@jimbethesda Were you able to try out Siri Shortcuts with the gateway endpoint described previously?

Does anyone watching this thread use an Apple Watch? The latest watchOS now has the Shortcuts app!

No. It’s a little above my head. I’m technical, but not a programmer. I did buy a HOOBS (Raspberry Pi device with Homebridge pre-installed). I installed this plugin: homebridge/homebridge, but I can’t get it to work.

I do have an Apple Watch, and noticed that! Very cool.

Yeah the homebrew stuff definitely has a learning curve. You don't need to be a programmer, but there are a lot of steps involved - it's not plug & play like Apple, but it's free.

It might be an idea to install Raspbian Desktop to HOOBS to make life a little easier. If you can also get Docker installed you should be able to get Gateway up and running very easily.

You can also PM me if you'd like further help as learning the difficulties involved helps me improve the documentation and it will help others in the future.

Based on a watchOS Shortcuts article, I created another Siri Shortcut that allows you to choose a circuit from a predefined list to turn it on.

It works in a similar fashion to post #58, but instead of getting an object value it sets it. Siri Shortcuts does allow for a lot of possibilities.

Please note that the value for the Authorization header should be "Basic" followed by a space and then the Base64 Encoded variable.

Heater state works a little differently, I don't think status reflects heating operation. @rmontgomery Do you know anything about heater statuses and also which params to work with?

Another thing you can try is to log in to the IntelliCenter website and inspect messages shown in the debugging console. Turn the heater on/off and watch for SETPARAMLIST commands with an objnam of H0001.
