Help needed in outputting Speak commands to Sonos speakers

Postby tmcgowan » Sun Feb 08, 2015 11:10 am

I'm in the process of retiring our WAF AB8SS 2 input to 8 output audio switch (currently controlled through HomeSeer). Since we already have Sonos speakers located throughout the house, I thought I might be able to send voice announcements (such as the garage door opening and caller ID information) to specific rooms using the Sonos speakers, rather than the hardwired speakers we're currently using..

Has anyone figured out how to do this?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

At this point in time not possible with our system. However, all Sonos speakers are DLNA devices and we can send audio files to the speakers using the MediaServer/MediaPlayer drivers. I just have not fully tested and enabled the PlayAudio command in the MediaPlayer driver. I'll put that on the short list.

Hello Dave,

Just wondering if you've had any luck enabling Sonos speakers to use the AV|x~Speak~Hello command to work?

Thanks,

-Todd
