Switch, Outdoor Switch, Wall Outlet and Wall Switch have the ability to change their Service Type. These allow Siri® to recognize the device as a light or fan. Other HomeKit products may have additional options, depending on the product.
For example, when you say, “Siri, turn on the lights in my home,” Siri will recognize all the products in the "Light" Service Group and turn on all the connected lights in the home.
If the name of the product includes the words “Light” or “Fan,” the app will change the Service Type automatically.
To change a product's Service Type after setup is complete, follow the steps below:
- Tap on the product in the iDevices Connected app
- Tap the product name in the upper left-hand corner
- Tap “Service Settings”
- Tap “Associated Service”
- Choose the appropriate Service Type; Lightbulb, Fan or None.
