Use Siri to access system preferences
You can use Siri to access system preferences. All you need to do is create a contact and in the Web site field put the code for the system preference. for example.
Contact name is Bluetooth and the Web address is prefs:root=General&path=Bluetooth
Then activate Siri and say "Bluetooth" the contact card will open with a clickable link right to the Bluetooth settings.
Here are a few other common settings
Airplane Mode: prefs:root=Airplane_Mode
You can also create contacts to launch apps using the same procedure.
Create a contact called Youtube and put youtube:// for the URL
Same deal Say Youtube and click the link and the app will open.
EDIT: Added screen shots
Here is the web site i found this info on with more commands IDevice Daily Link

I was able to get to the settings this way, but not to the brightness option. This could be really cool,
EDIT: Tried it with Wi-Fi, and my iphone did a respring...is this safe?

I don't think you can since you are not sending a call to the app to do something. You are just creating a link to the app setting.
I am sure with a Jailbroken device it is possible, but this works on pure iPhone4s'

Doesn't quite work on my 4S, when I say 'bluetooth' or 'show me bluetooth' it shows me where the Bluetooth Sig is located in Seattle. I can however pull up the contact manually and tap the link, which works...

I put in the contact bluetooth and some times it comes up to the general settings with bluetooth on the page and half the time it goes to the general settings page. strange.
prefs:root=general&path=bluetooth is what i used.
