HomePod and a Hue Light

Siri Light Colors

Update 8/31: Now with color samples

Finding the complete list of Siri light colors you can use with your HomeKit enabled lights, like Hue and Lifx, is surprisingly tough to find. Apple doesn’t provide a list of HomeKit or Siri supported colors. And some manufactures mention a few basic Siri colors, like this list for Phillips Hue, but most only give a handful of colors–not nearly exhaustive enough of what Siri understands. Colors are an approximation. What you see with your Smart Light might be a bit different.

So to solve this, I went through all the colors listed on ColorHexa to see what works. By using Siri and a Hue light connected to HomeKit, I tested each color. Of all the colors I tried (738), 662 work with Siri, while 76 do not. Below you’ll find the cumulative list of colors Siri supports and doesn’t support.

Quick note: If you use a different assistant, I also create lists for the other major assistants below:

Update: I pulled out the shades of white to make those easier to find. Also If you’re curious about what else you can do with Siri, check out my new series, Keeping Up With Siri.

One last note before we dive in: Testing Siri for different light colors was easy, but tedious due to speech errors. When using Siri on the iPhone, you are able to type in a command instead of only speaking it. I heavily used this feature for the trickier color names with difficult pronunciations. With these names, either I’m not pronouncing the name correctly or Siri doesn’t understand the name well. If you’re only using HomePod to change the color, you may run into trouble getting Siri to understand you correctly since you don’t have the option to type the name yourself.

FAQ

Can different manufactures support different colors with Siri?

No. All manufactures should support the same color names.

Manufactures don’t need to know the color name that you tell Siri. Instead, Apple controls the color naming, not manufactures themselves, although they do control what the actual color is on the light itself.

Siri and HomeKit seem to follow the same HSB color system that other ecosystems use to supply color information to devices. HomeKit’s documentation is a bit tougher to get access to, although you can go through the agreements to get access to their developer documentation here on the subject.

What HSB color values are being sent to manufactures?

Tough to say as Apple doesn’t post this info directly. However, color values should be pretty close to this color list.

Where did you find these color names?

Why are some colors not supported?

Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t provide a list of supported Siri light colors. Fortunately though, some manufactures do. What I’m doing is simply going through a list of possible colors and testing them. Apple may have internal reasons for not supporting a given color.

Do these colors work for every Voice Assistant, like Alexa and Google Assistant?

Each Voice Assistant understands many, but not all of the same colors. You can find other Voice Assistant Color Lists by looking at these Smart Light color articles.
