I’ve searched off and on to find an ideal speakers to use throughout the house for security.
Examples; play a recorded sound saying front door is open when my door triggers to open.
Play warnings sounds when global triggers initiate like lock all dead bolts
Play a siren when motion is detected when at an away status.
I’ve seen a lot of experience speakers but very limited in location.
The most ideal thing I’ve seen so far is AwoX StriimLIGHT Sl-w10 but I have no clue if it’s supported. Any suggestions before I go down this rabbit hole?
The strimlight is on the list of speakers confirmed to work with SmartThings by community members. It’s rather expensive, though, if all you want is voice announcements.
Did you check the cheap speaker topic?
Continuing the discussion from
Working Speakers List (13 Devices Confirmed) so as not to clutter that list:
How do you define “cheap”?
The Sony SRS X7 is a really nice Bluetooth and DLNA speaker at just under $200 new, or around $120 refurbished.
anything cheaper than that is not going to have the same kind of sound quality. The striimlight light bulb runs around $120, and that’s light and speaker. But if I was buying it for the speaker, I’d buy the Sony.
Has anyone tried it with the DLNA renderer?
From the last link, did see the possibility of the striimlight wifi but the twist I found earlier looks more promising.
I do have another project where I’m going to use Pi’s as a voice activated intercom system for the house. Since I’ll need speakers for those I could figure out a way to have it use those speakers as well.
