I’m in the process of setting up a “spa mode” where the SO can push one button and have all of the following take place: (1) lights in bathroom dim and enter color changing mode responsive to music; (2) spotify plays “relaxation” playlist; (3) essential oil diffuser turns on.
Here’s my thoughts on accomplishing the above. I feel like I have all the pieces but if anyone has suggestions on the best way to integrate, I’d be very appreciative.
- Brain - ST hub V.2
- Interface - $50 Amazon Fire Tablet running SmartTiles with SharpTools, Tasker, Hue Disco, and Spotify in the background. Mounted in the bathroom.
- Lights Hue lights installed in ceiling.
- Speaker?? (bluetooth, WIFI?)
- SmartThings outlet for essential oil distributor.
My thought process so far has been to set up a SmartThings Routine as “Spa Mode.”
Essential Oil Diffuser:
Easy. Enter Spa Mode = Turn on Outlet.
More difficult. I have placed a control tab to open spotify on SmartTiles and then can play from there, but I would really prefer it to be a one-push solution where entering spa-mode automatically starts the spotify playlist. Any ideas?
The hardest so far. Once Hue Disco mode is entered its easy. The Hue Disco app controls the lights from the Amazon Fire tablet and syncs it to the music. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.ijsdesign.huedisco&hl=en. The problem is how to launch Hue Disco automatically.
I have tried playing with tasker and SharpTools to recognize the mode and then run Hue Disco (i.e. http://sharptools.boshdirect.com/examples/react-to-specific-mode-changes) but can’t seem to get tasker to integrate. Hopefully not a function of the Fire Tablet. Any suggestions?
THANK YOU ALL FOR ANY HELP! I will update with results as I get things figured out.
