Trying to have newflash and weather on sonos when motion detected between certain hours

Looking to setup a routine when I get up in the morning to automatically play the weather and news flash when motion is detected in the kitchen. I have serveral smartapps and devices installed that I believe can do this, however having some trouble figuring out how to put it all together. I have a Smarthub, Motion detector, Alexa, Sonos, AskAlexa, BigTalker2, etc. can someone help me get this going?

Thanks in advance

Thanks I havnt installed webCoRE yet, installing now. Any gotchas associated with the install?

Pretty simple install - i will have to play around as it appears to get a bit more complex from here.

Awesome I will start working on this now. I was able to get BigTalker2 to say the weather "Good Morning! %weathercurrent% %weathertoday% and have it kick off via motion between hours 6am and 8am, however having it run just once per day, haven’t found a way to do that yet. Going to give webCoRE a go now.

Does this look right?

The logs look good however, no sound?

Yes, I guess I should rename that - its a Sonos Playbar

I would personally change the IF to “if motion changes to active”.
thanks for the pointer Robin, you are a fountain of knowledge, i just copied your idea…

I configured Location Mode to switch from Night to Home when “Things started happening between x and y time” via a motion sensor. Big Talker is then configured to say Good morning followed by the weather report when Mode changed to Home (but not from Away).

This is how I get my morning weather report as well. Speak only x times per day for an event has been a somewhat regular request for BigTalker. I plan to implement it soon.
