Guide for using Siri to control Holman Home devices

A. Setup your Holman Home device to be used with Siri
  1. Getting Started
  2. Before using Siri to control your devices, check you have the following:
    • an iOS device (iPhone, iPad etc) that has iOS version 12.0 or above
    • a Holman Home smart device. For example: WX8 irrigation controller, RGB or WW Garden Light, Wi-Fi Socket or WX1 Tap Timer

  3. Setup and add your Holman Home smart device to your Holman Home app

  4. Create all the Smart Tap-to-Run scenarios you require
  5. Note: Siri can not be used with Smart Automation scenarios

  6. From the Smart screen with Tap-to-Run chosen, choose Add to Siri (at the bottom right hand corner of the screen)
