Can SmartThings help me?
I’m thinking about purchasing a SmartThings hub and some SmartSense motion sensors to start my home automation journey. Part of my automation plan includes the ability to “move” my music with me as I move around different rooms in my house. I’d like my home to be smart enough to detect what room I’ve just entered and route my music to the appropriate stereo. For instance, I’d like to automatically send my music to the upstairs stereo when I walk into my bedroom and switch to the downstairs stereo when I walk into the kitchen. This way, I wouldn’t have to break out my iPhone and switch the stereo manually every time.
I understand that SmartThings works with SONOS music systems and the appropriate rules for doing this could probably be established with IFTTT, but I currently own two AirPlay systems and would really like to avoid reinvesting in SONOS right now. Can anyone please tell me if I could get this working with AirPlay rather than SONOS?
Thank you in advance for your help!
