Checking HomeKit accessory battery levels with Siri

If you’ve got a HomeKit setup, you probably already know you can ask Siri to report information such as whether your lights are on, whether your doors are locked, and what the temperature is in your house. However, if you’ve got battery-powered accessories, such as Elgato’s Eve sensors, it looks like Apple also snuck in the ability to query battery levels into a recent iOS update.

Simply ask Siri “What is the battery level of…” followed by your accessory name, and it will report it back as a percentage. You can also ask using a room name, provided you’ve only got one battery-powered accessory assigned to that particular room.
