Greetings ST community! I’ve been lurking and learning for a week or so. I stumbled in while searching for a what I was sure was going to be a no brainer off-the-shelf function: Play synchronized chime along with a custom phrase on a detailed schedule. Well, maybe not so easy, but still worth the effort of learning a whole new set of skills for me. This could end up being a really cool school bell system with all kinds of other potentials down the road for charter school that I work for. (I’m a teacher resident at the moment)
I have a few ideas how to implement, and I’ll be detailing them as I go, but I have a feeling there are some folks who know more about what’s available/possible/feasible, so I thought I’d put it out there. I’m willing to work at it, but ultimately this has to be pretty simple to maintain and operate day-to-day.
So, if you had a GH speaker in ~20 classrooms and wanted them to at the minimum play a few custom chimes on a schedule that rotates daily (A day, B day, minimum day, etc.) Even better than just chimes wold be chime + custom announcement ( [binnng] “Block Five” ) How would you go about it? Seems like there could be all kinds of combinations of bits for each segment of the job and I suspect that there is still a lot more I can learn. Thanks!
