So I’m trying to do something that I thing is pretty simple but maybe it’s not. I want to make a box with an open/close sensor that when opened cues a playlist in Sonos then stops it when it closes.
I made a virtual switch and was able to use the speaker controller app to turn on a Sonos speaker but I can’t seem to have any control over the playlist and I can’t stop it by turning off the switch. I saw that there was a Sonos mood music app but I don’t see that anywhere in the Smartapps.
Any help would be great. Even if the help was simply saying that’s not possible.
Ok, so it looks like I do have one more question. I was able to find the queueUri info and copied that. I guess I’m not sure where I should paste that info. I’ve created both Speaker Control and Speaker Mood Music apps from the templates in the IDE but I can’t seem to find where to paste that info. Is there is another app that I should be using or a different place to paste this in?
You will need the CORE smartApp installed and it will require a little investment of time on your part if you are not familiar with it. Luckily, there is a lot of help available on the forum. Keep in mind, there may be a simpler solution or smartapp available but this is what I would use since I already have it configured for any custom automations I need. I well worth the time to learn because the possibilities are endless when you understand its potential. See links below.
