    Is there any way to use siri with nest? I know siri was opened to developers in ios10 so will we be seeing more updates soon?

    Yes.

    I'm running Homebridge on a raspberry pi. This acts as a HomeKit bridge and exposes Nest, amongst other devices.

    I cheated.

    I run Domoticz home automation software on a raspberry pi. There is a pre-configured SD card image with this on, and it includes the homebridge software too so it was simply a matter of changing the config and switching it on.

    There are other ways to install homebridge without domoticz. The wiki https://github.com/nfarina/homebridge/wiki has links to installing on other platforms.
