Get Indoor Temperature & Humidity Readings from Siri & HomePod
You may already know that you can get indoor temperature and humidity levels with HomePod Mini and the new HomePod using the Home app, but what you may not know is that you can also get this information from Siri.
Using any device that has Siri, whether it’s a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, and is connected to the same network that your HomePod or HomePod Mini with temperature and humidity sensors is located, simply ask the following requests:
- What is the indoor temperature?
- What is the humidity level?
If you have multiple HomePods or HomePod Minis, try being more specific by requesting data from a particular sensor or labeled HomePod:
- What is the indoor temperature in the kitchen?
- What is the humidity level in the bedroom?
You must have a HomePod Mini, or a 2nd gen HomePod, to have access to these features, and they must be updated to the latest versions of HomePodOS system software to unlock the capability to detect temperature and humidity with the device. If you have not done so already, update the HomePod system software and you’ll have access to these features, amongst others. You can also update HomePod through the Mac Home app if you prefer.
