IMPORTANT: Webhooks get triggered when sent via most messaging Apps (e.g. Whatsapp) because they are being called in the background to show you a preview. So please copy and paste it directly into Siri/IFTTT to avoid leaking it like so, and as a consequence being triggered at random times. If you did share a webhook as described, please regenerate it and redo your setup.

About Siri Shortcuts

A shortcut is a quick way to get one or more tasks done with your apps. The Shortcuts app lets you create your own shortcuts with multiple steps. For example, build a “Unlock the door” shortcut that grabs the “Unlock Hook” and runs it, making the Keymitt Smart Lock do the desired action.

You can run any shortcut that you have by asking Siri on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, HomePod or MAC. Once set up with your account the Shortcut created will be synchronized with all the devices connected.

Requirements

Running Siri Shortcuts requires iOS 12 or later on iPhone, iPod touch, HomePod, or Apple Watch Series 3 or later, and iOS 12 or iPadOS or later on iPad.

Setting up a Shortcut

Here is an example of how to create the voice command to execute the Unlocking Action on Keymitt Smart Lock.

Access the Shortcuts App on your device and tap the “+” symbol to create a New Shortcut.

Add the action that you want Siri to execute and select the type of action -> Web

In the Web section, find the option “Get Contents of URL'' and select it. Once done, go to the Keymitt app and copy the “Unlock Webhook''.

Paste the copied URL in the dedicated URL space. By default, the Method is set as "GET", if not please adjust it accordingly.

Allow the popup that appears in order for the Shortcut to be able to run the Webhook.

Name your Shortcut the way you want to say it via the voice command (you can be creative) and click “Done”. You will find your new Shortcut now available on the list of all the shortcuts. Note: on older iPhones, you may need to restart the phone for Siri to start recognizing and linking the voice commands to the shortcuts.

If you wish to make the Shortcut appear on the Home Screen/ Apple Watch or in a Share Sheet you can do that by going into the corresponding Shortcut Details.

You can use the same process to set up the “Lock Hook” and all the Keymitt Push’s Webhooks.
