For those that are wanting to use Siri on the Apple Watch to control Vera you can see a demo of it working here: https://youtu.be/T5kibmQiTuM.

I used the VeraHomeKitBridge on this thread: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,31716.360.html, you can get the repo from Hackworth's github here: https://github.com/Hackworth/VeraHomeKitBridge and just follow the instruction on that page.

I installed it on an old Raspberry Pi B I had laying around, then installed Elgato Eve (free) on my iPhone and linked it to the VeraHomeKitBridge running on my Pi. After that Siri will work on your iPhone and Apple Watch. All the credit goes to Albeebe and Hackworth for their hard work.
Vera Lite (1), Trane Thermostat (1), Yale Deadbolt (1), Foscam FI9821w (4), GE 45602 (1), GE 45603 (2), Intermatic CA600(11)/CA3000(6)/CA5100(4)/CA3500(3), Aeon Labs MicroSmartSwitch (1), Aeon Door/Window Sensors (3), EnvisaLink 3 on DSC 1616 (1), OpenSprinklerPi

Well done sir and thanks for sharing, I've done 90% of this already but your workflow is far simpler. Cheers!

I have just been able with much tinkering, to in a sense....for $2.99 (and the cost of my time...) create an app using the Lu URL passes and an App called workflow which has a watch companion app. With it's logic I can now...click a button it will ask me..

Lights On/Off?

Which Lights (provides a list).

Then executes the URL.

It was a bit of a bear to set up but it feels almost like a native app for this type of thing at this point. Here is the link to the workflow. I'm honestly not sure how to copy this for some one else.

Any updates on a watch app?  I'll buy one the day you make the app :)
