Bluetooth-Based Occupancy Sensor RoomMe Now Supports Siri Shortcuts

Intellithings today announced that its Bluetooth-based smart home occupancy sensor RoomMe now supports Siri Shortcuts.


RoomMe, successfully funded on Indiegogo in 2017, leverages the unique Bluetooth signature of a person's smartphone or smartwatch to identify who that person is and which room they are in, and automatically adjust settings such as temperature, lighting, music, and more to that person's preferences.

Now, RoomMe users can create a Siri Shortcut to manually execute "charms" on demand. This gives users the flexibility to take advantage of their pre-defined room settings without walking into that room. Intellithings has provided instructions on how to enable Siri integration with RoomMe in its FAQ under Voice Assistants.

RoomMe sensors are $69 each, with discounted pricing available for bundles of two or more sensors. Siri Shortcuts functionality requires version 1.5.0 of the RoomMe app, released yesterday.

RoomMe is also compatible with HomeKit.

They say "smart watches" but it's not working with Apple Watch is it?

Edit: "Currently, only Samsung smart watches running Tizen OS v4.0 and up are supported."

Yeah thought so. Unless room occpuancy is going to work with my Apple Watch it's a no go - and why they haven't enabled the Apple Watch to sense their very own iBeacons i'll never know. I've got enough battery life for two days, give me the option!
