Raspberry Pi Hack Turns Siri Into Garage Door Opener

If you are the proud owner of an Apple iOS device with Siri voice-activated technology and a Raspberry Pi computer, you can now combine your two pieces of modern technology to create a garage door opener.

The hack was created by “DarkTherapy” by using “SiriProxy running on the Raspberry Pi, along with wiringPi to access the Pi’s GPIO pins and turn a relay on/off.”

Combining the iPhone 5’s tech with Raspberry Pi literally allowed for voice activated garage door operation.

DarkTherapy’s forum post explains how to accomplish the hack, and we have the video below:

There’s nothing like taking old played out tech and making it modern. Now Apple can add “garage door opener” to the list of things it can do that the Samsung Galaxy S III is lacking.
