Hi! New to Homey, not Sonos nor Smart Home stuff. Also not afraid of coding, as that’s what I do.
So I need a suggestion how to achieve nicely working Sonos system using Homey and some physical switches on wall (now Aeotec WallMote Quads and Remotec ZRC-90).
I have Sonos in four rooms, Living Room, Kitchen, Bedroom and Office. Some of them having multiple speakers.
I already can click a button and music starts in Living Room. I can click another button and Kitchen joins to TV group. I can control volume individually, no problem.
Problem is that I do not necessarily always want TV to be playing music, I might want only Office. Maybe Office and Kitchen. So how can I achieve this? As I cannot define a flow that the speaker would join group TV, as TV is not playing anything.
Is there some ready feature I could use to achieve this? If not with Homey only, maybe with IFTTT?
I was thinking that I would have a device that works as a “master controller”. So I only control to that device when selecting playlists or whatever, that master controller does not have speaker, so its always silent. But other speakers can then always join that group when they want to play music.
I do not need to support case when rooms play different music. Any ideas? Thank you!
