App developers don't have access to siri commands, shameful as it is.  The eception is for HomeKit which requires hardware manufacturers to support before the app can properly pick up commands (although I'm not familiar enough with it yet to know exactly how).

For VeraMate (and most apps), voice control is done via a third party, but it means it needs to be done inside the app.  If you open VeraMate, click on the "voice control" button, and you can specify commands.  It makes it less useful I know, but as soon as I find Apple give better Siri integration, VeraMate will use it.
