Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

Odd, it works for me, have you tried from the start? Fresh SD card with fresh updates?

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

Login as root to start with then input all the commands for the install ( but swap commands 11, 12 and 13 to 12, 13, 11) then when you get to the final command, move into the SiriProxy folder and type "siriproxy server". Ignoring the rvmsudo command as you are already logged in as root.

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

I just made a bash script in my root directory to run the bundle or start the server. Then added it to my aliases.

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

I actually set the whole thing up as root so "siriproxy bundle" and "siriproxy server" work in my case without sudo or rvmsudo.

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

It's just a 5v relay, of course it's only a tiny voltage needed from the GPIO that goes through the transistor to power the relay with the full 5v it needs. The NPN transisitor is just a general purpose one - BC548B. It's all I had to hand.

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

I did think if an even cheaper method to activate a relay remotely (I've done this to turn on a remote pc as an FTP server in the past) Get an old Nokia 3210 - or any other old Nokia that let's you make custom ringtones along with its own pay as you go sim (free). Create a ringtone that consists of ...

All credit should go to Pete - https://github.com/plamoni/SiriProxy

He created SiriProxy, I simply modified some of the code for my own use :0)

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

It's possible to setup a VPN that connects your phone to your home network, I'm not sure if the pi can handle that at the same time as running the Siri proxy.

I'm not to sure to be honest, I guess it's possible in ruby/python.. I just knocked this together for the fun of it, didnt think it would be that popular!

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

This would be great for Christmas lights, I'll probably buy another RasPi in the new year and make a multiple relay switch box - the siriproxy pi will talk to this second pi. I forgot to add that I use SiriProxy within a "screen" session so I can SSH into the pi to start the server and it ...

Siri: Open my garage door..

Hi, this is my first real Raspberry Pi project - SiriProxy running on the Raspberry Pi, along with wiringPi to access the Pi's GPIO pins and turn a relay on/off. The relay is then hooked up to my automatic garage door system. So, I have control of the door with Siri on my iPhone. There are probably ...

Re: Drop Attack Project: Need help

I'm going to keep an eye on this thread as I too was thinking of a raspberry pi - minipwner device. I've got a working wireless USB adapter for the pi (thanks to bridging the pi's polyfuses for more power) and also got a 16x2 LCD working with the gpio's, currently it shows me its ip address but I wo...
