Hello all. I’m closing on a condo in the next few weeks, and I plan to begin installation of a home automation system using Smart Things as the hub. I was hoping some of the experienced members here could offer pointers/references/advice/direction on how to implement some of the audio features I’d like to incorporate into my system.
My thoughts are that I do not want to be using wireless audio speakers, as they will not have the same level of quality as wired speakers. Anyone care to comment on that sentiment? That being said, are there in receivers that will take commands and stream music from Smart Things? Then I would have the receiver pipe the audio to wired speakers. Any info on available products would be much appreciated in this regards.
One other question, is there an available hardware to blast IR messages that is compatible with Smart Things? I’d like to be able to control the TV, DVD, and other IR devices.
