Siri Shortcuts

Siri Shortcuts

The Siri Shortcuts integration is available in the Neo Smart Blinds app version 4.0.6 or later. For the time being, only scenes created in the Neo Smart Blinds app can be integrated to Siri Shortcuts.

The Shortcuts app let you get things done with your apps, with just a tap or by asking Siri. You can also create custom shortcuts, simplifying everyday tasks by combining devices from multiple apps that offer Siri Shortcuts integration. The Siri Shortcuts app is available in Apple devices using iOS 12 or later.

Siri will only understand voice commands and custom phrases for Shortcuts said in the same language of the device language. Due to different pronunciation and spelling, it's also important to choose your country's language option (when applicable).
