    Having a difficult time finding an answer via search as the results get polluted.

    I'd like to be able to say "hey siri, unlock the door and turn on the lights" but can't seem to find a combination she's happy with. Do I have to do all commands separately? I know I could set up a scenario (is that the right term?) but then I'd have to explicitly create any and every combination I'd like to use right?

    For now, you'd have to set a scene that you want to set. Maybe a newer version of iOS will give Siri the smarts to understand multiple commands.

    Actually, in some rare cases, she does understand combinations. It is however very rare, and very few combinations, so for all intents and purposes, it's not a feature yet

    Do you have an example? If those who are successful at combo commands can share, we can find a pattern of what works and what does not work.

    Last I had a successful one was quite a while ago, and some quick experimenting here yielded no luck. But my last one was two queries for Wiki/Wolfram information.
