Using Siri Shortcuts to Create a Christmas Scene And a Playlist

Basically, when the phrase “christmas christmas time is here” is used, a shortcut is activated on the users iPhone from the HomePod. The shortcut plays the playlist attached to the users appleID / iOS device, and activates the scene in the Home app.  

The scene “Christmas Scene” is attached to several lights and smart plugs, as well as a virtual switch that turns on the fireplace.
