly, it’s time to explore what voice commands are available for controlling your WiZ lighting system via Siri! You can ask Siri to turn specific lights or groups of lights on or off as well as dim them up or down if they are equipped with dimming functionality (not all models support this feature). You can also ask her to change colors if they are equipped with color changing bulbs (again not all models support this feature). Some additional features include setting schedules for when certain lights shold turn on or off as well as setting alarms for when certain tasks should be completed such as turning off all lights in a room after a specific amount of time has elapsed (great for saving energy!).

We hope this tutorial has helped you understand how easy it is to connect WiZ light systems with Apple HomeKit and use voice commands via Apple’s personal assistant – SIRI – to control them! No more fumbling around trying to find switches in dark rooms – just tell SIRI what needs doing and it’ll take care of it right away!
