I’ve been testing the waters with ST for a few weeks now with the home monitoring kit and an Aeotec multi motion sensor. I finally have my wife convinced that it’s a decent enough security “watchdog” that we want to equip the rest of the doors with open/close sensors and get an annunciator. I’ve been talking up the Sonos devices for a while (“Door is open!”, or “BARK BARK BARK!”) and was about to pull the trigger when I realized they DON’T support Bluetooth. I know that’s a dealkiller because we subscribe to Apple Music and would want to use bluetooth to send the music to the speaker. Sonos can’t stream Apple Music on its own.
If I’m not mistaken, the Bose SoundLink stuff will play from the online services and bluetooth, but can’t be triggered by an event. Is that correct?
So now on to find something that can be controlled to stream music on the device, play an MP3 from an iTunes server (my NAS), AND has Bluetooth functionality. Surely there’s something out there that’s decent and doesn’t have this glaring oversight.
