Last week we saw how a developer created a proxy server to sit between Siri and Apple to make certain commands perform command line functions. Another developer today took that proxy server and hooked it up to his Viper Car system which allows him to turn his car off and on.
The “Siri Proxy” plugin I wrote handles interaction with a php script that runs on my web server. The php script, which I developed months ago for personal use, allows me to send commands to my car which has a Viper SmartStart module installed.
Current commands accepted are: “Vehicle Arm”, “Vehicle Disarm”, “Vehicle Start”, “Vehicle Stop”, “Vehicle Pop Trunk”, and “Vehicle Panic”.
Siri hacking is rapidly turning into a fun sport. How long until Apple blesses third parties with this type of functionality?
